"modern humans" arose out of africa, but the even earlier cromagnons and neanderthals originated somewhere else like europe
neanderthal genes represent 6% of the human genome and so did the neanderthals and cromagnons migrate into africa because of the freezing ice age temperatures further north?
(Did they) then mate with pre-human ape or monkey people, for lack of a better word, which resulted in modern humans?
Human footprints found in Mexico could challenge the current consensus about how and when humans first arrived in the Americas. The team from Bournemouth and Liverpool John Moores Universities that discovered the footprints believes that they are 40,000 years old, which would be some 28,500 years older than previous human finds from this region.

The real question is why are some people so threatened by evolution?
I think the answer is that it undermines their self serving belief system that the world was "created" just for us to destroy and exploit.
That and they are afraid they'll be left behind if the human race evolves (culturally I mean).

Was it considered that all breeds of dogs have wolf ancestry? They sure look different.
A research team at Linköping University in Sweden has established that the changes are heritable, although they do not affect the DNA structure.
Humans kept Red Junglefowl as livestock about 8000 years ago. Evolutionarily speaking, the sudden emergence of an enormous variety of domestic fowl of different colours, shapes and sizes has occurred in record time. The traditional Darwinian explanation is that over thousands of years, people have bred properties that have arisen through random, spontaneous mutations in the chickens’ genes.
The results suggest that domestication has led to epigenetic changes. For more than 70 % of the genes, domesticated chickens retained a higher degree of methylation. Since methylation is a much faster process than random mutations, and may occur as a result of stress and other experiences, this may explain how variation within a species can increase so dramatically in just a short time.
Nätt and Jensen's research may lead to a review of the important foundations for the theory of evolution.
Evolution theory and the Out of Africa hypothesis have been disproved. If you want my personal opinion, I think we are down to aliens did it. Maybe someday I will give you my theory. But first, I would love to hear you defend the dead beetle of Evolutionary theory. The theory that was.
The Ardipithecus ramidus fossils were discovered in Ethiopia's harsh Afar desert at a site called Aramis in the Middle Awash region, just 46 miles (74 kilometers) from where Lucy's species, Australopithecus afarensis, was found in 1974. Radiometric dating of two layers of volcanic ash that tightly sandwiched the fossil deposits revealed that Ardi lived 4.4 million years ago.
Bare feet in 'fresh' lava, was the lava hot? so no one would walk on it, or was it cold? so its too hard for an imprint?
And I'm still trying to find the thesis of a female archeologist who found remains in America dating almost 7 million years and now she can get footing now that they have acknowledged that Lucy has a great great great grandma.
