You're in denial... and a liar, boy.
Yes, we've already discussed skin-color gene from OOA time. You're boring me, boy.
And skin color is far from the most important trait to worry about here. It has nothing to do with ancestry, really. It is a reflection of evolution by natural selection.
Y and mtDNA tell the story, boy.
You do know that the from cro magnon died out about 15Kya, do you?
Cylindrical objects made usually of fired clay but sometimes of stone were found at the Yarmukian Pottery Neolithic sites of Shaar HaGolan and Munhata (first half of the 8th millennium BP) in the Jordan Valley. Similar objects have been reported from other Near Eastern Pottery Neolithic sites. Most scholars have interpreted them as cultic objects in the shape of phalli, while others have referred to them in more general terms as clay pestles,clay rods, and cylindrical clay objects. Re-examination of these artifacts leads us to present a new interpretation of their function and to suggest a reconstruction of their technology and mode of use. We suggest that these objects were components of fire drills and consider them the earliest evidence of a complex technology of fire ignition, which incorporates the cylindrical objects in the role of matches.
Drilling has been documented as early as the Natufian culture (15,00011,700 years calBP) through increased numbers of cap stones and drilled stones including beads .
