Now the article below drew my attention at first because of the strangeness of the theory
upon first glance. Once I started reading it the whole thing became pretty interesting.
I almost ran away from the article in the very beginning because the word creationist was brought
up, that is because I know very well that the bible is far from historically accurate and hard line
creationists are basically nuts. I was happy to find that it was not a creationist piece.

About the only thing in the article that came close to being biblical was when they were talking
about the proposed life expectancies of neaderthals. There have been allot of of confusing statements
in the bible and other works of past people living to unbelievable ages and also giving birth at
even other unrealistic ages.

I guess the root of theory is that we are direct ancestors of the neaderthals and that they
themselves had much longer maturity rates than us and much longer lifespans.

It was quite a weird read. I am still not sure what to make of it.

those who live longer take longer to mature, they have more time for it. Now as for second childhood in old age, that is another matter.

Ok, so according to theory the neanderthals heavy browline was attributed to a very long life span. Possibly if we were to live as long we would develop that same characteristic. Today, we resemble young neanderthal and expire too soon. The question is what happened to so drasticly reduce the life span?

nature can only put up with our kind for so long. BobP asks: Today, we resemble young neanderthal and expire too soon. The question is what happened to so drasticly reduce the life span?
Perhaps, we change in a genetic way faster with shorter life spans? like using fruit flies in biology lab classes.

Pictish folks are known to have higher % of Neanderthal DNA than all other races. 8% instead of 3 % on average.
it is the savage in us, why we make good fighters.
