By now you may have seen the report that scientists have mapped the Neanderthal genome and discovered that they are our ancestors. (Yeah, like Ron Perlman wasn’t a dead giveaway?!?)

The way the media have reported this is that the separate species of humans and neanderthals interbred and this is proof of evolution. Darwin rules!! Hmmm? I dunno.

Seems to me (and to many scientists) that if some of our human ancestors were making cave babies with the neanderthals, the logical conclusion is that neanderthals were humans too.

Wired mag reports on the findings and says…

After years of anticipation, the Neanderthal genome has been sequenced. It’s not quite complete, but there’s enough for scientists to start comparing it with our own.

According to these first comparisons, humans and Neanderthals are practically identical at the protein level. Whatever our differences, they’re not in the composition of our building blocks.

However, even if the Neanderthal genome won’t show scientists what makes humans so special, there’s a consolation prize for the rest of us. Most people can likely trace some of their DNA to Neanderthals.

Turns out, Neanderthals is us and we is neanderthals.

Scientists are shocked at this amazing finding.

I hate to point out a small slightly embarrassing fact. There is one group of people who have been making just this very claim for some time. Yeah, them. (Shhhh, creationists)

I’m not sayin’, I’m just sayin’.

Look, for sure, even a broken clock is right twice a day. But that twice a day seems to be two times more a day than hardcore Darwinists.

I’m not sayin’, I’m just sayin’.

[Note – I have no fundamental problem with evolution, just evolutionists! So spare me combox defenses of evolution, mmmmkkk?]
