'Out of Africa' still only a theory?!?!?

Perhaps I'm just blind to the evidence that contradicts the 'Out of Africa'
idea, but how can people believe that the human species could have evolved
over an area as enormous as Homo erectus occupied - Asia, Africa, Europe.
There is no way that a single species could stay intact over such an enormous
area, not and remain a single functioning biological unit. Homo sapiens must
be the product of a relatively small isolated community of Homo erectus
(ergaster) that through mutation and selection became something else, something
that was better adapted and who's reproductive fitness was greater than others'

If anyone has other ideas I'd be interested to hear them...
