The "out of Africa" hypothesis proposes that all humans alive today are descended from a small group of sub- Saharan Africans who made their way out of the continent about 60,000 years ago.

What's that again about a small group of individuals couldn't possibly contain enough genetic variety to result in a healthy population? Something about all the people in the world couldn't have come from Noah and his sons? I guess that's only a problem if you believe in creation. If you believe in evolution, it's perfectly reasonable. Yeah, right....

WHAT!?You tryin' to say that when EVOLUTION makes a 'mutation' that it's wonderfulness does NOT progate to ALL of the mutatee's offspring - a 'small population'?
