The history of human evolution has been rewritten after scientists discovered that Europe was the birthplace of mankind, not Africa. Currently, most experts believe that our human lineage split from apes around seven million years ago in central Africa, where hominids remained for the next five million years before venturing further afield. But two fossils of an ape-like creature which had human-like teeth have been found in Bulgaria and Greece, dating to 7.2 million years ago.

Really interesting, but will it go in our science textbooks?

Hahaha, the one thing Africa had going for them and it's gone.

If anything, Africans are behind in terms of evolution.

Yeah, I don't know what to think. I like the idea of evolving out of Greece  - That's where they found the modern homosapean fossils, which existed before the modern ones in Africa by 100,000 years I think. Maybe you can say that we were evolving into modern humans in Europe and Africa simultaneously? And after we came out of Africa (and Europe) we interbred and become the humans that we are today?

I can sit with both. Seems like a good compromise. Lol.
