    Oldest Human DNA Reveals Mysterious Branch of Humanity

    [​IMG]

    The oldest known human DNA found yet reveals human evolution was even more confusing than thought, researchers say.

    The DNA, which dates back some 400,000 years, may belong to an unknown human ancestor, say scientists. These new findings could shed light on a mysterious extinct branch of humanity known as Denisovans, who were close relatives of Neanderthals, scientists added.
    Although modern humans are the only surviving human lineage, others once strode the Earth. These included Neanderthals, the closest extinct relatives of modern humans, and the relatively newfound Denisovans, who are thought to have lived in a vast expanse from Siberia to Southeast Asia. Research shows that the Denisovans shared a common origin with Neanderthals but were genetically distinct, with both apparently descending from a common ancestral group that had diverged earlier from the forerunners of modern humans.

    Yeah, I saw that, but what is very interesting about this strain of humanoids is they existed before modern humans. Like I said modern humans only been literate for the last 4 or 5 thousand years but we have millions of years we are very ignorant about.

    My bucket list movie script will be based on when modern humans left Africa and began to migrate to the rest of the planet. Still in the vast time line it took for us to get to this point, it is a blink of an eye. To be human, aware and intelligent is an enormous gift the universe have bestowed on us. Life is so short in view of the time line we can see before us but will only get a tiny taste of it, that is not fair.

    What is it that made our strain of humanoids special to be the last standing?

    "Second, the Sima de los Huesos humans may be related to the ancestors of both Neanderthals and Denisovans. The researchers consider this plausible given the fossil's age, but they would then have to explain how two very different mitochondrial DNA lineages stemmed from one group, one leading to Denisovans, the other to Neanderthals."

    To the question you asked, according to my worldview, the Bible doesn't account for different strains of humanoids, only one.

    Yeah the great majority of my family are very religious and Christian spiritual. My brother and I use to argue a lot about religion and the Bible. I am viewed differently by my relatives because I'm agnostic. I don't knock church going people and I do respect them and I avoid debating the Bible because religious ideologues don't want to hear it and I can respect that. I get preached at by family members and I just listen and nod my head and agree where I can. But I avoid being disagreeable. I go to church when I visit home because that is where I can find most of my peeps in one spot and as always I enjoy the services and often come away with something. But buying into the mysticism that is taught in today's prosperity theology is just amusement for me.
