When a Genetic Specialist and a Team of DNA experts and scientist conducted a thorough & extensive research project to get to the bottom of Asian roots and ancestry, they came out with something they weren’t expecting.
They went in to prove that Chinese people originated from Peking Man in northern China, but came to the realization that they actually came from early humans in East Africa who moved through South Asia to China some 100,000 years ago, Hong Kong Ming Pao daily reported in a finding that confirms the single origin theory in anthropology.
According to the newspaper, a research team led by Jin Li (of Fudan University in Shanghai found that not only the Chinese but ALL modern humans evolved from a single origin, not multiple origins as some experts believe.
In China, school textbooks teach that the Chinese race evolved from Peking Man, based on a theory that humans in Europe and Asia evolved from local species.
But Jin and his fellow researchers found that early humans belonged to different species, of which only the East African species developed into modern humans.
This new finding nullifies the theory that the ancestors of the Chinese people were Peking Man who lived in northern China 400,000 years ago.
Based on DNA analyses of 100,000 samples gathered from around the world, a number of human families evolved in East Africa over 150,000 years ago, said Li Hui, a member of Jins team.
About 100,000 years ago, some of those humans began to leave Africa, with some people moving to China via South and Southeast Asia, Li said.
According to the newspaper article, it has been proven that the 65 branches of the Chinese race share similar DNA mutations with the peoples of East and Southeast Asia.
The Shanghai scientists were part of an international team comprised of researchers from Russia, India, Brazil and other nations in a five-year project studying the geographic and genealogical routes related to the spread and settlement of modern humans. They went in thinking that they were going to come up with “Asian” ancestry…. but what hit them was the Truth. Asian ancestry originates in Africa. As do ALL other people that walk on planet earth. Watch the clip and see his discovery, plus even MORE proof.
