Recent studies reveal that 400,000 year old bones contain traces of an unknown species. This has caused the scientific community to question everything that is known about human evolution and possible extraterrestrial DNA.
In November 2013, experts discovered DNA from a 400,000-year-old femur. It shows a complex evolutionary pattern in the origin of Neanderthals and modern humans, as it contains extraterrestrial DNA.
The 400,000-year-old genetic material comes from bones linked to Neanderthals in Spain. However, her signature is similar to that of a distinct ancient human population in Siberia, the Denisova Men.
More than 6,000 fossils representing some 28 individuals have been recovered from Sima de los Huesos. This hard-to-reach cave lies 30 meters below the surface in northern Spain.
The fossils were very well preserved thanks, in part, to the cave’s cool temperature and high humidity.
Experts who analyzed the bones said they found evidence of an “unexpected connection” between two of our ancestors.
This discovery could unravel the mystery, not only of the first humans who inhabited the Sima de los Huesos, but also of other Pleistocene populations.
Analysis of the cave bones suggests that these people were closely related to Neanderthals.
But the mitochondrial DNA was closer to that of Denisovan Men, an early human population thought to have diverged from Neanderthals 640,000 years ago.
The scientists also discovered that 1% of Denisova’s Men’s genome came from another mysterious relative, which they called “super archaic humans”.
It is also estimated that some modern humans may have 15% “super archaic” genetics.
Basically, the study shows that the humans of Sima de los Huesos were directly related to Neanderthals, Denisovans, and unknown primitive populations.
One candidate could be Homo erectus, an extinct human ancestor who lived in Africa around 1 million years ago. The problem is that no Homo erectus DNA has ever been found, so this is just a guess.
Theorists come up with some really intriguing ideas. Some claim that 97% of non-coding sequences in human DNA represent the genetic blueprint of an extraterrestrial life form; extraterrestrial DNA.
This hypothesis assumes that, in the past, human DNA was artificially modified by an advanced civilization.
In this case, the super-archaic ancestor of the Sima de los Huesos people could be the proof of this process.
Whether it’s extraterrestrial DNA or an unknown human species, these discoveries only further “complicate” the story of human evolution. Our planet holds mysterious secrets that will hopefully be uncovered in the future.
