At last, a scientific explanation for the existence of Creationists, Tea Baggers and Rush Limbaugh!
“Many modern-day humans may be carrying around a fragment of Neanderthal DNA on one of their sex chromosomes, a new study finds.”
The funniest part is that Neanderthal blood apparently isn't in Africans. I'm sure that will irk the northern Idaho types... Kinda screws their whole racial superiority thing.
“The research adds a piece of corroborating evidence to the theory that Neanderthals and humans interbred sometime after humans migrated out of Africa between 50,000 and 80,000 years ago.”
