Confessions of an old but "New" Author

Background Information

Well, well... I might as well start off with a confession. I am a first time author at 61 years of age. "50,000 A.D. The Awakening" is my first novel -- sci-fi of course -- and hopefully won't be my last.
Why did I wait so long? Good question.
I'm not exactly a novice writer. I have written non-fiction in the technical and engineering fields, that is to say lot's of equipment and operation manuals, very little fiction.
The story of this book is what motivated me. I have had the basic idea stuck in my mind for about 20 years and finally wrote it down on paper (I mean computer -- I'm not that ancient    ) starting about a year and a half ago.
The basic idea is this: an asteroid crashes on Earth but manages to avoid destroying our hero Henry Matthews. He is partially protected by an old forgotten bomb shelter he's located in, as well as an assortment of various chemicals located there. This bomb shelter is blasted out into outer space by that asteroid, where it is found 50,000 years later.
Here's the basic plot. When Henry Matthews is awakening by those future technological experts, not only is he surprised to find out what era he's in, the people who woke him up are surprised to find out he's 50,000 years old.
You see from their point of view, human beings were created only about 35,000 years ago.

However, some refuse to believe human history is older than 35,000 years, so that could only mean one thing. Henry Matthews must be something other than a human being.
...but what?
