Interesting find and yes, it does bring up an interesting debate. I tend to lean toward the geneticists, mainly because absence of fossils, is not
evidence FOR something. It is lack of evidence for something, so if we find that evidence in another form, it is still evidence. Fossilization is
incredibly rare, and Africa is by far once of the least conducive environments for that to happen. It's possible that this cousin of Neanderthal
burned their dead, or we just haven't found them yet because they lived in countries we can't explore. Don't forget Neanderthal had similar intellect
to modern day humans. I wouldn't dwell on lack of fossils. They also didn't mention Denosivans so I don't think they are talking about them. Very
good article. I will be following this.
Perhaps interbreeding is a much bigger determining factor in evolution than we originally thought.
