    How did they know they should go north? Did they have a crystal ball?

    I'm assuming they were born white from his "theory"; so why didn't they burn to death from the high sunshine? Did aliens provide the sunscreen to protect them? Or did they just walk for thousands of years with peeling skin and sunburns till they reached the north?

    Yeah he says they were born white. And that the white skinned people migrated north to seek lower light levels. He's just 'out there' lol

    Ah they carried their houses with them, in their travels north, then?

    Like tortoises? How fascinating!

    Spurious, I have seen you explain this some time ago but I can't remember where. Maybe you should enlighten Deepthought.

    We are taught from a very early age not to expose our skin to the sun. White mothers instinctively protect their children from the suns energy. We grow up with a fear of the sun and what it can do to us. Our ancestors would have been instinctively aware of this... perhaps even of the link between the suns energy and skin cancer. They would have taken precautions with their children just like we do.

    When the time came they simply followed the cold weather from the north.

    (Life is harder for us than for humans with darker skin)

    Maybe they travelled by wormhole?

    Ideally so, yes. But have you ever been to a beach in the summer ?
    There are LOTS and LOTS of idiots that can't wait to get into the sun and get their asses burned. People love the sun.

    But these white people would be born to black people, so they would not be taught to hide from the sun. Besides, its Africa. Its all sun. This is before clothes, btw. And it would have been too cold to go north naked.

    Enmos,

    We are not talking about a couple of weeks vacation a year... we're talking about exposure to the relentless African sun on a daily basis...every day of ones life in fact.

    Pale skinned people would have been largely confined to the jungle/forest areas where there was some cover.

    There is no hard data on this.

    Traditional African societies didn't develop clothing despite the fact that it gets quite chilly at night.

    This would lead me to speculate that one of the reasons for its development may have been as a shield against the sun. Later on it provided warmth in a northward migration.

    They'd still have to cross the Sahara.


    How would they know to go northward. If they were in the equatorial forest, why would they go towards the desert and certain death?

    They traveled at night, and hid under tents during the day. After a while, they got the idea of simply wearing the tents, to save work.

    Some of them had a hard time seeing the north star, because of their eyefolds, so they turned right by mistake and ended up in China, where they had to eat rice. That made their skin yellow.

    And then when they got to Australia, they turned black again for convenience, and because all they needed to wear were pouches like everything else.

    I haven't figured out where the tower of Babel comes into this.

    The other thing I ahven't figured out is why the white ones left the shady jungle to walk north across open and sunny deserts, while the black ones stayed behind under the trees. Hey Deep, little help ?

    I admit the theory's a little rough around the edges.

    In order to make it more plausible you would have to include other factors of course... for example, conflict between different groups/races over resources. It just doesn't seem plausible that humans would leave the incredibly rich and food abundant equatorial region of Africa without some forceful pressure of some kind. Considering human history is largely a result of conflict over lands and resources it seems likely that similar conflicts took place back then - humans are ferociously territorial, just like their primate cousins.

    Given the bigger physique and musculature of Central and West Africans it seems logically plausible that in physical conflicts they would have usually triumphed. This led to them dominating this region whilst humans of a smaller stature and pale skin remained in caves in the East African region.

    Ice Ages resulted in a cooling of the African climate... turning the Sahara into open savanna and enabling migration. Pale skin wasn't the only reason for the migration but it does explain why the palest people went north rather than following the tropical route taken by Native American and Aboriginal people.
