Contemporary Europeans have as many as three times more Neanderthal variants in genes involved in lipid catabolism than Asians and Africans.

Although Neanderthals are extinct, fragments of their genomes persist in modern humans. These shared regions are unevenly distributed across the genome and some regions are particularly enriched with Neanderthal variants. An international team of researchers led by Philipp Khaitovich of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany, and the CAS-MPG Partner Institute for Computational Biology in Shanghai, China, show that DNA sequences shared between modern humans and Neanderthals are specifically enriched in genes involved in the metabolic breakdown of lipids. This sharing of genes is seen mainly in contemporary humans of European descent and may have given a selective advantage to the individuals with the Neanderthal variants.

The researchers analyzed the distribution of Neanderthal variants in the genomes of eleven contemporary human populations of African, Asian and European descent. They found that genes involved in the lipid synthesis contained a particularly high number of Neanderthal variants in contemporary humans of European origin, but not in Asians and Africans.

Analyzing the influence of Neanderthal variants on lipid processing in modern humans, the researchers further found recent evolutionary changes in lipid concentration and expression of metabolic enzymes in brains of humans of European origin.

“We don’t know what these lipid concentration changes do to the brain, but the fact that Neanderthal variants might have changed our brain composition has interesting implications,” says Philipp Khaitovich. {snip}

            Best I can tell the official acronym is LGBTQMIAPD. The last four letters are Intersexual, Asexual, Pansexual, Demisexual (look ’em up if you care). The M, I don’t know except that it’s not Metrosexual.

          • Actually you’re not getting ridiculous, they’re the ones who are ridiculously expanding their own acronym by the letter. The more letters you shove into the acronym, the larger their tent gets, meaning the loose coalition of those who aren’t pair bonding heterosexuals gets too big to oppose.

          • Does this mean I can start referring to them as LGBTQMIAPDtards?

            They really need to rewrite that acronym into something that can be pronounced as if it were a word. The “tard” suffix would work better that way.

          • Svigor

            “Perverts” works for me, no need for an acronym.

            Good point. Just like “bastard” for children born outside of marriage. You try to come up with alternatives, and then you find that bastard works just fine.

            I think we have to go to alphabetical order at this point. I would reserve P for pedophile (only a matter of time) and Z for Zoo (bestiality, but B is already taken). Perhaps O for “Omnisexual” rather than P for “Pansexual”.

  • So if mixing with Neanderthals changed our brain composition, does that mean that mixing with, say, black people could change our brain composition, too?

    • NoRighty

      Yet East Asians (Japanese, Koreans, Chinese) are smarter than Europeans. Its time to end this racial charade. We humans are 99,9 % homogeneous. As long as we can have sex together and produce outcome, we are no different race.

      • Einsatzgrenadier

        I’m tired of hearing this. The Japanese, Koreans and especially Chinese are not smarter than Europeans. The average Chinaman is either a low caste rural peasant or an impoverished migrant worker. He is not smarter than the average European. The Northeast Asian contribution to science and technology is almost nil. Most of the evidence for Northeast Asian “cognitive superiority” comes from Lynn, which is contradicted by J. Flynn, who argues that their IQs are lower.

        • “The Northeast Asian contribution to science and technology is almost nil.”

          Yes, and their contribution to most everything else is also quite small. What are the great East Asian contributions to music, literature, visual art, philosophy, and politics? There are some, but their number, brilliance, and influence pales in comparison to those of Europe.

          Comparing European history with East Asian history, you would expect the average IQ to be about the reverse of what most average IQ data suggests. I.e., you would expect Europeans to be 3-5 points higher than Asians. I’m ok with being wrong about that, but my expectation is that as more and more research on Asian IQ is done, we will find that they are a few points behind us.

          • Raymond Kidwell

            From what I read in other studies, Asians have slightly more Neanderthal genes than whites, which is unexpected. Anyway in regards to I.Q. it depends on prospective. In the U.S. we could say that Asians score higher on I.Q. tests. The reason is that generally the smartest Asians immigrate here and their population is much larger than ours. Yet the reverse may be true for Mexico. One good example is that Africa’s I.Q. is much lower than the U.S. Yet the average African immigrant is much smarter and more successful than the typical black. The reason is that all the upper crust of Africa send their children to school in America and many of them immigrate here. This is the reverse of what happened in slave trading days when the bottom of Africa came here, or with Europe where generally the lowest strata of English society was sent on a ship to colonize America. It really depends on the samples you are comparing. As well I.Q. may not necessarily be the absolute biggest factor in civilization. Consider slightly smarter people living in a society besieged by disfucntion, corruption and crime. Most non-white civilizations tend to have a lot of exploitation of others, biased judicial systems, favoritism, cronyism, corruption etc. that stifles success. Even though there’s a lot of latent talent in China, those smart people come to the U.S. because the Chinese system is too corrupt to take advantage of that resource. So I would say that people tend to down play the value of altruism and civility.

          • Grantland

            The evolution of altruism and civility (and religion) is what enabled small family groups to coalesce and grow and unify and produce significant small proto-armies to kick some serious Neanderthal butt.

          • “As well I.Q. may not necessarily be the absolute biggest factor in civilization. Consider slightly smarter people living in a society besieged by disfucntion, corruption and crime. Most non-white civilizations tend to have a lot of exploitation of others, biased judicial systems, favoritism, cronyism, corruption etc. that stifles success.”
            That makes sense as a short term explanation, but not as a long term explanation. If, over a period of a few thousand years, a civilization has not managed to develop a structure that utilizes its talent well, then you have to wonder if they just don’t have the talent. Either that, or they are incapable of maintaining an optimal civilization. Either way, it doesn’t make them look real smart.

          • LovelyNordicHeidi

            The development in East Asian countries tended to be quite stagnant. They maintained some level of civilisation, but that’s it. This fact rather indicates that Flynn is correct. This would suggest that if East Asians have a lower IQ on average than Whites, they are overachievers rather than underachievers. Also, the fact that East Asians are pouring into the West does not suggest higher IQ than Whites. I stick with my hypothesis of non-White mass failure, and I have so far not seen any counterevidence which would refute that hypothesis, and I suspect that there is none.

          • For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much—the wheel, New York, wars and so on—whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man—for precisely the same reasons. ― Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

            Technological development and advanced building techniques aren’t the only way to measure cultural success though. I definitely don’t mean to harp on the same chord JT and JE seem obsessed with, but I will say that Traditional Chinese Medicine is the most advanced, most beneficial medicine there is. It has unfolded over a large span of time and is updated as new information and new techniques, even western ones force reevaluations of prevailing theories and treatments. It’s low cost, it’s harvested from nature and it’s totally snakeoil free… mostly. But western medicine is full of snake oil and harmful poisons, double-blind studies and all, so whatever. They also make the finest tea on the planet if you know where to get it.

            What some would call stagnation others might call stability. One area where I think we can learn from Asian cultures is how they do resist change because that means resisting external change too. This preserves cultural stability and national/ethnic values over time. In contrast whites are a welcoming bunch of naive folk with little internal cohesion, much tribal infighting, and a sense of racial identity so poorly developed that they barely kick and scream as they are marched toward the abattoir.

          • If their supposed stability were so great, they would have no need of endlessly adopting Western ideas and technology.

            White racial suicide is largely a phenomenon of the last ~50 years.

          • Indeed, whites were much more racially aware in the 40s and 50s and before. It’s only when the lefties in the 60s, the Commie civil rights attorneys and agitators like MLK began to strip whites of their racial awareness and instill a lasting sense of seemingly self-perpetuating white guilt. It’s not self-perpetuating though. It’s propagated by the media, which they own. Looking at crime statistics or driving down any number of blocks in the country quickly clarifies the truth of racial realism. They do tend to lack innovation in invention but they are quite good at making marginal improvements quickly and in cranking out lots of cheap product.

          • LovelyNordicHeidi

            “but I will say that Traditional Chinese Medicine is the most advanced, most beneficial system of medicine there is.”

            I have heard several times that Traditional Chinese Medicine is quite advanced, but Western scientists do not seem to think that it actually works. Maybe some of it works, but we need to know whether most of it are just placebos or real cures. I am really in favour of biological food and natural medicine and so on, and I am not biased towards Traditional Chinese Medicine. I am open-minded towards natural medicine, as long as it actually works. I am even in favour of the pro-nature and pro-environment ideas of “die Grünen” in Germany. I am really not unfamiliar with such things.

            Can you find scientific evidence on the internet that Traditional Chinese Medicine “is the most advanced, most beneficial system of medicine there is”?

          • I’m not really motivated to, Heidi. I can tell you that mushrooms work, that’s sort of a bit of Chinese medicine, heavy Japanese medicine, bolstered with some western research. Reishi, turkey tail, lion’s mane, cordyceps, these are some really powerful foods/medicines. Shilajit is outstanding. These things have multiple effects and I personally use them with good effect. That’s the approach that makes sense and it’s not exclusively Chinese. I place far less stock in acupuncture and in other areas than in do in the nutritional area which is the basis for their cures/treatments mostly. In the west, we medicate symptoms with drugs that cause bad side effects, and we cut people open a lot. These are flawed ideas of doing no harm. Indian Ayurveda is similar though mystical in its origins, not experience-based. I go by what works. North American Indian and European native medicine and white man’s medicine from America is also of value. Hawthorne is good for the heart. No one argues against this. Milk thistle regenerates the liver. This is also not really news. Certain plants, barks, shrooms, have benefits for certain organs or organ systems and on certain metrics of health like blood pressure and even blood sugar. These are much smarter ways to tinker with our health needs than stuff that will get pulled from the shelves in a decade for having caused liver failure.

          • LovelyNordicHeidi

            I’m not really motivated to, Heidi.

            Sorry, Augur, for annoying you with annoying questions! I do believe that natural medicine works, but I am specifically talking about what percentage of Traditional Chinese Medicine works. I also think that Blacks and Amerindians have their natural medicine. There is stuff that we can learn from them for sure. People adapt to their environment, and learn from their environment.

            There is nothing strange about that. Still, I think that there is a huge difference between European culture and non-White cultures. Unlike some other race realists, I do really acknowledge that non-White races and ethnicities (including the ones that are not really in contact with Western civilisation) do possess valuable knowledge, such as natural medicine, etc. I will try to find out more on the internet about Traditional Chinese Medicine, and I am especially interested in what scientists have to say. Your personal experience is fascinating. I do have similar experiences with natural medicine, but not as miraculous as yours. I do not doubt that natural medicine works, but as I have indicated before, I want to know statistically how valuable Traditional Chinese Medicine is to the world. Remember, I am not trying to justify “White supremacy” by ignoring facts about non-Whites. I just want to know the truth.

            Be seeing you…

            Augur, I would have offered you a hot cup of ecological tea by now if you were here in Germany!

          • Yeah, I wanted to share that story because there’s no placebo effect with repairing longstanding permanent nerve damage to a stretched peripheral nerve, that’s proof. Reishi’s a really strong blood thinner but seems to have the widest allegedly positive effects. Turkey tail’s for cancer, lots of other stuff, so’s reishi, chaga too. The mushrooms are what I’m interested in most at the moment because it’s so foreign to me and because they seem to do amazing things. Serrapeptase is miraculous. Elderberry really does help the immune system. Colostrum is basically ambrosia for us, it makes you sleep like a rock for some reason too. It’s not that I fancy it because it’s foreign, and much of it isn’t. Some’s from America, some Europe, but lots from the East. It’s the recognition that food is medicine that is the main thing. Why take prescriptions with dozens of scary warnings on them when you effect the same changes more safely with one or a few foods that have real medicinal effects.

            Tea is also considered healing and the different variants of tea have interesting effects. Green tea’s a strong blood thinner but lacks caffeine. Black tea has more caffeine but is less healthful overall, but has some specific health benefits green does not, according to the Chinese. Same with white tea. Presently I’m fixated on fermented pu-erh tea for purported digestive benefits and because the fermentation process over years turns green tea into black looking tea that cannot develop tannins. Tannins have recently been proposed to be carcinogenic and it does taste nasty when I overbrew black tea. Can’t oversteep pu-erh and it stores forever apparently. It is an acquired taste.

            You will say indeed. The next time you get an infection, will you try their superstitious crap or try modern antibiotics. The answer is obvious. What about x rays, EKGs, IV fluids, surgical joint replacement, modern biologicals and endless other real evidence based medical interventions. There is no comparison. Western medicine is so superior to their lead and melamine laced excuse for pharmaceuticals that only the most fanciful simpleton could come up with some vague theory of Ying and Yang and actually believe it. To compare their updating to the huge masses of new data in Western Medicine is beyond ludicrous. If you estimated IQ comparison on the basis of the sophistication of Western vs Eastern medicine you wouldn’t get a 3 point difference, you would get a ratio of 3 in favor of White Europeon derived peoples. Please do a re-think.

          • And yet I had a rather uncomplicated in nature, but impossible to resolve by western medicine, longstanding stretch injury to a peripheral nerve and I remylenated it eight years after the original injury. Western medicine can do nothing to resolve that. Ask a neurosurgeon or neurologist about stretch injuries to peripheral nerves that have filled in with scar already.

          • sshadow

            A long nerve can take a very long time to regenerate naturally. There is no reason to think eastern medicine had anything to do with it.

          • No. They don’t heal once they’ve filled in with scar. They’ve done healing at that point… with scar. This prevents nerve transmission like nicking your electrical cord on an appliance. But I used serrapeptase on an empty stomach to dissolve the scar tissue. Took less than 2 months to have an effect, may have needed much less time than that to work possibly because I wasn’t taking it on an empty stomach at first. When the nerve began to fire again it was more marked an improvement than when I’d been using a muscle stimulator in the first few months following the injury. It was that dramatic. This is not how that type of injury heals. If it’s going to resolve like that it’ll happen in the first year. Once all that scar’s filled in though, it’s done.

          • sshadow

            Complete fallacy. How do you know it is filled with scar tissue? If the myelin is gone there is nothing to be filled. Mother nature does regrow nerves. From Biochem, a substance named scientifically, ending in “ase”, is an enzyme, which is protein, which is broken up by the concentrated acid of an empty stomach into amino acids, which of course destroys its functionality. It can’t work.

            “But I used serrapeptase on an empty stomach to dissolve the scar tissue”
            Why didn’t it dissolve other scar tissue in your system. Makes no sense.
            I’m sure we agree in other areas, but this is nutty.

          • Look, you can be a professional naysayer all you want. I know what I experienced. I had a thoractomy at the wrong level and either from positioning or the excessive retraction due to poor choice of operative site, I had a stretch injury to my long thoracic nerve. I had a winged scapula because my serratus was not working. It didn’t improve except with electrical stimulation and once that device was removed it stopped firing at all. My shoulder shifted around into a wrongish orientation, had ancillary neck issues and weakness of outside deltoid, and some other muscle, trapezius I think too, but all b/c of the serratus not working. For 8 years this persisted. It’s already in the literature that after 7 years any longstanding peripheral nerve injury is not going to improve and that after a year or 18 months almost all of the improvement has taken place. Once it’s filled in with scar, the stretched coating of your nerve, your body doesn’t identify that scar as an injury. To your body it’s fixed, but your nerve does not work.

            Anyway, look into it if you’re inclined. I wouldn’t mouth off about it if it hadn’t performed, what by western medical standards, would be considered a miraculous recovery. It’s probably about 70-90% now, it does keep improving though as I keep taking the serrapeptase. Whatever. This isn’t particularly on topic for this forum.

          • I didn’t say it didn’t dissolve scar tissue in other areas…

          • The element that stagnated East Asia was Confucian philosophy. That is the origin of their culture of conformity. The Chinese needed iron discipline to manage the Yellow River, a,k,a, “China’s Sorrow”. This river silts up its bed very quickly and throughout history has shifted its course to the sea from the north side of the Liaotung peninsula to the south, and then back. Looking at a map, one can only imagine what this does to flat farmland and the people there.

            They manage better in the West: well, who doesn’t? The guy who designed the beautiful body styling of the 1963 Corvette “Stingray” was Larry Shinoda, a Japanese-American who grew up in the old Los Angeles “hot rod” culture.

          • LovelyNordicHeidi

            “The element that stagnated East Asia was Confucian philosophy.”

            I think that you have it the wrong way around. Confucian philosophy was the result of a stagnating element in East Asians, and Confucianism comes much more natural to them than Whites. Confucianism is a rationalisation of East Asian behaviour, like humanism is a rationalisation of European behaviour. We know that East Asians are conformists, but there seems to be much more under the surface.

            That currently hidden information will help to explain why East Asians have failed to independently develop a civilisation that is like that of the White man. The Romans were wrong about the Germans, but are we wrong about the East Asians? We can only learn that by making empirical studies of their contributions to civilisation and science. However, that does not look too good for them. The ancient Germans were inventive people in contrast to East Asians. This becomes very clear when one studies the Vikings.

            “They manage better in the West: well, who doesn’t?”

            All non-Whites seems to be dependent on Whites in one way or another.

          • Grantland

            West vs East Germany.

          • LovelyNordicHeidi

            I see. East Germans quickly caught up with the West Germans when the Berlin wall fell. If you argue that the problem of East Asians is cultural and economic, then why do they still rely on Whites for about everything innovative, even when they live in the West?

          • Grantland

            They have deficient cultural and economic systems. And we have a creative flair that they lack.

          • LovelyNordicHeidi

            Then you support my concept of “non-White mass failure.” Not being innovative or creative is a form of failure, no matter how you turn it. I am not deluded about how cultural and economic systems can influence people, but that is insufficient to explain the long-term failure of East Asians. Germans developed. Romans developed. East Asians stood still. Other non-Whites stood still. An inclination towards stagnation in development is a non-White trait.

          • Martel

            Its insane to think our brains are only different in terms of intellectual capacity. It surely has developed in many different ways between Africans, Europeans and Asians, in ways we surely will find out.

          • LovelyNordicHeidi

            I think that for that reason if we compare East Asian IQ and European IQ, we are not comparing apples with apples but apples with bananas. An IQ below 80 means something else for a Black than for a White. The implications of having a certain IQ seem to differ among the races. I am still reflecting on this issue, but what I say now about IQ are my current views on IQ.

          • Martel

            The implications radically differ compared what is generally believed today, there is simply no way only brain functions which directly affect “general intelligence” could have been effected by evolutionary progress amongst the different races.

          • LovelyNordicHeidi

            True. As I mentioned above to Grantland, self-control is one of them. Our personality traits are affected by those cognitive differences among the races. It is very interesting to think about it. Even, it always amazes me that science has established that we thought very differently just a few hundreds years ago!

            Ik vind het grappig dat nu meer mensen eindelijk een echte discussie met mij willen aangaan. Eerder waren ze het alleen met mij eens. Ik houd van stevige discussies, zolang als het feitelijk blijft. Ik vind het niet erg als je kritiek op mij levert of als je iets op mijn argumenten hebt aan te merken.

          • “It is very interesting to think about it. It still amazes me that science has established that we thought very differently just a few hundreds years ago!”
            In what ways? That is very interesting. Never heard that before.

          • Martel

            Our ancestors were very astute, they noticed even minor details and figured out how the races differed. The claims of “prejudice” never made any sense either, they gave praise where praise was due. Its a shame our beautiful history is hidden because of leftwing myths.

          • Das kommt mir Nederlandische, but I can read it for context.

          • Grantland

            I’m saying its not all about IQ.

          • LovelyNordicHeidi

            I got that part, Grantland. For example, there is a higher correlation between self-control and university entrance than between IQ and university entrance. Also, self-control is a highly genetic personality trait, if self-control is to be described as a personality trait. I am not an IQ monger. IQ is just a part of the whole story, and it is not the whole story.

      • That didn’t make any sense. You started out by saying that we’re different and ended by saying that we’re not. In any case, different dog breeds can reproduce with each other. Does that mean there are no dog breeds? Furthermore, we reproduced with Neanderthals, and doing so (evidently) changed our brain composition. If the ability to reproduce together implies that there is no important difference, then you must think that reproducing with ourselves changed our brain composition. Is that what you think?

      • LovelyNordicHeidi

        As long as we can have sex together and produce outcome, we are no different race.

        This is a textbook example of a fallacious race denialist argument. The boundaries of species are defined by “the ability to produce offspring with members of the same species”, but the boundaries of race, breed or subspecies are NOT defined by “the ability to produce offspring with members of the same race, breed or subspecies”.

        • bear grylls

          I will make an even better point.Coyotes and wolves can produce fertile offspring together yet are different species.The difference is that they behave differently.I would say wolves are in fact more intelligent than coyotes.They have complex societies and are one of the most successful large predator on the planet.That is why we have exterminated so many but we domesticated them too.Actually they domesticated themselves. Every dog is a wolf.

            You mean, the dog is descended from the wolf.

          • New World llamas and Old World camels are interfertile, but you need a male llama and a female camel, due to the size difference. Sheep and goats are occasionally interfertile. Zebras and donkeys. Zebras and horses. Cattle and bison. Lions and tigers. Grizzly bears and polar bears. (and bears, oh my!) I don’t know if anyone has ever tried North American pumas and African leopards, but I suspect the answer would be “yes”. Their sizes are certainly compatible.

          • Reverend Bacon

            Yes, there are plenty of reasons why one might classify, say, the African as a different species. They are clearly a different race; this is proven through the fact that they can be distinguished 100% by their DNA, their scents, their physiognomy, and their skeletal structure. Europeans have completely evolved away the tail, while Africans have retained extra precoccygeal vertebrae.

          • David Ashton

            It is discreetly stated in the textbooks that west African blacks have more “private genes” than other “races”.

          • bear grylls

            They are dumb downed wolves.Btw ever hear of a dog called the malamute.I have had three.They behave very wolf like.Oh and it has been theorized that the Red wolf which is almost extinct is a wolf coyote hybrid.An unsucessful hybrid you see.

          • Some of my friends had a wolf. Roxanne was female and a big girl. Once she understood the she was not alpha female – when Glenn and Julie had a human daughter – she was very protective of that little girl, but also always slept with me on the basement floor.

            Sleeping on a sofa makes my back hurt; the floor was better.

      • Martel

        A rottweiler and a Labrador are the same, because they can mate and reproduce. The laws of evolution ban the possibility of groups of humans inhabiting different regions for ten thousands of years without evolving in different ways.

      • David Ashton

        We are no different race us Europeans and East Asians so how can we tell which is which and who are smarter?

        • Grantland

          Hey, we’re better. But the Asians are our brothers.

    • Alucard_the_last

      True. While they are intellectually inferior to us, black/white hybrids are superior to blacks.

  • BonV.Vant

    I guess this is why Europeans don’t go totally ape over things like fruit juice, cool aid and “grape drank”. Running the body, and brain, on sugars is like running a car engine with a high nitrous oxide content. It leads to early burn out.

    • LHathaway

      Sugar and salt – we’re attracted to what kills us when we get too much of what we want.

    • Max

      The brain runs entirely on glucose except under conditions of deprivation such as severe fasting or starvation. A normal calorie intake will not alter this regardless of whether the calories are from sugar, fat or protein intake. Few are presently starving here or in Europe.

      • Grantland

        Nope, (most of) our brains can run on ketones if we eat no carbs. Carnivores like neanderthals do this full time.

  • John R

    This study is allowed because most people still believe that the Neanderthals were stupid, crude savages, inferior to modern humans. But the fact is they have one anatomical feature setting them apart from modern humans: Their brain size is actually larger than ours. Hmmm…can’t go too far with that, though. Funny how Africans don’t have Neanderthal DNA and apparently White people have the most.

    • leftists are delusional

      Once someone figures out that even the small Neanderthal DNA present in Asians and Europeans but non existent in sub Saharans African makes them a hybrid distinct from sub Saharan African H. s. sapiens species things are going to get fun.

      • Grantland

        Africans are not h sapiens sapiens, though they do have some hss genes. They are a hybrid of h sapiens and rhodesiensis.

            There is evidence suggesting archaic humans interbred with Africans, but which archaic species and if it is solely contained in African populations as Neanderthal and Denisovian are with Asian and European populations has not been established.

            Typically when one makes a claim, and another request the source it is considered very impolite to tell the requester to “look it up.”

            Is this helping?

            Africans have continued to mate with African hominids while those who left Africa didn’t. So beside the Neanderthal DNA that Africans don’t have, we indeed don’t have some of their DNA they acquired after we left:

            1) “Although all known African fossils are of modern humans, a
            13,000-year-old skull from the Iwo Eleru site in Nigeria has certain primitive features. “This might have indicated interbreeding with archaics,” said Chris Stringer, a paleoanthropologist at the Natural History Museum in London. “For half of Africa we really have no fossil record to speak of, so I think it’s quite likely there were surviving archaic forms living alongside modern humans.”
            nytimes com/2012/07/27/science/cousins-of-neanderthals-left-dna-in-africa-scientists-report html

            2) “In 2011 Michael Hammer et al. at the University of Arizona studied DNA from two African hunter-gatherer groups, the Biaka Pygmies, the San and the West African agricultural Mandinka people. They concluded that roughly 2% of the genetic material found in these modern African populations was inserted into the human genome approximately 35,000 years ago. They also concluded these sequences must have come from a now-extinct member of the Homo genus that broke away from the modern human lineage around 700,000 years ago.[42]”

            “In 2012 another study wasdone by Sarah Tishkoff et al. at the University of Pennsylvania. They tested 3 sub-Saharan African populations – Pygmies from Cameroon and the Hadza and Sandawe, both from Tanzania. The team found signs that the ancestors of the hunter-gatherers bred with different species of hominins, probably more than 40,000 years ago.[43]”

            3) If I understand the following article correctly
            phys org/news/2014-09-ancient-human-genome-southern-africa html
            there were still living hominids 2000 years ago. I am not sure mating was possible with those specific hominids but with others, earlier in time it was, (I sent the following article to Amren but they didn’t publish it). After all the races were separated for 50000 and mating is still possible (I always wonder if there were or are Australoids and Negroids couple and children, if so they were separated 70 000 and are the furthest races apart):

            “What can DNA from the skeleton of a man who lived 2,330 years ago in the southernmost tip of Africa tell us about ourselves as humans? A great deal when his DNA profile is one of the ‘earliest diverged’ – oldest in genetic terms – found to-date in a region where modern humans are believed to have originated roughly 200,000 years ago.”

    • WR_the_realist

      Actually there are many anatomical features setting Neanderthals apart from humans. They had much more robust skeletons and were much stronger than modern humans.

      • Bartek

        There are also many anatomical features setting Europeans, Asians, and Africans apart from each other.
        A forensic anthropologist can always tell you the race of a contemporary skeleton.

    • Leelywhite

      A bigger brain and a smaller pelvis. A blueprint for extinction.

  • Alfred the Great

    I wonder it the Neanderthals were the ones mentioned in Genesis 6:8 that were interbreeding with the Adamites?

    • Sangraal

      I have often wondered if mythological references to giants/jotun/nephilim/fir bolg etc. are a result of some kind of racial memory of neanderthals, or perhaps ways of explaining uncovered neanderthal bones. The fact that so many of these myths involve humans interbreeding with giants makes this all the more intriguing.

      • Alfred the Great

        In ancient Greek, giants are those who sprang from the earth. I think this characterization was used because the early Adamites couldn’t figure out where these other creatures (people?) came from.

  • Alfred the Great

    I wonder if there is any credence in the polygenesis theory?

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      I personally subscribe to Coon’s mulitregionalist hypothesis, rather than the PC Out-of-Africa theory of modern human origins. Modern humans evolved from 5 separate populations of Homo erectus. Some humans did this earlier than others, which is why congoids, capoids and australoids are less evolved than caucasoids and mongoloids.

      DNA analysis reveals that humans, with the exception of Africans, have Neanderthal and Denisovan admixture. However, Africans have paleoafrican DNA. If we all migrated out of Africa approximately 80,000 years ago, how come none of the other races have paleoafrican DNA?

      • IstvanIN

        I don’t think we are allowed to use the word coon anymore.

      • Max

        I began to wonder about such a possibility a few years ago but had never heard it propounded by anyone official. It struck me that all research seemed committed to fitting every finding into the shape of “Well, we KNOW that these people must have origins HERE, because the Leakeys proved it so how can these data fit into that immutable paradigm?” Do you know a concentrated and credible source of info on the topic?

        • Einsatzgrenadier

          Coon’s book “The Origin of Races” (1962) is one of the earliest, classical formulations of the multiregional evolution hypothesis. A more modern version of multiregionalism can be found in the writings of paleoanthropologist Milton H. Wolpoff.

        • Alfred the Great

          I have had to read many books on the subject, so I can’t give you a single, credible source. In some of the Bible commentaries that I read, the common theme is that there is no way for all of the races to develop from a single pair, given the chronology of the Bible. Therefore, the others were here before God made Adam and Eve. To me, this is the only theory that really makes sense. One reason is because the Bible never addresses where the different races came from. It only relates the story of the Adamites through Noah and so on. I also say that it is nonsense to say that the sons of Noah generated the different races. It is impossible for white people to have a negroid baby, for example. However, the Bible must be inclusive (the Church) even though if I were to choose one word to define the Old Testament, it would be exclusive. Another word could be racist. Another reason is because we have Egyptian art from about 5,ooo years ago and they depict Libyans, Asians, Ethiopians, and Egyptians, so we know what some of the races looked like back then…AND…they haven’t changed since then–other than from admixture. Who knows what the answer is though.

          • David Ashton

            The Egyptian depictions rule out the usual fundamentalist dates for the Deluge and the Tower of Babel.

          • Grantland

            The deluge was the incursion of the Mediterranean into the Black Sea through the collapsed Bosphorus bridge, perhaps occasioned by an earthquake, or just melting glacier overflow.

          • David Ashton

            Maybe.
            Biblical chronology suggests too recent a date for all the present diverse human population groups to have evolved entirely from Noah’s family after a global flood.

          • Grantland

            Nooo, but the tribesmen didn’t know about that.

          • stewball

            It’s been scientifically proven that there was no deluge. Not noah’s or anybody elses.

          • Yes; the Black Sea was also originally connected to the Caspian and Aral Seas. Things change.

      • Homo erectus fossils appeared in east Asia and the Middle East at about the same time in the fossil record, so whatever happened must have occurred relatively quickly.

      • Anna Tree

        Einsatzgrenadier, regarding your “If we all migrated out of Africa approximately 80,000 years ago, how come none of the other races have paleoafrican DNA?” (my answer is in # 3)

        In my understanding:

        1) As per the Out Of Africa Theory, there was a first wave out of Africa, 70,000 years ago, that went east following the coast and mated with local homonids, included Denisovans (sharing up to 6% DNA.) Their descendants are the Australoids (Indonesians, Malaysians, Guinea Papuans and Australian Arborigenes; Filipinos are a mixed with Caucasoids and Mongoloids; it seems Australoids also sailed to the South Americas, mixing there with Mongoloids coming from the North, while those Mongoloids who didn’t go South and stayed in North America mixed with Caucasoids) Australoids are actually the least related, i.e. the furthest genetically from Africans, despite their skin colour, who is an environmental adaptation (convergent evolution.)

        2) Caucasoids and Mongoloids are the descendants of the Cro-magnons who were the second wave out of Africa 50,000 years ago. They went first to the Middle East where they started to mate with local hominids, mostly the Neanderthals, sharing up to 4% of their DNA. They separated later, going to North Africa, Europe and Asia. Those going to Europe continued to mate with Neanderthals there while Asians seem to have mated with other local hominids in Asia (like the Red Deer Cave people of China), maybe also mating with Denisovans more than the European Cromagnons. Notably bringing difference between South and North-East Asians.

        “Non-modern varieties of Homo are certain to have survived until
        after 30,000 years ago, and perhaps until as recent as 10,000 years ago.
        Which of these, if any, are included under the term “archaic human” is a
        matter of definition and varies among authors. Nonetheless, according
        to recent genetic studies, modern humans seem to have bred with “at
        least two groups” of ancient humans: Neanderthals and Denisovans.[3] New evidence suggests another group may also have been extant as recently as 11,500 years ago, the Red Deer Cave people of China.[4]”
        en(dot)wikipedia(dot)org/wiki/Archaic_Homo_sapiens

        3) But the differences between the races is not only about that those who left Africa mated with new hominids while the Negroids who stayed didn’t, it is also because the Negroids continued to mate with the hominins of Africa, unlike those waves of homosapiens (Australoids, Caucasoids and Mongoloids) who didn’t mate anymore with them after they left Africa.)

        “In 2011 Michael Hammer et al. at the University of Arizona studied DNA
        from two African hunter-gatherer groups, the Biaka Pygmies, the San and
        the West African agricultural Mandinka people. They concluded that

        • Grantland

          There was no “out of Africa”. Archaic homo sapiens were extant in both Africa and the Levant 120k+y ago, bounded to the North and West by ferocious Neanderthals and to the East by Denisoveans and h erectus. Periodic Neanderthal incursions in the Levant, and 50k years of geographical co-habitation and Neanderthal predation there reduced h sapiens to a tiny, invisible band of survivors, the first of which split East to take on and defeat the Eastern foes. The remainder continued to evolve under the hellish predation until they became Cro-magnon, the supreme warrior. Then it was all over bar the shouting.

  • Every time I see a group of “diverse youfs” in my vicinity, I’m forced to embrace my inner Neanderthal. I love him. When he wakes up, I turn into the Incredibile Hulk.

      Strict carnivore diet.

      • Ella

        But, they ate more game meat being leaner and fish. I also believe that they ate much less, around 1-2 meat servings per week because of weather conditions and hunting challenges.

  • IstvanIN

    The brain needs fats to grow and develop. Parents who try to raise a baby as a vegetarian will end up with a mentally deficient child. Perhaps we have more lipids in our brains because we are BOTH smarter and more creative and need more fats to fuel the furnace.

          • I’m currently reading “The Humans Who Went Extinct” by Clive Finlayson. I found the link to it somewhere here and ordered it from Amazon. ISBN 978-0-19-923919-1. This is the paperback edition, but the original hardback version was first published in 2009, so this information is pretty recent as these things go.

            Neanderthals ate all sorts of things. A pregnant Neanderthal gal certainly wouldn’t hunt anything, but could certainly pick berries and seeds and – if she wasn’t too far along – dig up edible roots. We know from fossilized remains that they took care of their disabled and injured, because the aged and those who had recovered from severe bone breaks are in the fossil record.

          • Grantland

            The original thought (pre-PC) was that they were monstrous predators. Then the huggy-bunny, lovey-dovey crowd anthropomosized them into big, friendly fellas. They ate meat/fat almost exclusively.

          • This probably depended upon what was in season.

          • Grantland

            Not much of a growing season in the ice ages.

          • Even in the Colorado high country with snow on the ground, one can eat pine nuts and juniper berries.

          • Grantland

            Sure, some. Probably less on permafrost, or a glacier.

          • Garrett Brown

            You’re missing the point. A few berries isn’t giving them enough energy to survive the frozen tundra. They at Mammoth, and lots of it.

          • Grantland

            erk! What are you, some kind of sicko?

          • The problem there is that the mammoths (and other herbivores they hunted) would have needed plenty of vegetable matter to eat themselves. Mammoths didn’t simply wander around on glaciers eating snow. Since a mammoth is really just a furry elephant, a herd of mammoths would need quite a lot of plant matter.

          • Grantland

            Ja, but these were pure herbivores, who could root under the snow for (to us) indigestible etiolated grasses.

          • Of course, but not through glaciated ice.

          • Grantland

            You’re absolutely right.

          • Not a growing season,but at the edges of the galciers, all sorts of things bloom.

          • Grantland

            Ok, they ate some plants/fruits. They lived in forests. But they needed twice as many daily calories as us.

          • Bartek

            Like an Eskimo?
            Could that be because Eurasia was covered in Ice Age glaciers at the time?

          • Grantland

            Right. But Eskimos are h sapiens sapiens using brains and technology to survive in a clime different to the one where they evolved over the ice ages. No seals and fish, only big game like mammoth, so evolution made them physically strong and ferocious. Probably nocturnal too. Night ambush group hunters. The boogeyman.

          • Grantland

            Hell of a clumsy word there. Humanized I say, and God damn the torpedoes!

          • Grantland

            “..took care of their injured”. Like wolves with brains and tools might do, for a pack member.

        • Ella

          Did the Neanderthals have dairy cattle? (Curious)

          • Grantland

            No they were hunters. No animal domestication.

          • Cattle were first domesticated in southern Europe, but only much later. Horses in what is now southwestern Russia. Goats, sheep and donkeys in the middle-east. Water buffalo, zebu and chickens in south and southeast Asia. Pigs appear to have been independently domesticated in both Europe and southeast Asia: mmmmm, bacon!

            My understanding is that animal domestication – aside from wolves -really got underway only about 10,000 years ago.

          • Garrett Brown

            Yah, they milked mammoths.

          • Ella

            LoL, hair adds some extra protein. If you live with a dog, you know hair ends up in food once in a while regardless of the cleanliness.

          • Garrett Brown

            Not very good for fiber though.

        • Zaporizhian Sich

          Precisely, we are omnivores whose physiology was also altered by the first great technological leap, mastering the use of fire, which lead to the second great leap, cooking. Cooking our food allowed us to develop and maintain large and complex brains. All organisms have a fixed energy budget into which movement, reproduction, digestion, waste elimination, thinking, immune system, and everything else an organism must do to maintain its life. To maintain a large brain means taking away from energy, and nutrients that are also needed elsewhere. Cooking makes it possible for us to extract more nutrients from food while using less energy, which frees up both nutrients and energy for use elsewhere. This is why humans if they ate only raw food would slowly starve to death, even if they ate raw meat. We simply can no longer digest raw food, while all animals do.

    • Max

      Seems plausible that the diet composed of different varieties and proportions of animal and vegetable fats from peoples from different regions develop different metabolism. It would be expected, I think.

      • Grantland

        Nope. ” Fortunately, we have a terrific system of fuel for periods of fasting or low carbohydrate eating – our body (and brain) can readily shift from burning glucose to burning what are called ketone bodies.” – Your brain on ketones.

    • Alfred the Great

      We were made to eat meat in our diets, regardless of what some people say. Diets of vegetables cannot replicate that which is only in meats. I agree with you.

    What do we know about ‘Neanderthals’? They may have had bigger brains than us. ‘Neanderthals’ only lived in Europe. These ‘Neanderthals’ are now completely extinct.

    It’s amazing, the intricasy of these articles about nothing.

    • Bartek

      Obviously Neanderthals are not completely extinct (don’t ‘worry’, the effort continues).
      Perhaps the undisclosed reality is that there at least three distinct races of the genus-homo present on the planet right now.
      Through most of history there has been more than one species of homo present on Earth, why suddenly is there supposedly only one?
      After all, it isn’t like anyone in subversive PC academia would be permitted to voice such a speculation…so they don’t.

    • Grantland

      They were carnivore apex predators.

        ..and they were insanely powerful.

        • My high school best friend is Scottish, Ukrainian and German, and is built much more like a gorilla than those, though not on purpose; he never worked out.

          Same with the Asians.
          The species can inter mix, but it does create reproductive issues and higher infant mortality. (a more sensible explanation than blaming ‘White Privilege”, the stress of White society, etc.)

            The Neanderthals were so far apart from the out-of-Africa humans that their offspring were usually mules. This has been proven quite recently in that our Neanderthal DNA is almost never expressed in our reproductive system. In layman’s terms: fertility was an anti-factor in Neanderthal-African pairings. In further layman’s terms: what Neanderthal DNA we have, is almost a miracle.

            It’s been posted at AmRen a few times IIRC.

            “Proven” is such a broad term in a “science” that relies more on language semantics and corollary comparisons than quantitative measurements.
            What is the measurable factor that determines species? Is there one established? There isn’t one, and that isn’t physical science. This is a pseudo-science and philosophy. Much this reminds me of high tech Phrenology.
            How did they “prove” their “mule” hypothesis? How large was their sample size? Was it one female femur bone in a geographically isolated cave?
            Distinct Neanderthal DNA present in modern Europeans is a miracle you say? That is a pretty wild statement. No, more likely the conclusion drawn from the infinitesimally small sample in one study does not apply to the whole. You have heard of Occam’s Razor haven’t you?
            I have read that the defining characteristic of ‘species’ is the ability to reproduce? Is that true? Is that the current ‘conventional wisdom’? Is that based on anything measurable, and how it is measured?
            If that is the “defining” characteristic of “species”, obviously Neanderthal/Erectus/etc. never were “species”. Consequently, all the old bone fragments are simply old Homo Sapien bone fragments.
            This “science”, although fascinating, reeks of politics and agendas.

            Neanderthal, blood type was 0 RH negative, and early Homo Sapiens were RH positive; a neanderthal female RH negative, have very few chances of carrying to term, a pregnancy if the father of the child was Homo Sapiens (RH positive). The successful pregnancy was neanderthal father & homo sapiens father; but for unknown reasons, only their daughters were able to pass their genes to us. There are a high % of RH negative among Basques (Spain & France) and Celts (North West Spain, Wales, Ireland, Scotland, NorthW Italy, France, Southern Germany, etc.)

            Blacks are thought to be archaic homo-sapiens (something like a slightly taller, dumber bushman/hottentot) with a very large dose of h heidelbergensis/rhodesienses – different species. Whites and Asians are thought to be h sapiens sapiens with a trace of Neanderthal and Denisovan, respectively.

          • robinbishop34

            I think I saw a Hottentot in the supermarket today.

    • Garrett Brown

      Yah, and the Bobster. I miss them…

  • Bartek

    Perhaps this genetic trait causes the majority of Whites to refuse to promote White interests and to reject identifying with their fellow Whites.
    Maybe it is a trait that contributes to extinction.

  • i wonder if the Neanerthal DNA in the Euro’s and Asian in the brain, May be a factor why you see such successfull, civilizations, and as well as inventors, emproving old ideas to better ideas, such as taking somthing simple as a weel cart with just an axel and giving it shocks for a better ride, or taking black powder and making guns, taking an idea of running water from a spring, and making fountains. somthing that you don’t see much with other homids that did not interbreed.

  • Alucard_the_last

    Blacks are homo erectus but the media and government will never admit it due political correctness. They can fake being human but deep down inside, they are not us.

  • scutum

    Well, this is just fuirther proof that Asians and especially Africans are superior to Europeans.

    • Grantland

      Asians and us had to evolve to what we are to defeat these creatures. Africans did not.

  • Tarczan

    One of the differences between Cro-Magnon and Neanderthal was that Cro-Magnons had dogs, Neanderthal didn’t. It is felt the use of dogs for hunting and as an early warning system gave them a significant advantage. No dog bones were found in Neanderthal camps.

    • Tarczan

      And my little doggie would provide me a big advantage were darkies to attack fortress Tarzania.

    • Lt. Greyman, NVA

      Interesting. Negros were the same.

      In a land teeming with animals, negros never domesticated one, even the intelligent African Dog. Of course, that could mean that the African dog was smart enough to avoid negros.

      You must be mistaken.

  • Do I really have to be so toxic?

    Who do you think poisoned me?

  • Bears are fairly smart. I once saw a polar bear cover its nose with a paw while hunting because it knew that it had a black nose. That made me want to get away, but all I did was watch.

    Leopard seals in the antarctic are also rather intelligent.

    • POLARBEAR

      Thanks Michael . . . by the way this is what the
      far side of the moon looks like..

      • I was under the distinct impression that the far side of the moon consisted of infantry battles punctuated with artillery.

        • POLARBEAR

          I know this pic has no context to anything being expressed in this thread but I had just downloaded this from my fav. astronomy website and simply had to share . . . pay no mind ..

  • Most western medicines sold with a prescription have their roots in plants. Lots of Indian and Chinese doctors write very non snakeoil papers and publish them in peer-reviewed journals and they talk about taking TCM and Ayurvedic cures and using western lab science to explain why they work.

  • William_JD

    What an unbelievably stupid article! What the hell do these genes do?

  • That’s what I told my friend: “Neanderthals are not extinct; they just got diluted out a bit.”

  • mei mei

    does this make whites are less human than Asians and Africans?

  • Carlos Geary

    The brain lipid cluster reached 20% for Europeans, but is higher for Spain, that explains the very high % of Neanderthal genes in Latin Americans.

  • captainc

    yeah, that was very interesting, I watched it in youtube. there is even lion.
