Aaand that idiocy tells me beyond all doubt that you have not the vaguest friggin' clue how science works.
You're kinda weak in English, too.

Well, you're apparently incapable of looking up the (well-known and verified) genetic research for yourself.

Or are you simply afraid to learn? I've seen that before.

Here's a starting point, if you have the gonads. It's written in pretty much baby talk, so you might be able to follow it:

Science is held by its laws. I didn't make that rule science did. You're so confused. Poor igor
Oh yes igor is short for ignorance seems fitting.
You're still committing the logical fallacy of special pleading.
You're still claiming a God can just exist without explanation but a universe can't. That's cheating!

If a God can just exist outside of time without cause then so can some quirk of physics that starts a chain reaction that causes time and this universe.

A God is not nothing, he's a something and yes he does need explaining.

ummmm...the fact that humans carry Neandertal DNA would be proof.

Would that include the scientists that created the computer and the internet? You know the things you are using to spew your ignorance? You sound severely religitarded.

Why does God tell people to do things that get them sent to jail? The cops must all be atheists for arresting good Christians.

See, you said it yourself...."We already know that humans..etc etc etc"

So, have you ever stopped and pondered on the significance of this fact??

The fact that we mated and produced fertile offspring with them means we are related, and it means we have a common ancestor who is even further back on the evolutionary ladder. It means that we are relatives of apes....we DID evolve from apes, we were NOT created by some imaginary floaty sky thingy that our dumb-ass Jewish cousins INVENTED 3500 years ago

But if overtime we all evolved from one organism to another, to another so on and so on. And we all share common ancestors. Would we not be connected and share genetics with everything?

Yes, good point. And we do. We even share genetics with yeast. I do not remember the percentage off of the top of my head. But the closer a specie is to us the more genetics that we share with it. We have the highest number of shared genes with chimps and bonobos. Next are gorillas and a bit less with orangutans. Even less with other simians, less yet with other mammals, and less and less all the way back to bacteria.

Then what is the big deal of sharing genes with Neanderthals. Whether they mated with humans or not we would still share genes with them.
