We ain't hardly different at all. Bigger brains is about it. And for some of us, not even that.

It's called evolution. It makes more sense and has far more evidence than your wackiness.

Same shit that's been around since the 70's.

I just wanna know... Where do they get these names from? What the hell is an anunnaki?

"Primates have 48 chromosomes, humans have 46. The second and third chromosomes are fused together."
I'm not a geneticist, nor do I spend my free time studying the details of our DNA in depth, so I'll assume you mean that the second and third chromosomes of human DNA are fused together.
That being the case... if two of 48 are fused into one, doesn't that make 47?

Somebody's been reading too much Zechariah Sitchin.
@ Misty: I think the Anunnaki were the original set of Sumerian gods from way back when. According to Sitchin, they were actually the members of a spacefaring race that set up shop on Nibiru/Planet X and came to Earth looking for gold to bring back to Nibiru to shore up their atmosphere or something. They created humans as the primitive workers that would toil away for the gods/aliens when the members of the gods'/aliens' own civilization refused to do it anymore.

Please be "POE".
Some people really really scare me.

IIRC, the "Annunaki" were gods, not ETs, and "Planet X" is a hoax.

Actually, not quite. Human chromosome #2 is a fusion of two (non-human) primate chromosomes.
As for the number, chromosomes are organized in pairs, one from mom and one from dad (this much I'm sure you know). Since they are (almost) always paired, you'll often just refer to pairs as one chromosome. That Human chromosome #2 I mentioned? It's actually chromosome pair #2. 46 and 48 are the number of chromosomes total, 23 and 24 are the number of pairs. Two pairs of chromosomes fused into one pair, so we went form 48 to 46.
