"All humans originated at single point in Africa"
Whites would rather have you think they
originated from apes than from Black Africans. The History Channel has
recently aired a special on the evolution of man. The producers
actively misinformed viewers about information that would lead a prudent
person to seriously doubt the validity of the specimens used. Fraudulent
evidence and grossly exaggerated findings are more or less the norm in paleo-anthropology.
The series would have the viewer to believe the origin of the Black
man was in Africa, White men in Europe, and Asian men in Asia. The
channel showed homo sapiens with aboriginal
facial features with a larger brain than most folks living today
(Neanderthals). Neanderthals, once thought to be our ancestor, are almost
universally accepted as being completely homo sapiens today.
New research published in the journal Nature (2007
19 July) has proved the single origin of humans theory by combining studies
of global genetic variations in humans with skull measurements across the
world. The research, at the University of Cambridge and funded by the
Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), represents a
final blow for supporters of a multiple origins of humans theory. New genetic research claims to have "proved" that all
humans originate from one single ancestor in sub-Saharan Africa. Researchers
until now have been divided by two competing theories, the other holding
that populations of modern humans evolved at several locations around the
New research published in the scientific journal 'Nature' aims to
prove the single origin of humans theory by combining studies of global
genetic variations in humans with skull measurements across the world. The
research, at the University of Cambridge, is said to "represent a final blow
for supporters of a multiple origins of humans theory."
Competing theories on the origins of anatomically modern humans claim that
either humans originated from a single point in Africa and migrated across
the world, or different populations independently evolved from homo erectus
to home sapiens in different areas.
The researchers studied genetic diversity of human populations around the
world and measurements of over 6,000 skulls from across the globe in
academic collections. Their research knocks down one of the last arguments
in favor of multiple origins. The new findings show that a loss in genetic
diversity the further a population is from Africa is mirrored by a loss in
variation in physical attributes.
The lead researcher explained: "The origin of
anatomically modern humans has been the focus of much heated debate. Our
genetic research shows the further modern humans have migrated from Africa
the more genetic diversity has been lost within a population."
"However, some have used skull data to argue that modern humans originated
in multiple spots around the world. We have combined our genetic data with
new measurements of a large sample of skulls to show definitively that
modern humans originated from a single area in sub-Saharan Africa.
We all can trace the root of our genealogical tree to the same
forefather and foremother - which were modern human beings. The merry couple
probably lived in south-eastern Africa. Just look at the many fakes that
have popped up over the years: Piltdown Man, Java Man, Heidelberg Man,
and Peking Man.
The research team also found that genetic diversity decreased in populations
the further away from Africa they were - a result of "bottlenecks" or events
that temporarily reduced populations during human migration. They then
studied an exceptionally large sample of human skulls. Taking a set of
measurements across all the skulls the team showed that not only was
variation highest amongst the sample from south-eastern Africa but that it
did decrease at the same rate as the genetic data the further the skull was
away from Africa.
The theory of human evolution is built upon
fakes, exaggerations and most of all an unsupported premise. To
ensure the validity of a single origin evidence the researchers attempted to
use their data to find non-African origins for modern humans. To test the
alternative theory for the origin of modern humans we tried to find an
additional, non-African origin. It just did not work. Findings show that humans originated in a single area in sub-Saharan
