Did neanderthal actually die off or were they just absorbed into homosapiens?

We still retain their dna, meaning they didn't really die off as they live within us

    This THEORY is a bunch of horse sh@t that you stupid people keep buying and not even questioning just because your government ran school text book told you so.

    A theory is just a theory until proven fact and they have not proven this to be fact but keep promoting it as if it is!

    I supposed you believe also the horse sh@t that the world is over populated and there is global warming.

    All these things and other fables are coming froml a government ran sponsor called the Rothschild who own and control everything including what you hear and see on the news they are all lies and disinformation to keep you in the dark as much as possible and dumbed down like with common core.

    The Yeti and saquach etc are alive today. Here is your stupid Neanderthals! Alive to this day!

    Google it yourself and see yeti and saquach up close and personal.

    They died off as a species but the hybrids lived on. All humans except subSaharan Africans have some Neanderthal genes, roughly 2 to 4%. About 70K years ago, we hybridized one time and those hybrids went to conquer other Neanderthals and generally took over the world. Not many made it back to south of the Sahara because there is very little neanderthal genes there. There is evidence of another yet unknown species which Subsaharan African's crossed with. Also East Asians apparently hybridized once more with Neanderthals some time after the initial crossing and we know this because they have slightly higher Neanderthal DNA relative to other groups. Some of the East Asians also crossed more than once with Denisovans.

    They were a race (in the real sense, not the mongoloid/congoid/caucasoid fairytale), and that race is extinct.

    A haplogroup being extinct doesn't say anything about the rest of their DNA

    The Neanderthals died out 27,000 years ago. The exact cause is still debated.

    They were adapted to cold weather living. The first theory is that when the weather warmed, the large animals they hunted were no longer around, so they starved to death. The second theory is that they were killed off by the Cro-Magnon (early modern humans). The latest theory is that the Cro-Magnon were more successful at raising their children to adulthood. In this theory, the Cro-Magnon over populated areas where they both lived, and used up all the food resources, thereby forcing the Neanderthals into starvation, or pushed the Neanderthals into areas where they did starve to death. Interbreeding did take place. Genetic testing has proven that all modern humans, except for Sub-Saharan Africans, have 1 to 4 percent Neanderthal DNA in them.

    If I go to Mexico I tower over the locals.... I'm like a giant to them. If you compared my skeleton to theirs, I'd look like a Neanderthal. The people whose skeletons were found in the district in Germany known as 'Neanderthal' were named after the region: they were humans who died off as a result of cataclysmic flooding 4500 years ago.

    They avoided fossilization (for the most part) because they were cave dwellers. If they were caught out in the open, they would have been buried in tsunami waves and would have become fossils.

    The word 'fossil' means dug up. The word 'dinosaur' came from two Greek words that mean 'terrible lizard'... a word made up in the 1800s to describe reptile fossils.  

    Under the forces of EXTREME PRESSURE everything that was engulfed in mud during the world-wide flood turned into stone. 

    For about a year and a half silica (mostly) permiated plant and animal tissue. The mud also became stone as it compressed under the weight of billions of tons of water. 

    Stone cannot be dated.  

    When a fish or an animal dies it rots, turns to dust or gets eaten... it does not turn into a fossil. Every fossil in the world is the result of the flood. Period. 

    Before the flood everything lived ten times longer - that's why tusks, antlers, fangs, trees and reptiles grew huge. I used to work with reptiles: reptiles NEVER stop growing as long as they live.  

    Pre-flood the air had 50% more oxygen in it. Like a hyperbaric chamber, everything lived longer because of the air quality. We know this because we have air samples from before the flood; extracted from bubbles trapped in fossilized sap (amber).  Adam lived until he was 930. Noah was 600 when he built the Ark (Google Noah's Ark Turkey - a tourist attraction since the 1970's A.D.). 

    Believing in lies about evolution makes you guilty of making God out to be a liar. This is spiritual treason.   

    You've heard of bacteria 'evolving'? No such thing: simply, the hardier bacteria were never killed off by the antibiotic in the first place. The weaker bacteria were. All that's left is 'resistant' bacteria. They were never subject to antibiotics to begin with. They never 'evolved'. 

    PS. If God wants to raise children for Abraham from the stones He can do it. He doesn't need any of us. He can change what is in the blink of an eye.... He doesn't need millenia.

    I am skeptical of the claim that we interbred with Neanderthals. There is no irrefutable evidence to support that claim. Not a single modern human has ever been found with a Y chromosome or mitochondrial DNA that belongs to Neanderthals. Neanderthals last shared a common ancestor with modern humans 500,000 years ago. If we interbred, then at least some humans should have mtDNA and Y chromosomes that date back to that age. The most ancient mtDNA found in modern humans date to about 250,000 years ago, and the most ancient Y chromosomes are from West Africans and they date to about 300,000 years ago.

    Without irrefutable evidence of interbreeding, the similarities in DNA between Neanderthals can be due to contamination (the DNA of the European researchers contaminating the Neanderthal specimens). There is also evidence that a Neanderthal was killed by a thrown spear. Because Neanderthals evolved in woody habitats, they do not throw their spears, but they stab their prey at close range. The spear that killed the Neanderthal entered the body at an angle of 45 degrees, which is the ideal trajectory angle for throwing spears. That angle allows the spear to travel the longest distance possible. It is perhaps the ability to kill Neanderthals from a long distance that allowed modern humans to kill off Neanderthals. Modern humans did not have to engage in close range combat with the physically stronger Neanderthals as a result.

    Modern Olympic athletes can still throw the javelin long distances and they throw it at a 45 degree angle. They inherited that ability from the ancestors of modern humans. It is the secret of our success against Neanderthals in Europe and western Asia, when modern humans migrated out of Africa 60,000 years ago. Modern humans settled in Central Asia for about 20,000 years and then some of them migrated to Europe while others migrated east to northern Asia 40,000 years ago.
