A WRITER from Chalford has made a direct challenge to the scientific case for human evolution in Africa in his new controversial new book.

Bruce Fenton has delved into what has been dubbed the ‘out of Africa’ theory, which is used to explain the geographic origin of humans.

It posits that the very first homo sapiens emerged in Africa, around 200,000 years ago.

Bruce has been an investigative researcher of 25 years and his new book, The Forgotten Exodus: The Into Africa Theory of Human Evolution, looks over the theory in critical detail.

He suggests that it is invalid, based on recent research, which leaves open the question: if we didn’t originate from Africa, then where did we come from?

“In 1982, Alan Wilson and Rebecca Cann, two of the most renowned evolutionary scientists of the modern age, discovered compelling evidence for an Australasian genesis of modern humans,” said Bruce.

“They failed to publish these conclusions, but the facts remained.

“My research colleagues and I have uncovered overwhelming evidence that puts the first homo sapiens in Australasia, and not only them but several other advanced hominin forms.”

The Forgotten Exodus: The Into Africa Theory of Human Evolution can be bought digitally on Amazon.
