Some Pacific Islanders Have DNA Not Linked To Any Known Human Ancestor

A computer analysis suggests that the unidentified ancestral hominid species found in Melanesian DNA is unlikely to be either Neanderthal or Denisovan, the two known predecessors of humankind to this point.

“The continued research of Francis Gerber, Swiss naturalist, whose partilular line of inquiry was that of hominid species that existed parallel to Homo Sapien, this bureau explores the maturation of infected human hosts”

Orangutans are great apes, belonging to the taxonomic family “Hominidae.” Scientists recognize two distinct species of orangutans:Pongo pygameus on Borneo, and Pongo abelii on Sumatra. The Bornean orangutan, Pongo pygmaeus, is further subdivided into three subspecies: P. pygmaeus morio in East Kalimantan and Sabah, P. pygmeus pygmaeus in Sarawak and the northwest part of West Kalimantan, and P. pygmaeus wurmbii in Central Kalimantan and the southwest part of West Kalimantan.

Bonobos are not ordinary animals, mammals, primates, or monkeys! Bonobo is our closest cousin.DNA similarities between man and the Bonobo primates is an incredible 99.5%.Yes, just so, almost the same. Bonobo is more like a man and closer to a gorilla. And just one more thing, do not mix Bonobos and Chimpanzees, as many people do in the dark.Bonobos need only hair, to be homonides.

Human Evolution Timeline - I see Homo Sapiens is not connected to or descended from any other human looking species on this timeline? Why is that? And how exactly did these species produce NEW genes to be able to grow the brain to a bigger size? Mutations and Duplications do NOT grow new genes with new functions.
