The stunning and otherworldly headline this week was all the rage: “Ancient humans had sex with nonhumans,” said the New Zealand Herald.

There, research done by Omer Cokcumen, of the University of Buffalo, claimed “ancient humans had intercourse with a ‘ghost species’ of ‘proto human.'”

And there’s that bridge in Brooklyn for sale, too.

Actually, a Harvard-trained Ph.D. told WND on Wednesday there was nothing “ghost,” or mysterious at all about the results.

“The basic finding of this study is much less sensational than headlines report,” explained Dr. Nathaniel Jeanson, a Ph.D. in biology from Harvard.

The best selection of research on creation is found at the WND Superstore, including “Biblical Creationism,” “Uncensored: Bill Nye debates Ken Ham,” “The Lie,” “Eden to Evil: The Puzzle of Creation Explained,” and more.

He now works with the Answers in Genesis organization, which runs the Creation Museum as well as the stunning new Ark Encounter.

Jeanson’s degree is in cell and developmental biology from Harvard, where he was involved in adult stem-cell research.

He also published several peer-reviewed papers in secular journals, and his current research involves using DNA comparisons to understand the true origin of species.

He’s contributed to several books, including “The Design and Complexity of the Cell” and “In-Depth Creation Basics and Beyond.”

“In short,” he explained, “evolutionists found a group of Africans with an unusual level of genetic diversity. Because evolutionists assume that all genetic differences are the result of mutation, this finding forced a rewrite of their evolutionary trees, including who bred with whom.

“However, as my research indicates, most of our DNA differences are not due to mutation; instead, these differences were created in Adam and Eve. Thus, no need to invoke ‘ghost species’; these unusual genetic differences are all still part of the human race,” he said.

The earlier report said Cokcumen, an assistant professor, claimed ancient humans had intercourse with a “ghost species.”

He explained humans are part of a species named “hominins,” and his research found humans had sex with other members of the hominins group.

He based that on “wildly different” genes in DNA, and explained those genes can be traced to 150,000 years ago “when ancient humans were breeding with this mysterious ‘ghost species,'” the report said.

Incidentally, the report confirmed “there are no known fossils” of this “ghost species” to analyze.
