We now realize that humans did not evolve from monkeys but from a common ancestor. This common ancestor and the links between us and it are still a mystery. A popular idea is the Out-Of-Africa theory, in which, humans have a common ancestor that sprouted in Africa and dispersed throughout the world. We have the Java man in Asia, Australopithecus in Africa and Cro-Magnons and Neanderthals in Europe. Pangea possibly polarized the early hominids and thus each evolved into distinct characters based on environment.
