Denisovans are ancient humans whose findings are scarcely represented by DNA extractions of various teeth and a finger bone found in a Siberian cave.
Their claim to fame is largely based on the DNA extracted from these few fragments of human remains. According to evolutionists, they are more closely related to Neanderthals than modern humans.
But their DNA is essentially human, and people all over the world today carry many of the same gene variants found in Denisovans.
According to the data, all humans belong to the same genetic group. This agrees perfectly with true reproducible science and agrees with other studies which show that the current status of the human genome can be no more than 5,000 years.
After a, now scientifically proven, global Flood of about 4,500 years ago, the survivor’s three sons and their wives formed the basis for repopulating the planet. Their descendants led to the 70 people groups comprising the Table of Nations.
As these peoples dispersed from the Mediterranean region across the world, they took their own variants of the human genome with them, establishing genetic lineages unique to their ancestral founding families along with variants of genes shared by other people groups. Thus, it’s not surprising that evolutionists cannot make any sense of this genetic data with their errant timeline and convoluted Out-of-Africa dispersal model.
New research confirms the results of previous studies showing that Denisovan-based regions of the genome are common in Asian people groups and that they interbred with modern humans.3 Interestingly, the largest proportion of Denisovan DNA in the human genome was found in people from the remote islands of Papua New Guinea, a long way from the Denisovan cave in Siberia. Amazingly, these island people also had a healthy dose of Neanderthal DNA.
It is of no surprise that there is no satisfactory evolutionary or logical reason for this anomaly.
