Sex With Aliens? Hell Yes!
If animals can copulate, they will. It’s not a maybe question. Animals aren’t as picky as we humans pretend to be. You might have as much as 4% Neanderthal DNA. That’s a lot when you consider that the difference between chimps and humans is often stated as about 5%.
About 35,000 years ago, Homo sapiens and Neanderthals lived within shouting distance of each other in France and Spain for, at the very least, a few thousand years. If they mingled, some might have gone farther. There is a skeleton of a boy, found in Portugal, who lived after the last Neanderthals died in southern Spain, whose body seems to be a hybrid, part them, part us.
But the clincher is in your cells. I’m talking about you, you reading this, unless you are 100 percent Yoruba or San (groups that never emigrated from Africa). In 2010, scientists at the Max Planck Institute in Germany, discovered that most humans on Earth, especially if they descend from Europe and most of Asia, carry about 1 to 4 percent Neanderthal DNA in their cells. Proportions will vary. British comedianEddie Izzard, discovered he’s 2.8 percent Neanderthal. You don’t carry Neanderthal DNA unless someone up your family tree coupled with one.
So that’s our proof: that our first encounter with an intelligent alien led to … umm, well … more.
