Boney shallow

As you may know, every person on earth share common living ancestors. What you may not know is that ancestor may have lived as recently as 2000 years ago:

When you walk through an exhibit of Ancient Egyptian art from thetime of the pyramids, everything there was very likely created by one of your ancestors — every statue, every hieroglyph, every goldnecklace. If there is a mummy lying in the center of the room, that person was almost certainly your ancestor, too.

It means when Muslims, Jews or Christians claim to be children of Abraham, they are all bound to be right.

“No matter the languages we speak or the color of our skin, weshare ancestors who planted rice on the banks of the Yangtze, who first domesticated horses on the steppes of the Ukraine, who hunted giantsloths in the forests of North and South America, and who labored to build the Great Pyramid of Khufu,” Olson and his colleagues wrote in the journal Nature.

  1. I saw something like this a while back, in regards to the DaVinci code, that basically if Jesus had children then everyone on earth would be a descendant.

    It also refutes the grandiose claims that some people make, such as the guy who recently announced that DNA testing showed hime to be a descendant of Ghengis Khan.

  2. I don’t think it refutes it at all. Rather, I think that there’s probably a good 20 million people in Asia who are descended from Genghis Khan.

  3. 20 million! How the hell did he WALK, let alone conquer people after THAT?! Guy musta had the world’s best chiropractor…
