(True/False) The ethnic groups in the world most genetically distant from Africans (from which we all came from) look nearly identical to Africans.
I'm tired of debating myth. If it makes you happy, dive in head-first to the story you need for comfort.
Genetics. The cradle of homo erectus was in Ethiopia. We all looked the same then, now we're all kinds of different colors and have so many different traits.
It's mother earths way of diversity.
I mean that's not really up to debate with honestly. There's not a genetic ancestry academic source who says differently.
That's the map.
You've been posting a lot of really great polls with fabulous supporting information lately, and I just wanted to say thanks. I've learned a lot! :)
"Who said we all came from Africa?"
Anthropology, for starters
True - A group of Australoid ethnic groups named "Negritos" are the most genetically distinct people's in the world. They are linked to early settlers leaving Africa thousands of years ago.
For a compilation of many checked sources use: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Negrito
I'll post some more sources for wiki skeptics.
So the garden in Eden was in Africa? I honestly have never heard that. Thought it was in the Middle East somewhere
Thank you! :)
God made the first people and put them in the garden of Eden. So wherever that was, is where humans started.
I second that. I enjoy your poles.
Thank you I appreciate it :)
Where does the Garden of Eden come into our evolutionary history? Maybe God intervened between archaic H. sapiens and our modern subspecies. In which case, the oldest evidence of modern humanity comes from a river in Ethiopia.
Also want to thank a racist guy on a forum, who will not be named. He inspired me looking into the genetics of different ethnic groups due to him using it to justify racism and was pissed when I used this as a come back.
I don't buy the homo erctus aspect of starting humans. I don't care where you say homo is traced to. That was not the start of the human race
I see no debate to be had. As for believing something that makes you feel good, that is not why I believe but for those who don't I think it is a good reason to.
Who said we all came from Africans?
Yah, not buying that.
