oh yeah. i totally get this. they find a single bone from a finger, and this is extrapolated to say that it is a new form of human.
I am surprised that they didn't try to draw what it looked like based on that finger.
And we call this "science".
The surprising discovery came after researchers analysed unusually well-preserved DNA from the bone. The findings, reported today in the journal Nature, confirmed that the specimen came from a young girl who was neither "modern human" nor Neanderthal.
The research suggests genetic material derived from Denisovians makes up around 4 per cent to 6 per cent of the genetic code of at least some Melanesians.
