Do you have an alternative explanation for the high genetic diversity of Africans other than Africa being the ancestral homeland of humanity?
Like is said twice before the current observable genetic diversity in Africa can be explained by events known in relatively recent history,also the genetic diversity will depend on frequency of interbreeding and who among us can provide an accurate rate of interbreeding? why would you want to extrapolate the current genetic data to be valid at the time when Humans evolved.
So many European and Asian people during the course of known history have been either residing or occupying parts of Africa in the last say 5000-6000 years.That caused the genetic diversity you currently observe in Africa,no need to attribute it to the origin of modern humans in Africa. It's like saying that since today so many Caucasian are found in south Africa means they evolved there.lol

Well, what i deeply suspect is that he is trying to link it with his pet Out of India Theory to an extent to state that Hominids and Modern Humans evolved, migrated out of India to other places, and to africa also.

And what is that theory based on??

Not on what was discovered.


Early Humans Settled India Before Europe, Study Suggests
November 14, 2005


(...)

The Indian subcontinent was once home to Homo heidelbergensis, a hominid species that left Africa about 800,000 years ago, Petraglia explained.

"I realized that, my god, modern humans might have wiped out Homo heidelbergensis in India," he said. "Modern humans may have been responsible for wiping out all sorts of ancestors around the world."

"Our model of India is talking about that entire wave of dispersal," he added. "[T]hat's a huge implication for paleoanthropology and human evolution."

A New Model

Petraglia and James reached their conclusions by pulling together fossils, artifacts, and genetic data.

The evidence points to an early human migration through the Middle East and into India, arriving in Australia by 45,000 to 60,000 years ago, they say.


(...)

The modern humans who colonized India may also have been responsible for the disappearance of the so-called Hobbits, whose fossilized bones were discovered recently on the Indonesian island of Flores.

But Athreya of Texas A&M argues that the evidence for such a "replacement event" in India remains weak.

"You have to explain the reasons for the replacement, [such as] technical superiority," she said.

"The genetic evidence shows there were multiple migrations out of Africa, so there would have been multiple migrations into [India]. But I think these migrating populations didn't completely replace the indigenous group."


(...)

The subcontinent has produced just one set of early Homo sapiens fossils, found in a cave in Sri Lanka and dated to about 36,000 years ago.

Despite this, Petraglia hopes his analysis throws new light onto early human history in India.

if people migrated to and fro, why is the genetic diversity not everywhere around Africa as high as in Africa itself?

OMG...pet out of India theory?? Out of India is in reference to spread of Vedic civilization from India to different parts of the world and is the converse of the Aryan invasion/migration theory where Vedic culture and civilization is brought to India from outside by a bunch called the Aryans.
Out of Africa is in relation to geographic location where modern homo sapiens evolved if they evolved (as suggested by Darwin and his bunch).
The alternative to Out of Africa is the theory of Multi regionalism where it is stated that modern humans evolved from ancestors separately in different parts of the world and the primitive ancestors had already dispersed to regions in Asia,Europe and Africa and that is the reason we see so much variations in humans from different regions.

A lot is not known to us regarding how modern humans evolved,or did the evolve as suggested by current evolutionists so it gets very difficult to then state that we evolved in Africa.

Are you also  suggesting that primitive ancestors left Africa, did a bit of local mutating to evolve into modern humans, and then - mutated and all -  they all went back to Africa, causing a high genetic diversity?

Maybe,also people today from different parts of the world still go to Africa and inter breed causing even more genetic diversity.How would that prove that Humans originated there?? Half the European nations occupied different parts of Africa because it is mineral rich in the recent past which would have caused great amounts of Inter breeding and genetic diversity, many Asian peoples also went to Africa in the last 5000-6000 years and interbred there to create a lot of genetic diversity.There are so many historical referrences of people from asia and europe going to Africa in the last 5000-6000 years,they must have interbred and caused the genetic diversity.

Like i said the frequency of mutation in modern humans is so low that it is difficult to imagine that our ancestors evolved so fast to give rise to us. We can't even be sure that humans evolved in the manner heralded by the mainstream evolutionist.Still the evolutionist arbitarily give the time frame of last 200,000 years as the life of Homo sapiens but it is entirely possible that Homo Sapiens were present since before.

Also if you agree with the evolutionists that modern homo sapiens evolved 200,000 years back then when would suggest that civilization started?? only 5000-6000 years ago? Basically homo sapiens chilled around the globe for more then 195,000 years and all of a sudden decided to get civilised ....lol. This argument is the origin of all theories suggesting that there were many glorious ancient civilizations of which we do not have a memory and also the ancient astronaut theory who flew down to Earth and gifted our primitive ancestors civilization and in some theories also genetically modified or artificially evolved our primitive ancestor into Us. These are the only two alternatives that make sense..either we acknowledge that civilizations existed way before we today concede or that we were gifted civilization over very short periods of time by Gods/Aliens.

Ever heard of Göbekli Tepe?

11,000+ years old. And I don't think it just fell out of the sky. Many similar aged places have been found in Anatolia (Karahan Tepe, and lots more/ I have posted quite a lot about them).

Once again they parade adaptation and variations as proof of evolution. Let me put it this way...why haven't we grown an extra limb or doubled our brain size?
The truth about the matter is that all the examples of evolution that are listed in the link were traits already present in Humans 50,000 years ago,nothing new has evolved only phenotypical frequency has changed which cannot be termed as evolution.Why haven't people living in subzero temperatures started growing a thick coat of fur on their body and started hibernating for 6 month periods? now that would convince me.
Blue eyes,Lactose digestion,Brain size are not indications of evolution as they were present in Humans even 50,000 years ago.

Why would these different people go to Africa? is a million dollar question...though i can answer a part of it i.e mainly to dominate the local populace and steal their naturally abundant resources.......and the rest of these people you can ponder yourself why they went,all we know is they did go there as recorded in relatively modern history. Surely these people didn't migrate there because they thought that it was the origin of modern humans.

Gobekli Tepe is not considered to be a civilization by the mainstream,even if you stop only at Tepe and 11,000 years back.....homo sapiens still had an idle time of 1,89,000 years according to evolutionists.
I am myself of the opinion that there were great lost civilizations in antiquity even before Gobekli Tepe and our currently accepted timeline of the evolution of homo sapien and civilization is wrong.

You should read the second link.

People migrated to and fro all over the globe, but only in Africa we find the highest genetic diversity.

You still have not found an answer to that one.

People migrated all over Asia, back and forth, but the genetic diversity is nothing like that in Africa.

I knew you would say that, but what I found out seems to come very close to a civilization. This is not just about Göbekli Tepe.

And, like I said, the Anatolian culture if you like, didn't come falling out of the sky.

In fact, many of these Anatolian places were already settled near the end of the last ice age.

Its hard to tell much from skeletons, but homo sapiens had things homo erectus didn't have.  We see that in its toolkit, which remained essentially unchanged for a couple of million years.  Then homo sapiens came in with a new and changing toolkit, that seems to have been something not instinctive (and therefore very little change) but learned (and therefore improvable over time).

That only suggests that there was more interbreeding in Africa then other parts of the world. Africa was more centrally located to other contemporary regions where civilizations existed maybe thats why people flocked there........don't forget gold and daimonds.
