    The Origin of Homo Sapiens?

    In early anthropological documents it's often said that each race of man evolved locally into Homo Sapiens from the Homo Erectus, simply because the H. Erectus where the first hominids to reach Asia and Europe.

    But now it's more accepted that the first H. Sapiens evolved in Africa some 200.000 - 150.000 years ago, and then migrated into other parts of the earth.

    So what is correct?

    And if the second one is true, than whatever happened to the descendants of the Homo Erectus hominids that left Africa?

    Re: The right origin?

    I personally think that modern humans evolved somewhere in East Africa or Asia, migrated around to different parts of the world and were altered by selection and interbreeding with archaic Hominids like Erectus.

    Re: The right origin?

    Well, I think that second theory is the most likely.

    Homo Erectus in Europe evolved into Neanderthals, they disappeared just after (in Prehistoric terms, perhaps 2,000-5,000 years) the arrival of the Homo Sapiens to Europe, probably because of their lack to to adapt to the new changes plus some genocide IMO.

    I don't know what happened to the Asian Homo Erectus, perhaps they still live hidden in the Himalaya mountains, and are known as the Yeti . Don't forget reduced Homo Erectus survived in Indonesia until 18,000 years ago.

    Re: The right origin?

    The Homo Erectus species died mostly due to conflicts and possibly interbreeding with Homo Sapiens, but some of their genes might still be left in some modern human groups like the Western Indonesians and the Papuans.

    The Single-origin/East-African theory makes more sense in modern times, it has enough evidence of migrations and genetics.
