In recent years, the ‘Out Of Africa’ (OOA) theory of human evolution has been accepted as fact, thanks to its vigorous advancement by the post-war political and media classes. The theory is part of a “single origin hypothesis”, that suggests all humans are descended from early Homo sapiens who first evolved from Homo erectus (part of the wider hominid group) about 200,000 years ago in sub-Saharan Africa, who then migrated out of the African continent around 130,000 years ago in the first instance, followed by a later migration between 69,000 and 77,000 years ago.
However, scientists now believe they have found evidence to suggest that our ancestors were already beginning to evolve in Europe 200,000 years before the earliest African hominid. Fossils of a creature named Graecopithecus freybergi, an ape-like creature with human teeth, have been found in Northern Greece and Southern Bulgaria which have been dated at around 7.2 million years old.
Researchers believe that this creature is the missing link between chimpanzees and hominids, as this creature, nicknamed “El Graeco”, is the species with whom both humans and chimpanzees share a common ancestor.
This new finding opens up a whole host of new possibilities and totally dismantles the Out Of Africa theory, exposing it for the nonsensical pseudo-science that it is. One of the possibilities that is also plausible thanks to this research is that the “single origin hypothesis” is wrong altogether, and that hominids could have developed at different rates in different parts of the world without ever coming into contact with one another.
“This study changes the ideas related to the knowledge about the time and the place of the first steps of the humankind,” – Professor Nikolai Spassov from the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences.
The research was conducted by a group of internationally renowned scientists, after Nikolai Spassov from the National Museum of Natural History (Sofia, Bulgaria), and his colleagues discovered the tooth of an ape that was 7 million years old. After 5 years of investigation, Spassov, along with esteemed colleagues – including Madelaine Böhme at the University of Tübingen in Germany and David Begun at the University of Toronto, Canada – have determined that ‘El Graeco’ does in fact bear resemblance to pre-human hominids.
Using a micro-CT scanner, a fossilised jaw was examined and it was found to have a similar structure, in terms of teeth and roots, to humans. It is hypothesised that this was the beginning of the evolutionary process which saw early humans’ mouths develop and adapt to the climate change taking place in Europe at that time. The climate was becoming warmer, therefore food sources often contained less moisture than they previously had, leading to hominids developing wider molars and thicker enamel.
“We were surprised by our results, as pre-humans were previously known only from sub-Saharan Africa,” said doctoral student Jochen Fuss, a Tübingen PhD student who conducted this part of the study.
Aside from being generally fascinating, these new discoveries may help us to understand the differences between the races or, sub-species, of homo sapiens, that are grossly overlooked if one believes solely in the Out Of Africa theory. The OOA theory fails to account for the massive differential potentials in early hominids evolving a separate paces in vastly different climates and natural environments, but now it is possible for this to be explored in more detail as more research is done into the history of hominids on the European continent.
Of course, the post-fact, anti-science establishment political classes will be commissioning their willing academic accomplices to denigrate this groundbreaking new find, as it goes against the OOA myth that they have been forcing upon us for the last 70 years. To that end, expect to see these brave scientists have their names dragged through the gutter before long. Make no mistake however, for scientific fact will always prevail provided there are sound minds left to hear and advance it.
