Remains of Possible Neanderthal and Homo sapiens Hybrid Remains Found


Recently discovered skeletal remains in Italy, which date 30,000 to 40,000 years old, are possibly those of a hybrid between a Neanderthal (Homo neanderthalensis or Homo sapiens neanderthalensis) and human (Homo sapiens). The individual's lower jaw is currently being examined, and it seems to indicate a hominin which had a face that looked intermediate between a Neanderthal and modern human. Genetic analysis has shown that this individuals' parents were likely a female Neanderthal and a male Homo sapiens. A rather disturbing theory which the research team has put forth is that the female Neanderthals may have been raped by the male Homo sapiens. Interestingly, these scientists also think that, although these two human species likely hybridized, Neanderthals continued to practice their own culture. The research team will likely reveal more exciting discoveries in the near future, but the information which has been released further enforces the incredible possibility that modern humans may have an ancestry which involved interbreeding with Neanderthals. For more information about this exciting discovery, read here: First love child of human, Neanderthal believed found.

  2. Modern humans are weak, I can imagine being attracted to a muscular woman, I can not imagine any modern human trying to rape a woman who is about twice as strong as he is. Rape happens, but I doubt it in this case.
    Something else: We (well, most of us) have a big brain and a small face with tiny teeth. Heidelbergensis had a slightly smaller brain but his face was bigger, making his eye sockets protude, creating a single brow ridge. Neanderthal had a bigger brain than 'us', but still a large face, making the eye sockets protude, but less, creating two seperate ridges above the eyes. Could be a crossbreed between Heidelbergensis and something smaller, more 'modern' looking.

  3. Actually we are living in rape culture popularized by faminazis. I have read the original paper, interbreeding is proven fine. But there is no such proof given nor analysis given of is there any basis for "thinking" that female neantherdal may have been raped by male homosapiens, just because interbreeding occured. Our inds have been so corrupted by this feminist talk of attention seeking by false fake rape victimhood that we are trying to project the same thing million years ago.
    Interbreeding occurred so it may have happenned that love attraction occured between various homosapiends and neantherdals. The only rape ever happenned was when the rape theory proponent researcher actually born on earth, that was rape of logic.

  4. Given that Neanderthals had larger heads and bone structure isn't it far more likely that Neanderthal females could birth hybrid offspring than visa versa? Also, wasn't the dark skin of humans migrating from Africa a deterrent to vitamin D absorption? This lack of vitamin D made pelvic bone development more vulnerable and therefore giving birth was problematic for ancient African migrants living under much less sunlight. Whereas, if a homosapien male could interbreed with a Neanderthal female their smaller offspring could be easily birthed through the Neanderthal females larger pelvic structure. As for whether or not rape was perpetrated by homosapien males during invasion and conflict--current human behavior is consistent with that likelihood.
