Inuit living in the Canadian Arctic are genetically distinct from any known group, according to new research.

Living in geographical isolation for thousands of years has meant the Nunavik Inuit – a founder population of Canadian Arctic indigenous people – has developed a distinct genome adapted to living in extreme cold on a high-fat diet.

Their closest relatives are the Paleo-Eskimos which lived in the Arctic in complete isolation for more than 4,000 years before dying out 700 years ago, according to the paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America journal.

Judging from their genome, Nunavik Inuit ancestors came from Europe around 11,000 years ago, splitting from the Greenlandic Inuit around 10,500 years before the present.

Dr Patrick Dion from the Montreal Neurological Institute told The Independent: “Over thousands of years this population migrated west to east in Canada to where they are located now and then slowly there’s been a genetic drift and they’ve not mixed much with surrounding populations.”

And yet people still do not believe in evolution. How much more evidence do they need?

Yep. And besides the evidence, there's just common sense -- the majority of animals have four limbs situated around a torso, topped with a head, dotted with two eyes, and a nose beneath that, then a mouth.

They have a heart and a stomach and intestines and livers and lungs, all of which breathe oxygen.

All of them consume organic material and water to survive, and all have a system to eliminate waste, and another system to reproduce, and on most animals, those systems are REALLY CLOSE TOGETHER.

It's common sense to see a link between all living things that have all these traits in common.
