Neanderthal DNA proves to be a shaky branch on the imaginary evolutionary tree July 13, 2009

Is the Neanderthal the genetic link in the evolutionary tree of homo sapien sapien, otherwise known as modern humans? Not very likely.

In the the newlatter Connections, Fazale Rana summarizes research by Palaeontologists Ian Tattersall and Jeffery Schwartz that refutes the belief that the Neanderthal contributed to modern human evolution–many through interbreeding. Rana presents evidence from a study of Neanderthal and modern human dna that again refutes the connection between human and Neanderthal dna. This research was conducted by David Serre and associates at the Max Plank Institute, and was published in the journal PLOS Biology.

I guess Darwinists will have to find a different tree to climb or at least another imaginary branch. It seems the Neanderthal limb is a little to weak and shaky.
