Modern People 200 kya

It seems that modern people, Homo sapiens, appeared in Africa about 200 thousand years ago (although the date is far from clear) and lived there while the Neanderthals were spreading around the world.

Some may find it hard to accept that humans have evolved from animals, yet there are many facts leading to this conclusion. Human cells are eukaryotic, the same as animal cells. Our chromosomes and genes are almost identical to some of the apes. So are our tissues and organs. Fossil bones have been found, showing how people evolved.

The main difference between people and other animals is their ability to solve problems, which comes from the large size of their brain, and their ability to pass on their solutions to others, which comes from their use of language.
