'Did early Europeans break the big taboo?'

Researchers at deCODE Genetics in Reykjavik, Iceland, have been searching for places in the human genome where chunks of DNA containing many genes get turned back-to-front. One of these inversions, on chromosome 17, caught their eye because it turns up in about 20 per cent of Europeans, yet is rare in Africans and almost absent in Asians. . Karl Stefansson the chief executive of decode Genetics who have researched this genetic inversion, speculates that it may well be the result of human interbreeding with another species of early human about 50,000 years ago. Strangely enough this would coincide with the arrival of Cro-Magnon man on the European scene. Could this genetic inversion be the genetic marker for alien sponsored Cro-Magnon descent as it is described in 'The Song of the Greys'?
The results of this research were published in Nature Genetics, (DOI: 10.1038/ng1508). Apparently these results suggest the possibility that the ancestors of today's Europeans may have interbred with another early human species.
The researchers looked at the families of nearly 30,000 Icelanders. Within this sample they found that women who have the inversion had, on average, 3.5% more children than women who did not . Kari Stefansson, deCODE's chief executive has pointed out that this 3.5% is "a very significant impact when you think of an evolutionary timescale". David Reich, a geneticist at Harvard University., says: "Finding any genetic variant that affects fertility is really startling, and raises lots of questions - like why doesn't everybody have this?". This question becomes even more pressing because geneticists have dated this particular inversion to about 3 million years ago, well before modern humans evolved and 3 million years is plenty of time for such an advantageous trait to spread.
For this reason Stefansson suggests that perhaps the inversion was native to some other species of early human, and came to our own species only about 50,000 years ago. "There aren't all that many ways you can explain it except by the reintroduction into the modern human population," he says. "That raises the possibility it was reintroduced by cross-breeding with earlier species."
This relatively recent arrival would explain why the inversion has not spread to everyone. It would also explain why, despite its age, copies of the inversion in different individuals are remarkably similar. Rare interbreeding events would have brought only one or a few variants into the population. Could this genetic inversion be remarkably similar in different individuals because it is not the result of natural processes but an artificially introduced set of genetic codes? Could this be the Cro-Magnon genetic marker referred to in 'The Song of the Greys':

"What then can we glean about the next experimental group - the Cro-Magnons. This group seems to have manifested a sudden spurt of technological growth that does not appear to have taken place to any extent before their arrival on the scene. It is now believed that the Neanderthal and early modern human groups lived side by side with each other for tens of thousands of years. Yet during that time the modern humans showed no sign that they had superior technology. "Both people were living in the same way, hunting the same prey, burying their dead in the same manner" says Baruch Arensburg, a paleoanthropologist at Tel Aviv University. Then it seems that around 40-50,000 years ago, something profound happened. New technologies associated with modern humans -finer blades and projectile weapons- began to appear. Scientists can only speculate on what triggered this technological spurt. "I think there was a mutation in the brains of a group of anatomically modern humans living either in Africa or the Middle East", says Richard Klein, and anthropologist at Stanford University. "Some new neurological connections let them behave in a modern way. Maybe it permitted fully articulated speech, so that they could pass on information more efficiently." Could this "mutation in the brains of a group of anatomically modern humans" to which Klein refers be the result of alien interception at this very point, alien interception producing the Cro-Magnon form of hominid? Such a sudden burst of technological development at this point certainly suggests the involvement of the ultimate masters of technology - our alien Clones and their Grey roboids.
It is my contention that the Cro-Magnons are the result of direct cross breeding with the ALIENS own genetic blueprint. It was not confined to the re-wiring of the brain alone. It was a whole body interception. The final hybrid species, of all permutations that could be produced with the three main players. The Neanderthals, The Moderns and The Alien Clones. Perhaps this was done a hundred thousand years ago and indeed prompted the huge exodus of humanity out of Africa."
