Creationist- What is your explanation of Neanderthals if not evolution?

You do understand there isn't a missing link but instead the earliest common ancestor. You wont find something the links us to and apes. You can find where our lines split. Also no your dog isn't closer to humans than Neanderthals.

Aliens genetic manipulation for a slave species. (52% serious)

Nothing they went extinct, though they did interbreed with us. Interesting study came out a few weeks ago saying most abnormal genes we have trace back to Neanderthals.

It IS pretty neat to think about.

Never said that they became human, just that there's evidence of interbreeding between humans and Neanderthals.

I've entertain that thought before, but you would think we would see the remains of the mining operations. I must admit its fun for my sci fi side to ponder though.

You do understand most people agree Neanderthals are not humans, there is some debate though.

So then why do you think they've never returned to be our swiggely overlords?

I do understand that which is why I directed it to people who held the creationism view point. But claiming they were only a different race is false. There is only one Human species and Neanderthals don't fall into that category.

That connects humans to current primates? The earliest common ancestor most people agree is a small skeleton of the first bipedal primate named Lucy.

Most educated people do not believe Creationism to be a legitimate theory either. Remember that. Creation and Evolution as theories of origin have two radically differing viewpoints on almost every single piece of evidence.

Lol. Maybe they had us mine for them and we mined all that they needed?

The term missing link refers to any transitional fossils found. Lucy is an extinct ape.

Please except my apologies. I should not be commenting on this poll. I am not a creationist. I just think evolution is a theory.

Processing: I took that DNA test for genealogy & medical traits. It's pretty wild. The genes are in common w/ Neanderthal & what region. But Neanderthal never became human.

So you believe there was a split from the original Adam and Eve thay created us and Neanderthal, am I understanding correctly?

Rev A. It had some real problems. Rev B was a significant upgrade at the time.

No. I believe it to be a variation more along the lines of Asians, Europeans, and Africans. We are all humans, but we have adapted to different environments and therefore show obvious variations.
