he partial skulls, unearthed at the Lingjing excavation site in Xuchang, central China, offer new evidence of the behaviour and distribution of pre and early human populations in Eurasia. The new hominid skulls suggest a ‘hybrid’ human, mixed from humans, neandertals and a third unknown bloodline. And it’s largely unexpected.

They display the large brain capacity, lightly-built cranial vaults and modest bone rides on the brow, similar to early modern humans. Moreover, they display a low and board braincase which rounds on to the inferior skull (underside of the skull), as with Middle Pleistocene early Eurasian humans. Finally, they have semicircular structures in the inner-ears and an arrangement of the rear skull similar to that of Eurasian Neandertals.

Put together, these three separate and distinct traits suggest an intermixing of existing human ancestors.

I don’t like to think of these fossils as those of hybrids. Hybridisation implies that all of these groups were separate and discrete, only occasionally interacting. What these fossils show is that these groups were basically not separate. The idea that there were separate lineages in different parts of the world is increasingly contradicted by the evidence we are unearthing.

But are these two new skulls our first good look at a Denisovan?

Whatever their origin, the new skulls paint a much more confused picture than the traditionally accepted one of separate populations living largely independent of each other. It all adds up to a growing rethink of the whole ‘out of Africa’ theory.

  1. Mysterious race ? Simple . Genesis speaks of the fallen angels or nephilim coming to earth and leaving their heavenly realm . They mated with women and produced a hybrid race . They were called demigods or the men of renown such as Hercules. Giants were also the product as well . Goliath , king og and others . It’s not all such a mystery if you are intelligent enough to look .

  2. ever hear of the gap theory?
    Might try that to help explain things rather than thinking all we are are a bunch of smart monkeys.

  4. Yes CGI images. Cause you not allowed to see the evidence. It happens all the time. Same thing with giant bones.

  5. What we read about in Genesis is not about the original creation. The Bible makes it plain that the Earth was already here when the six day creation started. The Earth had to be recreated at the time probably because of Satan’s rebellion that caused devestation in all or most of creation.
