Tooth gives up oldest human DNA
By Helen Briggs, BBC News science reporter

Scientists have recovered DNA from a Neanderthal that lived 100,000 years ago - the oldest human-type DNA so far.

It was extracted from the tooth of a Neanderthal child found in the Scladina cave in the Meuse Basin, Belgium.

The study, reported in Current Biology, suggests our distant cousins were more genetically diverse than once thought.

Their diversity had declined, perhaps because of climate change or disease, by the time early humans arrived in Europe about 35,000 years ago.

Past diversity

French and Belgian researchers isolated the genetic material from mitochondria. These are "power pack" structures in cells which contain their own DNA.

The scientists decoded the sequence of 123 DNA "letters" (base-pairs, or bp) and compared it with other known Neanderthal DNA sequences from specimens dated between 29,000 and 42,000 years old.

"The Scladina sequence has revealed that the genetic diversity of Neanderthals has been underestimated," a team led by Dr Catherine Hanni of Ecole Normale Superieur in Lyon, France, wrote in the journal Current Biology.

"Thus, more Neanderthal sequences than the six presently available and longer than 100 bp are needed to fully understand the extent of the past diversity of Neanderthals."

Disease threat

The findings suggest that genetic diversity was greater in earlier Neanderthal history than in later times, when humans started to arrive in Europe.

Such changes are thought to reflect fluctuations in the population, caused by disease or environmental change, as well as random genetic mutations over time.

"Diversity tells us about how old a population is and its demographic history," said Dr Robert Foley, an expert in human evolution at the University of Cambridge, UK.

Neanderthals lived between 230,000 and 28,000 years ago in Europe, Central Asia and the Middle East.

They were skilled hunters and well adapted to living during the ice ages; but they started to die out after modern humans (Cro-Magnons) appeared on the scene in Europe.

The reason for their sudden demise is unknown, but various theories have been proposed, including biological, environmental and cultural factors.

The DNA studies conducted so far suggest little, if any, interbreeding between Neanderthals and modern humans took place.

...ramblings of importance
last night while being injected full of Red Bull energy drinks, and another different energy drink, i was up all night reading...i found this to be a very good quote from Rael

"These are the religions that governments endorse, but by the same token they try to eliminate the ones that could make the younger generation vibrate with joy when it discovers the truth, which could get them to think of destroying the outdated primitive structures and replace them with newer ones, much more adaptable to the futuristic technological world in which we live."

you have it there...let me put it in words from me, the future comes and people will hold it back, but just like time, the Earth has no where to go but forward...you cannot go back..maybe the government wants us to stay stupified and "god-fearing" by all means of doing so, by lying to us, by holding information from us, and even by forcing religion on us..

he obviously is talking of the governments that try to control their citizens..such as America....the constitution is supposed to seperate Church from State, yet they implicate "under god" in their traditions and they also worship him like it is the only choice..it is the collective mind of America and any government...they try to tell you what is and what isn't....and you cannot deny it...on TV you constantly get "this is hot, this is not, this is Beautiful, this is ugly, this works, this doesn't...buy this and you will be envied by everyone"....our lives in America are so controlled that we do not know the truth of ourselves....there are many posers and fakes....and its because they believe doing something a certain way that is "main stream" will make them accepted....which is very true...

of course, we have those, such as us Raelians, who are dejected by many religious people, who want to cut the topic short by arguing that god does exist and that we should not question his authority or anything he reveals to us...but that is again the sad structure of the government and the Chruch...and including the Vatican....they will decieve and lie to us to protect their structure, which is completelky false, corrupt and immoral...whether they decide to disband and seperate, and then Geniocracy sets it, is up to the future...and as we know, you can go with the future or be left behind....its as simple as that....a signal of a primitive culture is the unwillingness to change, even for the benefit of humanity

"How well do we know what a profitable superstition this fable of Christ has been for us" - Pope Leo X (1513-1521)

"It is an act of virtue to decieve and lie, when by such means the interest of the church might be promoted." - Bishop Eusubius (260 -339)

...mood swings
since we all like music (hopefully) i thought i'd have 2 nice downloads for everyone here...they will make you trip out, and really enjoy what music is developing into today...it shows the new sounds that will be in music to come...its not corporate controled pop music that is made by someone else..this music is authentic and comes right from the singer with the assistance of her dear friends who all listen to what she asks for...Björk is a complete musical genious, no matter who says otherwise, she has proven herself time and time again that she can outdo anyone with her electronic beats

they are in MP3 format:

Björk - Nameless (Bercy Live)

Björk - Nameless (Moscow Live)

they both use Live remixing and beautiful haunting beats that swirl around and repeat so fast they turn into a single sound......the song is about 2 planets that are passing each other, and in a breif moment just pass each other their existance..in a way, Björk is one planet and the technological sounds are the other planet.....this song always gets me mellow and always creeps the family members out, because they have never heard such musical sounds before..

please enjoy them

i just joined, thopught i'd make my presence known to all...mwuahahaha!!!

i became a Raelian just a month ago...after many years since birth knowing something was incorrect about God existing, i finally got up the courage to stop being controlled by the misunderstood teachings of my family, and become an independant, self reliant, individual....no longer do i agree with many of their beliefs, because with the teachings of the Elohim, i have realized the many wrongs that have been done to me in my life......being denied of feelings, emotion, beliefs in anything else than a "god" and such made me into a very broken person.....now i am slowly recovering by staying faithful to the Raelian Revolution, and i am convincing those around me by informing them of the teachings..

i have had this ability that randomly happens...i sometimes predict the future, especially in dreams.....just a few days before discovering "The Message Given by the Extra-Terrestrials" i was having a non-stop thought of "what if god is an alien?...what if we were created from alien beings and we misinterpreted them for being something else?".....then later i got on the internet, and was just looking around about news of UFOs, and it lead me to the official website of Rael...

all i can say now and forward is that i have been honored to learn about the teachings at such a young age so i cannot waste any more of my life on a idiotic, moronic belief in a supernatural presence that "floats in the clouds"

I have twice reducted, on this day at any rate, the majority of people are beginning to lose all cohesion within their reasoning faculties. I am weak to produce an antidote of even remotely rational thought and construction to help with the opposition to this new position we are apparently being forced to counter.

The application of thought must be made clear.

Stop what you are doing; your weakness is making clear your fallibility and I am not going to bother sending out the agents of euthanasian practice to remove from both your sight and mine the swiftly shrinking force of intelligence that is so ardently losing the battle with your wits.

Umm no
No that isnt one of their beliefs, and funny that you would say that, becuase you were stupid enough to choose one thing from my journal that didnt have any spelling or grammical errors. Pitty for u :-/

I can only assume you are immature as well to be as lame as to bring in such things, expecially becuase you had to realize your journal is litterd with it. So im not even going to bother copying and pasting anything.

Earth Girls Are Easy
Earth Girls Are Easy

To all those who stumble upon this little oddity of the web.

Any normal person who stumbles upon the user info for this community will realize that is nothing more than a vehicle for parody.

nothing more and nothing less.

if said Von Klyvor's would like to purchase the account from me for $300 and turn it into a drab respectable community dedicated to something as ludacris as a religious cult that CLONES BABIES and doesn't show any proof... well that's fine.

on that note... i have classes to attend, prostitutes to beat up, and substances to consume....

or i could just go to class and then the gym like i usually do.

Your Co-Founder,

Clip From Von Klyvor's lj
"I use to know this gay guy who was homophobic. Ever scince I found it unethical to hate homophobics. It seemed obvious that it is more an uncontrollable problem, that such things can not be held accountable by the people."

Isn't part of the raelian belief to always use proper sentence structure and spelling?

I was wonder if we could change the following things.

This from the bio

Scientology is for pussies.
and so is oral hygiene.

For one, you never know if a scientologist is going to read that. There ideals are not bad or anything. And The oral hygene comment is just going to make this community look immature.....

Which reminds me, I was wondering what could be done about these from the interests list.

Babies, Bad hair, Bad teeth, Brigitte Boisselier, Heaven's Gate, Not God, Not scientology, Scary females.

They lead me to question your motives for creating this community......

Drug use
Umm, clip from major toms journal :-P

Drank alchohal ::: I've cut down alot.
Smoke ::: yeshha
Get high ::: semi-regularly

Seeing as how it doesnt seem like even the founders dont know a whole lot about rael idealogy. I thought I should point out that raelians do not believe in drug use.

Happyness brought by drugs is fake and inpure, and you shouldnt do them simply becuase you are risking an addiction. Raelians are even agaisnt drinking caffiene. But I admit. I cant give up my coffee :-(. Ill do it later.

/sigh im such a procrastinator

Anyone need a willing cloning specimen?
Here's a link to an open auction on eBay that a friend and I are running. He has decided to sell samples of his DNA for the express purpose of cloning to the highest bidder. Thanks, and please do take a look if you or anyone you know is interested in having a cloning specimen!

as an observer of the raelians, i have a question. is it supposed to be a religion, o0r jsut a way of life.

are there any texts that you live by, rules that you follow, or special things to do.
is there any sort of church or place to go to practice?

Uh Oh
The following story appeared in The Globe Online:
Headline: Little behind Clonaid, files reveal
Date: 4/23/2003

" The fringe scientific group Clonaid, which earned international
notoriety last year by claiming to have cloned a human baby, has no address, no board of directors, and only two employees, according to sealed court documents obtained by the Globe. Yet the group is pushing forward with plans to charge dozens of prospective cloning patients up to $200,000 apiece for its services."

unlike a biased person developing theories based on their prejudices, a pseudoarchaeologist just makes things up.

Just joined, and I figured I was important enough to introduce myself, so there.

That being said, I'd like to make a list of people/animals who shouldn't be cloned.

1) Tom Hanks
2) The platypus (What the hell was that all about anyway?!)
3) Anyone who treats their pets as if they were real people.
4) Confucius (There really should be only one.)

Perhaps you might think of a few more?
