Neanderthals: Our Long Lost Cousins

In 1856 in the Neander Valley in Germany a fossil  skeleton was found that had some characteristics that were a little  different than the average modern European. It was seized upon by  evolutionists as a "missing link" between apes and humans. Artists then pictured Neanderthals as stooped over, hairy brutes; apemen.  For over a century books and magazines popularized this view to the point  that the very word Neanderthal has come to mean a substandard human being.  But as is so often the case with evolutionists' stories, the facts are  quite different.

Neanderthals were in fact simply a variation of  humanity in the same way that Europeans, Africans and Asians are  variations of humanity. After studying both Neanderthals and modern  humans, Johns Hopkins anthropologist Christopher Ruff calculated that  there were only trivial differences between Neanderthals and modern humans  and that Neanderthals had, on average, bigger brains than modern humans (New  Scientist February 6, 1999, p. 23). It is facts like these that has  caused even evolutionists to now classify Neanderthals as true homo  sapiens, in the same human family as the rest of us.

A recent find in Portugal has furthered highlighted  just how trivial the differences between Neanderthals and modern humans  really were. A skeleton of a child found in Portugal shows features  similar to both Neanderthals and modern humans (Discover August,  1999, p. 71). This skeleton is very similar to what would happen if a  blond, blue eyed Swede had a baby with a dark skinned, curly haired Zulu.  This combination would lead to some interesting genetic mixing, but all of  the people involved would be fully human.

None of this should come as any surprise to those who  understand the true history of the world. At Babel the families were  scattered and isolated causing individual physical traits to become  associated with specific families. But as different as these ethnic groups  developed into over time, they were still all cousins, descendents of both  Adam and Noah. Neanderthals were simply one or more of the families that had been scattered at Babel. Over time these families developed their own particular traits. For instance Neanderthals generally had short, stocky  bodies, much like the Inuits and Lapps of today, body types associated  with cold climates (Discover, August, 1999, p. 73). This fact is  consistent with Neanderthal traits developing in the post-Flood world of  the Ice Age.

As often happens when evolutionists distort the facts  as they invent their stories, the truth eventually comes out. Neanderthals  were not a "missing link" or some imaginary evolutionary dead  end; they were simply a variety of ancient humans that either died out or  blended back into the human mainstream over time.
