Napoleon was a redheaded Italian.
I always knew I was related to the Neanderthals because of my Red Gene.
Now, the BBC has proven it…
Neanderthal genes ‘survive in us’
By Paul Rincon, Science reporter, BBC News
Many people alive today possess some Neanderthal ancestry, according to a landmark scientific study.
The finding has surprised many experts, as previous genetic evidence suggested the Neanderthals made little or no contribution to our inheritance.
The result comes from analysis of the Neanderthal genome – the “instruction manual” describing how these ancient humans were put together.
Between 1% and 4% of the Eurasian human genome seems to come from Neanderthals.
I do not have red hair on my scalp, but I have very red hair on my chin. I have all the characteristics of the Red Gene including tons of freckles. And, everyone knows the Neanderthals had the Red Gene.
Until this week, Anthropologists always maintained that the Neanderthals never interbred with other humans. Now, we know that the Neanderthals did breed with humans, and consequently, must have been human.
The definition of a specie requires that all members can interbreed.
THEORIES OF HUMAN EVOLUTION
There are two theories of human evolution.
The one theory is the lazy scientist theory, and the other the realistic scientist theory.
The lazy scientist theory is that all humans came out of Africa and spread around the world. I call this “the lazy scientist” because it is simplistic, and does not cover the facts.
The realistic scientist theory is that many groups of humans sprang up all over the planet and provided the diversity of genes that we see today.
UNICENTRIC AND MULTICENTRIC
In the science of cancer we have the competing theories of unicentric and multicentric causes of cancer. Those who believe that cancer has a unicentric cause, believe that the conditions for cancer only provide for one center of cancer to erupt.
The multicentric group believe that if the conditions are there, multiple cells can become cancerous.
The unicentric theory is lazy, the multicentric is realistic.
This type of thinking applies to any situation where there are very large numbers. When the Planet was first formed there were probably trillions of molecules which could turn into life forms. And, not one, but perhaps billions did turn into life forms and smaller numbers survived. This explains the amazing diversity of nature. The conditions for human life was there all across the globe. Humans popped up in many different places and gave us the types we see today.
In Europe and Western Asia we have evidence of the Neanderthals and their red gene. Then came the Celts with the same gene. Obviously, descendents of the Neanderthals. The gene for red hair is the MC1R gene, which the Neanderthals carried. As time progresses and we find out more about the Neanderthals we shall find that they had more than red hair.
