Are We All Related?

We ALL came from Africa. No, really. Every human being on earth came from Africa. Even Republicans.

Each one of us shares a common ancestor in our family tree, and according to math, this person lived only around 3000 years ago. Even though we have no idea who that person is, we are basically related. WHAT’S UP, COUSINS?!

THIS IS COOL. I WANT TO LEARN SOMETHING ELSE, TOO!

  2. You don;t have to go back very far in your ancestry to realize how many different people we are related to. It all makes sense to me.

    • My end of the family is pretty inbred. And also, I have a lot of relatives who’ve never heard of me and vice versa and who live in Bolivia. NO idea where the connections are and how they wound up in Bolivia. Quite likely they are the part of the family (grandparents) who ran away from the Nazis and landed in South America.

  3. It’s a really interesting subject. The only bad part is that we are probably all related to Donald Trump.

  4. I think it makes sense, but it might also have made sense for there to be some other sort of ‘punctuated equilibrium’, as they call it, resulting in more people of the level of (pre-)homo sapiens or other compatible species to breed with which might show up in slightly different places, or on continents where drift happened thus making groups come together or go apart–or something. (That is my version of what passes for science on the internet–sorry!) But yes, abridged version is: wow, we really are from a relative very small pool of beings. ahaha!
