Bad Science Alert!

Once again, the main stream media latches onto a new analysis of Neanderthal genetic mapping to run amok on the idea that Neanderthals were a bunch of evil inbreds.

http://www.business-standard.com/article/pti-...

Why can't they focus on the important findings about the real blending between Sapiens, Neanderthals, Denisovans and another yet undefined branch of the evolutionary tree which may have been Homo Erectus?...All of which clearly shows that modern humans were casually cross-breeding with their closely related evolutionary groups just as much as they were with their own families.

Tribal life was limited in one's breeding choices. You only have to check the DNA of the pharaohs to see that inbreeding is as common in Homo Sapiens as it was in any other branch of the human family tree.

The message here is about possessions and entitlement. It's prudent to never get your science from a business publication! Don't let those who can't cope with the real purpose of such abstractions pervert the insights gained through science.

This has been a public service announcement for the betterment of forum discussion away from dingaling theories on the "ownership" of language, government entitlements and/or academic authority.

Thank you for your time!

Sadly in all the ancient text it is written how we came to be. But like most foolish people we have been lead astray and made to think that when paper was not available we had writers all around the world solely writing fiction. These people wrote what they saw. What they experienced and what they thought was of importance. The link for even the most naive is obvious. Writings from 3-5 thousand years ago are consistent all around the world. How was this possible? No internet or radio or TV. But yet many stories and architecture very much alike even in dimensions. Coincidence? I think not.

Foolish people led astray by what? Creationist sites and Ancient Aliens reruns?
Ancient writings from around the world were not "consistent" and architecture from around the world was not uniform.

You should take your perverted mind and antics to some other forum or maybe try a 1-800 number. I would suggest 1-800-dumb@ss for you.

I see that you >completely< missed the point once you saw the words masturbate and ejaculate.
I'm underwhelmed by your intellectual prowess.

Oh, right.. I almost missed it.. thanx.

Happy Yule! A bit warm for it but I'll have to burn a log in the fireplace tonight. Honoring Odin, the Disir and the ancestors and all that... Good for the soul.

But in order to pass on ownership after death it's put in a will. Since "England has ownership" there should be MILLIONS of these to be found.
All you need to do is present one.
English originated in England, that is why the people are called the English, no people other than the people of England are called that.

How anyone can take creationism serious is beyond my imagination.
If people really believe that humans and dinosaurs co-existed, they might have to see a shrink , seriously.
in the words of lewis black : "these people watch the flintstones, as if it were a documentary" hahaha

We certainly do co-exist to this day with dinosaurs. Birds are dinosaurs. Granted, they are one branch of the theropoda clade but it is what it is.

High comedy !!!!
I'd say that the differences between Neanderthals and Sapiens were small enough that they weren't too fussy. The reality is that you'll need to go back to early examples of Sapien to find the cross breeding, as you'd likely have to do to observe cross-breeding between Denisovans and Homo Erectus. It's not like they were carrying around membership cards or using a secret hand shake to know who was who.
