There are people who sit around and ponder this mythical moment around 40,000 years ago...when Homo Sapiens and Neanderthal existed in some environment. These guys sit and daydream over how the two groups mixed and maxed. Did they fight? Did they love? Did they just learn to avoid each other and not ask questions?
This week...we came to this discovery which thrills the smart guys alot. They've found a third group of human, in the midst of Russia....who existed at the same time of Neanderthal and Homo Sapiens.
It's actually a female DNA sample that came to be part of this discovery....so they've named the lady in question "X-woman".
An entire species....and different.
From Africa? Well...they want to believe it. But you have this hint of things to make you wonder....this bone they found...wasn't in Africa, it was in Russia...near the Altai Mountains (deep in the Siberian region....and closer to Asia).
Miss X? Did she mingle? Did she come up marry Slug the Neanderthal? Did she have an affair with Larry the Homo Sapien. Did she entice Slug to give up his stupid ways? Did she run off with Larry? Or did she just hang out with other dudes of her species? These are the questions that you'd really like to settle but can't.
More species? When you go and look at all of the animals on the face of the Earth....there's likely to be dozens of these groups out there. Some survived and intermingled. And the majority likely died out. There's a story here....but you just can't find the facts to tell it.
