Talk about a truly unexpected discovery. Scientists claim that humans are actually descended from two adults around 100,000 to 200,000 years ago. This possibly happened following a major catastrophic event that wiped out the rest of the species.
Researchers from the University of Basel in Switzerland conducted a study on the genetic ‘barcodes’ of five million animals including humans. Interestingly, they have come to the conclusion that people came from a single pair of beings. In addition to that, nine out of every 10 animal species have been found to come from a solitary pair as well.
The scientists found that human DNA lacks genetic diversity.
So does this mean that the whole Noah’s Ark thing was somehow based on reality? Research Associate David Thaler says he didn’t expect to find the evidence during the study. “This conclusion is very surprising, and I fought against it as hard as I could,” he said.
Senior Research Associate Mark Stoeckle says it might be time to take a different approach when looking into the true origins of humans.
“At a time when humans place so much emphasis on individual and group differences, maybe we should spend more time on the ways in which we resemble one another and the rest of the animal kingdom,” he said.
People believe that a catastrophic event similar to Noah’s biblical tale may have happened in the past.
The scientists also wanted to clarify that their findings don’t necessarily confirm the Biblical stories of Adam and Eve or Noah and his ark. Rather, the discovery confirms that humans need “to revamp far more often than we thought, and we do so in unison with all animals.”
“One might have thought that, due to their high population numbers and wide geographic distribution, humans might have led to greater genetic diversity than other animal species,” Stoeckle said.
“At least for mitochondrial DNA, humans turn out to be low to average in genetic diversity.”
Couple Adopts Baby Squirrel After Mom Left Her In A Man’s Bed
“I don’t know what she thinks she is, but it’s definitely not a squirrel.”
There are so many things that we could find in our beds — a lost earring, coins, hair strands, etc. But one man found something that you don’t see every day in your bedroom — baby squirrels!
Wildlife rehabilitators Christina and Michael are used to strange callouts, but one call was especially unusual. It all started when a man had left his house one day to run some errands. When he returned, he found that a mother squirrel made a nest on his bed for her two baby squirrels.

American Missionary Assaults African Hotel Workers – In The Name Of Christ
“I’ve come to help Uganda, but Uganda hates Jesus through this son of a b***h.”
When you're a Christian missionary, people will always expect you to behave in exemplary ways. After all, you represent your belief by your words and action.
A 69-year-old man from Arizona recently made headlines after displaying a not-so-Christian behavior during his stay at the Grand Imperial Hotel in Kampala, Uganda. As you will see in the video below, he insulted and assaulted staff members and said he's doing it "in the name of Jesus."
