Of course it does. In Germany, remains of a creature have been found that went on two feet and which is 7 million years older than the oldest remains ever found in Africa.

So one might have to think about an "into Africa out of Africa theory". It's super new, so scientist really have to look into that. But those findings might turn the actual theories upside down.

Didn't the Nazis say something similar?

The out of Africa theory only has to do with homos, and more so homo sapiens.

Yes but even Homo sapiens might have some predecessor. Maybe even MUST have. And this discovery in Germany (and if you prefer it Europe) that shows some upright walking creature, which is like 3x older than the oldest remains found in Africa might be a game changer.

Science can only rely on what it knows. And until today, the oldest remains where always found in Africa. That is no longer the case. So I am curious on how that develops.

Re: BREAKING: 'Oldest remains' outside Africa reset human migration clock

All homos have the same ancestor. All Homos have existed in the last 2.5 million years.

Homos came from australopithecus, which is what Lucy belongs to.

Bipedalism before this discovery has been thought to be between 4-7 million years ago. This discovery would obviously push that back.

That's all it's about - bipedalism.

An ancestor being in Europe at this time, I don't think would be a surprise as the Earth was warmer at the time. Greenland didn't even have a glacier 11 million years ago.

But this is still actually shocking as a finding as it means that this is way before humans and chimps' common ancestor lived (6 millions ago). It does not obviously that this particular hominid is a common ancestor for chimpanzees and us.
