Scientists say new human relative roamed widely in Asia

NEW YORK — Scientists have recovered the DNA code of a human relative recently discovered in Siberia, and it delivered a surprise: This relative roamed far from the cave that holds its only known remains.

By comparing the DNA to that of modern populations, scientists found evidence that these "Denisovans" from more than 30,000 years ago ranged all across Asia. They apparently interbred with the ancestors of people now living in Melanesia, a group of islands northeast of Australia.

Apart from the genome, the researchers reported finding a Denisovan upper molar in the cave. Its large size and features differ from teeth of Neanderthals or early modern humans, both of which lived in the same area at about the same time as the Denisovans.

Men are dogs. Proto-men were dogs. I say that as a man. We’re dogs.

None of those things (hominids) are related to us in any way other possibly than for similar design. Neanderthal DNA is generally described as about halfway between ours and that of a chimpanzee. Hominids were advanced apes.

You just described about half the people I know.

More “science” from the scientists who brought us the global warming hoax and a myriad of other hoaxes. I don’t believe any of it and especially anything from the liberal mainstream media.

I wonder if someday scientists will dig up Obama and see that he spent hos Christmas vacation at our expense in Hawaii.

They may even speculate on where the Hybrid was born.

That is why I don't believe in science. Most of it is explained by scientists and teachers unions. There is no such thing as science. It is not even a word. I am a total denier of science. Science does not exist.

There are some who don’t agree on the interbreeding thing.

There are some who don’t agree on the interbreeding thing.Scientists or theologians? I'm aware that many people don't believe in the theory of evolution, and that some of them even have their own scientific theories in opposition to them.

Aside from that, among scientists who support the theory of evolution, are the views in this article disputed. I hadn't heard that.

Thankfully women seem to be very fond of dogs. And pigs. ;^)

What they are not so keen on is competition. Thus no Neanderthals and no Denisovans.
