The hairlessness is a guess; fire use, however, is supported by hearth evidence. AFAIK, to at least 600,000 years ago.

Thnaks for the reply. As others have mentioned, there is a tremendous amount of guesswork in this so-called "science" article. The hairlessness is (as you say) a guess. And if fire has been dated to 600,000 years ago, isn't it crazy for the article to double that to 1.2M years?
Theories are okay. Filling in gaps by creating hypotheses is the nature of science. But I'd say this article is about 95% guesswork, with the gaps in guesses being filled in by a few facts.
