    [It all boils down to that pubescent male from Uganda, Ethiopia, the Congo, Liberia etc alone in the jungle, except for the monkeys,......the female monkeys.
    When you embed sonotubes in the ground, round cardboard forms which you fill with concrete to act as underpinnings, or foundations, for outdoor structures and come back later, say a month or more, with the concrete, you learn to expect to find them filled with garbage, even if you leave empty garbage pails on site expressly for that purpose. Males, for some strange reason, instinctively want to fill every hole they come across.
    How do you think the ebola virus makes the occasional jump from the simian to the human population?]

    "The human family tree just got another — mysterious — branch, an African "sister species" to the heavy-browed Neanderthals that once roamed Europe.

    While no fossilized bones have been found from these enigmatic people, they did leave a calling card in present-day Africans: snippets of foreign DNA.

    There's only one way that genetic material could have made it into modern human populations.

    "Geneticists like euphemisms, but we're talking about sex," said Joshua Akey of the University of Washington, whose lab identified the foreign DNA in three groups of modern Africans.

    These genetic leftovers do not resemble DNA from any modern humans. The foreign DNA also does not resemble Neanderthal DNA, which shows up in the DNA of some modern Europeans, Akey said. That means the newly identified DNA came from an unknown group.

    "We're calling this a Neanderthal sibling species in Africa," Akey said. He added that the interbreeding likely occurred 20,000 to 50,000 years ago, long after some modern humans had walked out of Africa to colonize Asia and Europe, and about the same time Neanderthals were waning in Europe.

    Akey said that present-day Europeans show no evidence of the foreign DNA, meaning the mystery people were likely confined to Africa."

    Yep,

    You can see the difference between human beings that went out on the second wave(150k-60k) and the ones that stayed in Africa. Had a chance to mate with another sub-group. May not of been to their benefit, sadly. Really, who's to say that every branch of evolution is upwards?

    Australopithecus Africanis, Homo Erectus, Neanderthal, Peking Man, Java, etc, etc...

    I seem to remember the botany professor, you'll have to excuse me but it was 43 years ago, remarking that there was one particular species of plant in existence then which had an exact double of the set of chromosomes of another species of plant also in existence. Apparently something went wrong once during Mitosis and the offspring ended up with a double set of chromosomes instead of the normal single set which just happened to work in the environment. This happened well before Marie Curie discovered radiation or the events that took place at White Sands, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, or Eniwetok. Musta been that super nova on the other side of the galaxy ten million or so years ago that was responsible.
    If you're a flightless bird who wasn't able to outrun the new arrivals to the place you've called home for a couple million years and your meat also happens to be quite desirable to the newcomers, your days are liable to be numbered instead.
    Man was a relative late arrival to the North American continent despite the appearance of the Siberian Land Bridge a number of times before. Some anthropologists have posited that the presence of a relatively large, aggressive, carnivorous bear on the North American Continent might have had something to do with their late arrival. The bear seems to have disappeared from the fossil record at roughly the same time Man arrived on the continent, which was also just in time to watch the mammoth and the horse disappear.

    I love when racists talk about science.

    :lol:

    Don't get me wrong...boys..I don't necessarily dislike racists..just racism.
