Hi, I've looked and couldn't see this posted before so I apologise if it has.

Its a BBC news article on a new species of Human that was extant at the same time as modern man and Neanderthal which apparently interbred with Homo sapiens.


Scientists say an entirely separate type of human identified from bones in Siberia co-existed and interbred with our own species.



According to the researchers, this provides confirmation there were at least four distinct types of human in existence when anatomically modern humans (Homo sapiens sapiens) first left their African homeland



Scientists were able to analyse DNA from a tooth and from a finger bone excavated in the Denisova cave in southern Siberia. The individuals belonged to a genetically distinct group of humans that were distantly related to Neanderthals but even more distantly related to us.



The study shows that Denisovans interbred with the ancestors of the present day people of the Melanesian region north and north-east of Australia. Melanesian DNA comprises between 4% and 6% Denisovan DNA.

lol I live near Cheddar (cave system with very old human remains) and they did some DNA tests on the skeletons found there and the local people and one guy (the local school teacher if I remember correctly) had a direct DNA link to the skeleton.

I wouldn't be surprised if some of the people that live in the villages around here have a larger than normal amount of Neanderthal DNA

The second post in this thread is epic! Oh and bullets aren't really magic, bigfoot is in some sense real, aliens are all around us, and 9/11 was not OBL handywork.

This reminds me of the segment in the Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy where those people get sent back in time and land on earth when Neanderthals were here. The local people left baskets of food and such for the newly arrived people from the future. Well the newly arrived people started taking more than they needed and we can assume what happened next.

P.S. I read these books several years ago so my quotes maybe off. But i do highly recommend giving them a read.
