Default Prehistoric Humans Left Africa 60,000 Years Earlier

Now Science is saying early h[Umansd[/U] were leaving Africa much earlier than we thought.

Out of Africa: Prehistoric Humans Left Africa 60,000 Years Earlier Than We Thought

By Katherine Hignett On 12/7/17 at 2:00 PM

New archaeological evidence has undermined elements of the so-called "Out of Africa" theory, the widely supported model that maps the migration of the earliest humans from Africa. Scientists now believe humans departed Africa as early as 120,000 years ago—60,000 years earlier than previously thought.

Researchers from the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History, in Jena, Germany, and the University of Hawaii at Manoa, used cutting-edge DNA analysis to date ancient human bones found in Asia.

interesting how what scientist say they "KNOW" keeps changing.
I really wish they'd just say something like.
"Well at this point many scientist THINK/BELIEVE... based on ABC... that the human family did XYZ in the past. But new information may change our views tomorrow. And of course we are completely open to other interpretations of the current data."
science right?

Archaeologists continue to re-write history as they learn more.

Archaeology as blood sport: How an ancient mastodon ignited debate over humans? arrival in North America - LA Times

Pre-Clovis humans in the modern day US are not widely accepted by the scientific community.

Odd but true, my father was a cabinet maker by trade that worked with paleoanthropologist and archaeologist Dr Louis Leakey as a "hired hand" on some of his archaeological digs.

...and alternatives considered that draw whole new maps?
or old text books proclaimed flat wrong and current pronouncements presented as tentative info, not so much.
