Mali Empire is about as good as it gets. Sitting on an insane amount of gold probably helped.

In the 1200s-1400s an unknown entity conquered part of sub Saharan Africa and erected the only known stone ruins in the entire region. It may have been an early colony or trading post but it was destroyed within 100 years of being erected. We know they weren't local because there is no other evidence of them or similar structures in the area, they may have come from India or Arabia.

Africans sometimes claim there was a time that they were innocent, what they call 'The Garden of Eden".

They built a network of villages, with harvestable native permaculture in-between. The idea of cities was anathema to their culture.

The claim that these people make about "the fall of Eden" is that it was the Egyptian phaorohs who enslaved them and destroyed their way of life.

In that context, I regard Africans similar to Native Americans. The 'mystery' to me is why they have not adapted to modern life.

That might explain why virtually every Western culture has some variant of the Noah's Ark story.

By definition it's impossible for Africans to be a different species, as they can produce viable offspring when mating with homo sapiens.

Except this does exactly nothing to disprove the currently accept place of origin for the genus homo. This finding is way too far back to matter in that equation.

not really bragging rights. even if people came from there it's not like we wish to go back or be black or whatever else one might think about it. I surely don't feel closer to blacks even if that's the case.

Europe was the birthplace of mankind, not Africa, scientists find

'"I would be hesitant about using a single character from an isolated fossil to set against the evidence from Africa."'

'Our data support the view that this split was happening in the eastern Mediterranean - not in Africa. ', "I personally don't think that the descendants of Graecopithecus die out, they may have spread to Africa later.", "The discovery of the creature, named Graecopithecus freybergi, and nicknameded â\x80\x98El Graeco' by scientists, proves our ancestors were already starting to evolve in Europe 200,000 years before the earliest African hominid."

'During the period the Mediterranean Sea went through frequent periods of drying up completely, forming a land bridge between Europe and Africa and allowing apes and early hominids to pass between the continents. '

This has been an automated message.

Oh boy is this going to be fought tooth and nail by the university "ethics committees" and other academic (((apparati))) born to stifle research which diverges from the ideals of the cultural corruptors.

I am still firmly in the Asian origins camp. I need to find that article again to compare dates, but before this announcement the oldest humanoid skeletons were found in China, not Africa.

Me too. I believe the cradle of human civilization probably is either modern day Huang He valley, modern day West India or modern day Sichuan Province

This is actually big news. According to the fossiles, it looks like pre-human apes where able to cross a dried up mediterranean and settled in the Greek-Balcanic region, and from there they evolved into proto-humans.

Of course, the full "missing link" mistery will never be solved but for now...

It looks like African Apes had to go to Europe in order to evolve.

And then they either backcrossed with African hominids or Africans are a genetically distinct population that can be classified as a different species... I always found it fishy that full blooded people from Africa look so different from other 'races'. Makes me think we are not and that it's like the grey wolf and coyote, or the wildcat and leopard cat or some other nor-so-closely-related species that still produces viable offspring.
