One of the ways that the advocates of multiregional continuity answer your
question (how Homo sapiens could evolve out of erectus over such a wide
area) is to suggest that Homo erectus wasn't really a separate species
from us. In other words, Homo sapiens goes back at least a million and a
half years, and has been developing regional characteristics in various
parts of the Old World ever since, just like any other species.
