    In the Spirit of Sankofa,


    This was the 'missing link' that convinced scientists human life began in Africa


    In August 1936, Robert Broom, a Scottish doctor with a keen interest in paleontology, visited a lime quarry in South Africa called Sterkfontein. In a guidebook at the time, the owner of the site, wrote, “Come to Sterkfontein and find the ‘missing link.’” It would not be long before Broom did just that ...

    Very interesting!

    This skull though is what scientist say about the common features of Neanderthals. They say that the Neanderthal skulls show large eye sockets, sloping and low forehead, and receding chin, and that is this very skull. so, in regards to human origins, maybe this skull represents an even more earlier 'being' or pre-modern hominid that is much earlier than Neanderthals. Scientist say that Neanderthals are much more recent than earlier huminids.

    Indigenous Australians the oldest living civilisation on Earth, study affirms


    An extensive DNA study confirms what Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have always believed: they're the oldest living civilisation on the planet.

    "We know that we were here forever, but Western science is slowly catching up," says a Facebook post from Indigenous Australian rights organisation Sovereign Union, led by activist and Euahlayi leader Ghillar Michael Anderson ...

    Thank you!

    You know, it is so interesting to me that even though this skull matches that of Neanderthals, scientist today don't highlight this in regards to Africa. What they say is that Neanderthals were in Europe and eventually 'may have' intermixed with modern humans when they migrated to Europe. But this skull in Africa shows that they are skipping over some other issues.

    Without a doubt, they are skipping over issues. The neanderthal argument has been debunked so many times its unreal:
