I still find it interesting that people are claiming that this view is "anti-science" when the people putting it forward are in this case.....scientists. In this field of study. And the reason that their claims about Asians' ancestor (or one of them) having been in Asia for a much longer period of time is being discounted is because.....they're Asian.
So people are discounting scientists on the basis that they don't like those scientist's conclusions because those scientists are....from a different race. Or for the more politically correct - they have features which are distinct.
And that by claiming that their difference might be because they have a genetic ancestral contributor which has been in Asia for longer than is currently claimed is considered .... racist.
How DARE you claim to have a unique isolated genetic contributor. Evil Chinese.
The irony in this thread is just AWESOME. But there is really only so much of it I can put up with at a time.

Do you agree that this fusion would have initially made reproduction difficult, and thus the survival of this trait was unlikely?
How do you explain all humans today having this trait if we evolved from separate ancestors?
How do you explain all human mitochondria pointing back to one distant human female ancestor?
How do you explain human genes all pointing back to one human male ancestor?
How do you explain the fact that human "races" are closer to each other genetically than they are to any simian ancestor?
And lastly, do you have any reason to believe the Out Of Africa theory is not possible?
