    Neanderthals Died Out Earlier Than Thought

    [​IMG]
    The last Neanderthals had passed by southern Iberia quite earlier than previously thought, approximately 45,000 years ago and not 30,000 years ago as it has been estimated until recently. The new finding casts doubt on the theory that modern hu

    Neanderthals may have died out earlier than before thought, researchers say.
    These findings hint that Neanderthals did not coexist with modern humans as long as previously suggested, investigators added.
    Modern humans once shared the planet with now-departed human lineages, including the Neanderthals, our closest known extinct relatives. However, there has been heated debate over just how much time and interaction, or interbreeding, Neanderthals had with modern humans.

    It's called "Damage Control".

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,



    ... Here's more damage control:



    Neanderthals, humans didn't make whoopee, study says

    Primitive Homo sapiens and Neanderthals didn't produce children together despite swaths of shared DNA, some scientists say, casting doubt in a new study on a contentious idea about the origin of modern humans.
    Anthropologists who found that humans with non-African lineage shared up to four per cent of their DNA with the long-extinct Neanderthals concluded in 2010 that the link was likely due to hybridization — or sex between the two hominid species.
    But researchers at the University of Cambridge said this week that computer models simulating the last 500,000 years of population migration offered a different interpretation of how we came to share DNA with our ancient cousins.

    It's funny you say that, because that's a little female Neanderthal in that picture at the top.

    Take your argument to these people:

    The paper supporting interbreeding is scheduled for publication in the journal PLoS Genetics, while the University of Cambridge study is published in the latest edition of the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.
