Skip to comments.Modern humans left Africa much earlier

Researchers have identified the remains of the earliest known modern humans to have left Africa.
New dating of fossils from Israel indicates that our species (Homo sapiens) lived outside Africa around 185,000 years ago, some 80,000 years earlier than the previous evidence.
Details appear in the journal Science.
The co-lead researcher, Prof Israel Hershkovitz, told BBC News that the discovery would fundamentally alter ideas of recent human evolution.
"We have to rewrite the whole story of human evolution, not just for our own species but all the other species that lived outside of Africa at the time," the researcher, from Tel Aviv University, explained.
Prof Chris Stringer of London's Natural History Museum, who was not involved in the study, said: "The find breaks the long-established 130,000-year-old limit on modern humans outside of Africa.

They may have looked somewhat modern, but not intelligent enough to survive.
As usual, I stopped reading when the article mentioned that humans were around 80,000 to 185,000 years ago.
No proof, just a screwed up theory like Global Warming.
Neither of which can be proved.
Yet they claim they need proof God exists, and there is more evidence of God existing than there is for their screwed up theories.
Can you blame them?
Amazing. Even 185,000 years ago there were people who knew Africa was a shithole and wanted out of there.
It was a dark gloomy day in April when the mid-day pause came up and Larry said to Marvin while gazing at the African plains...”We gotta get out of this sithole”.
Marvin kinda agreed, saying...”Anyplace would be better than this”.
So Larry and Marvin picked up their bags, told the wives of their desire to leave, and everyone hauled off to Europe. 180,000 years have passed, and Marvin would happily say (if alive today), that was the best decision of his life.
...and the Prof’s name is Stringer...like in along
Proof is in human mitochondrial DNA which goes back 250,000 years. There are numerous peer-reviewed studies documenting this all over the web.
We left because it was a $hithole!
They obviously had some seers who predicted what would happen to Africa....
Humans soon realized that Africa was a ****hole they needed to escape from.
Maybe the earlier Homo sapiens emigrants from Africa encountered Neanderthals...and were killed and eaten by them (tasty...). Later Homo sapiens were meaner and smarter and killed off the Neanderthals.
Yea, and thousands of so-called scientists tell us that Global Warming created by man is a fact.
Go bark up another tree, I don’t by into pseudo science nor pseudo geology.
To claim what you believe is to disbelieve in God. Too much evidence proves otherwise.
I believe in God. You go ahead and put man’s wisdom over God, and I’ll pray for you.
They’re still leaving Africa for Sweden, UK, etc
“To claim what you believe is to disbelieve in God.”
No. It is not. It is to believe that however God created the universe, He did it in a way that left the fossil record behind.
So bitter are you, sad.
So we’re all African-Americans now, where’s my Reparations?
