Is the human story of 'Out of Africa' theory finally completely dead? And other theories based on that including human evolution?
Another research article or find showing that Neanderthals and modern humans were interbreeding way before ever anticipated by theories. And this latest report is an absolute monster with its implications.
And this means that they had left Africa before the larger dispersal that took place at least 40,000 years later.
This adds to the idea that early forays out of the continent took place. Other recent evidence includes early human fossils found in Skhul and Qafzeh in Israel, and recent research that suggests people were living in China at least 80,000 years ago.

Should all scientific theories about ancient man be started with a fresh slate? Look at the actual evidence and not be influenced by previous fellow peers theories and careers.
It began not in Africa
It has been estimated that from a population of 2,000 to 5,000 individuals in Africa, only a small group, possibly as few as 150 to 1,000 people, crossed the Red Sea. Of all the lineages present in Africa only the female descendants of one lineage, mtDNA haplogroup L3, are found outside Africa. If there had been several migrations, one would expect descendants of more than one lineage to be found outside Africa.
A possible explanation is that these mutations occurred in East Africa shortly before the exodus and became the dominant haplogroups after the exodus from Africa through the founder effect. Alternatively, the mutations may have arisen shortly after the exodus from Africa.

If it did begin in Africa is this evidence of catastrophe evolution?
