OK so I laughed One Ryder's joke... and I agree they weren't very pretty...
but They predate Noah by about 48,000 years or so...
They were early ancient man of a whole different species... I like their name...
The Red Deer People... and the article mentioned that the Red Deer of China are now extinct... I'm thinking it had to be pretty hard with such a small body mass to last till the end of the iceage... especially when your food supply isn't doing so well... They had to be some tough little fella's... The Hobbits were pretty tough in the Lord Of The rings too.. come to think of it..
I like articles like this one..
:o)

These people along with Mungo people in Aus prove the out of Africa theory wrong. let's not forget the hobbits of Sth east Asia as well

Mungo people have no DNA link to Africa or anywhere else on the planet, yet are modern humans.

I think the out of Africa theory was cooked up to make us think we're all the same, so the governments are free to import huge numbers of monkeys to work for no pay and keep growth on the up so big business gets more money while we have to put up with the ever increasing demanding whinging imports.

Buddha As The ‘Lord Of The Deer’

There are a number of different claims about where the name of Sarnath for this deer park was derived, with one of them explaining that one of Buddha’s titles is ‘Saranganath’, which means ‘Lord of the Deer’.

As the story goes, Buddha as an enlightened being took the form of a deer and offered his life to a king to take the place of the doe that the king was planning to kill. The king in turn was so moved that he created the park now known as Sarnath as a sanctuary for deer.

Sarnath

The park and the town that has grown up around it is situated 8 miles (13Km) north of the city of Varanasi in the State of Uttar Pradesh in India.

It is reached by road from Varanasi by crossing the Varuna river and traveling along the aptly named Guatam Buddha Rajpath road.

No one existed 11,500 years ago. Just ask Rick Santorum.

It's all about the god cult, the Adam and Eve story. Without having something to cling to as in one birth place of man, the entire mythology falls apart. The problme they face is realoty is completely the opposite of thwt they claim and the mnore we find out, the worse it gets for ideologists.

Logically, all continents are break offs from Gondwanaland, Aus. So modern man theoretically may be started here, in the form of Mungo man people. We may discover the Red deer people may have links with mungo people and Hobbits.

What amazers me is how fast all these supposed ancestors of original Africans changed so much regionally in such a short evolutionary time, 70000 years.

Maybe it's Africans who are the offshoots of modern humans deriving from Asia/Aus, they just haven't found the evidence. For all we know, Mungo's could have been around for 100000 of years before current indigenous came about.
