  • RE: The phenotypic legacy of admixture between modern humans and Neandertals

    If this ends up as an elitist way to classify / stratify society I hold you all personally responsible for the ensuing bloodbath. Let every injury be on your collective heads.

    Now that these clowns have gotten wind of it:

    I can clearly see the hate groups frothing at the mouth.
    If you are one part neanderthal.... you're a neanderthal. Where have I heard that before?

    Thanks just oodles and bunches,

    Competing Interests: None declared.
