Thanks for the thread, but isn't hair and fur two different things? They're from different species...


Seriously? You're asking if hair and fur are two different things?
Seriously?


No... I didn't ask that. You must be seeing things...


Hehe.


See? When I'm wrong I admit it! I'm not like many others on this site who have ego problems...


That's awesome.
You're awesome.
Anyway, I'm the stupid one, remember?
lol

Red Hair A Legacy Of Neanderthals

Red hair may be the legacy of Neanderthal man. Oxford University scientists think the ginger gene, which is responsible for red hair, fair skin and freckles, could be up to 100,000 years old. They say their discovery points to the gene having originated in Neanderthal man, who lived in Europe for 260,000 years before the ancestors of modern man arrived from Africa about 40,000 years ago.



www.arts.telegraph.co.uk.../connected/2002/10/04/ecfhair04.xml&sSheet=/co nnected/2002/10/04/ixconn.html" target="_blank" class="postlink">archive link

The idea was based on a claim that the gene was at least 100,000 years old and so may have been present before modern man left Africa. To pass into our DNA, our ancestors would have had to have interbred with Neanderthals - an unfashionable theory among the experts in human origins.


Scots may be directly descended from Neanderthal man

The conclusion the team draws is that the red hair, freckles and pale skin which characterise Scots are most likely the genetic legacy of a long-dead species, known for being hairy and having prominent brows and receding foreheads. Around 10% of Scots are redheads, while an additional 40% of the population with other hair colourings carry the gene responsible for red hair.


There's lots more, but you get the point.
And who did I call a Neanderthal?
Oh, and you spelled "cited" wrong.
Just sayin'....

Seriously though people, lighten up.

OP is pointing out the absurdity in the purported conclusion.
I have nothing more to say, other than obviously this thread is rubbing some people the wrong way.
Hopefully no one will lose any sleep over it.

Hehe, but I'm the one that looked stupid.


But at the same time, when I admit I'm wrong, I feel a little better and humble. After all, my objective is to learn.

Don't get me wrong - I've had my moments on here.

But back on topic - Interesting nevertheless. That's all I have.

People with red hair are just like everyone else.


Which leads me to believe you don't know any red haired people.


We've got: Fiery tempers more than their 'duller' haired friends? You Bet. Way more stubborn than most? You bet! We've got the tops on that.

Oh! And interestingly enough, it's a know scientific fact red haired people need more anesthesia than others also.

Kindred Sprits of a Red Head!

We know who we are! Here’s a list of what typically has been thought to make up the character of a typical red head - that are far from typical at all!


- temperamental/hot headed
- insane
- traitors
- untrustworthy characters (as we have clearly made a deal with the devil)
- oversexed
- eccentric
- stubborn
- passionate
- smart
- unlucky
- courageous
- feisty and strong-willed
- daring and adventurous
- like their hair color, are rare and unique and one-of-a-kind
- are good in the bedroom, and take initiative
- are somewhat social misfits, by either being a bully that everyone in the playground is scared of, or by being an outcast

Redhead's history of discrimination is sadly funny too:
- Ancient Egyptians buried redheads alive to get rid of the "evil taint"
- Between 1483-1784 in Germany, 45,000 redheads were tortured, drowned and burned because of the belief that redheads were witches
- During the Spanish Inquisition, red hair was supposedly a sign of a person's association with the devil
- In France Redheaded women are treated with high respect
- In Denmark, is an honor to have a redheaded child
- In Poland, if you pass three red-heads you'll win the state lottery

DID YOU KNOW....
...Red hair is a genetic mutation?
...Red hair is seen on the heads of only four percent of people?
...A 2002 study found that redheads are harder to sedate than any other people (requiring twenty percent more anesthesia)?
...Bees are thought to sting redheads more than others?


And now Add to the List! If you’re a read head you’re a Neanderthal!!!

I don’t remember where I got this info but I stuck it in a file to pass iton to MY REDHEADED FRIENDS and will pass it on here to ATS - sorry to who wrote it - I’d love to give you credit!

Proud to be a Red Head!

peace

JK Rowling has Neanderthal hair?


Now we've found out that Neanderthals shared a trait for red hair. That doesn't necessarily mean that that's where the human trait for red hair came from.
This dog has red hair. I guess we are to conclude that the canine trait for red hair came from the human gene pool. I have included this picture as proof. Plus, it must be true because I found it on the internet.





Now Thats a good laugh to start the day with.
So pretty much if your a Ranger/Red Head/Carrot top your a dog


??? What if you have traces of red i.e a few hairs here and there ???

I love this thread, the picture is awesome because my best friend has red hair, and now i finally have proof to show him that he knows nothing. Will definitely send the picture to him. Is there anyway to download it or just copy and paste this link to my friend? I guess it is easier just to send him a link to this page and hopefully he is smart enough to be abkle to read it.

Red Haired folk are of the Celtic Line. The ancient white peoples of old.
There are few of them nowadays and they are from a time when the world was a lot different.

Some even reckon that red-haired people 'aren't-from-around-here' if you know what I mean. As in from 'Out There' somewhere!


It is interesting that, in the UK (England mostly) there's a malignant and moronic trait from the working classes disliking them.
I often wonder if that was formented from the elites during the Roman period when the Celts were pushed back to Wales, Scotland, Cornwall and Ireland.

Red haired people have always been considered witches in british isles. Thats with all the hate they get. That means they are more in tune with reality and nature. Nature is energy afterall.

Sick isn't it, how people are so ignorant, and petty they cannot stand people may have abilities they do not.

Nothing to do with Neanderthals, thats pure rubbish. I bet mankind has been done over and over again. This thread is just to hate one more on a certain type of people. Evolution is pure garbage, and they use this sort of stuff to rubbish certain groups.

Its like albinos in africa, the same thing was done to them.

Those with Auburn hair are also deemed red heads.



Alexander was almost certainly blonde.
But Churchill was a red-head (until he went bald).
