you mean 200/250 thousand years? anyway devil give a link on that publication..
really? so man is older than woman?? and there was no woman to start with?
perhaps the man should have been Man or should I have written personkind.
Yeah yeah yeah zee vee in da house. It is good you pulled me up on it because I was referring to the 338 000 yr old estimate but before it was 75,000 years (this figure was accepted for a long time), now its older, if it is older than 200,000 years it makes a difference.
What difference? Well at 75,000 if we looked at daddy he would probably look human, even at 200,000 years possibly he would look more like us, at 338,000 years daddy would be a hairy ape with a very primitive mind.
The fact that Mitro Eve and Y Adam lived in similar times is fucking exciting. the story of Adam and Eve based on scientific scripture with a little suspension of belief it would be the movie and then some. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Y-chromosomal_Adam
The age for the Y-MRCA has been variously estimated as 188,000, 270,000, 306,000, and 142,000 A paper published in March 2013 reported an older estimate of 338,000 years. Then two simultaneous reports in August 2013 provide younger estimates, one suggested 180,000 to 200,000 years, and another, based on the genome sequence of nine different populations, indicated the age between 120,000 and 156,000 years.
Analogous to Y-chromosomal Adam, Mitochondrial Eve is the woman from whom all living humans are descended matrilineally, who lived about 140,000 to 200,000 years ago in Africa. The estimate is based on inherited mtDNA though mothers. Theoretically, it is not necessary to believe that Y-chromosomal Adam and Mitochondrial Eve should have lived at the same time. However, latest findings in 2013 give the possibility that the two individuals could be contemporaneous.
