Thanos5150: Was Darwin wrong when he traced our origins to Africa? The Real Planet of the Apes makes the explosive claim that it was in Europe, not Africa, where apes evolved the most important hallmarks of our human lineage ….
The problem with these linear evolutionary theories (Darwinism - Into Africa – Out of Africa – etc.) is that they take for granted the progression towards greater complexity. The best adapted life forms – and the best able to survive in any environmental niche – are the simple single cell organisms (i.e. the first life). So if survival of the fittest was to drive anything it would be devolution – not evolution. The claims that the first life got started by accident or that our species resulted from adaption or survival of the fittest are absurdities.
We cannot hope to answer the ‘what happened' question unless we understand the ‘why’.
