The Left has maintained a death-grip on academia and the sciences for some time now, but the mantle of ideological conformity is beginning to slip. It seems that the “Out of Africa” theory of human origins may not be as absolute as once thought:
Currently, most experts believe that our human lineage split from apes around seven million years ago in central Africa, where hominids remained for the next five million years before venturing further afield.
But two fossils of an ape-like creature which had human-like teeth have been found in Bulgaria and Greece, dating to 7.2 million years ago.
…The discovery of the creature, named Graecopithecus freybergi, and nicknameded â€˜El Graeco’ by scientists, proves our ancestors were already starting to evolve in Europe 200,000 years before the earliest African hominid.
If the Leftists follow their usual game plan, there will be much fear/uncertainty/doubt spread about this idea in the coming weeks, followed by “alternate theories” based on the idea that these fossils were either wrongly dated, or consisted of animals which briefly ventured out of Africa during a warming spell and then went back to evolve into modern humanity.
