sorry,didn't make myself clear.i really enjoyed reading his examples,many of them.but i just disagree on how it occured. perhaps he doesn't want to touch that specific quagmire?

Okay. But I do wonder. Why is it so much more comfortable for so many to consider alien or other intervention than 'random' selection?

...Not that I reject that hypothesis out of hand either. Just curious.

Thinking Bladerunner the Movie based on Philip K Dick SCIFI BOOK Do Android Dream of Sheep.

Tyrell the Creator Talking to his Creation ..



Tyrell: [Tyrell explains to Roy why he can't extend his lifespan] The facts of life... to make an alteration in the evolvement of an organic life system is fatal. A coding sequence cannot be revised once it's been established.
Batty: Why not?
Tyrell: Because by the second day of incubation, any cells that have undergone reversion mutation give rise to revertant colonies, like rats leaving a sinking ship; then the ship... sinks.
Batty: What about EMS-3 recombination?
Tyrell: We've already tried it - ethyl, methane, sulfinate as an alkylating agent and potent mutagen; it created a virus so lethal the subject was dead before it even left the table.
Batty: Then a repressor protein, that would block the operating cells.
Tyrell: Wouldn't obstruct replication; but it does give rise to an error in replication, so that the newly formed DNA strand carries with it a mutation - and you've got a virus again... but this, all of this is academic. You were made as well as we could make you.
Batty: But not to last.
Tyrell: The light that burns twice as bright burns half as long - and you have burned so very, very brightly, Roy. Look at you: you're the Prodigal Son; you're quite a prize!
Batty: I've done... questionable things.
Tyrell: Also extraordinary things; revel in your time.
Batty: Nothing the God of biomechanics wouldn't let you into heaven for.

Believe? As in "believe in Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny"? Erm. ...As stated earlier, I consider the hypothesis to be reasonable. I also agree with McCarthy's own statements:

For my own part, curiosity has carried me away from my old idea of reality. I no longer know what to believe. Is it possible that so many biologists might be wrong about the nature of human origins? Is it possible for a pig to hybridize with a chimpanzee? I have no way of knowing at present, but I have no logical or evidential basis for rejecting the idea. Before dismissing such a notion, I would want to be sure on some logical, evidentiary basis that I actually should dismiss it. The ramifications of any misconception on this point seem immense. As Huxley put it long ago, "The question of questions for mankind — the problem which underlies all others, and is more deeply interesting than any other —is the ascertainment of the place which Man occupies in nature."


McCarthy is a respected geneticist who has focused on hybrids. Here is a snippet of his bio.

Handbook of Avian Hybrids of the World
Eugene M. McCarthy
OUP USA
598 pages | 16 maps, 4 line drawings | 234x156mm
978-0-19-518323-8 | Hardback | 30 March 2006
Price: £81.00

With more than 5,000 works cited, Handbook of Avian Hybrids of the World is the greatest compendium of information ever published on hybridization in birds. Worldwide in scope, it provides information on all reported avian crosses, not only those occurring in captivity, but also in a natural setting (approximately 4,000 crosses are covered). This book is a basic reference, intended both for the serious birder and the professional biologist. McCarthy's work fills a need for reference material that takes into account the last half century of data. It will be of interest to workers in a wide variety of fields, ranging from animal behavior to genetics, ecology, zoology, and systematics. In fact, it will make fascinating reading for anyone interested in birds and the natural world.


McCarthy in Nature:

A theoretical assessment of recombinational speciation


McCarthy's new theory, in book form:

On the Origins of New Forms of Life: A New Theory


A review of the book and theory:

McCarthy masterfully develops an extended argument for a paradigm shift in evolutionary biology from the traditional view that each new species arises gradually from a single ancestral form, to the novel suggestion that each new life form originates suddenly when its recombinant karyotype becomes genetically stabilized following a hybridization event between two distinct ancestors. This bold hypothesis the stuff of which Kuhnian revolutions potentially emerge is presented with eloquence, extensive scholarship, and verve. Importantly, the hypothesis entails empirically testable genetic mechanisms and evolutionary predictions, and thus may stimulate a sweeping research agenda."

Science just copies what happens in nature - especially bio- and nano-technology. So a "higher race of beings" could have done it, but it also could have happened naturally.

I suggest you read some of the background materials. Lots of links provided. The hypothesis is anything but absurd, although it is revolutionary.

This story makes the one where Earth is a prison planet for devolved beings, who can't behave properly, from a distant alien race that can exist in all 12 dimensions, look like a gem.

Agreed, a wild boar would most certainly eat a chimp, not try and mate with it!

I'm skeptical of Dr. McCarthy's claims. He lined up DNA looking for similarities and found many with pigs, which are obviously mammals. The multilobar kidneys are common to humans, pigs and most large ruminant animals so based on that we could just as easily have been hybridized from cows or other ruminants like the Sable Antelope, which has 46 chromosomes- much closer to humans and chimps than the 36 chromosomes of the wild pigs.

It should be pointed out that genome construction was recently called into question. This article explains that assembling programs do not come up with consistent results when used by different groups, meaning each resulting genome is different.
Just because animals with widely varying chromosome counts, like zebras and donkeys, can mate doesn't mean that chimps and pigs can.

RE: Reproductive biology. Apparently, you haven't been keeping up and consequently, as your avatar states, "Your mind is firmly closed."

I have more regard for a proven professional well-published geneticist who specializes in hybrids and hybridization than in any unnamed unqualified uncredited troll. Not to be disrespectful.

In fact, females offering sexual favours to male predators is a recognized survival tactic. Cross-species hybridization in the wild occurs with some regularity. The progeny commonly are NOT sterile but do tend to have reduced reproductive abilities. ...Read the references!

Can you link to the papers in the high impact factor journals that the "well published" geneticist has published in? Or perhaps the genetic evidence supporting his claims? Rhinoceros posted up the human and pig genomes a few pages back, perhaps with your expertise you can highlight the similarities that would slam dunk the case.
