LOL LMAO ROFL !!!
Perhaps “blame” isn’t the best word here. I am often guilty of poor word selection. Autism was attributed in the first sentence:
“The ability to focus on detail, a common trait among people with autism, allowed realism to flourish in Ice Age art,...”
Well put. In today's anti-religious culture, belief in a traditional, non-new-age deity is certainly not "normative".
I wish I can borrow my dog’s immune system. She has never even caught a cold in 14 years. And she runs around outside strip naked in cold weather.
As I said on another post, a great deal depend on one’s defintion of “autism”. A better more generic term might be “monomaniacal focus” as someone else had said.
Yeah, its funny, they, at the same time enforce ahyper-rigid adhearance to their social language, but promote only the most destructive, self-destructive, forms of eccentricity. It was how the bisexual Emma Gonzales and her cohort could bully the, until his horrible crime, harmless Nicholas Cruz, and be lauded as heroes.
The Neandertal Enigma"Frayer's own reading of the record reveals a number of overlooked traits that clearly and specifically link the Neandertals to the Cro-Magnons. One such trait is the shape of the opening of the nerve canal in the lower jaw, a spot where dentists often give a pain-blocking injection. In many Neandertal, the upper portion of the opening is covered by a broad bony ridge, a curious feature also carried by a significant number of Cro-Magnons. But none of the alleged 'ancestors of us all' fossils from Africa have it, and it is extremely rare in modern people outside Europe." [pp 126-127]

You know, I like to throw in more red meat sometimes.

Ice Ages might explain the presence of homosexual genes, too.
When it was too cold to leave the cave and find Irene, Ogg stayed in the cave and buggered Bob until they found the cold didn’t have to be an excuse.
Thanks for the thread.
This is what I hate about “archeology” today. They find the erroneous need to explain motives and causes behind things for which the motives and causes are clearly unknowable. To claim the ice age cave dwellers were “autistic” is beyond dumb and stupid. Call it a “crime” to archeology.
My pleasure, thanks for all those YouTube vids.
