Homo habilus lived 2.5-1.6 million years ago, apparently the first species to appear in our genus Homo. Their remains often have parts from making primitive stone tools mixed in. Homo habilis has often been thought to be the ancestor of the lankier and more sophisticated Homo ergaster, which in turn gave rise to the more human-appearing species, Homo erectus. More recent findings indicate that Homo habilis & Homo erectus coexisted and may be separate lineages from a common ancestor, instead of Homo erectus having descended from Homo habilis.
Archaeological evidence shows Homo erectus originally migrated from Africa around 2 million years ago, and dispersed throughout most of the Old World. Such length of time allows evolution of human types outside God's (Allah's, Jahveh's) exclusive supposedly created eastern Mediterranean light skinned Jews and Arabs, such as Africans (Negroes) & pygmies (under 5' or 1.5m tall), and also distinctly different looking Indians, Chinese, Japanese, Polynesians, Native Americans, etc., not covered by the old religious doctrine of God's (Allah's, Jahveh's) Special Creation of (light skinned) Adam only a few thousand years ago, with Eve created from his rib, for their resulting descended humans.
So where then did such different human populations arise from, racially distinct from those God (Allah, Jahveh) supposedly exclusively Created primarily for spreading recently around the SE Mediterranean Sea? Fossilized ancient human remains 1.8-1 million years old have been found in Africa, Europe, Indonesia, Vietnam, China.
By a million years ago, stone tools were found improved over simply striking off a simple piece to get a usable sharp edge. By 40,000 years ago, stone tools were being made in more special shapes, some shaped with many pieces specially broken off, such as to produce long somewhat thin blades and spear points.
Quite normal looking human skulls have been found from ~25,000 years ago, long before God's (Allah's, Jahveh's) claimed creation of the first human.
