Posted on 07/25/2017 8:05:26 AM PDT by C19fan
Previous studies have concluded that the forebears of modern humans in Asia and Europe interbred with other early hominin species, including Neanderthals and Denisovans.
The new research is among more recent genetic analyses indicating that ancient Africans also had trysts with other early hominins.

This is not science but conjecture and theory. Where is the data on the steps of the scientific method.
Interbred? How so?
If early Homo Sapiens bred with others, and they produced others, then, they were of the same “species”, meaning, they were all of the human species. Never mind calling the Neanderthals or Denisovans or Africans or whatever; they were all of the same species of animals.
If they produced fertile hybrids, they were the same species. This is just 100% humans being "interracial".
They still do!...................
She's a hottie.
That means we’re all African-Americans.
Where’s my reparations?
If these scientists desire a wild melee in which SJWs go on the attack, this sort of thing would probably set it off.
I would be for reparations if:
I didn’t think it would actually hurt blacks and,
The reparations were in the form of a divestment of federal lands.
How is this possible? I was taught that two different species, even though close enough to produce offspring, the offspring will be sterile.
Horse+donkey= sterile mule.
Cow+bison= sterile cattlow.
I have a book of MORE OR LESS, NO SWEAT cartoons from the Air force. One of them show astronauts being prepared to settle a distant planet populated by strange creatures that look half crab monster. The astronauts laugh and the officer says...”After a few years, she may start looking pretty good!”
If the two species broke off from a common ancestor relatively recently they can produce fertile offspring. Horses and donkeys separated too long ago to produce fertile offspring.
The total sum of the two sets of discoveries - interbreeding in Eurasia and now in sub-Saharan Africa, suggests that just like homosapiens, early hominids also migrated widely on earth.
Looks exactly like a modern Women’s Studies professor at Yale. :)
Hmmm. Didn't the Battlestar Galactica crew come to Earth 150,000 years ago?
