It looks like our ancestors weren’t so “diverse” after all. In fact homogeneity appears to have been a key in raising the human intellect to new heights.
An article in the U. K. Daily Telegraph reports: “Cambridge University researchers concluded that DNA similarities were unlikely to be the result of human-Neanderthal sex during their 15,000-year coexistence in Europe.”
“People living outside Africa share as much as four per cent of their DNA with Neanderthals, a cave-dwelling species with muscular short arms and legs and a brain slightly larger than ours.”
“The Cambridge researchers examined demographic patterns suggesting that humans were far from intimate with the species they displaced in Europe almost 40,000 years ago. The study into the genomes of the two species, found a common ancestor 500,000 years ago would be enough to account for the shared DNA.”
This also means that people of European ancestry split off and evolved separately from Africans for at least 500,000 years. So much for that one big happy family propaganda. The separation between different ape species and man can be counted in millions of years, and now we find Whites and Blacks are separated by at least half a million years.
The article notes “Their analysis, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), contradicts recent studies that found inter-species mating, known as hybridisation, probably occurred.”
We have been besieged with propaganda from the Left on anthropology for decades. It all started with the prolific liar, Ashley Montague, who went so far as to claim that races don’t exist. Instead of being dismissed as a village idiot, he was promoted up by Jews and Marxists within the academic world and hailed as some great visionary instead of a Marxist propagandist, which is what he really was.
Liberal academics want people to believe that the races of mankind evolved only in a very short period of time –too short for different intelligence and different behavior to evolve, immediately after leaving Africa. What they don’t tell you is that orangutans split off from the other great apes 21 million years ago, and they wound up in Borneo and Sumatra, which would be a straight line distance (over mostly ocean) of almost 5,000 miles or a migration over land of almost 10,000 miles.
The human evolutionary branch split off from our closest relatives, the chimpanzees about 12 million years ago. The latest claim by modern anthropologists is that one species might mix with a more primitive species so that evolution does not progress smoothly, but suffers setbacks.
Well, what if White people and Asians left Africa. There are no chimpanzees in Europe or Asia so these two branches of humanity would not have been able to cross-breed with the chimpanzee line, slowing the process of evolution. The ancestors of the Blacks, however, lived in Africa with the chimpanzees and might have cross-bred with them slowing down the evolutionary process for Blacks.
The more challenging seasonal environments in Europe and northern Asia also pushed human evolution to plan ahead, farm, store food, build warmer houses and make warmer clothes. Equatorial races had less pressure to evolve since they could walk around with the barest of clothes and eat fruit that grows in the jungle all year round.
The only other species that Europeans might have interbred with are the Neanderthals, but the article notes “Dr Andrea Manica, who led the study, said: “…Our work shows clearly the patterns currently seen in the Neanderthal genome are not exceptional, and are in line with our expectations of what we would see without hybridisation. So, if any hybridisation happened then it would have been minimal and much less than what people are claiming now.”
“Evidence has shown that Neanderthals were driven into extinction by humans who were more efficient at finding food and multiplied at a faster rate. A previous study in 2010 suggested that interspecies liaisons near the Middle East resulted in Neanderthal genes first entering humans 70,000 years ago.”
The Neanderthals lacked the creative intelligence to make bows and arrows or fire. While they may have had larger brains, their brains may have been more devoted to memory (in the same way elephants remember sources for water and food) rather than creativity and analytical power.
