Study: Neanderthals lived alongside modern man

LONDON, England (Reuters) -- Did Neanderthals and the first ancestors of modern man ever meet? The argument has raged among archaeologists and paleontologists for decades.

Now a group of scientists claim to have proof -- based on radiocarbon dating of artifact finds in France -- that the two distinct groups did indeed share the same space at the same time some 38,000 years ago.

Hold the phone...aren't Neanderthals supposed to be our ancestors? I've always been taught that H. neanderthalensis was an ancient form of a human being, and evolved into H. sapiens sapiens. So they evolved and spawned true human beings, and then stayed around?

If we only had been more sensitive to their needs, they still might be around...

Yeah, then they move into your neighborhood and want to marry your daughter!

Neanderthals are STILL living side by side Homo Sapiens. Just take one look at what's going on in New Orleans, or in Wash D.C. or in Iraq or in just about everywhere you look anywhere.

Neanderthals still DO live among modern man. How else can you explain Teddy Kennedy, Harry Reid, and Joe Biden?

Sure they are among modern man. Haven't you seen the Geico commercial?

Need further proof of the headline?

Consider the fact that Ted Kennedy has occupied space in the Senate since late in the stoned age.

Correct me if I'm wrong in my evolutionary instruction. You see, there is such variability from one evolutionary teaching session to another that it is easy to take what they say as what the current evolutionary theory is.

Of note: Homo erectus 'to' modern man: evolution or human variability?

All the variable forms of homo sapien and other scientific classification are simply that; variable forms of hominoid. Just because one observes variability in a species does not prove it evolved from one creature into another.

By the time I got to college, they were not considered ancestors. DNA studies in the late 1990s showed that H. neanderthalensis was not our ancestor. Homo erectus was.

The consensus would be ... and they still are living among us! How else could Howard Dean scream like that?

Now wait a minute, I thought Darwin's theory clearly demonstrated that it is conservatives (especially neo-conservatives) that are the missing link to the neanderthal/sarc.

Hurm. Hardly a scientific site. If you're looking for reference material, there are many better.

An insult to Neaderthals.

Isn't "Lived" past tense? I believe we still have a few drifting around on TV all day.
