Now this is an interesting twist on the genetic history of humanity.

Aboriginal Australians, Pacific Islanders carry DNA of unknown human species, research analysis suggests -ABC.net.au


The analysis suggests the DNA is unlikely to come from Neanderthals or Denisovans, but from a third extinct hominid, previously unknown to archaeologists.

Statistical geneticist Ryan Bohlender and his team investigated the percentages of extinct hominid DNA in modern humans.

They found discrepancies in previous analyses and found that interbreeding between Neanderthals and Denisovans was not the whole story to our ancestors' genetic makeup.


So now there is a third large piece to our genetic puzzle. The mystery of our origins grows deeper and deeper. So, how far back does is go before we reach the common ancestor? Seems human evolution still has a long way to go before we understand how it is we came to be in the first place.

Who's to say they evolved here from hominids at all?
What if their origins are extraterrestrial? What if Denisovans or Neanderthals are as well?

There's too many holes in evolution to exclude a theory of extraterrestrial origins.

It's a hypothesis.

A weak one at that.

No where near enough data to support it in order to be properly called a theory.

Weak hypothesis?
How many skeletons of Neanderthal man do we have? Oh right...zero.

Wow - great stuff!

I think our true origins will remain a mystery for some time. It's incredibly difficult to piece together a coherent theory when most of your data (read: evidence) has been obliterated over time.

DNA analysis at least offers us a hope of something we can begin to follow up on, if not to tell us exactly what our origins are, then at least where to begin looking and what the right questions are.

I'll be following this thread - S&F!

The hell? Try about 400.

Your argument is already falling apart if you can't even get that one right.

S&F, I always thought the aborigines in Australia held some secrets... seemingly much older than many of the known verbal histories. It will be interesting to see what genetics uncover.

Especially interesting point given that the Wandjina Aboriginals have an ancient DreamTime story and cave paintings which allude to an Alien visitation:

50,000 year old cave paintings of 'Aliens'

In short the DreamTime story mentioned that the Wandjina were Gods who created the Earth and all its inhabitants. Once an egg was flying in the sky and came to Earth and 'cracked'. Out came the Wandjina gods with big eyes. They got the tribe elder and opened him up and took something out of him and then exchanged it for something in themselves and from that time on the elder was a Medicine Man.

Speaking of weak, how many skeletons of alien beings do we have?

Oh right....zero.

DNA from an unknown hominid ? The Yowie a.k.a. Bigfoot is what comes to mind.

Look at all the species on earth that cant reproduce with one another..

Yet an et could mate with a human?
Basic instinct says this ia impossible.

Of course claims of high technology will accommodate certain theories.

If you cross a horse with a donkey you get a mule
A mule can't breed

The Abbos clearly can breed, think you may be wishing and hopeing for something not there

Aliens and people, I think that's fantasy

Can you prove that Neanderthal isn't 100% human like us
Seems they are to me

2cents...
Subrace within humanity ?

en.wikipedia.org...

Abo's might even share common traits with Mbote in central Africa. and a now unknow extinct subrace in Europe.

btw... i couldn't see the vid.... but i found this so interesting yet to respond.

Funny this comes out now.. Because in Australia around 10 years ago I was told by an aboriginal elder that the aboriginal people are a slightly different species to other humans..
He said the genetics are different and he was saying that their bodies store vitamin c and my body didn't (I may be wrong in explanation bit was something to that effect)
There were other things he said like the skull for example but he was adamant.. Looks like the old fella could have been right after all..

He was right, kinda.

There are papers out there, unfortunately they don't get a lot of attention because some would deem it racist or insensitive.

A higher percentage of Denisovans than any other modern human.

Screw Multiregional theory or Out of Africa theory...hello Extraterrestrial Theory!

Seems to me DNA can change through adaptation to the environment, Wouldn't mean necessarily these people came from another planet.
