Where did human life begin?

Post by TheVirus » Thu Nov 19, 2009 11:57 pm

Hey, is it true that the first human beings were from africa, and then spread to the other continents, or from siberia, or that they appeared individually in each continent? Do u know how the first human beings were like (appearance, intelligence, etc)?

from Siberia? What would they do in there? Don't you think native Americans?

The very first people are from apes in Afrika, so they seemed pretty much similar ;) I'm sure, Wiki will be much helpfull ;)
BTW this is much about Evolution for the next time ;)

Oh, and you've got any idea how they might have got from Africa to the other continents?

Air Afrique has a very complete coverage of the African continent... But my guess would however be: walking. It is slow, but it is not as if there was much choice. Exploration in comfortable RangeRover will not happen before 10 000 years.

Not really canoe, but on some little bigger ships yes.

evolution started in some pre-ocean. The humans arised in Africa and first civilisations appeared by big rivers like Nill, Euphrat and Tigris, in India and China...

it began in eritrea/djibouti in east africa. the channel across the red sea to asia is narrow here and this is how we spread. from there most parts of the globe are accessible.
