As of yesterday’s Oct 29th, Some new evidence was found by scientists that has started to suggest that the people living on the islands of Melanesia could have human DNA the world has never seen.
The theory is that the DNA does not come from a Neanderthal or Denisovan (which are the two ancient species we most closely relate humans with other than Apes). Some Scientists believe that they came from an undiscovered species that derived from the South Pacific, northeast of Australia.
Is there a “new” “HUMAN” species just waiting to be discovered?
Bohlender is an amazing scientist who studies Gene Pools and DNA. He conducted a study looking at humans and how they are linked to Neanderthals and Denisovans. He concluded that at this current point we are not looking at humans ancient history fully.
Naturally, Bohlender is not saying we are not closely connected to Neanderthals and Denisovans but that we have a connection with another species that is unidentified. It is common knowledge that 100,000+ years ago our ancestors migrated out of Africa and were introduced to other humanoid species living in Europe and nearby lands.
We see this through various studies that state we have anywhere between 1.5 to 5 percent of our DNA. As well a study that was done this year linked DNA from Neanderthals to diseases (i.e. Depression, heart attacks, etc.) and that HPV was transmitted between Neanderthals and Denisovans.
With these credible sources, Bohlender estimates that what we know about the history of Neanderthals could be quite different. He states that because of the various things that happened to the Neanderthals and their species timeline there must have been more connections we do not know about.
Only a few teeth, bones and missing links have been found. This does not mean that there is another whole different species waiting to be discovered because we do not have enough proof.
