MONTI LESSINI, ITALYSilvana Condemi of the University of Ai-Marseille and her colleagues claim that a jaw from the Riparo di Mezzena rock shelter in northern Italy is from the first-known Neanderthal/modern human hybrid. From the morphology of the lower jaw, the face of the Mezzena individual would have looked somehow intermediate between classic Neanderthals, who had a rather receding lower jaw (no chin), and the modern humans, who present a projecting lower jaw with a strongly developed chin, she said. Genetic analysis of the bone shows that the individuals mitochondrial DNA was Neanderthal, indicating a Neanderthal mother. The team speculates that the individuals father may have been an invading modern-human male that lived between 40,000 and 30,000 years ago.

Like Hillary said.”What difference does it make”?.
So how come they say that the mother was Neanderthal form DNA but they don’t have a DNA clue on the father? Take the Y-DNA and get a clue. King Tut came up with a HG R1B which is eastern European, he could have been Irish. There is something fishy with this jaw or they would have said something about the male DNA,
My! Those two were spectacularly unblessed!
If Obama had white sons.
Why are Neanderthals not considered “human”?
I see Freepers still have the best senses of humor.
AFS. Alcohol fetal syndrome means that their mother drank heavily when she carried them.
Also guessing that they only had one set of grandparents.
Racism. Glowbull Warming. Bush. ;^)
LAZ you dog!
