Sex With Neanderthals



Science Daily: Evidence of Interbreeding With Modern Humans.

Among the findings, published in the May 7 issue of Science, is evidence that shortly after early modern humans migrated out of Africa, some of them interbred with Neanderthals, leaving bits of Neanderthal DNA sequences scattered through the genomes of present-day non-Africans.

"We can now say that, in all probability, there was gene flow from Neanderthals to modern humans," said the paper's first author, Richard E. (Ed) Green of the University of California, Santa Cruz.

They "know" it comes from comets! The Sun is the largest manufactory of elements, locally.

You would think that Neanderthals would be hotter than Homo Sapiens women too, or else why bother. Sort of like French women.
