I am inclined to at least partially agree, except to understand that we are meaning the Sahul which includes the sea bottom of the Sunda Sea and Eastern Indonesia and Papua New Guinna. My reasons are based on the ideal conditions for thousands of villages to emerge on the thousands of miles of coastline.
This produced both the social evolution and the physical evolution to a sea adapted primate. From that breakthrough, expansion was world wide for massive populations easily absorbing band hunters as time progreessed.
We still have good reason to also suspect an additional African adjustment some 200,000 years ago to produce modern man..
At the same time it is becoming abundantly clear that the white race is a successful hybrid between these Indonesian types and neanderthals that omitted the male lineage. 40,000 years is about right. a similar adjustment must have occured for the Negroids in Africa as well.
The real stunner is that those sea based villagers were at it for 400,000 years as i anticipated in my own discussion in Paradigms shift...

The First Nations peoples of the Great Southern continent now called Australia were not ignorant savages stagnating in their primitive inadequacies and laziness, as the British invaders have been maintaining and indeed teaching for the past 230 years. Archaeologist's findings together with scientific analogy is now pointing towards the history of these people as the beginning of what is known as 'modern man' in this region, at least.
Professor Clive Gamble (Southampton University) succinctly summarised the current impasse and polarisation this has caused, when declaring we have to construct "a completely new map of the world and how we peopled it."1 Granted, our response to Gambles call may seem radical, however, these discoveries, found not only in America but throughout the entire Indo-Pacific Region, all point to the same ancient southern inspiration.
After extensive consultation and research, we are of the opinion that at some time in the distant past, no less than 50,000 years ago and possibly much earlier, Aboriginal men and women set sail from Australia and began exploring foreign lands. They were the bearers of new insights and options, and bequeathed humanity the cornerstones of civilisation: religion, culture, gender equality, art, sailing, democracy, astronomy, surgery, and their genes.
Australian Aboriginal guardians of traditional Lore and Law have made it clear to us that they are indeed the "First Race."2 They were not, as assumed by some of the general public, ignorant savages stagnating in their primitive inertia. As highly respected Dhungutti Elder Rueben Kelly states, "Centuries ago you white people chose the path of science and technology. That path will destroy the planet. Our role is to protect the planet. We are hoping you will discover that before it’s too late."3
Unlike others out in the field or laboratory, we’ve discovered nothing: our role is to act as scribes and faithfully present their history. The rest is easy: find white-fella proof to substantiate black-fella truth.
