    I wanted to know that who created God? I mean who is father of God?  Homo Sapiens or Neanderthal?

      There's no proof that "Neanderthal" ever existed.
      Nope.  Not even naked ones like in the picture.
      Why don't you use Paint or something and cover up the nudity, please?

        OMG, how hard did you have to LOOK for that nudity Brenda?  I didn't even notice it until you pointed it out.

        Get your mind out of the gutter.

            Believe me or not Brenda, I actually didn't see it until you pointed it out.

            You did.  I'm just pointing that it might say something about where your eyes automatically wander.

              You would of course draw that conclusion.  And actually, it's perfectly normal for people to notice nudity when it's in front of them.  If people think "neanderthal" man existed, I guess they think neanderthal man didn't have enough sense to hide his nakedness, huh?

              The picture is inappropriate.  Especially since I've seen pictures of babies in the womb that got deleted.

                Actually, the conclusion I really drew was closer to Ron's post in another thread..

                Some people secretly enjoy being offended.  They get off on finding something to be morally outraged about.

                I did enjoy you insinuating that I was a liar though.  That was fun. 

                And doesn't the Adam and eve thing say they were naked before they sinned?  Maybe neanderthal was sinless as well. 

                And no, I didn't notice the nakedness on the painting any more than I notice the nakedness on animals.

                  Being offended is far easier than having to provide an evidenced argument to substantiate a perspective.

                  If I deliberately wanted something to be offended about, I could find lots of pictures elsewhere. 
                     If you say you didn't notice it at first, then maybe you didn't.  I apologize.  However, it really wasn't the first thing I noticed either!  So I didn't enjoy your insinuation either.  Especially since I confined my comments to the original post/picture, while you did not; you immediately tried to make it personal.

                    Yeah, I probably did make it personal.  Your comment offended me.

        Um, there is ample proof neanderthals existed, and even that we still carry some of their DNA.

        1. MelissaBarrett profile image60
          MelissaBarrettposted 5 years ago in reply to this

          Actually, our DNA's are similar.  Remarkable similar.  But the current theory is that they are a cousin at best.  Neanderthal man is not theorized to be an ancestor of modern Humans.

            wildernessposted 5 years ago in reply to this

            Depends on how you define it.  That we carry some small amounts of neanderthal genes is indicative that there was probably some amount of interbreeding. 

            In this respect, neanderthal could be considered an ancestor - we are the result of Homo Sapiens mating with Brenda's fake bones and mixing their genes.

              Nouveau Skepticposted 5 years ago in reply to this

              Indeed, not a direct ancestor but that does some to have been some co-mingling

              1. MelissaBarrett profile image60
                MelissaBarrettposted 5 years ago in reply to this

                That would indicate that they were close enough "cousins" to produce a live offspring... that's weird.  Usually even when a subspecies is close enough to mate and produce a living offspring, that offspring is sterile.

                  Yep - "kissing cousins" to a neanderthal. 

                  Guess G'G'G'G' grandpa wasn't too choosy... smile

                  For all we know they could have lived side by side in the same great house.  Lots of intermingling, just most of it was sterile.

        Or maybe Australopithecus.  Lucy must have thought about something.

      There's evidence from at least three caves showing Neanderthals buried their dead and practiced rituals going back as far as 80,000 - 100,000 years ago. They are front runner contenders for the creation of religions as a result.

  2. wilderness profile image95
    wildernessposted 5 years ago

    Neanderthal apparently buried their dead, a religious gesture, and preceded Homo Sapiens, at least in that part of the world.

    They certainly didn't invent the Christian God (that came many millenia later and followed a plethora of other Gods) but it is probable that they had their own Gods.

    jainismus, God doesn't have a father.  God just always has existed, exists, and will exist.  Forever.


    "Neanderthal" is a theory, not a fact.  The idea of neanderthal man was "created" (actually, dreamed up) by someone.  God only knows exactly who dreamed it up.

      Oh, how I love that argument. Christians always say "atheists are so dumb. They think something came from nothing," yet Christians have no problem believing in a deity with no known origins. Hypocrites much?

      Only a die-hard religious person would say something like this. lol

        Brenda Durhamposted 5 years ago in reply to this

        Maybe so.  Because die-hard Christians believe God, not so-called scientists (who are human and therefore fallible.   And some scientists and researchers (and just theorists) sure do believe that most other people are gullible!

          MelissaBarrettposted 5 years ago in reply to this

          Actually, the presence of neanderthal doesn't specifically affect religious argument.  I don't believe they are considered to be a part of the evolutionary chain of humans anyway.

            Really?
            So, "neanderthals" were...what?  just animals, according to what you believe?

              MelissaBarrettposted 5 years ago in reply to this

              I don't really have a belief, because as stated above, I don't care.  I just know what the scientific community says about them.

              I think we can't say if neanderthals existed, just because they, may existed, too many years ago in the past. and if they existed i think they had a God to warship like all the ancient civilizations.

              wildernessposted 5 years ago in reply to this

              Neanderthals were either animals that used fire and cooked their food, made jewelry and art and buried their dead

              or

              God buried the bones there to confuse man and make us believe a fraud.  Perhaps to cause disbelief in Himself and thus have more sinners to send to Hell.

              Your choice...

          "So-called scientists"? Really Brenda? You mean the so-called scientists who brought us modern medicine, communication, clean water, transportation? That's very ungrateful of you. And of course you'd just revert to the "people are fallible" garbage. Do you realize that scientists operate on PROVEN research, that is rigorously tested, re-tested and scrutinized by their peers? Tell me, what evidence do you have for God beyond your blind faith? I believe that bacteria and viruses cause disease because SCIENCE proved it. I believe that the Earth revolves around the sun because SCIENCE revealed it (oh, did I mention the church opposed this proposition when Gallileo mentioned it?). What has the Bible proven? Tell me one contribution that "God" made to the betterment of our quality of life.

          And Brenda, the reason some "theorists" feel people are gullible is because they're QUALIFIED to point out other people's ignorance. Crack open a book about radiometric dating, biological evolution, or anything else that you people deliberately ignore.

      Neanderthals were "dreamed up"? Wow, this must be Inception or something, because we're dreaming those same fossils and artifacts right now. Seriously Brenda, please tell me what you're smoking, because I want some.
