And one last link, ‘Adventurous human woman’ wanted to give birth to Neanderthal man by Harvard professor

They’re usually thought of as a brutish, primitive species.

So what woman would want to give birth to a Neanderthal baby?

Yet this incredible scenario is the plan of one of the world’s leading geneticists, who is seeking a volunteer to help bring man’s long-extinct close relative back to life.

Professor George Church of Harvard Medical School believes he can reconstruct Neanderthal DNA and resurrect the species which became extinct 33,000 years ago.

His scheme is reminiscent of Jurassic Park but, while in the film dinosaurs were created in a laboratory, Professor Church’s ambitious plan requires a human volunteer.

He said his analysis of Neanderthal genetic code using samples from bones is complete enough to reconstruct their DNA.

He said: ‘Now I need an adventurous female human.

‘It depends on a hell of a lot of things, but I think it can be done.’

    tbogg: Paul Ryan Is Your New Sarah Palin Now

    Following in the steps of his intellectual forebear (by which I mean former Vice Presidential candidate and future Spanx model Sarah Palin), zombie-eyed granny starver Paul Ryan will now communicate with America via Facebook.
    This will probably be followed by a reality show on TLC, grifting, a unplanned pregnancy or five, a sham wedding, and meth.

    Lots and lots of meth.
