    The Neanderthals could have been Nephilim.

    That just got quicker and quicker as we went along. Even "modern humans" used stone tools for a fair while until moving on to bronze.

    The Neanderthal by comparison used the same tool kit almost unchanged for perhaps 1 million years!. This would suggest a type of mental outlook that was rather rigid and unenquiring and was therefore probably all but incapable of innovation.
    See above, and blame homo erectus or whomever for it. It is homo erectus that I believe is the last common ancestor, then we diverged from the Neanderthal: You then had homo sapiens neanderthaliensis and the home sapiens idaltu existing at the same time, with - if the Out of Africa theory were to be found correct later evolving into "Cro-Magnon Man", i.e. homo sapiens sapiens, or Modern Man, replacing all others.

    However, it still remains possible that the ties are much closer, that being the possible theory that via hybrid vigour (or whichever other theory) Neanderthals and Cro-Magnon intermixed, making sure that relatively few pure specimens of either remained.

    Either way, forgot what I was going to say, will add it when I can remember. Wikipedia had me side tracked.

    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    Since we can't teach him the culture or even the behaviors of a real period Neanderthal, there would be pretty limited studies we could do on one.... other that cutting a couple of live ones open, trying to infect them with illnesses, or something.

    Perhaps we don't know what could come of this. The neanderthals lived for much longer than modern humans so perhaps we could benifit (from a medical standpoint) from their immune systems. Who knows. We make anti-venom from injecting snake venom into horses and harvesting the anti-bodies and such from their blood.

    We should surely research as much as possible but not actually create one.




    I happen to think that the

    neanderthals

    were probably noble creatures, but right now we need to

    resurrect the Netherlandas

    as a matter of priority.

    This is now your

    anagram of the week.




    Jokes about Netherlanders being neanderthals are not permitted.

    Thank you....

    Please add your thanks and give me some rep.

    I don´t think we should resurrect Neanderthals because we have enough problems with Arabs and Blacks, anyway. *fg*

    No seriously, it´d be a bad idea from my point of view. The Neanderthals are gone and we don´t know exactly why. Maybe it has a good reason? Maybe our forefathers had to endure generations of fightings with them until our ancestors eventually gained the upper hand?
    And I think we shouldn´t influence our nature too much. We are only temporary guests here. We shouldn´t arrogate a right to play lord and master over our nature because I´m sure there´s something above us, something higher than us.
    I believe in Asatru, and the respect for the way of life is a very important agenda of my faith!

    The skeletons of Neanderthals are corpses, even after that long time. Corpses deserve peace in death. Scientists who are playing with their remainings to "resurrect" them - well, for me it´s just plain desecration of a grave!

    I think we should try to improve the world for the living instead. Because we, as Europeans and Germanics, are actively endangered along with our culture nowadays. So we should better concentrate on our survival.

    The death ones have done their duty. This counts for the Neanderthals, too.

    Ah yes, but you see there are stone tools and then there are stone tools.
    By about 50,000 years ago homo sapiens had started to diversify their tool kit considerably, they were using several types of throwing spears and harpoons and bone needles and were also making jewelery-beads and fitted clothing.

    The Neanderthal never moved beyond a heavy thrusting spear and flint chips for cutting. They never developed the harpoon or throwing spear nor jewelery nor fitted clothing. For all their toughness and ability to survive they stayed entirely with a Homo Erectus level of technology.
    Close observation may result in feelings of horror, wonder and awe at world you find yourself inhabiting.

    Resurrect them...? If you go to Glasgow (or, in fact many parts of the UK), you'll find they're very much alive and well, or at least, their descendents...
    Love all living things whose humble task is not opposed in any way to yours, to ours: men with simple hearts, honest, without vanity and malice, and all the animals, because they are beautiful, without exception and without exception indifferent to whatever "idea" there may be. Love them, and you will see the eternal in the glance of their eyes of jet, amber, or emerald. Savitri Devi

    Most people I've met from Glasgow are short, thin, pale, dark haired and light eyed.

    Psh.
