Seven Species of Humans

Have you ever wondered why there are 7 days in a week? Is there a natural basis for this? I mean, a day is based on the amount of time it takes the earth to rotate and a year is how long a trip around the sun takes, and a month is an approximatation of a woman's menstrual cycle. But a week? Well, sure the bible says that god made the world in 6 days, and on the 7th day he rested. But what about the godless, the heathens, the pagans, the atheists, the excommunicated, the fallen? Why oh why is the week 7 days all around the world and for everyone?

The answer is that the original number of human species were 7, though the bible won't tell you so. There were the homo sapiens, and the neanderthals. But also there were 5 other species that we know nothing about anymore, though our ancestors surely knew them.

Even though I know nothing about those 5 other species, just like you also know nothing about them, not even their names, I will tell you one thing: they were shorter than us. And if we're not careful to avoid what killed them all off, then we too could go extinct just like them. Just. Like. Them.

"... though our ancestors surely knew them."

In the biblical sense? That would explain a whole lot.

Indeed, it does. If the bible has taught us anything, it is that people are horny.
