What Really Killed the Neanderthals? (Video)


Unraveling the mystery behind the Neanderthals' extinction has captivated scientists for decades. In the fascinating world of paleoanthropology, theories abound, shedding light on the fate of our ancient relatives. Gibraltar emerges as a crucial piece of this puzzle, with archaeological evidence dating back nearly 39,000 years. But how did the Neanderthals disappear from their vast territories across Spain and beyond? The prevailing notion of our ancestors triumphantly replacing them may not be as straightforward as it seems.

Some researchers propose an alternative narrative, one that challenges the conventional belief of dominance through conquest. As we explore the archaeological layers, a debate emerges: Did modern humans truly supplant the Neanderthals, or was it a case of coexistence and subsequent departure? This captivating journey through time invites us to contemplate the delicate interplay between genetic diversity, changing landscapes, and the fortunes of evolutionary luck. And in our very own DNA, the legacy of the Neanderthals endures, reminding us of our ancient kinship.

Remember Mao? He murdered 5 times more than Hitler and Stalin COMBINED and they were his OWN people. There are right now over 300 concentration (death) camps in China right now! Imagine a mob of rainbow flag carrying idiots protesting communism? Times are changing. But hey at least when they do take over men will no longer be able to compete in women's sports. Homosexuality is punished by DEATH in China. And China will use ALL of North American's coal and oil to power them to the LAST global power in human existence. Black White Brown lives won't matter AT ALL.

Too much is spent on this. 1600 to 1700 Europeans traveling to the new world killed over 70% of native americans that had no natural immunity to their disease's. Another 20% were killed due to relocation and war. Neanderthals were decimated by disease and not likely war since the vast majority of white humans have a bit of neanderthal dna. Explaining why there are white people with straight hair. Including asians. Where are all the full blooded native Americans? 400 years of interbreeding and almost extinct. Imagine finding a full blooded native american 20,000 years from now. Not likely. Very simple what happened to the neanderthal. Now imagine the future of all races that are NOT Chinese? In less than 50 years Chinese will become the worlds financial leaders and ALL non-Chinese people will be enslaved until extinction. And yes there will still be global warming AND global cooling for millions of years. This future is already here. America will lose global financial dominance and next in line is a brutal communist global genocide. But hey no longer will there be issues about race being black v white or transgender Chinese will simply murder all non Chinese males enslave all non chinese women. Sad thing is we can no longer stop it.
