Sorry Brent, I'm not trying to force the issue or argue, if you simply want to leave it at "agree to disagree" I understand completely as I don't think matters of faith are something to debate over. Nonetheless, I think you might not be aware of the project I am reffering to as you said "the DNA record just doesn't exist". The record does in fact exist and is an ongoing project
This is the observable "proof" I was reffering to and why I consider it more or less a fact. Neanderthal man is another issue entirely and what that is a bit more muddled.
No disrespect intended to your beliefs, naturally
EDIT: Here is the overview of the project if you are interested in learning more.
