[Free Courses News]:  DNA from a Neanderthal arm bone considered to be less than 100,000 years old by those analyzing the DNA has turned out to be different in more ways than anyone would have guessed. If you were to analyze the DNA from different races of mankind on the earth today you would find that no race varies by more than eight variations in genetic material from any other race. The Neanderthal DNA, on the other hand, varies from modern human DNA in 27 places. The Neanderthal DNA was extracted from the mitochondrion and should not be easily changed by environmental factors or the extraction process. This does not mean that Neanderthals were a different species, but it does mean that they were significantly different than the racial variations you see in the human population today. Humans who are older than the Neanderthals like Homo Erectus and Rhodesian Man may have been much more varied in physical characteristics than you might be led to believe by most reconstructions seen in textbooks and popular charts like the Time-Life series. Having a broader racial variation among humans than was previously thought possible may seriously challenge the usual evolution of man portrayals of National Geographic, Time-Life, and other popularizers of man’s evolution.–U.S. News and World Report, July 21, 1997, page 9, and Science News, July 19, 1997, page 37 [Free Courses offers this info With Permission from DoesGodExist.Org]
