Wow.
The headline is misleading.
It covers world wide population spread.

This is far more believable than the Pre-Clovis Big Hunter crap I was constantly fed as a young and not-so impressionable child. :evil:

Maybe someday people will begin taking a serious look at the South Pacific crossing, 20th latitude. With a 400 foot drop in sea level, the currents are modified (i.e. marine migration) and far more islands present themselves on the way to a Peru landfall. 8)

Advances such as these give me much hope that we will eventually be able to target when and how HN arrived in Europe as well as validating the "boat" theories of arrival of HS to areas where others insist it must be by land migration alone. Keep an eye out for more of these viral mutation studies. It is strong evidence.

Thanks for sharing this!

Overspecialization within a scientific discipline may be a handicap when it comes to the big questions of humanity.

Wow. Is that statement ever true!!!!
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

It's so nice to be out front once in a while, eh?

It's not difficult sometimes though is it Min?
Did you notice the comment about 'entrenched views'?
That about sums it up I'm afraid.

All -

In the end, we may be truly known

By the genetics of the parasites we keep.

I am sure without a doubt that the Paisley Cave people

Are doing parasitic analysis on them thar turds

Which should be awfully interesting when published.

Fortunately, the mental parasites of Das Klub

Are an extremely recent mutation, and

That spp. - Homo ignoramous quasiscientificii -

Should soon be extinct.

Poetry and truth in one reply.

Excellent observation.

I agree, Patti. Brilliant post, John.

But Patti, I'm intrigued about your job? You mentioned something about what you do in another thread ... something to do with urine and turds on beaches, I think? .... and it left me wondering!

Patti must be a lifeguard.

I've seen a few drunken turds visit the beach who could not hold their urine.
Maybe they were that threatened species Homo ignoramous quasiscientificii? :D

I'm still waiting for an interactive, zoomable global map showing coastlines and islands when sea level was 100, 200, 300, 400 feet lower than today. How hard can that be in this IT age? It would sooo much change people's views on what was and was not possible in those phases. Smart scientists could probably also infer major ocean currents from those maps!
