Help a woman owned, small business stay in business. And help a family through difficult times.
Scientists have discovered.
A sea change coming.
Scientists have discovered a finger bone in cave in Siberia. They say that this bone is 30 to 40 thousand years old. At that time, Modern Humans and Neanderthal Man lived in the area, in close proximity to one another.
The bone is human. But it is neither Modern Human nor Neanderthal. Mitochondrial DNA analysis says that the bone belongs to a species of human that would have left Africa a million years ago. After the ancestor of Neanderthal. And before the rise of Modern Humans.
So all of that is pretty cool, right? Wait. What follows is MY speculation - there is nothing but MY opinion that this is possible, to support it.
In the U.S. there are the "Sasquatch". In China there are the "Yeren". In Russia there are the "Alma". In the Himalaya there are the "Yeti".
The 'wildmen', up until now, have been pretty much poo-pooed by scientists. After all, there has never been any record of any other hominin besides Moderns and Neanderthals surviving long enough to live together 40,000 years ago. Until now. Apparently, 40,000 years ago there was a third species of human living in Siberia.
And if they were there then ...
