Yes, We Should Clone Neanderthals

Five years ago, 454 Life Sciences and the Max Planck Institute started working together on the tedious and time-consuming task of piecing her fossilized DNA back together. Just over a month ago, they succeeded and, in the process, revealed that most of us are between 1% and 4% Neanderthal. To crudely paraphrase the ever artful Carl Zimmer, knowing where Neanderthals fit into the evolution of Homo sapiens is essential to understanding the development of the human mind.

Knowing where Neanderthals fit, however, also creates a problem. What do we do if what makes humans “human” isn’t from a “human” at all? The problem is, of course, that we don’t have a cloned Neanderthal. The argument may seem absurd and offensive at first. As the bioethicist Bernard Rollin points out in the Archaeology piece, there’s more to worry about than the law. Not so. Human Anatomy Model, Anatomy Chart, Anatomical Chart. Science & Nature - Human Body and Mind. Top 10 Signs Of Evolution In Modern Man. Humans Through history, as natural selection played its part in the development of modern man, many of the useful functions and parts of the human body become unnecessary.

Top 10 Signs Of Evolution In Modern Man

What is most fascinating is that many of these parts of the body still remain in some form so we can see the progress of evolution. This list covers the ten most significant evolutionary changes that have taken place – leaving signs behind them. Goose Bumps Cutis Anserina Humans get goose bumps when they are cold, frightened, angry, or in awe. Jacobson’s Organ Vomeronasal organ Jacobson’s organ is a fascinating part of animal anatomy and it tells us a lot about our own sexual history. Gray, Henry. 1918. Anatomy of the Human Body.
