The human species as we know it is at least 150,000 years old if not much older.

I agree, humanity is not 6000 years old. But I disagree that humanity is at least 150 000 years old. I will defend that it is from 10 000 to 100 000 years old.
Humanity brought a huge leap in tool technology-axes, awls, needles, hammers and more.
Dates for these cultural big bangs cluster around 40 000 to 45 000 years ago. They were accompanied by the first appearance of art and music and religious pracitices.
And hominids.

Well for starters we have fossils of early homo-sapiens dating back farther then 100,000 years

https://www2.palomar.edu...

along with this we have been able to trace back almost all of human ancestry to a women who lived in Africa more then 100,000 years ago, this person is called the mitochondrial eve "she wasent the first human, their were other humans around but hers is the only surviving lineage in witch all humanity alive today is related"

https://en.wikipedia.org...

Although to find some common interest with your argument while its most likely true that atomically modern homo-sapiens probably were around longer then 100,000 years, the truth of the matter is that are brains have undergone some minute changes during our species existence "mutations, certain thinking processes"
so as for a human that is completely identical to to humans we see today in both appearance, genetics, thought, we would probably only be able to go back around 70,000 years until we started to notice some genetic instinct like differences in the way humans acted.
