Description:

The issue-focused, peer-reviewed article presents the two theories about the origin of modern humans: 1) they arose in one place -- Africa and and 2) pre-modern humans migrated from Africa to become modern humans in other parts of the world. Most evidence points to the first theory because: fossils of modern-like humans are found in Africa, stone tools and other artifacts support African origin, and DNA studies suggest a founding population in Africa.
