The whole planet's only 6K years old and until recently, was flat. What's wrong with these so called "scientists"??

Philandering has a history longer than humanity.

I'm 1.7% Denisovan according to my genomic analysis by National Geographic. That was one of my ancestors they were investigating.

I think 400.000 years is still a relative short time to create such a complicated "machine" we humans are. And only such a small fraction of the earths existence.

I believe that's quite rare in European populations.

I read that Denisovan DNA was found in East Asians and Southeast Asians, along with Papua New Guinea and the aboriginals of Australia.

3.1% of my DNA is from Neanderthals, which is a little higher than the average European (2.7%).

I need to send my dna in for testing. Judging by my body proportions I must be a good part neandertal....

Only 1.8% Neanderthal here. 17% SW Asian heritage though.

The 23andMe kit is on my xmas list. Looking forward to the data. I have read on some genealogy forums that there are some pretty big discrepancies between results from various tests. Many who are seriously into this form of ancestry research have multiple tests performed from a variety of labs.
