… the creationists are probably right, no? Like, it was guided and can happen fast.
From a recent article in New Scientist:
Humanity’s dramatic race across the Old World after it left its African cradle has been told countless times. But for a true sense of the rapidity of events, look no further than the Y chromosome. The most comprehensive analysis of the Y yet shows that within 150 years, an evolutionary blink of an eye, the first migrants to make it into Eurasia split into three distinct groups that can still be identified today.
Three distinct groups in only four, possibly five, generations?
Maybe too much money and prestige is tied up in not just admitting that the creationists were right? But then how many more mistakes do researchers have to make in order to placate the Darwin lobby? The cost of defending Darwin and his followers gets higher all the time, in time and personnel.
Also, from the same article:
The first Eurasians were significant for another reason: their pioneering exploration brought them into contact with Neanderthals for the first time. Studies within the last few years have shown that interbreeding did occur between the two species, although there is no evidence a Y chromosome from a male Neanderthal passed into the Homo sapiens gene pool.
Or rather, there is no evidence so far.
Mmmm. Anyone get the memo about Neanderthal art?
