Ken Ham - the Neanderthal within

Postby Brian Jordan » Mon Jun 22, 2015 5:46 pm

That's right Ken, you're probably between 1% and 3% Neanderthal
The striking discovery is the first evidence scientists have that modern humans had sex with Neanderthals in Europe. <snip> Those couplings left all non-Africans alive today with 1-3% Neanderthal DNA.
- unlike this old chap in the news who was much more closely related. The even worse news is that it's taken 50,000 years to breed you down to that low percentage.
<unsnip>Until now, the only known interbreeding was in the Middle East, or nearby, about 50,000 to 60,000 years ago.[which left the 1-3%]

So sorry to impart the bad news. Not.
