Saw this in the newspaper today, thought it would be interesting for some of you (was for me)
-------------------------------------
"Scientists have finally proved the generations-old theory that all humans can claim a single set of common ancestors.
Most experts have long argued that early Homo sapiens came out of Africa 55,000 years ago, gradually making their way into Europe, Asia and North America.
The only snag in their theory was Australia's ancient Aborigines, who seemed so different from the rest of us it was hard to prove a positive link with Africa. Until now."

Rest is here:

Homo sapiens on the march from Africa wiped out other human species in their path, such as Homo erectus or, most famously in Europe, the Neanderthals.

not only are all humans related by way of a female mitochondrial ancestor... all creatures on the entire planet are related as well

so next time u bite into that orange, realize you are biting into a distant relative from your early eukaryotic past.
