One Tribe Crossing the Gate of Grief Populated the World
One African Tribe Crossing the Gate of Grief
The ancestral origin of humans was possibly located in southern Africa, near the South Africa-Namibia border. By using modern DNA Geneticists, trace the origins of Homo sapiens outside of Africa to a single tribe.
These ancestors managed to cross from the Horn of Africa and into Arabia through the Gate of Grief. There are 14 ancestral populations in Africa that are linked by ethnicity and shared cultural and language properties. One survived outside of the African continent and from there, just one tribe went on to inhabit the entire world.
There is more genetic diversity in Africa than anywhere else on earth. Dr. Stephen Oppenheimer, a geneticist at the school of anthropology at Oxford University said, "What you can see from the DNA of all non-Africans is that they all belong to one tiny African branch that came across the Red Sea. “If it was easy to get out of Africa, we would have seen multiple African lineages in the DNA of non-Africans but that there was only one successful exit suggests it must have been very tough to get out."
The Gate of Grief is also known as the Gate of Tears or Bab-El-Mandeb in Arabic.
