70,000 years ago, two new haplogroups appeared in East Africa, the L3 mtDNA lineage and the CT Y-chromosomal lineage. Almost all non-Africans can trace their maternal and paternal ancestry from these two lines. This understanding establishes the earliest possible dating for an African migration event populating Eurasia and America.
Archaeological evidence places modern humans in Australasia earlier than 70,000 years ago. Genetic research confirms that Australasian Aboriginal populations are descended from the HgL3 and HgCT lineages and stem from the same founding population as do modern Asians and Europeans. One theory that attempted to explain this all away by involving multiple waves of migrants has recently collapsed under the weight of the contrary evidence.
Archaeological sites in the Levant, Middle East, China and India all offer evidence of a previous colonisation of the Eurasian continent by modern humans long before the children of HgL3 and HgCT took possession of the world. What happened to these first people? Why don’t we carry their genes today?
Modern humans as we know them today bear traces of extinct relatives in their genome. We are left to wonder what brought about the end of the world for Neanderthals, Denisovans, Floresiensis and other yet to be named hominins. Why did our ancestors encounter an almost empty continent as they moved through Eurasia?
During the last few years, a series of incredible discoveries have finally provided the evidence required to answer these and other profoundly important questions of our mysterious human origins.
It is now possible to pinpoint the precise moment that doom fell upon the first modern humans of Eurasia in the form of a natural cataclysm that equally devastating for the Neanderthals and Denisovans. The myth of the aggressive conquering migrants from Africa killing their cousins is at last exposed for what it is, a sham, a wild guess with no scientific basis.
Perhaps the first wave of modern humans entering Europe and Asia began their journey in Africa 200,000 – 150,000 years ago, but the recolonisation of Eurasia 70,000 – 60,000 years ago started from Australasia.
This book calls for a paradigm displacement, but such a bold request requires detailed evidence. The only question remaining now is, whether you are ready to explore the evidence for yourself and follow the Forgotten Exodus?
