Was Africa the cradle of humanity?

Mar 9, 2021 | Science

The idea that Africa was where humans originated has been drilled into our heads for decades, but cracks are beginning to appear, and they are being published by well-known scientists in top-level journals. If it is not true, how can we explain the data from a biblical perspective? To do that, we can turn to any number of ideas, including patriarchal drive, inbreeding, differential mutation rates, selective sweeps, differences in starting population sizes among the modern world populations, higher rates of recombination in the sub-Saharan population, and massive waves of migration into Africa (several of which can be documented) later in history. The biblical account fits the data beautifully.
