“Researchers suggest that virtually all modern men—99% of them, says one sci- entist—are closely related genetically and share genes with one male ancestor, dubbed ‘Y-chromosome Adam.’ We are finding that humans have very, very shallow genetic roots which go back very recently to one ancestor…That indicates that there was an origin in a specific location on the globe, and then it spread out from there.” U.S. News & World Report, December 4, 1995
“In new genetic studies of modern human origins, scientists think they have found strong evidence that there was an ancestral ‘Adam’ about 188,000 years ago to go with the previously discovered ‘Eve.’ The scientists used certain male-specific segments of the Y chromosome, the chromosome passed from father to son, to trace the common ancestor of every man now on earth to that period.
“Earlier analysis of the DNA of the mitochondria. . . indicated that all humans have as a common ances- tor one woman who lived in Africa some 200,000 years ago—and inevitably has been stuck with the name Eve. All human mitochondrial DNA now extant, it seemed, derived from a single ancestral mitochondrial molecule from that place and time.” The New York Times
