Fossil ape hints at how walking on two feet evolved
Approximately 11.6-million-year-old fossils reveal an ape with arms suited to hanging in trees but human-like legs, suggesting a form of locomotion that might push back the timeline for when walking on two feet evolved.

Line graph. Americans’ opinions of God’s role in the origin and development of human beings, since 1982.

The latest findings
, from a June 3-16 Gallup poll, have not changed significantly from the last reading in 2017. However, the 22% of Americans today who do not believe God had any role in human evolution marks a record high dating back to 1982. This figure has changed more than the other two have over the years and coincides with an increasing number of Americans saying they have no religious identification.

As many as 47% and as few as 38% of Americans have taken a creationist view of human origins throughout Gallup's 37-year trend. Likewise, between 31% and 40% of U.S. adults have attributed humans' development to a combination of evolution and divine intervention over the same period.

Closest-known ancestor of today’s Native Americans found in Siberia
Indigenous Americans, who include Alaska Natives, Canadian First Nations, and Native Americans, descend from humans who crossed an ancient land bridge connecting Siberia in Russia to Alaska tens of thousands of years ago. But scientists are unclear when and where these early migrants moved from place to place. Two new studies shed light on this mystery and uncover the most closely related Native American ancestor outside North America.

The question is, why do women do it?

We needn’t dwell on marrying up—gold digging everyone understands—but marrying down is another matter. What do women see in the dumb but lovable Neandertals they pick today and in the prehistoric mating game 100,000 years ago? This question is especially important now, because women are making the Neandertal choice more now than ever, and the trends are likely to continue into the future. (...)


 
You are underestimating pure physical attraction and ancient echoes of the strong male provider who fights for the tribe and is a protector.  At the beginning of relationships, the physical and chemical component is the driving factor.  In healthy long term relationships, the focus turns to friendship, compatibility, shared values and character.   Naturally you would assume there are no positive aspects for those males who still exhibit those qualities and deem it pure derogatory and irrational for any woman to be attracted to one such as this.  Now, there are also many women who find serial killers attractive, but I do believe that is a different discussion.....
