I commented on the above article, but it either didn't go through, or Dienekes censored my opinion. So I will state it here.
Basically, I stated that I oppose hybridization between Chimps and Humans; that I believe it has already been done, tragically (in ancient times); and that hybridization is the same as bestiality (forbidden for good reasons, in holy scriptures).
It is quite obvious to me that, like PANDORA, Dienekes' curiosity and lack of either foresight or hindsight has gotten the best of him.

[Nevertheless, his site is obviously a goldmine of info! :)]
UPDATE (April 28): It seems I've been blocked from commenting on Dienekes' blog... Wow, he allows some pretty trashy, opinionated and unscientific comments, but not mine. (Why? Because he disagrees with and doesn't know how to argue with mine? IDK... my opinions must be inconvenient for him to deal with. I also inquired today about the mtDNA profile of the African Zulu tribe, and seems I was blocked right afterwards. Guess I'll have to find out from some other source, although I thought he might know the answer. I know of no other reason why I wouldn't be able to comment, other than that he deliberately blocked me. Oh well, he tightly controls comments (thus information and ideas) on his site, anyway. Not a very open forum there. My comments were totally relevant and courteous, so he must be awfully anal.
(If I'm mistaken about all of this, my apologies to Dienekes, but that's the way it seems.)
UPDATE (again): Apparently now I can get through to at least attempt to comment on his blog; but I doubt that he'll ever approve another of mine after disallowing the last one. I doubt I stand a chance of ever publishing another comment on his blog, I won't attempt it again, after being censored. It's strange, and maybe I'm mistaken, because other people disagree with him about the same subject (see title) -- I guess maybe he just doesn't want to argue my points.
ANOTHER UPDATE (I know I said I wouldn't, but couldn't resist -- he's allowed some real mind cultist to post three [out of only eleven total] very longwinded, unparagraphed comments of pure propaganda on that thread: "apostateimpressions", stating nothing more than his own beliefs [his religion, iow] about ~morality and ~truth. This poster denies that truth or morality have any real meaning -- sounds like Loki ["the world's ugliest troll"] and his ilk. Psychopaths.)
My comment (let's see if he posts this one): "If there is "no truth" or any real "morality"... why bother with science at all? What's the purpose of it, simple greed? Pure curiousity? Scientific experiments and related data has concrete effects on others not involved in 'science' -- on the greater Society which generally FUNDS scientific research. If science can't perform within the framework of some sort of benefit to Society -- we don't need it. Buh-bye, 'Science'."
If "Science" does not benefit the Society / Civilization FUNDING it -- it's then nothing more than a big WASTE of resources.
UPDATE: My last two comments were published, so I feel a bit better now. But I guess I'll never understand why the first one wasn't. That's the problem with censorship... it leads to misunderstandings and confusion.
(Dienekes has quite a bit of material about the Zulus, all very interesting; but I would still like to know more about them and also about the Cherokee and the anthropological / genetic relationships between the two tribes.)
