Interesting that they can use something like a cold sore thats co-habitated with people for thousands of years to confirm human migration patterns because of its evolutionary splits. I wonder how creationists will try to spin it. Lies left by satan maybe?

The important takeaway from this seems to be the confirmation that there was prehistoric (or perihistoric) migration from northern Europe to North America.
