Nearly every claim that article makes about hominin prehistory is wrong; or at best oversimplified.
– The interbreeding event between humans and neanderthals was very limited, probably consisting of a handful of hybrid offspring. Only ~2% of our genome came from them.
– Technology was advancing prior to humans and neanderthals met. The notion of the “great leap forwards” has long since been abandoned by most.
– Whilst neanderthals did eat plants, meat was the mainstay of neanderthal diets. They were in no way vegetarians.
There’s more wrong, but I got bored at this point.
Thanks for your comment. We still consider the theory of evolution, as most things, ‘a work in progress’.
Indeed, we do not yet know all there is to know about life’s natural history. However, that does not mean what we already do know can be dismissed. And what we do know does contradict most of that article.
I see from your blog you have an interest in the subject, we will make sure to come over and read up occasionally. thanks for commenting again.
I hope what I said was helpful in some way
