...we could be related to just about everything if we go far enough back.
No doubt. But so many insist there aren't any skeletons in our closets. ???
Thanks for yet another great thread.
think about it (something stalwart mainstream scientists will never do) for a minute or three- is there life throughout the universe? of course there is. Are there older more advanced civilizations out there? why not? Is it reasonable to believe one of them decided to continue their dna lineages by seeding the Earth? We talk about doing that all the time so why is it irrational to think someone else did?
which I believe is what you were trying to link to earlier, Sheldrake himself offers no actual evidence or data to back up his assertions. It's an interesting concept but has nothing to support it. If that changes feel free to send me an update to new info he's presenting if he can verify or support any of his claims.
People with Down's Syndrome have shorter legs," ... "Separated big toes" ... "Like monkeys"
The mystery continues. I've always said that the human family tree actually resembles a gnarled angry bush. So, we have this 'Missing link' I wonder what this will look like and where did they splice into the line?
whether those civilizations or life forms have the propensity for interstellar travel is a whole separate conversation though and the evidence for such interstellar travel is an entirely separate one at that. Is what you postulate POSSIBLE? certainly. is there any more evidence for this than there is for Sheldrake's "Morphic Resonance" hypothesis? I haven't seen it.
It's an interesting concept but has nothing to support it.
...yet it still exists.
Not saying there aren't normal scientists who are honest with integrity, no doubt and I respect them very much. But the ones like the ones I mentioned earlier- DeGrassetyson, Hawking, Kaku (to a point), Sagan, Bill Nye (now THAT guy is also a tool) are using media and history books to hamstring the truth about what is only a fraction of an inch away from our grasp (and they've been doing it for the last hundred years or so because Tesla was really onto something but he was silenced). The people who own the media reward those who tow the line and punish those who step over it and they will go out of their way to destroy you if you dare as much levitate with anti gravity over that line. They don't like the idea that we can change the status quo basically over night by putting all our efforts into exploiting these new ways of understanding our world or more scientifically, "detecting" our world. So don't try to imply that all is rosey and all those struggling nerds with telescopes are protesting on the steps of some oil cartel, no they are diligently bowing their heads and reaching for that six figure paycheck.
Pete (can I call you Pete?), are you seriously implying that even with the potential for (conservatively) thousands of advanced species to be in the Milky Way, you doubt a few would have "the propensity for interstellar travel"? Why? It took early humans two million years to change the cutting angle on a stone tool and then a couple thousand to go from building Pyramids to outer space. why is it not likely or unreasonable to think it could've been done not only before, but better by someone elsewhere?
"I haven't seen it." you can't detect these things with the detectors you are comfortable with and rely on. You have to be able to read off the page.
Sex with mystery relatives, eh. So they were like ancient southerners
The same genetic study of 2011 found evidence that Aboriginal peoples carry some of the genes associated with the Denisovan peoples of Asia; the study suggests that there is an increase in allele sharing between the Denisovans and the Aboriginal Australians genome compared to other Eurasians and Africans. The Papuans have more sharing alleles than Aboriginal peoples. The data suggests that modern and archaic humans interbred in Asia before the migration to Australi
After narrowing down the search to a short section on chromosome 17, the team looked for mutations called copy number variations, in which large chunks of DNA are repeated or removed. All of the CGHT sufferers had a copy number variation in which DNA was deleted across the same four genes, the authors report today in the American Journal of Human Genetics. None of the unaffected family members had the mutations.
Zhang speculates that the mutations change the local structure of the chromosome, interfering with the production of nearby genes. Indeed, one neighbor, SOX9, is linked to hair growth: Mice without it are known to suffer from hair loss, or alopecia. If the CGHT mutations somehow alter this region of chromosome 17 so that the SOX9 protein is overproduced in hair follicle stem cells, this would cause excessive hair growth, says Zhang. "But all this is pure speculation," he says
A region on chromosome 17 jumped out, and after further study, Zhang's team showed that family members with CGHT were missing between 500,000 and 900,000 DNA letters on that chromosome. Patient KK, on the other hand, had 1.4 million extra nucleotides at the same place on the genome.

There are probably plenty more ''mystery'' ancestors or DNA contributors to human lineage.
It is a tad annoying that media depicts science as only being that which is currently known, when in reality, known science is probably only a very small percentage of the entire reality of everything, if that.

I don't think the PTB are capable of telling the truth. We'll never know.
