>Debunking the Out-of-Africa Theory
Erectus Walks Amongst Us, by Richard Fuerle, challenges the political correctness and mainstream assumptions about race, genetics, and the origin of modern Man. I found the book absolutely amazing in terms of information. Much of the stuff I never heard before. I had briefly written a review of this book earlier this year. This article explains more in depth about my findings. BTW, a hard copy of Fuerle’s book is over $150 from Amazon the last time I checked. Fortunately you can read it here for free: http://erectuswalksamongst.us.

The out-of-Africa theory goes something like this: all humans on earth evolved from Africa (By “Africa”, I’m referring to sub-Sahara Africa). Africans migrated out of their continent around 65k years ago. They first replaced the Asians and then the Europeans. Because of their superiority and strength, the Africans were able to replace the more primitive populations of homo erectus and neanderthals in those continents. Thus everyone’s roots can be traced back to Africa. According to Wikipedia, the OOA theory is the most widely accepted model of the geographic origin and early migration of anatomically modern humans among paleo-anthropologists. I will show you, based on the book, that this theory is flawed.
“Throughout history, most of the instances of people from one region attacking and conquering substantial portions of another region have involved ‘northerners’ invading more southerly lands.” (Hart, 2007).
Large Genetic Differences
Until the 1960s, Neanderthals were classified as Homo neanderthalensis, a different species from us, Homo sapiens. But the genetic distance between Homo sapiens and Homo neanderthalensis (<0.08%) is less than the genetic distance between the two chimpanzee species (0.103). Today, Neanderthals are classified as Homo sapiens neanderthalensis, a sub-species of our species, while we are another sub-species, Homo sapiens sapiens. The genetic distance between (sub-Saharan) Africans and Eurasians (0.2%) is more than twice the genetic distance between living humans and Neanderthals (0.08%) so, at the very least, Africans should be classified as a sub-species, Homo sapiens africanus and Eurasians as another sub-species, Homo sapiens eurasianensis.
Finally, the genetic distance between Homo sapiens and Homo erectus is estimated as 0.170 (mean given as 0.19), about the same as the genetic distance between the Bantu Africans and the Eskimos, but the genetic distance between living Africans and Eurasians is 0.23 (Table 7-1, p. 45). Thus, Homo sapiens is more closely related to Homo erectus than Eurasians are to sub-Saharan Africans. Either erectus should be reclassified as Homo sapiens erectus or sub-Saharan Africans should be reclassified as Homo africanus. (Fuerle, Chapter 28)
