    Supposedly yes. But, I do not think this to be the truth at all. I'm sure many will disagree with me. Were there really such a thing as "cavemen?" I choose to go by what the bible tells me about this issue.

      Neanderthals, cavemen, and fossils are not even mentioned in the Bible, so what does the Bible tell you about this issue?  Not trying to be snarky, but genuinely curious.

      You have answered the question my friend. There is no mention of them at all.

      The Bible does not mention many things, that does not mean they don't exist.  The books were written at a time when the knowledge of the world was more limited.

    Biologists have found evidence that Neanderthals may have interbred with modern humans of the European Upper Paleolithic, which would mean that humans of European descent may have some Neanderthal DNA.  It is one of many extinction hypotheses; no one knows for sure what became of the Neaderthals.

    I didn't purposely delete your answers. I don't think this is compatible with iMacs.

    I had my DNA done through 23 and Me and I am 2.8% Neanderthal and my son is 3.1%. I am 99.7% European, which, as already stated is where Neanderthal DNA is found. There is also Denisovan ('cousin' to Neanderthal) in Asian DNA.
