Neanderthal genome - our redheaded, muscle-bound siblings live on within us

Fascinating discoveries recently shed new light on the Neanderthal – researchers have sequenced the Neanderthal genome – we now know exactly what differs and what is the same between them and modern day humans. Not surprisingly, there are some major commonalities.Now we know that Humans and Neanderthals interbred to some degree. Today, there remains a part of Homo neanderthalus which lives on in Homo sapiens.

This is wonderful and exciting news for all except those who think existence is only 6k years old… and are convinced that Homo sapiens was created ‘special and different’ from all other species.

Well, hold on, Fundie-fantasy-folks, because you’re about to lose even more credibility – if that’s possible.
