They're usually thought of as a brutish, primitive species.

So what woman would want to give birth to a Neanderthal baby?

Yet this incredible scenario is the plan of one of the world’s leading geneticists, who is seeking a volunteer to help bring man’s long-extinct close relative back to life.

Professor George Church of Harvard Medical School believes he can reconstruct Neanderthal DNA and resurrect the species which became extinct 33,000 years ago.

His scheme is reminiscent of Jurassic Park but, while in the film dinosaurs were created in a laboratory, Professor Church’s ambitious plan requires a human volunteer.

There are a lot of Neanderthal's born every day. Not sure this progeny will be unique - now a Neanderthal woman would be a clever trick.

I don't think Neanderthals were as primitive as they have been portrayed, but bringing them back from extinction? damned.gif

According to the latest, they were interbreeding with us humans. Not so certain this is a good idea, but perhaps we'll find out for certain soon.

If you aren't pure African you are 3% to 10% Neanderthal and other species. Pure Africans apparently don't do well in temperate climates. The heat loss in northern climates (pre-modern clothing) was probably lethal.

Some Micronesian's are a 10% mix of Neanderthal and a Siberian species. Most of us are only 3%.

Neanderthals were stronger and smarter (they had bigger brains) but had some speech problems and couldn't run as fast.

It will be quite interesting to see if this offspring can indeed talk as I've read arguments for and against. I believe the most recent thing I read is they believe they isolated the gene responsible for human speech and clam Neanderthals shared it.
One thing for certain, this will be intriguing, and the what ifs are mind boggling in particular regarding intellect. I hope it's ready for an existence akin to the Truman Show, that's where this will probably head, and with it come some ethical questions.

If we evolved from apes, why are there still apes?

were these some of the 'creatures' who died during the 'flood?' if so, could bringing one back be a human/bad angel hybrid, perhaps a future antichrist? i hope not!

Harvard professor blasts Web rumor
Neanderthal clone story blamed on poor translation


The headline flying across the Internet yesterday seemed too outlandish to be true:

“Wanted: ‘Adventurous woman’ to give birth to Neanderthal man — Harvard professor seeks mother for cloned cave baby,” Britain’s Daily Mail exulted.

And Harvard University geneticist George M. Church, the scientist at the center of the viral vortex, says it was: Way too outlandish, and entirely untrue.

Isn't there a ban on human cloning in the US?

It's not technically human. coffeetime.gif Besides, it's been debunked. Next they will be looking for a woman to birth a baby mastodon.

Would giving birth to a mastodon make you dinosore? damned.gif I think YES!
