Neanderthals mated with some modern humans after all and left their imprint in the human genome, a team of biologists has reported in the first detailed analysis of the Neanderthal genetic sequence.

This (http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/07/science/07neanderthal.html?src=me&ref=general) explains so much.

I can just hear the creationists going nuts over this...

"My grandfather wasn't a monkey, and he didn't have sex with one, either!"

is this a new theory? Cuz I remember hearing something along similar lines years ago... "Looks like early man made love not war with neanderthals..."

I doubt it's a new theory, but now there's DNA evidence to back it up...

That would be pretty sweet, a bit of crossbreeding. Wonder how much ass a neanderthal lady would have. Who here would go for it if the opportunity presented itself?

As a woman, I pretty much always feel like I'm surrounded by neanderthals.

I've gone for it, sometimes with better results than others.

Hairy soles/palms/foreheads. I bet neanderthals were really the 'nice' humans, they got iced out cause they weren't cold enough for a homo-sapian world.
