Scientists could be forced to re-write the history of the evolution of modern man after the discovery of 400,000-year-old human remains.
Until now, researchers believed that homo sapiens, the direct descendants of modern man, evolved in Africa about 200,000 years ago and gradually migrated north, through the Middle East, to Europe and Asia.
Recently, discoveries of early human remains in China and Spain have cast doubt on the 'Out of Africa' theory, but no-one was certain.

I'm an not surprised by this, i've been studying the sumerian tablets for some time now and this discovery makes them even more valid, not only is almost every religious text based on these 6,000 year old documents but now there is evidence to support their claims

just another chance to glorify the already 'chozen' members of our esteemed race.

This could just be the teeth a Neanderthal and not necessarily modern man.
in fact it's most likely that of a Neanderthal.
Interesting article nonetheless
But no this does not change the evolutionary picture
