Any 'reptilian' or 'seed of cain' or 'sky god' or 'insert theory here' DNA
would stick out like a sore thumb in both the coding and the non
coding portions of human DNA. There is no 'god of the gaps' argument
possible with human DNA, unless you say that some sort of 'energy'
or other epigenetic influence is riding in human DNA.
Now that is certainly possible .. (a mystical sort might say the chance
is high; a pure reductionist would say the chance was zero or near
But as far as actual DNA goes, enough samples have been taken from
human populations all over the world, that the most minor differences
can be tracked back over time.. such that I know for example, that
8% of my Lakota Sioux brethren have genes that originated in
Mongolia thousands of years ago.
Any genes that code for reptile shapeshifting or whatever would show
up like a fluorescent 747 flying through the genome. I'd imagine that
such individuals would do everything in their power not to be tested,
should they in fact exist.
Preaching to the choir.
The only DNA I gave reference to was Modern Human, Neanderthal, and Denisova; all of which are quite well documented in the hominid record.
Adam and Eve creationists have this idealized mythology of a human created by some super power god.
In questioning this, IF there was any such creator type (which there's no sign of), then the very data you refer to in tracing back to Mongolia, the
data that's also given us decent detail in confirming that everyone, with exception of a small minority of racially pure subSaharan Africans that
never left Africa and have never mixed with any anyone that has, all of, except them, has Neanderthal DNA, and this mixture would indicate either a
flawed creator, or no creator at all.
Such all ocurred around 40,000 years ago when Africans started migrating out of North-East Africa, and encountered the few Neanderthals extent there.
At some point during contact, over the course of some 10,000 years of human migration and expansion into Neanderthal occupied territories in Europe,
We have Neanderthals interbreeding with Humans, enough so that everyone (except that tiny minority still in Africa) now has anywhere from 2% - 4%
Neanderthal DNA as part of their heritage.
Now, I also mentioned Denisovan, where during Eastern Migration we pick up some extra mixture with them, but, this isn't as universal as Neanderthal,
and is primarily found in Polynesian, Asian, and Eastern Aboriginal peoples, including Australian and PNG aboriginals.
If there were some magical creator being, would they not create a pure-blooded 'man' in their image?
or would this indicate these/this creator(s) were part Neanderthal too, like the rest of us, further supporting a flawed, imperfect, contaminated
The only other argument for a creator/created relation where there IS uncontaminated pure Homo-Sapiens DNA is where we have our Sub-Saharan Africans,
which then, makes the rest of us, who've been mixed up with the biblical equivalent of 'beasts of the fields' (Neanderthal), it would make us
Abominations, but would also at the same time discount a creator/created relationship due our ability to trace Sub-Saharan ancestry back to Homo
Erectus, as well as the fact that the Sub-Saharans never really amounted to much civilizationally which would indict this imaginary god as a failure.
All in all, there was no creator. There is no god, at least no more or less than any other superstition or mythology that's been invented since the
dawn of history.
DNA supports human origins and human migrations along with comingling with other hominids not too far distantly related such that successful offspring
resulted that could in turn make progeny their own.
Nowhere do we find Angel DNA, or reptilian DNA, or Giant DNA, or the barest speck of Alien/God DNA.
