Looks like we are going to have to scratch the Denisovans off the ape-man list too. The way things are going, we might end up having to mock up those apelike ancestors using CGI.
Researchers find Philippine group to have highest known Denisovan ancestry
Don’t you just love the way the writer refers to the Denisovans as a “species” that went “extinct” (like Tyrannosaurus?) As Darwinism dies out, its usages begin to sound more and more, well, quaint.
Girl’s parents are “two different species”?
Let’s just say, paleontologists need Neanderthals and Denisovans to be “different species.”
Smithsonian Magazine on the biggest human fossil discoveries of the past decade; ENST replies
One reason it’s not been an especially “vibrant” decade is that the subhumans all turned into relatives, and reasonably smart ones at that. Paleontologists are still looking for the subhuman that would validate Darwinism.
Icelandic genome provides clues to Neanderthal history, creates puzzle
Puzzle: However, the researchers also found significant fragments of genetic material from another archaic species of human, Denisovans, in the DNA of the Icelanders, and this was something of a surprise. Up to now, Denisovan genes have primarily been found in Australian Aborigines, East Asians and people in Papua New Guinea. So how did these genes end up in Islanders’ DNA? And when?
Thousands of Denisovan tools found, also bracelets and tiaras?
From 50,000 years ago? We didn’t even know Denisovans existed before 2010.
The “mysterious” Denisovans are ScienceNews’s top 2019 story
But their significance is understated. Traditional Darwinism requires that someone be the subhuman Now that we are talking about braided streams, who exactly is the subhuman? Can we play musical chairs if there is a chair for everybody?
Denisovans sure got around; turns out, they are “diverse”
Just what the concept of “speciation” adds to the human picture is unclear. But it makes for news stories.
Cultural evolution theories “challenged” by multiple dwelling cave
This kind of find is treated as problematic because it means that the missing link is still missing. Nobody is the subhuman. That’s not good news for a Darwinian approach to human evolution, in which someone must be the subhuman.
A physicist looks at biology’s problem of “speciation” in humans
Consider this item on the recent find of the remains of a girl from 90,000 years ago: The discovery of the first-known offspring of parents from two different hominin species took scientists by surprise. While evidence has been pointing to interbreeding among the ancestor species of modern humans, the direct link is being hailed as Read More…
Neanderthal woman, Denisovan man
From ScienceDaily: Together with their sister group the Neanderthals, Denisovans are the closest extinct relatives of currently living humans. “We knew from previous studies that Neanderthals and Denisovans must have occasionally had children together,” says Viviane Slon, researcher at the MPI-EVA and one of three first authors of the study. “But I never thought we Read More…
