Where were the very first humans ever? And how did people get to different continents?

Report as

The first modern humans originated in the northern part of what we know as Ethiopia around 200,000 years ago. Slow migration outward through Asia and Europe followed, and short island hopping through Indonesia and Australia. Around 14-17,000 years ago some Asian groups migrated to the Americas via the land bridge that existed at the time in what is now the Bering Strait of Alaska.

In Babylonia the home of the Garden of Aden and the Tower of Babel

1; Dispersal 1. After the flood; Noah drunk and naked; Ham saw it but the brothers covered Noah without seeing it Ham Canaan Kush off to Africa. Japheth off to Caucasus. Sam Philistine.

2; Dispersal 2. Rather vague. Tower of Babel scheme collapses. Division of language then unclear spread.

The first hominid came from Africa and back then the earth was together so when we evolve enough to have the brain mass to explore and for some reason unknown the earth became how it is today,simply and no Magic from a divine source needed

5774 years ago God created man and woman, then put them in the Garden of Eden. This was the sixth day of creation.

Dear Hoytman,

Around 1968, I read a book that began like this:
"Not in innocence, and not in Asia was humankind born."

The book was AFRICAN GENESIS by Robert Ardrey, a fascinating account of our probable evolutionary origins. Several people responding to your question mention Africa as our motherland...and it is certainly an hypothesis worth considering.

Well, according to genetic markers, so far, supposedly humans started somewhere around Ethiopia, and spread out in all directions from there.
Here's a map of the migration paths as shown by genetic markers, so far:

.
As to how they got to different continents, there's distinct evidence that they used a combination of methods, when migrating in groups, over time. They simply walked at first, later using animals to help haul their sled-like contraptions to transport items, eventually building heavy rafts to ride over water, sometimes over long distances whether by intent or accident.
