Humans and Neanderthals are now believed to have lived alongside one another for as long as 5,000 years.

Quote

A new study involving the most comprehensive ever dating of Neanderthal tools and bones has revealed that, far from disappearing upon the arrival of modern humans, Neanderthals lived alongside our ancestors for thousands of years.

victims of racism, in all probability. just to show how much we have advanced spiritually. and we're wondering why ETs don't come down and say hi.

It always saddens me to learn that our species can not pull together to rapidly annihilate some of our near relatives in the evolutionary Game of Thrones.

I thought this was a common assumption, since bones of both species have been found in the same layers in Europe.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

Neanderthals just turned into modern humans through interbreeding, I know this because when I looked at my late grandfather, I could see he looked very much like Neanderthal. Or you can also look at Ron Perlman- he is definitely a Neanderthal.

We should bring them back. Europeans basically exterminated them like the Native Americans so now we have the capabilities to bring these humans back and live peacefully on the planet. In fact it's our obligation to do so.

On average everybody except Africans has 2% - 4% neanderthal dna in them. I've got quite a few gingers where I live in England so I think it might be 20% here lmao.

I thought that was the case too, how did we manage to out compete with them or interbreed if we did not live alongside them?

This is my take the Neanderthals men were known by bones surrounding the caves to have left their women and children out of the caves to freeze .The homo sapien was a little smarter in order for their species to survive took care of their women and their off springs :)

This is Russian boxingman called "Nikolai Valuev". It is said that he is one of the greatest specimens of Neanderthal genes.
