Yes you are parroting there what Alister Hardy and Elaine Morgan wrote.

The current scientific evidence of outside of your imaginary kook universe is is that,
let me restore:
It started from African woodland apes. We see Pre-Oldowan woodland ape
tools in Africa from 3.3 mya.
Oldowan tools (and butchered hippos) in Africa from 2.9 mya. Oldowan
tools elsewhere are all after 2 mya so some homo spread out with those.
The later Acheulean tools we see similarly starting from 1.76 mya East
Africa and then spreading to elsewhere slowly between 1.5 mya to 0.8
So all Mode I and Mode II "technology" came from Africa and spread slowly
elsewhere. Also everything indicates that inventors preferred eating medium
to large game to harvesting seashores.
