No one can refute a negative.

Then (if they existed at all) they had nothing to do with the populating of the Americas. No one cares who the one-day failures were. I've already referenced to the Robinson Crusoe possibility. One duck doesn't make a flock.

"5. Are there human remains that are reliably dated older than 11,500 B.P.?" No.

"In the 1960s, for instance, famed archaeologist Louis Leakey received several National Geographic Society grants to fund excavations at Calico Hills, a site in California that had been rumored to contain stone tools at least a hundred thousand years old.
Unfortunately for Leakey, the site’s particular geology produced stone flakes that looked a lot like tools—making it all but impossible to tell the difference between natural and human-made objects. Modern consensus is that the stone “tools” are naturally occurring.
“Nobody’s gone back and seriously touched that site at all,” says Dillehay. “Leakey was burned, [and] the people associated with the site were burned, so to speak. These things happen.”
"The Calico-Coyote Lake area is my main research area. The surface archaeologial
sites that are considered "Lake Manix" sites are prehistoric quarries with
aborted bifaces. Before these sites were looted, aborted percussion bifaces
dominated the assemblages. I have looked at every "mint" specimen from the
subsurface excavations at Calico, and I do not consider any of the items
to be man-made."

“ And it was Louis’s attempt to fulfill this
desire at Calico Hills in the Mojave Desert
that was so catastrophic to his professional
career and was largely responsible for the
parting of our ways……I saw the finds, which
consisted of fractured pieces of chert..”

" Since the
discovery and definition of Clovis,
researchers have searched for evidence
of an even older occupation of
the Americas, but most sites dating
before Clovis investigated between
1960 and 1995 [e.g., Calico (California),
Tule Springs (Nevada), Pendejo
Cave (New Mexico), Pedra
Furada (Brazil), Pikimachay Cave
(Peru), and Tlapacoya (Mexico)] have
not held up to scientific scrutiny
(2, 39)."
