The enigma of the 5.7 million-year-old hominid footprints found on Crete

Almost following on from the previous post, interestingly this story has been posted again.
I reported on this when the new first broke, and it’s another nail in the coffin for the out-of-Africa theory of human evolution.
Interestingly, recently an AI computer has predicted there is another human ancestor that has yet to be discovered.
We are all aware of the theory. It states humans left Africa around 100,000 years ago, a theory I find as absurd as it is simplistic. Human evolution is clearly far more complex than that, and these “human” footprints found on Crete that date to 5.7 million years ago suggest there is a major flaw in the theory.
Whether this was another branch of human ancestor, or a direct human ancestor, is yet to be established, but that is not the point.
The point is there were hominids existing outside of Africa and thus the theory of human evolution only occurring in Africa has to be thrown out.
I have always had the opinion that humans evolved in different parts of the world, evolving into the root races, perhaps through mating, just as Homo sapiens did with Neanderthal. Again, this idea was put forward in my book, although only a brief mention.
Just like the peopling of the Americas, sooner or later the out-of-Africa theory will be in the bin where it belongs.
