Despite being confused and frightened by our modern world, they probably made great lawyers.

"If a modern human strolled into an ancient cave, we probably shouldn't expect high tea served on a three tiered platter, but who knows? Perhaps we could have found at least a little bit of common ground to discuss. "

And then we would have killed them.

Why we just face the fact that we killed them off and be done with it. Just take a look at what modern humans do to each other today. If you're the same race, but not of the same culture somebody might want to get genocidal on your arse.

We killed them off in a race war. I have even less doubt now.

We aren't supposed to talk about Neanderthal Debate Club

The study strongly suggests that Neanderthals spoke just like us, but can't tell us of what their conversation topics would have consisted. Would they have formed a debate club? Perhaps a salon would have been more to their liking. What would a Neanderthal tete-a-tete be like? If a modern human strolled into an ancient cave, we probably shouldn't expect high tea served on a three tiered platter, but who knows? Perhaps we could have found at least a little bit of common ground to discuss.

The first rule of the Neanderthal Debate Club is, don't talk about the Neanderthal Debate Club.

The could talk like us and they looked like Chuck Norris.  We're being trolled.

Race includes other species now?

I'm a racist for liking dogs more than cats.

Has the debate whether or not Neanderthals were a subspieces of homo sapien  been settled?

Lord Jubjub: Has the debate whether or not Neanderthals were a subspieces of homo sapien  been settled?


I wasn't aware there was ever a debate that homo-sapiens and homo-neanderthalensis might be the same species.  Not among anthropologists anyway.

Even asking the question "Could they speak" seems to indicate an understanding they are a different species.  If they weren't then we wouldn't be asking that question.  That would be like asking "Can Mexicans really speak?'

We used to ask pretty similar questions about african americans.

Remeber the conversations about "negro skulls"

Yep that was the point.  It was a ridiculously ignorant question, right?  So we can only assume contemporary professional anthropologists either a) consider neanderthals to be a separate species or b) are being ridiculously ignorant.

All one has to do is take a long, hard look at Christopher Lambert and know that Neandertals never left us.

Neanderthals, please present your rebuttal.

Well, it's hard to hunt dinosaurs without advanced verbal communication *runs to the other corner of his room while making air liner noise* YEAH! *runs back*

To anyone who spends any time reading the politics tab, the concept of debates between Neanderthals will not be news

That's Gnarly, Man.
