This is part 3 of our special series on Human Ancestry!
Watch the entire series here ►►
↓↓↓More info and sources below ↓↓↓

In part 3 of our special series on human ancestry, we investigate how closely related we all really are. Basic math tells us that all humans share ancestors. But you’ll be amazed at how recently those shared ancestors lived. Thanks to genetic data in the 21st century, we’re even discovering that we really are all descended from one mother.

The Two People We're All Related To

Check out Two Cents:

Due to an odd quirk of genetics and some unique evolutionary circumstances, two humans who lived at different times in the distant past managed to pass on a very small fraction of their genomes to you. And to me. To all of us.

momondo – The DNA Journey

We asked 67 people from all over the world to take a DNA test. It turns out they have much more in common with other nationalities than they thought ...

It’s easy to think there are more things dividing us than uniting us. But we actually have much more in common with other nationalities than you’d think.

At momondo we believe that everybody should be able to travel the world, to meet other people, and experience other cultures and religions. Travel opens our minds: when we experience something different, we begin to see things differently. Share this video, and help us spread the word – and open our world.

Are we all related? Finding the Most Recent Common Ancestor

The most recent common ancestor or MRCA is the common ancestor from where a set of individuals are directly descended. You grandfather is the MRCA of you and your cousin; your great grandfather is the most recent common ancestor of you and your second cousin and so on. In this video I explore the ground breaking work done by L. T. Rohde, Steve Olson & Joseph T. Chang. They created complex models that took historical human migration routes into account to identify the human we are all descended from. The results of their calculations are quite surprising as I explain in the video.

Are we all related? Are we all connected?

Are we all related? Yes, in fact, all life is related. You Are Related to a Tomato! A lot of you know that apes and humans share a common ancestor – so you know you’re related to Bonzo the ape at your local zoo. But did you know that you ALSO share a common ancestor with a Tomato……. yeah…You are related to this tomato!

You may have nieces, nephews and first and second cousins – you are all related because you have the same ancestor – in this case a grandmother or grandfather or great grandparent. Similarly, if you go back enough generations – the ape that you see at your local zoo and you share a common ancestor. But it turns out that our relationship to other living things goes much much deeper than you imagined.

You see…All living things share the blueprint of life – that “blueprint” is a molecule called DNA. This orangutan and I share 97% of our DNA, and this chimp shares 99% of his DNA with me. But you probably already knew that…didn’t you? That we all come from apes – well, to be accurate We share a common ancestor with apes that lived probably about 3-6 million years ago. Just like you and your drunk -- 2nd cousin Bobby have the same ancestor – a great grandfather who lived maybe 100 years ago.

But did you know that we also share a common ancestor with this Tomato!!!!! Truth is…There is only one type of DNA made up of only 4 different types of molecules called nucleotides. And all living things – plants and animals, are based on this SAME DNA. The only difference is the order…or sequence of these bases, that determines the differences in living things.

By sequencing the genes of various organisms, researchers have found that ALL living things – plants, animals share common DNA sequences. This confirms the mind blowing truth that all living things shared a common ancestor. This common ancestor that lived probably 3 to 4 billion years ago, when earth was in its infancy. This was probably a one celled organism. And all the diversity of life on earth today has evolved from this living thing. And do you know that he…or she…or it…even has a name. It’s name is LUCA!!

Yes – LUCA (Last Universal Common Ancestor).

Just close your eyes for a minute and imagine what that means…when you chop down that tree, when you kill a chicken, when you order mushroom on a pizza…you are destroying a distant cousin.

99.9% - Other Humans
98% - Chimpanzees
90% - Cats
70% - Worm
60% - Mushrooms
50% - Tomatoes and onions

So Yeah, we are more closely related to and we share a crazy 60% of our DNA with this mushroom. This mushroom and I share a common ancestor that lived about 1 Billion years ago. It was later that mushrooms and animals like us went on a separate evolutionary path.

Ever notice how eating a mushrooms feels like eating chicken, more than like eating a salad? This is not a coincidence. The next time you order a pizza, just remember, that mushroom you ordered is close to cannibalism, compared to the onions you put on it.

Part 2 of our special series on Human Ancestry. Watch it all:
↓↓↓More info and sources below ↓↓↓

In part 2 of our special series on human ancestry, we ask why we are the only surviving branch on the human evolutionary tree. Just 50,000-100,000 years ago, Earth was home to three or four separate human species, including our most famous cousins: the Neanderthals. New research has shown that Neanderthals were not the brutish, unintelligent cavemen that cartoons make them out to be. They were creative, smart, social, and perhaps even had complex language. So why did they go extinct as soon as Homo sapiens moved into their territory? Does any trace of them live on today? Why don’t we have Neanderthal neighbors?

Creation Story & The Importance Of Dreaming
( Abenaki Legend )

The Great Spirit, in a time not known to us looked about and saw nothing. No colors, no beauty. Time was silent in darkness. There was no sound. Nothing could be seen or felt. The Great Spirit decided to fill this space with light and life.

From his great power he commanded the sparks of creation. He ordered Tôlba, the Great Turtle to come from the waters and become the land. The Great Spirit molded the mountains and the valleys on turtle's back. He put white clouds into the blue skies. He was very happy.He said, Everything is ready now. I will fill this place with the happy movement of life.He thought and thought about what kind of creatures he would make.

Where would they live? What would they do? What would their purpose be? He wanted a perfect plan. He thought so hard that he became very tired and fell asleep.

His sleep was filled with dreams of his creation. He saw strange things in his dream. He saw animals crawling on four legs, some on two. Some creatures flew with wings, some swam with fins. There were plants of all colors, covering the ground everywhere. Insects buzzed around, dogs barked, birds sang, and human beings called to each other. Everything seemed out of place. The Great Spirit thought he was having a bad dream. He thought, nothing could be this imperfect.

When the Great Spirit awakened, he saw a beaver nibbling on a branch. He realized the world of his dream became his creation. Everything he dreamed about came true. When he saw the beaver make his home, and a dam to provide a pond for his family to swim in, he then knew every thing has it's place, and purpose in the time to come.

It has been told among our people from generation to generation. We must not question our dreams. They are our creation.
