    The latest gossip says the Neanderthals, the other human species kicking around about 30,000 years ago, did not leave this earth without spreading a few wild oats among our Cro-Magnon ancestors (nudge nudge, wink wink). And genetics, as so many daytime talkshow guests can tell you, is where such secrets go to die. Everyone except Africans (who missed the shackin’ up party that was prehistoric Europe) now has a sort of genetic souvenir, a remnant of our forebears.

    Sorry, Africa—you missed out on the interspecies breeding.

    Criticism

    A 2007 review of the data by Wall and Kim[21] reanalyses the data obtained from the published papers of Noonan et al.[11] and Green et al.,[10] and it holds that the results are inconsistent with each other. The review proposes serious problems with the data quality in one of the studies, possibly due to modern human DNA contaminants and/or a high rate of sequencing errors.
    The reanalyses confirmed both results to the Human-Neanderthal DNA Sequence Divergence Time (common ancestor), that is 706 kya (thousands of years ago) to the Noonan et al. analysis and 516 kya to the Green et al. analysis. The modern European-Neanderthal population split time was estimated at 35 kya for the Green et al. data, and 325 kya for the Noonan et al. data. Before, no split time was estimated by the Green et al. study, and according to Wall and Kim the split time originally estimated by Noonan et al. was even higher: 440 kya (the Noonan et al. paper mentions 370 kya).[10]

    I see no problem here since it is obvious they are talking about them, not us.

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,

    .......To a degree, I agree.
