New ancestor? Scientists ponder DNA from Siberia
Associated Press ^ | Mar 24, 2010 | MALCOLM RITTER

NEW YORK – In the latest use of DNA to investigate the story of humankind, scientists have decoded genetic material from an unidentified human ancestor that lived in Siberia and concluded it might be a new member of the human family tree.

The DNA doesn't match modern humans or Neanderthals, two species that lived in that area around the same time — 30,000 to 50,000 years ago.

But "the human family tree has got a lot of branchings. It's entirely plausible there are a lot of branches out there we don't know about."

Here we go again. I expect in 6 months it will turn into a monkey again.

But all humans descended from monkeys, of that there is absolutley no doubt. The science is settled.

I await flaming by some of my fellow Freepers.

I’ve no doubt YOUR ancestors were monkeys...

Are you saying he’s of equine origin?

Thanks decimon, colorado tanker, and Fractal Trader.

I'm just glad this finger bone wasn't found stuck in a fossil nose, or fossil butt. I'd hate to think the Democrats originated that far back.
The Neandertal Enigma
by James Shreeve

in local libraries
Frayer's own reading of the record reveals a number of overlooked traits that clearly and specifically link the Neandertals to the Cro-Magnons. One such trait is the shape of the opening of the nerve canal in the lower jaw, a spot where dentists often give a pain-blocking injection. In many Neandertal, the upper portion of the opening is covered by a broad bony ridge, a curious feature also carried by a significant number of Cro-Magnons. But none of the alleged 'ancestors of us all' fossils from Africa have it, and it is extremely rare in modern people outside Europe." [pp 126-127]

No big flame here, pal, just a flickering candle-light from science. ;-)

According to fossil evidence and DNA studies:

So, science tells us that human ancestors go back a very long ways indeed, and include any number of, shall we say, attractive critters. ;-)

All bones aside, why doesn’t man act like all of the other dominate animals? I have been thinking about this for the last 50 years or so. I don’t care if I am a Monkey why don’t I act like one?

In traditional American families, the dad is the breadwinner. And I’ll leave the rest of that diatribe for another time and place...

I hope it is in opposition to the Out of Africa theory.

“...why don’t I act like one?”

Who says you don’t? Go watch a bunch of high school kids at lunch or just hanging out. You can see the resemblance.

Children act as they are allowed to act, the two of yours that I met would have lost their scalps if they crossed the line? The thing that bothers me is human kids require 13 years to develop into PIAes, in all of human history we have imposed very strict limits on their behavior, as in take swing at the Old Man or Lady a short walk to long drop.

This type of control is exhibited in no other animal nor is the time reach maturity.

Rack time.
