First, anyone who thinks Neanderthals don't walk among us never saw my high school football coach... Sloping brow... Prognathic.... Dull witted and brutal.... But seriously folks.....

Isn't the definition of speciation when two populations can no longer interbreed and produce fertile offspring? Doesn't this new DNA evidence simply show us that we've been one species for longer than the Archaeologists, Taxonomists, Paleontologists and ethnocentrists want to admit?
