    The problem with that is that Neandertals ARE our species, and so are these other 'extinct' humans. We're all Homo Sapiens, all fully human. And if genes from the 'Denisovans' are still extant, they aren't really extinct in the absolute sense, are they? Some modern humans are obviously their descendants. And all human genes go back to Adam and Eve, who were created by God with a tremendous potential for genetic variation. All the assigned ages included in this study were derived from beginning with the unproven (and unprovable, because it's not true) assumption of millions of years of evolution. The actual data fit just as well, if not better (as usual), into the Recent Creation model.

    Sorry, I just thought the bad 'science' in that post needed refuting. I rarely bother arguing with any lib on matters of pure opinion, because it's usually about as fruitful as trying to reason with a 2 year old having a tantrum.
