OOA Revised?

OOA evolves into two waves.... and probably many more to come.


The scientists tested different hypothetical dispersal scenarios, taking into account the geography of potential migration routes, genetic data and cranial comparisons. They found that the first wave of migration out of Africa started earlier than previously thought, taking place as early as the late Middle Pleistocene -- with a second dispersal to northern Eurasia following about 50,000 years ago.



I still don't like the word "migration" in this sense. It implies an intent.
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.

But, based on the single generation cranial changes during and after the Trail of Tears how much weight can we give that evidence?
