Did Human Ancestors Originate in Europe Over 7 Million Years Ago?

Until recently, the earliest known human ancestors were believed to have originated in Africa 7 million years ago. But a few months ago, paleoanthropologists found fossils in Europe that were even older.

Were Advanced Societies Decimated by Asteroids 12 000 Years Ago?

There was a recent Joe Rogan podcast that was fascinating because the main guests were Graham Hancock, Randall Carlson, and Michael Shermer. They got into a heated debate about whether advanced civilizations existed approximately 10 000-12 000 years ago, and if they did, how their populations were decimated.
