An interesting theory, Shadow. But one I must, respectfully, disagree with.

Have you ever heard of Pangaea, or any other Super-continent theory? The basic premise is that all seven modern continents were once a single, undivided landmass, most commonly known as Pangaea. Over time, this super-continent divided (due to plate tectonics) into what we now know as the 7 major continents of the world: Asia, Africa, North American, South America, Antarctica, Europe, and Australia. For your convenience, in the event you're not familiar with it, here is a visual representation of the theory, as it is currently understood.

According to the super-continent theory, our ancestors—which you incorrectly called Apes, we only share an ancestor with them, they're not our ancestor themselves—could have migrated across the entire super-continent before the tectonics divided it. This would account for why our ancestors (H. Habilis, H. Erectus, etc) from hundreds of thousands of years ago, have been found on just about every modern continent.

 


Modern human life though, did begin in Africa. The earliest Homo genus ancestors of modern humans (H. Habilis and H. Erectus) are both from fertile locations in Africa. Neolithic groups of nomadic hunter-gatherers, and tribal bands then migrated North, toward modern-day Egypt. Once there, the Neolithic Egyptian groups settled, while others migrated East into Asia, and the Near-and-Middle East (Iran, Iraq, etc. by today's maps).

The Ubaids and Natufian (two Neolithic groups of Mesopotamia) then settled in Sumer, between the Tigris and Euphrates. Mesopotamian culture began to develop because of this settlement. Groups including the Akkadians, Amorites, Babylonians, Cassites, Elamites, etc. began to develop. From there, cultures migrated both North, and East.

So, we now have primitive African tribes, permanent Egyptian cities, Mesopotamia and her city-states, the beginnings of what would become the Persian empire, and northern groups in the land of Hati (the Hittite and Hurrian civilizations) developing.

All of these groups continued to expand both North and East, entering China and Europe, giving rise to those groups (Greece, China, Indo-European groups, etc.) Once in Europe, through the use of boats and ships, every other continent slowly became accessible once again, just as they were in prehistory, with Pangaea.

 


As for the sun, you're a bit off. Groups closer to the equator have darker skin tones (pigmentations) because the dark skin helps them live in the intense heat with less dehydration (a product of evolution), which is why Africa, Egypt, and Mesopotamia are all dark skinned, like South Americans and Mesoamericans.

The further North or South from the equator, the more fair skinned individual became (again due to evolution), because fairer skin absorbs more sunlight, which helps keep us alive, when used in moderation of course. That is why China, Europe, North America, the Eskimo, and other groups have lighter, fairer skin.

Obviously, due to world travel, we can now all exist anywhere.

So, if I'm in Europe and the sun sets in the west...that makes the Native Americans....the yellow skinned people? Thus everyone is constantly changing skin tones?

This theory makes absolutely no sense. I guess it does if you're an American living in America...but not for anyone else.

Well, it all depends where you place yourself. Now, this being said, in a certain way, everything is to the east. And actually everything is also to the west. That's because the earth is a sphere!

It's just that, when we look at the map of the world, traditionnally, Europe and Africa are more or less in the center, Asia (and Oceania) is to the east, while the Americas are to the west. That's really only a convention of uses...

Makes sense, keep walking south and eventually you will end up in the northern hemisphere,

Male/Female and Positive/Negative inside the individual which is a reflection of the whole. Does this mean that earth is a reflection of the galaxy, and if so is there four humanoid-like species in our galaxy?
