The Oldest Ancient Human Fossils Discovered Outside Africa Push Back Our Timeline… Again!

It’s no surprise that time is pulling us further back as we speak. No, that is not a metaphor for how mankind is losing its hold on the passage of time; rather, it is a directly pointed arrow highlighting the fact that humanity is much older than we previously assumed.

A series of human fossils discovered outside of Africa appear to indicate that our species originated there over 200,000 years ago.

However, it was soon determined that this was erroneous, when yet another series of fossils were discovered, only for them to be deemed indecisive and a new series of fossils to be discovered in Jebel Irhoud, Morocco, which were at least 300,000 years old by now.

As time passes, it looks that our timeline is being pushed further back since we speak, as the following artifacts and remains all point to our origins being much further back than historians would have us believe.

The Misliya-1, for example, is a partial maxilla that appears to be 177,000 – 194,000 years old.

If that isn’t enough, consider the stone tools, which appear to be based on Levallois technology, which should not have existed at the time.

These are at least 190-260,000 years old as of now. Then there are the Levallois tools from Jebel Irhoud, Morocco, which date back roughly 315,000 years.
