They were also able to determine through carbon dating that the neandrethal man also voted for Obama in the last election.
Caveman Joe and the rest all survived for thousands of years. It’s just that when global warming finally occurred...they couldn’t adapt. They didn’t hydrate properly or remove the extra layers of clothing.
Neanderthals are big, strong, macho men who fought face to face against large, dangerous animals.
Pretty sure they would have voted conservative.
The last genome showed that Neanderthals and Humans interbred. But, that reveals something else, which is that Neanderthals and Humans have been the same species all along. The definition of a species is that they are able to reproduce successfully amongst themselves, with the children of that union also able to reproduce without issues.
It’ll be interesting what this new, more detailed genome will reveal.
Well, BIG as in muscular strength... not very tall guys, though.
