Some militant African/Black scholars are so excited about the 'new' information posted at http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/80beats/2011/10/14/100000-year-old-paint-factory-suggests-early-humans-knew-chemistry/ and http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/african-cave-yields-paint-from-dawn-of-humanity/2011/10/12/gIQApyHrhL_story.html?wpisrc=nl_politics . One of them has thus exclaimed: "This is quite clear now and this proves that chemistry originated in South Africa- not Egypt"! Another one has thus stated: "Since Africa is the place where all humankind originated. It is only befitting that what the outside world calls chemistry originated in AFRICA. It’s about time the world acknowledged the truth about AFRICA and the black race"! Yet another one has thus added a mathematical twist from his student: "It echoes what we are learning and discussing in class about African Fractal Theory and Mathematics"! However, the old questions remain:
THEN WHAT HAPPENED?
