If Homo Erectus got as far as Dmanisi by 1.8 million ybp why is north africa such a surprise?
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.
