If you think about, it might have happened that way.
Apes have 24 pairs of chromosomes but humans have 23 pairs.
And yet we share a common ancestor.

The first 23 chromosome pair hominids probably came from the same family.
I doubt a 23 and 24 chromosome pairing would successfully breed so likely brother and sister.

Nah. The "lost" chromosome is just a fusion of two chromosomes into a single double-chromosome, resulting in our chromosome #2 (ranked by overall size).

A horse has 32 chromosome pairs and a donkey has 31, and they breed just fine. However, unlike ours, their chromosomes don't line up very well, resulting in sterility in the offspring. Having mismatched numbers of chromosomes can cause sterility problems, but it is not necessarily so.

However, because of severe "genetic bottlenecks" in our past, when the total number of surviving pre-humans and humans on the earth was very low, the tribes would likely have been small enough that a high degree of inbreeding was going on, so your idea is not without merit.

And on that note, I'd like to present my favorite "make religionists twitch" argument from genetics:

While I was searching for the above, I stumbled across this on a Christian blog that's somewhat less than generous toward atheism, to put it mildly:

Okay, I get it, you just listed every "bad person" who was ever an atheist. But some of those names confuse me.

Percy Shelley? John Malcovich? Alfred Kinsey? Ricky Gevais? Baron d'Holbach?

Is that the best he could do? I'd be honored to be "in bed with" those names.

And WTF is Jim Jones doing on there, given that he called his church "The Peoples Temple of the Disciples of Christ" and referred to himself as Father, like a priest? I can't think of a person more synonymous with religion.

I had to look up Than Shwe, who is the general behind the military junta in Myanmar. But he does appear to be an atheist (he's apparently some form of communist, so...) and quite a dickhead. But this dude was seriously stretching.

That's because idiots that make shit like that up, believe any lie is worth telling - if it convinces people you've got an invisible friend, who created the universe....

Flirt with radical atheism? Make sure you bring protection??? But then radical atheism won't have my baby?

I just want to know what "radical atheism" is, at least in his mind.

Is it just regular atheism, a la Malkovich and Dawkins, like he thinks all of us are some kind of secular jihadis?

Or is it just a list of people who do things he disagrees with (and with which most of us also disagree, like say mass murder), from the brutal tyrants who set themselves up as gods to the dastardly evil of Kinsey, who dared to scientifically study sexuality for the first time?

And I'm just dying to know what he thinks John Malkovich did that's so bad.

Two chromosomes fused together. We know because one of them has two "end pieces" next to each other right in the middle.

Here is the picture RocketSurgeon found, did a quickish search on xtian history. Not enough to find the many murderous individuals, but enough to find some fine upstanding xtian organisations involve in organised persecution and some xtian pogroms - this is by no means an exhaustive list, I stuck to places with known names:
Iron Guard (Romania)
KKK (US)
Anti-balaka movemen (Africa)
National Liberation Front of Tripura
National Socialist Council of Nagaland
Maronites (Lebanon)
Lord's Resistance Army (Uganda)
Army of God (US)
Christian Identity (US)
Christian Patriots (US)
Hutaree Christian Militia
Aryan Nations (global)
Aryan Republic Army (global)
Army of God (global, mainly US)
Phineas Priesthood (global)
Loyalists (N. Ireland)
Republicans (N. Ireland)

Christian pogroms, anti-Jewish, anti-Muslim, Christian sectarian
York (England 1190)
Hugenots (France 17thC)
Odessa
Warsaw
Kiev
Granada (1066)
Rhineland (1096)
Strasbourg (1349)
Lisbon (1506)
Tsarist Russia (1881 and another later)
Sarajevo (1914)
Antwerp (1941)

This represents about half of those that are listed in sites, mainly Wikipedia

So, nice bunch of guys these Christians!

Later: of course this does not include those acts of the other servants of God, including ISIS and Al Qaeda, or other gods.

Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.

I'm gonna take a page out of the christian handbook and say that those aren't "real" atheists.

Leave it to your imagination as to what the drips of water on the base represent! Think childish toilet graffiti.
