Good, you break one and show us the results.

If you get something different than my tests, let me know. Now you do the test and let's see you do repeat what you see at the museum exhibit with something besides imagination. And try to get the angles right. You are a flintknapper aren't you? Or are you calling this reference a liar? [rebuildingcivilization.com]

Giant clue: Have you found a hominin yet that breaks open molars for marrow or to make tools? Well, no hominin or animal is stupid enough to break femur heads or teeth for marrow. And if they did smash and break the femur head it would look just like the smashed molars.

Richard Cerutti claims to have at least some experience at flintknapping...enough to know he couldn't duplicate their femur head breaks. Or maybe they tried and are hiding the results, just like here:

[news.nationalgeographic.com]
"Can the researchers do anything else to back up their claim?
Yes. Deméré and his colleagues are currently examining the stone tools from the site for protein residues. If they really were used to smash the mastodon bone, microscopic bits of mastodon likely would have been ground into the rocks’ nooks and crannies."
