15542. Debate Over the Origins of the Human Species.
In regard to the prehistoric decline of the Neanderthal and the rise of modern humans, this paper compares the "multi-regional" theory (modern man arose in various parts of the world) with the "Out of Africa" theory (modern man arose in a single location). Both sides of the debate are discussed, and it is noted that the issue remains unresolved because of a lack of conclusive evidence. 7 pages, 24 footnotes, 6 bibliographic sources.
