Small Tweak, Million Years Ago, Changed Human Brain Forever

The new findings published in the journal Science state how a small tweak a million years ago changed the human brain forever.

The human brain was different in the beginning but then a tweak in the DNA a million years ago separated us from other mammals. The tweak in the DNA is visible in the Chimpanzees even today, and a new study has revealed what happened.

Researchers from the University of California San Francisco revealed that about a million years ago large chunks of the human genome were rearranged. It was a chance event during sperm formation that led to the deletion, duplication, and even reversal of sections of DNA.

The new findings published in the journal Science state that while researchers were able to identify the change in the human genome, they are yet to understand what caused it. The tweak in the DNA further led to cascading changes across the genome that changed human features forever, especially the brain.

Researchers analysed how stretches of DNA called Human Accelerated Regions (HARs) differ between humans and chimpanzees. While it is nearly identical among all humans but differs between humans and all other mammals, most of these genomic sequences are enhancers and control and regulate brain development.

  1. The whole “vaccines are safe” narrative for the past 200 years is actually based on an assumption that all the vaccines are safe.
    There is actually no credible large-scale post-marketing study for any vaccine used in the US today that actually backs up this claim.
    It’s all based on faith in seriously flawed studies.
    There isn’t a credible post-marketing objective epidemiological study for any vaccine in the US. That’s right. Not a single one.
    The whole “vaccines are safe” narrative is built on belief and seriously flawed studies, and not on proper objective epidemiological studies which could have been easily done but were not.
    If we cannot prove safety at the level of <1 death per 10M doses in children, we should not be vaccinating more kids (or adults) until we have done the proper post-marketing safety study on the kids we’ve already vaccinated.
    The fact that no state is willing to do the study but is at the same time still recommending that kids (and adults) get vaccinated should be deeply troubling to everyone.
    It is a symptom of a seriously out-of-control medical community that cares more about following directives from the CDC than patient safety.
    The rationale for vaccinating kids (and adults) is nonsensical.
    The narrative that vaccines are safe is built on belief and/or flawed studies, not on data.

    Me: Death or Injuries and later death by vaccines are self proven, where is the medical proof that vaccines work, or they are just genocide on a major scale?
    Condone vaccines, condone Genocide, until proven otherwise.

  2. God Almighty is our holy Creator. The world is as flat as His Word says it is, generall evolution is a proven lie, etc.

    Seek the Truth in the Gospel of Jesus Christ for “Except a man be born again again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. John 3:3
