Homo sapiens' sex with extinct species was no one-night stand

Our species, Homo sapiens, has a more adventurous sexual history than previously realized, and all that bed-hopping long ago has left an indelible mark on the human genome. Scientists said on Friday an analysis of genetic information on about 1,500 people from locations around the world indicated at least four interbreeding episodes tens of thousands of years ago, three with our close cousins the Neanderthals and one with the mysterious extinct human species known as Denisovans.
People living on the remote equatorial islands of Melanesia represented the only population found to possess an appreciable level of Denisovan genetic ancestry. These Melanesians, like most human populations, also had Neanderthal genetic ancestry.


Binghamton University molecular anthropologist D. Andrew Merriwether said the researchers also detected a contribution to people's genome from a fourth, unknown source.
"So this paints a picture of probably at least four species of hominins (our species and extinct human species) alive at the same time and interbreeding at times over the last 100,000 years. Definitely not something most people supposed before 10 years ago," Merriwether said.

OH-OH what happens to to the Brahmin lineage, and the brahmin gene (?)?

Prasadji, as you know most Neanderthal DNA remnants are found in individuals from Central Europe and the Middle East. Who knows, maybe they are a contributor to the "Aryan gene theory" that is sometimes espoused here.

Renukaji, there is a possibility that the Devas were aliens, so you may be right. In Hindu lore though, it is not clear if the Devas had children with Manushyas, passing on their DNA. Examples abound in Greek mythology though, for example the parentage of Hercules.

. In Hindu lore though, it is not clear if the Devas had children with Manushyas, passing on their DNA. .

There were 6 of them in Hindu Lore:

1)Karna
2)Yudhisthira
3)Bhima
4)Arjuna
5)Nakula
6)Sahadeva

Ok, you are right. I stand corrected. So what happened then to all this divine DNA? Most of their children got killed right? Any chance any of that made it to the current proponents of "gene theory"?

They were all chatriyas, the "pure Brahmin" gene remains pure and intact. :kev:

Hmm, that is problematic, if the Devas gave their exalted genes only to Kshatriyas. Surely then these Kshatriyas deserve to be worshipped?

But hey Renukaji, I have a good response. Turns out your list was incomplete. Rama and Krishna are also Devas right, since they appear in the Dasa Avatars? If so, they (specially Krishna) had many progeny with Homo Sapiens. We should find and worship them, even if they belong to the Kshatriya and Yadava castes.

Rama and Krishna are not Devas..they are Avatars...higher than Devas.

BTW the Battle of Kurushetra happened in present day Hariyana..may be we should do some DNA analysis of Jaats to find out if they have "Divine" genes..after all there is a saying that goes.
