Apologies in advance for Grimnal.....Most of us know how to spell in Australia, obviously someone played a joke and moved his keyboard keys
Now, the Platypus is not only a Mammal, it is a Monotreme....Only TWO monotremes currently exist on Planet Earth, both in Australia.
They Are Mammals that Lay Eggs.........Maybe they are related to Dinosaurs and Lacerta??.
As is usual, and becoming more prevalent, Scientists do not know everything. In fact their work is mostly Theory, conjecture and plain guessing.
In the early 2000s a Biogeneticist stated that ALL Homo Sapiens come from an "Eve" that existed in East Africa 66,000 years ago...not before, not
This is despite knowledge that Neanderthal man was in Europe up to 250,000 years ago, not to mention all the other Homo Species spread around the
Earth anywhere up to 1-2 million years ago.
Indeed, apparently Homo Sapien teeth have been discovered in Israel dated to 400,000 years ago.
Native Australian peoples have genetic traits similar to Asia and India (which makes sense if they came from Europe). In Fact the Australian Dark man
is Considered Caucasian (they have the Neanderthal gene), Not African.
The Huge Diversity of "Types" of Humans on Africa, is greater than all types on the rest of the planet.
Yet, They seem to be all classed as "Negroid", even tho a Bushman is so different from a Masai, they could be from different planets.....yet they
live on the same continent that the "Experts" say they all came from only 66000 years ago.
It is well known that the European Neanderthal had a spoken language, some consider that "Language" came from outside of Africa and was imported.
Scientists contradict each other so much on their "Theories", we honestly may never know for sure how man come about...
Of Course, none of this considers the "Alien" equation, or what the Lizard Men think of us...
