"Why on any level would they [ancient peoples from outside of Africa, say for example from the Levant or Mesopotamia] think such a thing [that they came from Africa] if only the opposite, Eddie?””
This is one of the great questions of history Lee. It is pretty well accepted nowadays that Homo Sapiens developed in Africa and spread throughout the world. But when did they know this, and how? That is the question.
And I don’t know the answer. Your posts revive this question for me.
