Out of Africa

The Out of Africa theory of human origins would be more impressive if simians were confined to Africa. But, of course, there are New World simians as well as Old World simians. And even Old World simians aren't confined to Africa. You have various species in East Asia and South Asia. Given the diverse geographical distribution of simians, it's harder to argue that they all originated in Africa, or man in particular.
