  • We all belong to the only group of hominins on the planet today. But we weren’t always alone. 100,000 years ago, Eurasia was home to other hominin species, some of which we know our ancestors met, and spent some quality time with.Thanks to Julio Lacerda and Fabrizio de Rossi from Studio 252mya for their wonderful hominin illustrations.

    Meanwhile in an alternate universe, Neanderthals are watching videos about why humans went extinct.

    We are the borg. Résistance is futile. You shall be assimilated. I knew that sounded anthropologically familiar. 🤔

    That's Right, it's Wretten in the scriptures. The (Edomite) AKA Cauc-Asian today, is the Ultimate Reason Y we have Confusion Of Faces. You RED bastards sewed your Cursed Seed in EVERY VILLAGE You VULGARarians Raped our Wemen And Men.BTW Edomite Cauc-Asian Thanx for introducing the 1st Acts of Homosexuality

    Back in 2008, National Geographic thought it was quite hard and impossible to trace and evidence that Neanderthals and Homo Sapiens interbred, now 11 years later we have this explanation here. Nice

    @WildWestHikes yes but that's the problem they are highlighting. the problem is how science is interpreted and taught, as well as the flow of funding to certain topics. REAL researchers might admit they don't know things or that their findings only ascertain specific facts or models, but that is not how it is relayed to the general public.

    I guess the real journey was all the friends we reproduced with along the way.

    Yeah, considering the strength of a neanderthal, I'm not convinced all of our interbreeding was voluntary or friendly.

    So exactly why are we different spieces if we could produce fertile offspring?

    thank you Mr Johan, you just asked a question. this is something science cannot allow, please turn yourself in at the nearest institution.

    In my genetics class we learned the reason different species can't produce fertile offspring is because of their chromosome number, they can't do genetic recombination. when animals breed the parents both exchange one gene, and those gene have to line up with the other parents. In species that are closing related like horses and donkeys, the horses has 64 and the donkey 62 chromosomes. The mule will still get a half of the genetic material from each parent but it won't match. I guess that means t...

    It is a sex scandal. Who knew we were not only not pure but we probably had sex with a lot of strange partners

    Maybe they(Neanderthals) just integrated with our species and never really died off at all, we had the numbers so they eventually just become apart of us

    I’m sure many did, but that’s likely only part of the answer to why Neanderthals went extinct. Have low population numbers, and sparsely distributed populations I think are another factor. I’m sure it was a combination of several different phenomenon.
