    In #15 you said that the Neanderthals were murdered by “other” humans, when neanderthala aren’t actually human. They descended from the same ancestor but are not the same.

      We share more than a common ancestor with Neanderthals, we interbred with them with something like 4% of our DNA coming from them 🙂 Also although ‘Human’ generally means a modern Homo sapien it is commonly used within science to mean any Hominid with a direct lineage to us, so to some degree it doesnt matter either way 😀

    the liver cannot exactly regenerate itself, but rather, the cells that are left behind, grow in size and take up more function. theres a difference between regeneration and hypertrophy…new cells arent made…the existing cells just grow bigger…
