Recent articles have been published from a scientific study from a joint effort from the Universty of Basel and Rockefeller University. They claim that all of humanity originated from one couple about 100,000 to 200,000 years ago after a catastrophic event. I don’t think that there is a clear answer about whether or not this is true, and there are conflicting opinions from different scientists.

There are good articles from both sides that either support or are against this theory:

The New Zealand Herald argues for this theory.

Forbes argues against this theory.

Personally, I don’t this theory has enough scientific support to be valid, as the story has only been supported by a select few websites, and sites such as Fox News, The New Zealand Herald, and Daily Mail have proven in the past to have a bias. But, nowadays, everyone has a bias.

To me, the most interesting quote came from one of the scientists within the project, scientists David Thaler said:

“This conclusion is very surprising and I fought against it as hard as I could.”

Shocking isn’t it? But there is a strong anti-God bias in scientists today. A significant majority of scientists don’t even consider the supernatural.

At the end of the day, science doesn’t speak, scientists do.
