The first modern people evolved in southern Africa more than 60,000 years ago - and not in the east of the continent as most scientists believe, a study concludes. After analysing DNA samples from 27 populations in modern-day Africa, researchers say the most likely location for the 'cradle of humanity' is the Kalahari desert region of South Africa, Namibia and Botswana. The modern-day click-speaking bushman from the desert show the greatest genetic diversity of any Africans - suggesting that their home was the birthplace of the first true Homo sapiens.
Originators: The home of the modern day click-speaking bushman in the Kalahari desert is the birthplace of the first true Homo sapiens, scientists claim
Most experts now believe that modern humans evolved in Africa between 150,000 and 60,000 years ago and then migrated to the Near East, Europe, Asia and eventually America

it appears to me that there is a current dogma today which states that H. Sapien came from Africa. It is so embedded in academia that no evidence can shake it, or no idiotic statement supporting it will be questioned.IMHO
All this sounds like unadulterated pure BS...
The sum total of things viewed as miracles in the Bible is probably somewhere between 20 and 50. Evolution on the other hand requires believing in a trans-finite sequence of absolute zero-probability events and probabilistic miracles. Which is the religion?
When I read that the first thing I thought of was that great old movie.......
The Gods Must Be Crazy
All Time Great Flick!
Anyone who hasn't seen it is missing out on a good movie.
When I was in the Navy machinery division named ourselves "The Raging Rhinos" because all we did we run around stomping out fires.
No wonder we like Coca Cola.
I remember that point of view, and probably first read it on your post.
As I recall, most theories about animal life start with all life beginning in the seas.
Don’t dolphins communicate in a ‘click’ language? Perhaps we are descended from dolphins or at least are cousins who left the sea in search of....
Next time I see a dolphin, I’m gonna say “Hi cuz,” and see what happens.
Gotta fit the observations into the worldview, donchaknow?
The worldview (ie, the presuppositions) come first,
and then all interpretations of evidential observations is filtered through those presuppositions.
LOL! When I saw this thread the first thing I thought of was that movie. Great movie BTW!
Not bad, not bad at all. Although, dolphins have internal testicles.
I assure you from personal experience, the scenes about the Land Rover were not slapstick comedy. They were sober well-researched absolutely accurate documentary. The replacement in the Kalahari of the Land Rover by Toyota trucks absolutely eliminated the romance of Africa. It removed all the adventure in a breakdown a zillion miles from nowhere.
Ckik,clik,clik. (translation. And a good thing they are internal. Wives will be discouraged from coveting)
