Hybrid with a Neanderthal mother and Human father may have been found

We were just talking about hybrids yesterday. It’s like Bigfoot Lunch Club is not only on the cutting edge of Bigfoot news, but on the cutting edge of science news too! (Intellectually we know it is coincidence, but let us have this–please.)

This story is quite the buzz among the paleo-antropologist and more generalized anthropologist alike.  Hybridization has been a topic in the Bigfoot community for some time. Dr. Melba Ketchum has even postulated that Bigfoot may be a hybrid between a primitive Homo and a human female. This new find is the opposite. The hybridization occurred through a Neanderthal female and a Human (Homo Sapien).

For us the more interesting aspect is that after the hybridization occurred, the culture of the Neanderthals was maintained. read an excerpt from the Discover News article below.

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.”

By the time modern humans arrived in the area, the Neanderthals had already established their own culture, Mousterian, which lasted some 200,000 years. Numerous flint tools, such as axes and spear points, have been associated with the Mousterian. The artifacts are typically found in rock shelters, such as the Riparo di Mezzena, and caves throughout Europe.

The researchers found that, although the hybridization between the two hominid species likely took place, the Neanderthals continued to uphold their own cultural traditions.

That’s an intriguing clue, because it suggests that the two populations did not simply meet, mate and merge into a single group.Discover News

    I personally could really go for a kinda dirty thickset gal with a heavy brow ridge, handy with a thrusting spear but unable to quite conceive of projectiles. Oh yeah. I see how this happened.

  2. PoeticsOfBigfoot responds:

    DWA, that explains a lot of your previous posts.

  3. DWA responds:

    Actually, it explains both your creativity and your acquaintance with evidence. But don’t we digress? Don’t you think you could actually display some intelligence in a post? Try us.

  4. darkhb responds:

    Any “port in a storm” as they say!

  5. Goodfoot responds:

    Lots of facial hair too, eh, DWA? WHOOO! Hirsute mama, I ain’t goin’ home tonight…
