As much as I repsect your knowledge and opinion, I can't believe that you still hold to that 15k date.
At the minimum it's 23 k, the securely dated toca de preia rock shelter in Brazil, or 30 -60 k , topper, cactus hill, Burnham, valsequillo or older, Witt, and calico.
I have said it before, and I will say it again...The Australian Native Man IS the Original European Man.
A mixture of original Homo Erectus, Neanderthal and Denisovian, from the Ice locked reaches of the Ice age (maybe even pre Ice age). Migrated south to Warmer clims, but still left some tribes in the original homeland of Europe...to evolve to us whiteys.
Native Australians STILL bear children with blonde/light brown and reddish coloured hair.
Many tribes of Australian Natives are hairy (hairy chest and hairy back), straight/wavey hair, EXACTLY like modern Europeans, and in difference to Asians, and Most Africans.
An ancient European hunter-gatherer man had dark skin and blue eyes, a new genetic analysis has revealed.
The analysis of the man, who lived in modern-day Spain only about 7,000 years ago, shows light-skin genes in Europeans evolved much more recently than previously thought.
The findings, which were detailed today (Jan. 26) in the journal Nature, also hint that light skin evolved not to adjust to the lower-light conditions in Europe compared with Africa, but instead to the new diet that emerged after the agricultural revolution, said study co-author Carles Lalueza-Fox, a paleogenomics researcher at Pompeu Fabra University in Spain.
Many scientists have believed that lighter skin gradually arose in Europeans starting around 40,000 years ago, soon after people left tropical Africa for Europe's higher latitudes. The hunter-gatherer's dark skin pushes this date forward to only 7,000 years ago, suggesting that at least some humans lived considerably longer than thought in Europe before losing the dark pigmentation that evolved under Africa's sun.
