Out of Babel…not Africa: genetic evidence for a biblical model of human origins

In Journal of Creation 34 (1): 79-85, April 2020

The recent human evolution story is a quagmire of ever-changing speculations that vary and conflict in their dates and geographical specifics with each new paleoanthropological or archaic DNA sequence discovery.
