More dates being pushed back to ancient times

I have decided to post a sticky thread on how palaeo dates are so often being pushed back, due to quasi-Creationist Out-of-Africa theorists desperately trying to claim all sorts of nonsense about "modern man" supposedly being superior to everything before.
“When a population becomes distracted by trivia, when cultural life is redefined as a perpetual round of entertainments, when serious public conversation becomes a form of baby-talk, when, in short, a people become an audience and their public business a vaudeville act, then a nation finds itself at risk; a culture-death is a clear possibility.” — Professor Neil Postman, Amusing Ourselves to Death: Discourse in the Age of Show Business

Technically, the above claim is absurd, as most palaeolithic-era art has long been destroyed. I am certain that even homo erectus and homo habilis,the neanderthals etc. all  created their own figurative art.

OoA theory further discredited:- Now it seems humankind originated millions of years ago all over A frica, not just East Africa.

As regards Palaeo times, due to political correctness etc., certain Palaeo-era  dates turned out to have occurred much, much earlier than thought. It is no surprised, therefore, to find that the Portuguese may have been to Australia first.
