There is no evidence that we are not descended from African H. idaltu or a closely-related African lineage. The percentage of our H. neanderthalensis genes is small.
Go get an education.
No civilization ever collapsed because the poor had too much to eat.
You gotta understand why Mikey resists this information. According to many people who hold his views, 1 drop of African blood makes you black. Meaning if we're all descended from African hominids, that means...according to racists twisted logic...we're ALL black.
Obviously he's going to cling to and misapply this otherwise interesting piece of archeological evidence as PROOF Northern European's (white people), have no genetic connection to Africa.
It would be funny if it wasn't so sad.
Hey, Mikey! You'll like it! Turn that frown upside down cuz we're all brothas, dig!
Be kind to your enemies. It confuses them.

It's "Out-of Africa" theory for which there is no evidence.ABSTRACT
Seven thousand five hundred fifty-six (7556) haplotypes of 46 subclades in 17 major haplogroups were considered in terms of their base (ancestral) haplotypes and timespans to their common ancestors, for the purposes of designing of time-balanced haplogroup tree. It was found that African haplogroup A (originated 132,000 ± 12,000 years before present) is very remote time-wise from all other haplogroups, which have a separate common ancestor, named β-haplogroup, and originated 64,000 ± 6000 ybp. It includes a family of Europeoid (Caucasoid) haplogroups from F through T that originated 58,000 ± 5000 ybp. A downstream common ancestor for haplogroup A and β-haplogroup, coined the α-haplogroup emerged 160,000 ± 12,000 ybp. A territorial origin of haplogroups α- and β-remains unknown; however, the most likely origin for each of them is a vast triangle stretched from Central Europe in the west through the Russian Plain to the east and to Levant to the south. Haplogroup B is descended from β-haplogroup (and not from haplogroup A, from which it is very distant, and separated by as much as 123,000 years of “lat- eral” mutational evolution) likely migrated to Africa after 46,000 ybp. The finding that the Europeoid haplogroups did not descend from “African” haplogroups A or B is supported by the fact that bearers of the Europeoid haplogroups, as well as all non-African haplogroups do not carry either SNPs M91, P97, M31, P82, M23, M114, P262, M32, M59, P289, P291, P102, M13, M171, M118 (haplogroup A and its subclades SNPs) or M60, M181, P90 (haplogroup B), as it was shown recently in “Walk through Y” FTDNA Project (the reference is incorporated therein) on several hundred people from various haplogroups.
Read it and weep.
Of course there is a genetic connection to Africa.
There is a genetic connection to primeval slime at the bottom of a pond 3 billion years ago when continents as we know them didn't even exist.
We are all descended from Africans, Europeans, Chinese, Monkeys, Amoeba etc.
What's your point?
The genomes of most modern humans are 1–4% Neanderthal — a result of interbreeding with the close relatives that went extinct 30,000 years ago, according to work by an international group of researchers. This suggests that Neanderthals bred outside Africa with Homo sapiens, who migrated out of that region about 100,000 years ago. On the basis of the fossil record of human migrations, the team proposes that this took place in the eastern Mediterranean. Therefore, they say, modern humans from Europe and Asia are closer genetically to Neanderthals than are those from sub-Saharan Africa. This agrees with the findings of a separate study presented at a conference last month. That study examined 2,000 modern human genomes that showed two interbreedings with Neanderthals: the first about 60,000 years ago, also in the eastern Mediterranean, and then again about 45,000 years ago in eastern Asia.
I'm beginning to think that you don't find happiness from living your life looking ahead or back..that you find it when you look around. http://www.politicalforum.com/groups/taylor-swift-13/
The evidence seems to suggest modern humans are derived from heidelbergensis flow into Africa.
