  1. This latest astonishing great discovery in Ethiopia presents additional strong evidence that Ethiopia is the origin of humankind in the world. Ethiopian,the origin of humankind means, the country is also the origin of ancient civilization on the globe. This and the previous discoveries,and existing ancient historical relics, monuments etc. found in Ethiopia are only minor fractions of insights about the origin of humankind and footage of ancient human civilizations in the world awaiting discoveries. With this personal remark, I would like to strongly recommend that we should strengthen our capacities for research in all scientific fields so that we will be able to research and discover what we had in our country in the past, what technologies, knowledge, skills do we need etc. by ourselves for better and advanced Ethiopia in the future.

  2. I can’t tell you how proud I am about our very capable and well read countryman scientist Yahannes bin Haile-Selassie for discovering this fossil. I told you all a million times that it was The Almighty Our Creator’s Divine Work & Will that put together that pride, joy & gem of the colored & all humanity, our old country. If you try to take it apart, it will turn into an inferno nobody wants to live in as proven nearby’s. Let’s call out Professor Yohannes and heap praise upon praise on him. Congratulations sir!!!!!

  4. Dear Ittu Aba Farda,
    Thank you very much for your excellent comment here. All points you have indicated in your comment are very impressive and absolutely right. Thank you very much also recognizing countryman scientist Professor Yohannes Haile-Selassie for discovering this fossil. I would like to apologize Scientists Professor Yohannes Haile-Selassie and readers for not appreciating his important and new discovery disclosed in my previous comment here. It is true that we are proud of Scientist Professor Yohannes Haile-Selassie for his new discovery of this fossil. However, still it was my wish that our scientist has done his laboratory analyses of the fossil sample in Ethiopia as well as more than 90% of the research team involved have been Ethiopian scientists and his discovery has been disclosed from his lab/University in Ethiopia. Anyway, it is time for us (Ethiopian) to think aggressively to be self sufficient for scientific research and discovery in the future. Of course these days, the country is heading towards advancing its own science, technology and innovations, thanks to our ever lovely and great leader, PM. Dr. Abiy Ahmed.

  6. Dear Wasse Haile,

    I am always for any countryman to be recognized for an accomplishment that benefits humanity just like Obbo Yohannes. You kidding me? When you find valuable and beneficial achievement by any countryman, it is automatic for me; I am in it; Count me in; It is just a dead giveaway!!!

    When I read the discovery of Lucy in the 1970’s I was uncontrollably proud of the fact that the first human was found in the old country. But I was a little salty that we, we Ethiopians were not the ones who discovered it. We were only shown as ‘hamals, coolies’ doing just the grunt work. There were capable Ethiopian intellectuals then but they were all immersed in the wind of change with most of them living in different and opposite sides. That was the saddest part of our history. We were busy calling each other names and in the middle of all that chaos, a foreigner came in with our own educated guides and proclaimed ‘bingo! I found it’. Please note that ‘I’ not ‘we’. That should not be repeated over and over. I believe this brother of ours has heeded to his call of destiny. Such project should given the status of national treasure and the government should come up with a definitive plan with a budget so our own experts could dedicate their time looking for such fossils including lost and buried historical sites. Foreigner can come in as advisers but not leaders of any such excavating projects. I strongly believe that we have enough of the starter in very field including in both religions. We don’t need preachers from Al Azhar University, some Joint in Riyadh or Tehran and also some eloquent preacher from Tulsa. We have enough and well versed religious experts of our own. We have enough of our own Koran and The Holy Bible already translated in our mother tongues.

    You started me and there ain’t no stopping me now and I better rest my case here. Just like those lines from the Mcfadden and Whitehead mega hit of my younger days:

    Ain’t No Stoppin Us Now!
    We’re on the move!
    Ain’t No Stoppin Us Now!
    We’ve got the groove!
    And if you’ve ever been held down before
    I know you’ll refuse to be held down anymore!
    Don’t you let nothing, nothing
    Stand in your way!

    Thank you for your kind words. Blessings to You and Your Family!!!

  7. I used the word “astonishing” in my comment above because every fossil discovery now and then proves that humankind has originated in Ethiopia. Nothing more than that. At this point I would like to bring to your attention that I am a positive thinker civil servant in Ethiopia and I wish my country to be advanced socially, economically technological etc. where its citizens mutual respect each other, benefit equally from every thing that the country can provide them with. I want to see equality and justice ensured.
