"So I was looking at THIS thread about bringing back Neanderthals when I
came to the conclusion that they HAD to be superior, from a racist eugenics point of view....I know. But hear me out...
Neanderthals had larger brains. Their brains were the same size when
infants as human infants but were much larger as adults than homo-
Larger brains almost always correlate to larger intellects and capacity
for learning. It has already been proven that they used the same tools
primitive humans. Possibly having taught US how to use and make them!
They probably had language some experts say and would probably have had
similar vocal chords and language centers in the brain as us.
They were MUCH stronger than us. Particularly in the arms and hands.
They were built more robustly. They could take more damage and endure
conditions due to their constitution.
That leads me to believe they probably lived longer life spans. That
they were more adaptable and that they had a better chance of surviving
Geneticists confirm that the human genetic base bottle necked at one
point during the last glacial period. WE lost most of our population and
reduced to a few thousand. That is a proven fact.
Could it be possible that we survived an extinction level event that
killed off the Neanderthal population which was the more advanced form
sentient life on earth at the time? It is entirely possible for a
biological threat to kill off our entire species and leave only primates
to take our
place. I propose a similar scenario. Not necessarily a viral threat that
killed off the Neanderthals, but a combination of factors. Perhaps they
reduced to what they UNDERSTOOD to be a insufficiently diverse
population to survive, so they chose to interbreed with the slightly
We assume them to be primitive idiots. Really science has had to
reconcile with new facts we have been discovering about them that paint
different picture. They were capable of art, tool making, probably had
language and also music. Everything we attribute to modern humans may
from them. OR they may have shared with us in an act of conformity.
Imagine for a second that our advanced civilization is destroyed by a
prolonged end times scenario. All our advanced tools and equipment are
degraded and being irreplaceable, are eventually lost. Our advanced
knowledge is only transmitted effectively into the first generation
event and less so as time progresses under the circumstances of harsh
primal life forcing an oral tradition light on baggage.
Imagine then the immediate survivors of the event taking refuge with the
tribal cultures around the world that can more easily adapt to harsh
conditions having endured them naturally. A city boy would eat only if
he learned the skills of a "savage". This change in the dynamic of
survival would change the supremacy of the cultural influences. An
advanced culture rich in advanced knowledge would not be appreciated as
much as the
primitive culture rich in survival skills.
In the end a degradation of the advanced culture would take place until
the descendants of the advanced culture were not just genetically
with the inferior group but socially as well. Perhaps a compromise would
have happened and the technologically advanced culture would not just
"dumber" but the primitive culture would also get "smarter".
I argue that this is what happened in part with Neanderthals. They may
have been one of the mythological advanced cultures always spoken of in
traditions. There is always a reference in mythology to a first man, or
several creations of man which we form only the last of in the series.
the earlier versions are punished for being TOO MUCH like the gods. They
had terrible qualities that led to their demise. They were always
with being very great in something or the other, seeing as the gods do,
doing as the gods do, ect...
IMO these earlier versions of man are unmistakably our proto-man
ancestors. Perhaps some have eluded our shovel, but considering that
every couple of
years we discover a new branch on the human genetic tree long dead, I
would say it is entirely possible that one such branch or series of
not limited to primates or derivations there of, whether we have found
them yet or not.
The megalithic structures are colossal by our standards, constitution
and intelligence without advanced tools. Perhaps not so much so for a
strong, super smart and advanced humanoid we mistakenly make wax
sculptures of in loin cloths and with dumb expressions on their faces.
I would like to see the state we are living in if our civilization collapses and remains so for even a few decades.
Perhaps the technologically advanced civilizations we are starting to
come to terms with consisted in part of Neanderthals we know to have
LONG before our version of man came along.
We are pushing the dates back to almost every single structure in the
known ancient world. There are those that stubbornly resist, but science
showing that almost everything has a connection to a megalithic culture
on a global scale. These cultures built these structures globally and
employing either technology or knowledge that has escaped us for its
lack of accurate transmission throughout the ages.
MAYBE the supposedly "dumb and primitive" people with super strength,
more resilient and more hearty bodies as well as LARGER BRAINS built
they are the earlier "man" that was too close to the gods that preceded
