When We Met Other Human Species



We all belong to the only group of hominins on the planet today. But we weren’t always alone. 100,000 years ago, Eurasia was home to other hominin species, some of which we know our ancestors met, and spent some quality time with.

  1. Some commenters have pointed out that calling Neanderthals and Denisovans “other hominin species” in this episode breaks the rules of the biological species concept (BSC), which says if two things can interbreed, then they’re the same species. Some paleoanthropologists would agree. They consider both Neanderthals and Denisovans to be subspecies of Homo sapiens, rather than separate species. Other experts would say that Neanderthals have a set of features that make them clearly distinguishable from Homo sapiens, putting them outside the range of variation we include in our species. And we hardly know the Denisovans – like we said in the video, they don’t even have a scientific name yet.

    The incredible thing about this is that we can even think about applying the BSC to fossils at all. The BSC is a species concept based on living organisms, and it’s only been within the last two decades or so that we’ve had the ancient DNA and the technology to test hypotheses about interbreeding in extinct groups. And it’s not the only way to define a species, either, so it will likely be a while (if ever) before anthropologists decide whether we’re a different species, subspecies, or population from the Neanderthals and Denisovans.

  2. We are the neandarthals. They did not get extinct. This nonsense theory called out of africa has no basis. Africa has no civilization , all traces of greatest Human civilizations are around mediterranian sea and fertile crescent. Yet the fools insist on something ridiculous because of politics.

  3. Takeaway: If someone looks like you (I.e. same ethnic group), you are too close in the gene pool- RUN don't walk and find someone else to procreate with😉😁

  4. If human kill another human being just because of their skin colour.. What makes you think a different humanoid species will survive our human cruelty?

  5. So, Native Africans, who never migrated and met others, are the only "true" Homo Sapiens. There is more diversity of DNA in Africa than anywhere else in the world…the more diverse, the genetics, the healthier the body.
    The combination of inbreeding and interbreeding, by western man, has diluted the bloodline of "true" humans.

  6. Very nice and very informative. Thank you very much. Of course there is always the 5% that don’t like to hear scientific facts. What do you do let’s laugh.

  7. i love learning about this stuff. it makes me sad knowing that no other hominids are alive anymore… humans are so lonely. id love to have a close relative species 🙁 i wish i could go back in time to meet some neanderthals or denisovans

  8. Even though I already know none of this is 100% accurate; are you telling the people that descendants from Africa don't have any DNA coming from Neanderthals 😬🤫.. Maybe Darwin was right about evolution.. Just not talking about Africa or its descendants.. Neanderthals are cavemen. Very similar to primates. T

  9. If DNA attributes are derived from longevity of one's life (more intercourse) spreading the DNA. Then are modern humans destined to fail if we only pass along DNA through what monetary means we derive in life presently. In short… if a bunch of rich idiots have greater means in life than genius poor population are we destined for failure as a species?

  10. There are interspecies hybrids in nature. Look at Cuora seratta for example that comes from two separate turtle species within two separate genera. The hybrids are fertile too!
