Re: Off topic. The old halfway distortion again.
You could pretty much do your own google search and take your pick.

I had a couple of guesses at what to search for but didn't find them. Could you supply the first 2 or 3? Thanks.

and Sylas was right.
Site 1:
(http://hackvan.com/pub/stig/news/SCIENCE--neanderthal-DNA-analyzed)

This is a reuters news report. The halfway remark is not a quote of a scientist. It is exactly the kind of report that Sylas said was possible.

Site 2:
(the bigfoot society!!??)

This appears to be another report on the same thing. It also does not quote a scientist.

Site 3:
(http://www.d.umn.edu/cla/faculty/troufs/anth1602/video/On_Trial.html)
Not pointing to the details so one can't tell.

Site 4:

(http://www.psu.edu/ur/NEWS/news/Neandertal.html)

The "i.e. halfway to being a chimpanzee" is yours not the site you quoted. Sylas has pointed out how this error can be made.

Site 5:
(http://www.findarticles.com/cf_dls/m0BFU/11_86/70362289/p2/article.jhtml?term=)

No comment here on the "half way".

Site 6:
(http://www.accessexcellence.org/WN/SUA10/neander797.html )

Appears to be another news report. I don't see any halfway comment.

So that's the bunch of them. They aren't at all the evidence that was asked for. There isn't any primary literature there and no direct quote by any of the researchres. They are simply repeating exactly the kind of error made in the intial reporting.

You seem to be able to use Google but you didn't answer the point Sylas was making. Not at all.

Re: Off topic. The old halfway distortion again.
I'm glad you did post Sylas. I thought I could save you some time but your post is much better than mine (as usual).
