Humanity’s Roots

Roots_5167
One thing we know about every individual on the earth. Each of us was produced by a man and a woman. Furthermore, the man who contributed to our genes, our father, had a father and mother, as did the woman, our mother. Not very controversial, is it? If we continue counting the fathers and mothers for each father and mother, before we reach the roots of farming societies the figure is greater than the amount of people who ever lived on the earth.

How is that possible? How can each individual on the earth be the product of more fathers and mother that there ever were? There is but one explanation. We have common ancestors in the past. Lots of them. We are all part of the same family.

Microbiologists have traced the trail of DNA in our cell’s mitochondria back to a single female who lived somewhere around Lake Victoria in Africa about 180 000 years ago. We are all part of the same family.

If we are not convinced by math and biology, religion also tells us that two individuals started the family that we are all part of.

If you can’t wrap your head around the evidence from math, biology and religion try thinking with you heart. It won’t lie to you. We are all part of the same family.

We are members as specialists on the human form.”
