    Hi Dick,

    You misunderstand the 'Out of Africa' name. That is the name of the
    hypothesis that we are all descended from the later migration out of Africa.
    As you correctly note, we came from Africa regardless. Thus, in the
    confusing way that scientific theories are named occasionally, a rejection
    of the Out of Africa theory does not reject the concept that we came our of
    Africa! I believe, as you note, that we are descended from those who came
    out in the earlier migration.
