We didnt come from them because you dont like how they look, thats all. If you want to prove the currently accepted theories wrong then do your own research and come up with something better. The "pure" Filipino tribal people look like the "pure" Taiwanese people. Maybe there are some slight differences because of Negrito admixture

Remember Austronesian speakers are also a diverse group. Some look like this:

Nothing backs up your claims...even many pure filipinos dont look like pure taiwanese

I haven't seen many 'pure' Filipinos so I can't comment on that, but I'm wondering where the trait of having a very broad nose comes from, if it's not typical of Taiwanese aborigines? I mean I've seen relatively narrow/pointed noses in all Austronesian populations, but they do seem a bit less prevalent in say Java and Malaysia vs the Philippines. Aside from Arab/Indian admixture.

I think the TA's represent a more northerly, rather distinct branch of Austronesian speakers. Perhaps the further south and west you go from Taiwan the more different they look.

To me the Austronesians are analogous to the Celts in Europe. As much a cultural spread.

nothing backs up your claim about most Filipinos coming from Southern China 1,000 years ago rather than from Taiwanese Aborigines. All you have are some websites saying it without the supposed "new evidence" to back it up.

And besides, you dont know which tribe the Filipinos came from. They could have come from a few specific Taiwanese Aborigine tribes, but not the others

The out of Taiwan theory is the most accepted. I dont even have to tell you about it because it's everywhere. On the other hand, I cant find anything about your "out of Southern China during the Iron age" model except for some random websites and they all have the exact same sentence, as if it were copied and pasted over and over. None of them point to any evidence, they just mention that there has been recent evidence. Show me that evidence...
