It's been known for a while that homo sapiens interbred with Neanderthals, Denisovans and another 3rd mystery species, thus far. It wouldn't surprise
me to find others. Interbreeding is just as big a part of evolution as natural selection is, technically its part of it.
The issue with you saying that it means evolution or "darwinism" (what's that again?) is wrong is this:
How did all those other hominids become different? If you are claiming genetic mutations aren't responsible for change, rather interbreeding is, then
you need to explain how 3 very similar hominid lines came to be in the first place. Here's what the scientists know. It was originally one species,
that for whatever reason, split off and moved into 3 separate regions, probably at different times. They lived in these regions for hundreds of
thousands of years, adapting to the environment. Eventually more homo sapiens left Africa again and interbred with the other similar hominids out
there. They are now more commonly referred to as subs species rather than separate species.
Very good article but the conclusions drawn from it are inaccurate.
