We know know that the modern human stemmed from ...

... a split about 300,000 years ago from the Homo gene pool.

According to current carbon dating, Neanderthals appeared about 800,000 years ago.
Does that suggest that "humans evolved in 800,000 years" to what we are today?

This seems like a short period to us considering the Earth is 100's of millions of years old.

Does that suggest that other life forms could have been capable of visiting or evolving in such a time frame?

Why humans?
