Oldest Evidence of Humans
Outside Africa Discovered

Newsweek, by Rolf Quam

Original Article

Posted By:kono, 2/11/2019 8:36:47 AM

New fossil finds over the past few years have been forcing anthropologists to reexamine our evolutionary path to becoming human. Now the earliest modern human fossil ever found outside the continent of Africa is pushing back the date for when our ancestors left Africa. (Snip) The earliest humans, referred to as hominins by anthropologists, lived around six to seven million years ago in Africa. These early evolutionary ancestors are recognized as belonging to the human family mainly because their bones reveal clear signs of bipedalism: They walked on two feet.

What are the odds the anthropologists who call these fossils of humans do not consider unborn babies today as human life? When this sort of science is integral to the foundation of the academic elitists´ views of life and reality, how can anything built upon it have much intellectual or spiritual integrity?

Whut? No way! Anthropological experts already told us we’re all Africans and owe everything to our brave cousins who stayed there to tough it out. The rest of us are just cowardly mutants.

There is no attribution to the actual person doing the study and the article is conjecture of the writer of the article. Quam´s ancestors may have crawled up from some swamp, but mine did not. My ancestors were created in the image of God and resemble Him. Besides, evolution is merely a poorly thought out theory, not actual scientific fact. Only the likes of Al Gore believe it is settled science. Poor thing.

What a find. From a partial set of teeth they found that the owner walked upright, had a dental plan and had a tool kit from Home Depot. Make it up as you go along. Got it.

#4 cont’d,

Recent paleoanthropological studies have suggested that modern humans migrated from Africa as early as the beginning of the Late Pleistocene, 120,000 years ago. Hershkovitz et al. now suggest that early modern humans were already present outside of Africa more than 55,000 years earlier (see the Perspective by Stringer and Galway-Witham). During excavations of sediments at Mount Carmel, Israel, they found a fossil of a mouth part, a left hemimaxilla, with almost complete dentition.

There is a great deal of detailed material, images, etc.

I´m sure there will always be the question of "Where did we come from?" Nice to see some research. I do think some of that money could have been used to figure out "How long can we stay here?" I mean prolong life.
I believe we did "Arrive" from some place, (some call it Heaven), and we´ll go back someday. I kinda like it here, wanna stay a long time.

I have always contended that modern humans (Homo Sapiens) are much, much older than most anthropological dictums suggest. The proof of that is in our genetic code. But, finding corroborating proof has been very difficult. Apparently, this find has provided that.

However, tracing us back to the "Adam and Eve" mutation is going to prove all but impossible. I think the location of this very early evidence of super ancient modern humans is encouraging. It´s closer proximity to the Tigris-Euphrates valley is quite a telling thing for me. When we also consider the incredible finds on the opposed axis of the find on the Göbekli Tepe plateau, humans have a tremendous unknown history of several hundreds of thousands of years yet to be discovered.

However, I question the idea that merely walking upright is proof of being human. After all, Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi walk upright, don´t they?

Nope! Life didn´t start in Africa! Had it, we would all be living as they do now... Mud huts and no sewer systems and little electricity! The continent hasn´t advanced for centuries! Well, there is the advance of stealing white farmers land and kicking them out of the country or killing them. That is awesome... Can´t wait to see these farms in 5 years!

In a related matter, the Meadowcroft excavation in Southwest Pennsylvania shows arrows and spear heads that clearly predate the ´native american´ arrival from Asia some 14,000 years ago.
It takes the wind out of the sails of ´native americans,´ as it proves there were late to the party.
The weapons are identical to those found in caves in spain, well before the arrival of Lizzie Warren´s and Ward Churchill´s indiAN ANCESTORS.

"Out of Africa" was never anything other than a theory. In recent years it has begun to look more and more like a false one, like the "Clovis first" theory. Darwin is next. But then, some still adhere to Freudian nonsense. Faulty theories, once mainstreamed and taught as fact, are extremely hard to kill, e.g., anthropogenic global warming.

It is said that chimpanzees have 98% of the same chromosomal make up of human beings....

That 2% makes all the difference!

There is no "missing link" because to follow Darwin, and genetics, a MUTATION would have to become DOMINANT and prevail and this does not happen.

for life to come from a single-celled slime and become a reptile and become a mammal doesn´t happen and has NEVER been proven--

While there IS evidence of "natural selection" among species, there has never been any certifiable PROOF of one species turning into another species because the mutations which are so rare as to almost be impossible would have to become dominant and stay mutated over epochs of time.

God wins every time!

New York - Facebook announced on Friday that the social network had exposed the private photos of millions of users without their permission. The company said a bug recently allowed third-party app developers to access photos people may not have shared publicly. Facebook believes as many as 6.8 million users could be affected. The Irish Data Protection Commission, the body that oversees Facebook´s compliance with European regulations, said on Friday that it had launched a "statutory inquiry" into Facebook as a result of multiple breaches the company had informed them about this year.

But in the early days of the campaign, she’s had to answer questions about the “legitimacy” of her “blackness.” Online, stories have circulated suggesting that Harris is not African American because her parents are immigrants and she spent some of her childhood in Canada. During an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” radio show Monday, hosts DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God asked Harris about that. Harris pushed back. “I’m black, and I’m proud of being black.

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

The two hottest commodities in the Democratic Party are Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez has often displayed a surprising lack of knowledge for someone who apparently is a college graduate. Don’t get me started on the “Green New Socialism.” But she outdid herself yesterday. The context was Amazon’s announcement that it would not, after all, build a second corporate headquarters in Long Island City, which I understand is close to, but not within, Ocasio-Cortez’s district.

Millions of Americans may be sorely disappointed. Unless Mueller files a detailed indictment charging members of the Trump campaign with conspiring with Russia, the public may never learn the full scope of what Mueller and his team has found — including potentially scandalous behavior that doesn´t amount to a provable crime.

And yet, America owes him a big thank-you.
