The skeletal remains of an individual living in northern Italy 40,000-30,000 years ago are believed to be that of a human/Neanderthal hybrid, according to a paper in PLoS ONE.

If further analysis proves the theory correct, the remains belonged to the first known such hybrid, providing direct evidence that humans and Neanderthals interbred. Prior genetic research determined the DNA of people with European and Asian ancestry is 1 to 4 percent Neanderthal.

This has been a source of speculation for a long time, and that they found something to prove it is cool. Another line of thought was that Neanderthal's preyed on humans for food and that we were essentially forced to kill them off to survive, but I'd much rather that we genetically mated and somehow ended up with humans.

So the sudden dissapearance/distinction of Neanderthals was because of Honor killing? :gun:

Sounds like was more of a case of Neanderthal women being raped than getting together and producing a love child.

Or maybe a Neanderthal man raped a human female. Or a Neanderthal and a human had a secret and forbidden love affair :-O

The genetic analysis shows that the individual’s mitochondrial DNA is Neanderthal. Since this DNA is transmitted from a mother to her child, the researchers conclude that it was a “female Neanderthal who mated with male Homo sapiens.”

Quite a few Homo Sapien males today will bed ugly women after a few pints... :rolleyes:

My cynical side says people male or female will try to tup anything that moves and are often filmed doing it, so neander interbreeding shouldnt come as a big surprise..

That 'theory' has been discussed on UM a long time ago. As far as I remember, it was some artist/creationist who first came up with the idea. He depicted Neanderthals as some kind of evil, flat-nosed gorillas, and anything but human looking.

I don't think beauty standards and tastes were very high  and diverse back then. Probably, "being fit" was the attractiveness criteria.

"Birthing hips" were important to humans around the early 20th century, so why wouldn't it have been that way then? And beauty standards are high now? eew. I am so glad I am not a heroin addict model.

If Neanderthals interbred with Homo Sapiens, then those who are hybrids (as article states- Europeans and Asians) are no longer Homo Sapiens, but a different sub-species. Has anyone given us a name yet?

So your racist remark is referring to Neanderthal females being stereotyped as "ugly"?
