Found it interesting, so want to share...

Doesn't that fly in the face of the theory that the roots of humanity originally came from the African continent? Which would mean all of us have some African ancestry.

I don't know how they can determine who does or doesn't have non-African descent.

I've believed for quite awhile that all the hominid species interbred, so finding out that some people have Neanderthal genetics isn't something by which I'm surprised.

"The ancestors of Neanderthals left Africa about 400,000 to 800,000 years ago." (per article) So yes, strictly speaking we are all from Africa in some sense.

With all this genetic research I find it to be quite interesting what they find (in general).

I have seen reports that no neandtheral {If I spelled that wrong forgive me} dna has been found in europeans.
However when humans left Africa it would make sense that they would intermingle with other human species.
This might also account for the different body types and hair colours around the world.
It is ingteresting to say the least. Shalom

It is even more interesting - and complicated - because there was a mass extinction event only 70,000 years ago, due to a massive volcanic eruption in Indonesia, and estimates are that only between 2,000 and 10,000 humans survived, with them being located in a handful of "pockets". So, we today are all descended from those very few survivors - who may or may not be genetically representative of the majority of humans that existed before. Interestingly, it is believed by some that the only surviving pockets of humans were in Africa...

I remember reading an article while back (sorry, can't give a reference as I didn't save it) that some research shows that genetically we all came from one man and one woman (talk about Adam and Eve!). I'm not sure how true it is though (if at all).

I find it interesting the new crap they invent and present as fact.
Recently a story ran of a new species of Homo, the article had a whole description of how they looked, what they ate, how they lived, yadda yadda yadda, the whole thing based on a SINGLE PINKY FINGER, yes one stupid finger a bit different and suddenly an entire culture and species was invented. All of which presented as fact. I take all of these so caled sciences with a grain of salt.

Joe, did you and Ropin actually READ the article? If not, maybe you should before you continue spouting off
