"Science" marches on. John McCain is from Arizona. Lindsey Graham is from SC. Could it be?

The father of all men is 340,000 years old

"Perry did not descend from the genetic Adam. In fact, his Y chromosome was so distinct that his male lineage probably separated from all others about 338,000 years ago."

Well we know the oldest female is a million years old so 338,000 don't seem that much..

Whodda thunk that some guy from South Carolina would prove that men have been around for 340,000 years. It’s a strange world we live in these days.

I bet he chased women, smoked cigars and drank whiskey every day of his life too!

Wait a minute! There's something wrong here - they've lost a couple of millions of years. We've heard it repeatedly until now - 'man has been on the earth for millions of years'. Now they want to roll it back to only 340K?

They never cease to amaze, these 'scientists.'

Truth is, man has only been on this earth for a little over 4000 years - per a book called the Bible.

“Father of all humankind is 340,000 years old”

So who is he, Connor MacLeod? Suppose they mean he lived 340,000 years ago, not that he’s that old?

Good to see the earliest date for humanity being pushed back even further. Previously it was 250K, now 340K.

Just imagine all the civilizations that could have arisen, fallen, and all remains disappeared it that time frame (our current civilization is at best only 6K old, although Hindu literature would put that date back an additional 16K).

If each civilization lasted just 10K and it took an additional 10K for all remains to subsume to Nature, then dividing by 20 we get something like 17 prior civilizations. No need for Aliens to explain the oddities and anomalies found in various places.
