Ancient Humans Had Sex With A Mystery Species
Dec. 4, 2013, 3:33 PM
A new, improved sequencing of ancient human relative genomes reveals that Homo sapiens didn't only have sex with Neanderthals and a little-understood line of humans called Denisovans. A fourth, mystery lineage of humans was in the mix, too.
As reported by the news arm of the journal Nature, new genetic evidence suggests that several hominids human relatives closer than humans' current living cousin, the chimpanzee interbred more than 30,000 years ago. This group of kissing cousins included an unknown human ancestor not yet revealed by the ancient DNA record.
"It's implied it could be something like Homo erectus or similar," said Carles Lalueza-Fox, a paleogenomics researcher at Pompeu Fabra University in Spain, who was not involved in the research, but who was present at a talk on the findings given by lead author David Reich of Harvard Medical School at a meeting on ancient DNA sponsored by the Royal Society in London on Nov. 18. Homo erectus is an extinct species of human that originated in Africa and spread into Asia. [See Images of Our Closest Human Ancestor]
Ancient human lineages
Neanderthals are an extinct group of humans who lived between about 30,000 and 130,000 years ago. Despite their reputation as bone-headed dummies, Neanderthals were likely as advanced as modern humans in areas such as tool-making, though they were probably less socially adept.
Denisovans are a far more mysterious group. These early humans lived in Siberia and probably split off from the branch of the human family tree that would eventually give rise to Neanderthals about 300,000 years ago. Little is known about how Denisovans lived and what they looked like.

Apparently even the cavemen liked “good ss”.
yes ... is the truth ... fallen angels.
The Sons of God were not angelic beings. (It looks like you are suggesting this. I know others have.) Gods makes it clear in Genesis that the kinds reproduce after their own kind. (Genesis 1:21,24,25). Men and women reproduce within their own kind. Angels do not marry and do not reproduce.
"Sons of God" are men who believe on The Lord (see John 1:12). The "daughters of men" are the unsaved females of the unbelieving tribes/groups. God warns us not to be unequally yoked. He told the children of Israel not to interbreed with the occupants of the promised land. And he repeats this in the NT when he commands us not to be "unequally yoked."
“human relatives closer than humans’ current living cousin, the chimpanzee”
So why isn’t there any interbreeding between cousins? lol
Afraid of catching AIDs again? lol
It’s the only logical choice.
Well perhaps in this case...not so mysterious...but rather obvious!
“...did not keep to themselves as they ought, but intermingled with the race of Cain: they took them wives of all that they chose - They chose only by the eye: They saw that they were fair - Which was all they looked at.”
So even the ancient sons of God wanted eye candy.
Proves that they were pretty much like modern men, eh?
I clicked on this thread just to read the comments. And, got my fill of laughs for the day.
Surprised though, that nobody put up pictures of Hillary Clinton or Rosie O’Donnell as being from this other species..............
The Hebrew words for the “sons of God” were the same ones used in the book of Job for ‘sons of God” in describing their gathering with God when Satan came to accuse Job and when they “shouted” for joy when God brought creation into being! The Genesis 6 “sons of God” were fallen angels with great power, already dealing with a race of fallen man out of fellowship with God! A human line of “sons of God” would not have created Nephilum genetic giant hybrids...the bones of which are still found. We were spiritually tempted and failed in the garden, then our genetics were demonically interfered with.
But God would send his Son to save those living and those held captive in Hell who would be saved and accept his kingship! Thus Noah was preserved!
Ancient Humans apparently mated with... Everything.
Glad we got that out of our system.
Yes... Yes I would...
This sort of visual abuse should be outlawed.
In my college days I think I may have too.
Mrs. Reid and Mr. Pelosi?
Nice, buy Yyvonne looked MUCH better in the Batgirl costume.
