Interesting article about how humans develop lethal technology to extint other humans.

Who says we are extinct? Just because we evolved and interbred, doesn't mean we are extinct.

So happy to know that some Neanderthals had survived! (smile).

Technically Neanderthals arent human (Homo Sapian)

They are humanoids though I suppose

I think Neanderthals are now considered to be "human." I believe they are classified as "Homo sapiens," and we are now classified as "Homo sapien sapiens." I suspect this is because they believe that Neanderthals and Cro Magnons were capable of generating viable offspring together. Who knows. It's been a while since I've read anything on hominid classifications. But as the article indicates they definately killed each other in very tehnologicqally clever ways.

Latest genetic studies suggest that modern non-African humans have about 3 to 4 percent Neanderthal genes.
