Humans first evolved in Africa, and much of human evolution occurred on that continent.

Genesis 1:26 (KJV) 26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness....

The fossils of early humans who lived between 6 and 2 million years ago come entirely from Africa. Early humans first migrated out of Africa into Asia probably between 2 million and 1.8 million years ago. They entered Europe somewhat later, between 1.5 million and 1 million years. Species of modern humans populated many parts of the world much later.

When it comes to skin color, the team found a patchwork of evolution in different places, and three separate genes that produce light skin, telling a complex story for how European’s skin evolved to be much lighter during the past 8000 years. The modern humans who came out of Africa to originally settle Europe about 40,000 years are presumed to have had dark skin, which is advantageous in sunny latitudes. There is an acknowledgment from science that Chromosome Adam and Mitochondria Eve were Africans that God made first and biblical Adam and Eve were made second.
