Parting Shots: Neanderthals had sex with humans, says DNA

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.”

You know, I make this comment on your posts a lot but it's true: Stuff like this explains a lot. And not to be too *ahem* indelicate, but come on. If humans will have sex with plastic blow-up dolls, Of COURSE they would have had sex with Neanderthals. Still, nice to have some irrefutable proof as to why everyone tends to act so much like cavemen these days.
