    No offense to anyone here, I know that you are all nice people who don't fancy their sisters or cousins. Though we all have that hot cousin that you only see at family gatherings, don't we? Stupid genetics!!:mad:;)

    There's also studies that show that we are all related to Jesus. Pretty cool, methinks.

    Well according to this study, Jesus is related to our Asian dude! :D

    I'm assuming it must be on his mothers side ;)

    It sounds possible.

    To clear things up for some (I think some didnt understand one crucial bit of it) that the people now living are the descendants of a small tribe of people. There were more people living then, but they all died and they dont have any more descendants.
    it might've been caused by some illness, to which these people were immune, while the others werent and died.
    Its like the plague was - only some people, who had a different chromosome could survive it, and all those came from one faulty chromosome - from one human.
    Its what evolution is about - the more immune, the more resistant and the more adaptable survive
  12. And now, for something completely different:

    Yeah, how much did it suck to be Joseph? I mean, being the messiah's step-dad. You can't discipline him, cause all you're going to hear is, "You're not my real dad!!" He'd borrow the keys to the camel and bring it back with a low hump, he'd wear your turban and not clean it before putting it back, and he'd constantly ask embarassing questions about you and Mary, "C'mon, when are you guys gonna get married? This is embarassing."

    However, it is possible that only the descendants of one man had the necessary genes and resistances to survive, while all others have died.

    Yes, thats true. You have to take everything with a couple of grains of salt.
    I'm only saying that this might have happened, and if this happened, there's a logical explanation how this could've happened

    Or 'Noah' - everyone else died in the Flood, so its gets down to one ancestor again ;)
  19. WHAT THE HELL?! That means every other human must have been wiped out 3500 years ago, and you can't jsut be descended(sp?) from one person, it takes 2 people to make a kid. What the hell are those silly scientists on about? This makes no sense whatsoever.
