    There had to be a place before Africa . . . . right; just like there was a place before America. . . .

      This looks like a great place to ask who did Adam and Eve's kids marry? Been wondering since I was an 8-year-old in Sunday school. Been wondering a LONG time now.

      David, the answer is that no one knows who A&Es kids married! They just appeared out of nowhere, pretty much like the gods themselves.

    Where did you get the information that caused you to believe that black people were "chased into Africa"?
    According to most paleontologists and anthropologists, human life originated IN Africa and spread out from there.
    Evolution dictated through thousands and thousands of years the adaptation of less melanin (lighter colored skin) for colder climates.
    On the DNA level, all humans are related, no matter what they look like on the outside. The genetic code for the "human" species is the same for all races.
    Research evolution on YouTube and use scientific sites, not "origin myth" sites.
    DNA can be seen by microscopes. The human genome has been sequenced and studied and is living proof of the origin of the species.

      THANK YOU!  I am so glad that you responded to the question.  Doesn't everyone knows that humans originated in Africa!   Where were they in history class?  Do they read books describing evolution and human origins?  The answer is quite obvious!

      As for those who believe in evolution you've been lied to. Lies do have a way of sounding almost true especially when they are repeated so many times.

      We don't "believe" in evolution, it is a true science. We prove evolution every day. If you were a scientist, you would know this. But by calling evolution a lie, you show your lack of education on the subject.

      Austin, I am truly stumped by the mental challenges of some people.  Are there some people completely amiss?  First, this question then the 2nd comment.  Now, I have SEE IT ALL, it really can't get any worse......please TELL ME THIS.....

      Grace, I am just at a loss for words regarding those that are willfully ignorant of evolution and all of the other sciences. They can't accept progress of any kind. Nor can they recognize basic facts. They live in some backwards fantasyland.

      Well Austinstar, I may have to agree. Thank you for your knowledge and insight.

    The Human genome project has revealed a startling fact: that the human population was once a number of scattered tribes on the verge of extinction. What has been confirmed is that possibly as recently as 50,000 years ago - one small wavelet from Africa lapped onto the shores of western Asia. All non-Africans share markers carried by those first emigrants, who may have numbered no more than a thousand people.

      Wow,all I can say is wow.It is knowledge that humankind originated in Africa.Africa was the 1st home of humankind,then there were migrations.  All of humankind has African origins.I think I will take a stiff drink now- UNBELIEVABLE to say the least!!
