‘Now That’s a Mystery!’ (2016)

The place has got funny trees, too.

Socotra Island, in the Arabian Sea, is over 200 miles from the nearest land. If you want to get there, you need a boat or a plane. So scientists had a big surprise a couple of years ago when they discovered prehistoric stone tools there.


Not just any stone tools. The oldest kind. The kind scientists say were only made by the most primitive hominids, Homo habilis, a million years ago.

So how did they wind up on Socotra?

The Darwinian model offers no explanation for this. Maybe the scientists had better un-discover the tools.

It takes full-fledged people-people to build a ship capable of going to Socotra. And there’s no getting around that.
