Neanderthals / Homo sapiens relationship
if he had done any research whatsoever, he would know that neanderthal is on an entirely different branch of the evolutionary tree than homo sapiens and is not claimed to be a direct predecessor of man.

I'm just a geologist, but I believe things are believed to be not that clear cut. I think at least some think there was some neanderthal/Homo sapiens interbreeding.

There has been a fair number of neanderthal topics including:

Neanderthals and Cro-Magnon - 48 messages.
Neanderthals - 159 messages.
Java Man, Neanderthal Man, Piltdown Man??? - 52 messages.
Neandertal Place in Human Origins - 7 messages.
All in the Family - Guest star: Neanderthal - 87 messages.

I suspect the first one might be the best as it was started by Mammuthus, but I suspect there's also lots of good stuff in the others.


Edited by Minnemooseus, : Change "interbreading" to "interbreeding". I'll keep bakery considerations out of this topic.
