Boskop Man - Why Did a Species of Hominid With 150 IQ's Go Extinct?
Who Was Boskop Man?
Story By: Cow Flipper
Who was the Boskop man? Was a late Pleistocene South African man of moderate stature with an enlarged skull some thirty percent larger than a modern humans brain with a vertical forehead, an orthognathous face, and large frontal lobe. He has been described as a separate species (Homo Capensis) but is now commonly regarded as an early strain of Homo sapiens (Modern Humans) and they are the ancestors of modern Bushmen. The Boskop it seems were an ancestral species of modern human being discovered by two African farmers while digging a drainage ditch in 1913 in South Africa.
There are skulls from Boskop which show that their craniums were a bit larger than modern humans with their cranial capacity volume being 1800 ml. There is evidence that shows that these larger skulls were taken from a varied sample of many different skulls of different sizes and were called "Boskopoids".
But lets digress a bit. Imagine an ancient race of humans with larger heads than our own. Their head shape would make them almost look like like children as their craniums would dwarf their facial features. They would more than likely be more intelligent than humans considering the frontal lobes of their brains would be larger than a modern humans. Experts also say that their average IQ's would have been over 150.
Is it possible that Boskops lived with and among humans but that they died off as a result of their intellect. How does that work you may ask, well in a world where brawn verses brain means life or death the Boskops may have been the loser to brawn. The lesser mentally developed man may have been able to adapt to their environment better than the Boskops. Perhaps the Boskops spent most of their time in pursuit of intellectual insights and not enough time reproducing like their less intelligent but highly sexual cousins. It is an idea that with the fossil record can still be debated about. None the less it is an interesting thing to ponder.
But before we set this topic on the to be continued following further evidence track...
What if the Grey alien beings people claim to see are the modern day kin of the Boskops? What if they became so intelligent they developed technology and left for the heavens, went into the earth, built bases under the oceans, or built star gates and worm holes to other places and universes? Could it be that what people think are aliens are just the re-visitation of the Boskops taking a tour of the old neighborhood? Our ancient cousins but now far far evolved beyond our understanding? It's a thought to ponder. Thanks for visiting.
