So in your theory did the Neanderthals come from Apes also?
My theory? Humans and neaderthals, like every other species, evolved from earlier versions of their own species, so yes apes going back to a certain point in the past. The line we draw to differentiate between species and groups of species are entirely arbitrary when you include earlier versions of those species because it happens gradually.
Also why is the human species more intelligent then the Neanderthals or is that big misconception?
They had bigger brains but there are many forms of intelligence. My guess is they were technically more intelligent than us but it was in other ways like memory (many apes have a much better short term memory than us) whereas we were smarter.
But the question is how would it be possible that they have a child together naturally? A human can't have a child with an ape naturally.
Humans are apes! The same way a lion and tiger or horse and donkey (mule) can reproduce. Mules can't reproduce with horses or donkies, only other mules. I'm not sure how it works with ligers and tigons, I think it's a bit more complicated.
Well we can atleast agree that Neanderthals or humans didn't come from apes.
We are apes and we evolved from earlier species of apes.
You do not know for sure who or what created what. So you can't positively say aliens have nothing to do with this. You would have to prove aliens didn't have anything to do with what went on in this Earth in the past. And I would have to prove they did. Which is why we have theories but we can't factually say either way.
We can't prove that the universe wasn't created by the flying spaghetti monster. There the possibility that it didn't which can't be proved and the possibility that it did that can't be disproved. These two possibilities do not deserve to be assumed to have equal merit, which is the whole point of His noodly goodness.
You do have to wonder though why all these ancient writings about it though and those that came from the sky.
Not good enough! An interesting possible indication of early contact at best.
How can you say I am wrong when these are all just theories?
You could say that about basically anything. You're just flat out wrong that humans aren't apes, it's an arbitrary categorisation of a group of animals that happens to include us.
If we are still apes why can't we reproduce naturally with them?
The same reason boas can't mate with pythons. They're snakes and even both constrictors but they're different species just like there are different species of apes.
There is one fact though, that we are all mammals but something very interesting is that we have a reptilian part of the brain.
We have a part of the brain that does the same job as a reptile's brain. I think there's basically three layers, reptilian brain at the core (that all mammals have so not really reptilian but it basically all that reptiles have), the mammalian brain that all obviously mammals have but reptiles don't and then the human only bit on the outside.
I'm not sure the info in that paragraph is entirely accurate but I think it is.
If we evolved from Chimps shouldn't we be able to reproduce with them?
We didn't evolve from chimps! How many more times? Current species did not evolve from other current species. All current species had a common ancestor and the most recent common ancestor that we share with another current species we share with chimps which is why we have more DNA in common with them than anything else.
I mean if a dog could think rationally for a minute they might wonder how their got to be so many different breeds of dogs. And if you told them humans did it, they may have a hard time believing it.
Knowing them they're so trusting and adorable they'd believe anything we told them, cats not so much. That's a bit different though, different breeds of dogs are still the same species. That's why they can reproduce with each other.
So I guess we can agree to disagree, but there is no needs to get petty and nasty.. Lets keep it classy..
Good luck with that.
I am always trying to think outside the box.
Why don't you try thinking inside the box too from time to time as well?
I hate it when people butcher that quote. "That which is above corresponds to that which is below and that which is below corresponds to that which is above to achieve the miracle of oneness." What makes you think that's applicable here?
Argumentative and annoying posts will be removed at mod discretion
If argumentative and annoying posts continue a warning will be given of further mod action
But you're the one doing it! Do as I say, not as I do.
So you won't delete my posts, except every post that shows that you are wrong... OK... That's your right (for now), but it kind of shows you know that I am right and you can't defeat my argument..
But it's not very good that you have to delete posts because you can't form an argument to counter it, and I made a statement that shows that you are WRONG..
But I made my case (you deleted it though), but what I said is correct, and it is correct according TO WHAT YOU SAY, so if what you say annoys you, you might want to delete yourself.
I'm done with this debate anyway, I will just declare victory and move on.. (to something interesting).
He deleted your post because it proved him wrong?
Yea, I am still wondering where my 911 thread went.
And they've started deleting posts that they don't agree with, slippery slope.
