    I take the basic report at face value.

    Some South American sites once occupied by Stone Age people are closer to the Atlantic coast, raising the possibility of the first colonisation involving a movement of people from Africa.
    This comment, however, ignores the need to invent ocean-going sailing and open ocean navigation.
    (There may be something on that in the paper. I can't see beyond the pay wall.)

    It is not the first time an early migration from Africa to America is being proposed. However the distance is pretty large and I find it doubtful that Humans could make this kind of travel 23kya or older. Atlanteans maybe ?

    I've heard once of a castaway fisherman from Cape Verde that arrived to Brazil after nearly 54 days, It's not completely impossible, but unlikely either way taken the year in account.

    Some anthropologists don't take these dates as valid, or think that these stones or fires weren't made by humans. Here's a review according to which most Indigenous Americans trace their ancestry to the Clovis people that arrived in South America no earlier than 13,000 YBP. If there were other humans, they either became extinct or didn't make a significant contribution to present-day Amerindians.
