    That's some amazing stuff. I can't believe we've gotten to that level of understanding in the field of genetics. It seems like serious genetic research just started a few years ago but I guess it's been around for a long time now.

    Neanderthal Genome Data Sheds Light on Human Ancestors
    March 21, 2013 - Scientists at Germany's Max Planck Institute have released a final version of a high-quality sequencing of a Neanderthal genome, which could shed light on why humans survived and earlier hominid species did not.

    The 6000 year old earther's will just claim the measuring process is flawed.

    Pure clap-trap. Natural evolution is dead.

    From now on, human evolution will be artificially engineered.

    We will have travelled far down the road to becoming cyborgs in decades, not in millennia !!

    Not too flattering to have the same DNA as "humans who have not evolved". I've been called a neanderthal. Maybe that's a compliment.

    Unique Skull Find Rebuts Theories On Species Diversity in Early Humans
    Oct. 17, 2013 — This is the best-preserved fossil find yet from the early era of our genus. The particularly interesting aspect is that it displays a combination of features that were unknown to us before the find. The skull, found in Dmanisi by anthropologists from the University of Zurich as part of a collaboration with colleagues in Georgia funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation, has the largest face, the most massively built jaw and teeth and the smallest brain within the Dmanisi group.
