We've Seen How This Movie Ends

A new genetic study by Stanford University scientists suggests that the total number of human beings on earth may have been reduced to as few as 2,000, as recently as 70,000 years ago. A statement released with respect to the study observed:
Tiny bands of early humans, forced apart by harsh environmental conditions, coming back from the brink to reunite and populate the world. Truly an epic drama, written in our DNA.
The story also quotes Paleontologist Meave Leakey:
Who would have thought that as recently as 70,000 years ago, extremes of climate had reduced our population to such small numbers that we were on the very edge of extinction?

Wow. That's quite a dramatic story. More HERE.

Imagine the entire human population reduced to such tiny numbers by some environmental disaster.

It's positively Old Testament.

[Wait, wait! Don't tell me! That picture is by whom?]
