Africa, the continent where mankind began. Before, I wrote asking where people think the Garden of Eden was. Another argument from Africa might be, Be Fruitful and Multiply. Then again, these were our most ancient ancestors, hunter gatherers.
Hunter gatherers need a lot of land. Eventually, the ancestors of everyone outside Africa had to move on and populate the rest of our planet.
I’ve been to South Africa and read Michael Palin’s Pole to Pole and saw the series. I’ve become more interested, as genetics have shown the African birthplace of mankind.
I’m not an expert in genetics, but learned Africa has the most genetic variation, because it’s the origin point. (I’m already hearing that old silly comment in my head, they all look alike. OK, maybe the skin deep differences, but unravel the genetic chain and that’s another matter. Two African neighbors will probably have more radically different genetic codes than people elsewhere.
What more will science discover? Every day becomes a new adventure.
