some say everyones ancesters are africans
but this doesnt make sense , how did they travel from africa to europe become white and then forget that they ever moved.
they diddnt pass down the knowledge of boats or the continent they originally came from ,so their kids never knew about this past and left people assuming that they were the ones who later created boat travel and discovered africa themselfs ?

A gradual process that took thousands of years before civilization had taken hold......

And actually the original humans were white (all animals skin pigment will generally be white), evolved to have black skin because it's beneficial in extreme heat environments such as africa, then re-evolved white skin via a completely separate gene.

Also add you have no written language, multiple waves if immigration to Europe followed by tens of thousands of years with no written language.

Humans as an automatically modern humans have existed for the last 200,000 years, we moved out of Africa 70,000 years ago, we became behavioural modern humans (aka language and modern socialisation) 50,000 years ago and we didn't transfer to relatively modern civilisations until 10,000-6,000 years ago. You in effect have a 20,000 year gap between moving out of Africa and humans ability to form language.

In effect we only had the capacity to relay such type of events for 25% of our history and recorded history (and the ability to record events permanently) only started 6,000 years ago, aka the most recent 3% of human history.

Religious texts, which originally were passed from word of mouth, do mention mass migrations from the area around the middle east (where humans first spread) and some early ecological disasters (aka noah's flood) some of which are supported by archaeological evidence.

I don't think you are quite grasping the huge timescale of human history.

presuming the adverage lifespan is 60 years, while in reality for the majority of human history it has been much shorter (for those who survive into adulthood) before Roman times, with a generation being around 25 years..... that's around 3300 life spans or 8000 generations from modern humans first appearance.

Before written history you have 1066 life spans or 2560 generation between us leaving Africa and humans finally being able top write down historical events.

By comparison between us and the Roman empire there's only around 33 life spans or 80 generations. Take that a step further, written history has only been around for 100 lifespans or 240 generations.... and we still don't know in truth the extent of migration patterns of that time.

Basically you have just over 10x the amount of time between humans leaving africa and being able to physically record historical events, when compared with all recorded modern history.
