Fish may have once swum across the Sahara, a finding that could shed light on how humanity made its way out of Africa, researchers said.

They rode on the backs of fish?

The Sahara was once a lush forest, IIRC.

Every once and awhile I feel like quacking. Does that help?

The Sahara is the largest hot desert in the world, and would seem a major barrier for any humans striving to migrate off the continent.

As if the climate of this region would be identical during a major Ice Age.

If the Sahara once contained large bodies of water, couldn’t that be an indication that there was once more water (in liquid form) on the surface of the earth than there is now?

And wouldn’t THAT potentially be an indication that the polar ice caps were SMALLER at that time than they are now?

And wouldn’t THAT be an indication that the earth was WARMER then than it is now?

Could that be POSSIBLE?

Of course. They are still in the desert on the planet Arrakis (Dune), they are called Sand Trout.

How exactly do climate conditions which persisted some 6 to 10 thousand years ago impact the out of Africa theory? It seems that climate over the last 500,000 years (or perhaps 7mil years) would have to be considered together with the fossil record. Cherry picking doesn’t usually work.

hmmm...

The cradle of humanity lies south of the Sahara, which begs the question as to how our species made its way past it.

Archaeologists Claim to Have Found Oldest Human Remains in Israel

Avi Gopher, who led the team, told Agence France-Presse that it calls into question the widely held view that modern humans originated in Africa.

DUHHHH!

The easiest way past the Sahara is to follow the banks of the Nile from Lake Victoria!
