    This is fascinating. DNA reveals so much.

    Turns out scientists weren't quite right about early human migration

    New archaeological evidence has undermined elements of the so-called "Out of Africa" theory, the widely supported model that maps the migration of the earliest humans from Africa. Scientists now believe humans departed Africa as early as 120,000 years ago—60,000 years earlier than previously thought.

    Additionally there is some question as to whether a second batch evolved somewhere other that Africa.

    Science is based on theory, hypothesis. It is ever changing.

    How often do you see the phrase "history rewritten"? Maybe the pompous "scientists" create fiction to go along with pet theories. It's possible the creatures that "migrated out of Africa" weren't quite human. Neanderthals were still wandering around Europe 60,000 years ago and apparently there were other sub human or pre human species all over the world.

    Amazing. I’m watching 10,000 BC. I was thinking how long ago that was but now your story makes 10,000 years ago seem like nothing.

    What amazes me is people were probably people much like they are now. Gossip, laugh, worry, each person trying to find their place in society.

    But I’m sure glad I live here and now. In the movie another tribe just came in and enslaved the main characters tribe. The ones they didn’t kill

    How else did the Chinese come up with such a different language than the Native American Indians?

    It would be one thing if every language was a spin-off of one original language but that’s not the case. The Chinese went from no language to Chinese. In England those humanoids evolved from apes to humans and developed a completely different language. Or Latin. You get the point. Fascinating that two differ humans invented two completely different languages. Who were they? You think they would be famous to this day.

    I really can't tell if you are trolling or really this ignorant?

    If you really think that the "Chinese went from no language to Chinese"- you are indeed ignorant.
    If you really believe that apes in England evolved to humans- you are ignorant of current science.
    If you really believe that humans in England developed Latin.....well you are really ignorant of history.

    That movie is a lark. Don't take any of it seriously.
