Did Humans Get Their Brains From Neanderthals?
Apparently, 70% of the world’s population has a variant of a gene regulating brain size, with this variant being most common in people of European descent (where Neanderthal man lived alongside ancient humans), and least common in people of African descent (where Neanderthal man was non-existent). While modern day eugenicists might all too eagerly read into these findings to draw their own politically biased conclusions, people such as myself, who happen to be of northern European ancestry, may find it fascinating that somewhere in our lineage ancient humans and Neanderthals decided to make love and not war on the ancient plains of Eurasia.”
Ugh! Can you imagine your ancestors making out with one of those cretons? And I suppose that would also explain my furry legs? I think I’m going to have nightmares tonight.
