HSN must have known the layout of the surrounding countryside for miles around and known the weather patterns. There obviously were roughly the same types of seasons that we have now. Even during extended icy periods. During the warmer months they could have lived in open areas where there was ample...

Re: Israeli Frauds Tend to be Done Better!

" Further investigations turned up a prayer statue and a stone carving of Jesus believed to be from a church in the Turkish held north, as well as dynamite.”
Maybe they were planning on blowing the rubbish up? Damn police intervention.

So what could their population have been at the time that HSS emerged? Everywhere that you look, encyclopedias or the Internet, it is agreed that the HSN population was very small. If this is mainly based on findings within caves and sheltered valleys etc. how large could it have been if you include...

Roy.
Apart from none? None.
Even large campsites would have been completely eroded away and absorbed back into the natural surroundings with no trace of their passing left.

Start of Religion? A Thought.

I have been having a recurring thought for many years now. Many prehistoric carvings and statues found are of what can only be described as pregnant women. Why the focus on pregnancy? Were pregnant women held in high esteem because getting pregnant and going full term with a surviving infant and mot...

HSS have to play a part a major role (wether it was disease, bred out or a combination of this and other factors (best hunting grounds taken over?)) in the disappearance of HSN. They flourished for millennia and only when HSS emerged did the decline in their numbers begin. One thing that puzzles me ...

Obviously climate change had nothing to do with their extinction. If it were a disease of some sort then it would have to of taken quite some time to exterminate them all, otherwise there would be piles of bones (mass graves?) scattered all over the place. Bred out of existence? Makes sense. Any gen...

It’s a pity that they couldn’t complete the voyage due to the threat of pirates. Maybe they should enlist the help of local governments and try to get some military support? If Ward could complete a successful voyage it would spark more interest in the surrounding regions, which could help in hinder...

So what drove them to extinction? From what I have read extreme changes in the climate seems to be the most popular theory, but seeing as how Neanderthals had been around for hundreds of thousands of years I don’t see how climate changes could be directly responsible. They must have survived through...

One of the most convincing arguments (heavy sarcasm) they could come up with concerning archaeology was the stone slab that was found in Israel; In 1961 an Italian expedition excavating Caesarea Maritima in Israel found this stone slab bearing the name of Pontius Pilate, the Roman administrator who ...

My wife received an Email from the uniting church a little while ago that stated they had "Evidence Outside the Bible for His Existence." It was in the form of a small pamphlet that you could order for free. So I did http://www.ucg.org.au/?offer/jesus-christ-the-real-story In the enquiry section thi...

Some viruses\bacteria are dormant in cold conditions. As HSS were moving into the warmer climates they could have been carrying the disease. Over time as they migrated further south the virus could have manifested itself as just a slight illness which they quickly built up immunity against. We do th...

Min, it could even be simpler than that. Both HSS and HN could have been carrying diseases for which the other didn't have immunity. However, the increasing population (HSS) will eventually overcome the static population (HN) over time. This makes me think of how the plague swept through Europe. Al...

OK. The two groups would obviously had to of had contact with one another over the thousands of years that they both shared in history. They both would have been following the same herds during the yearly seasonal changes, maybe even shook hands, so the chances are that they came into contact with t...

Could it have been a disease that finished them of? Something that Cro-Magnon was immune to but Neanderthal wasn’t. Not necessarily a disease that wiped them out overnight, but something that might have caused a genetic mutation, along the lines of the iodine deficiency disorder mentioned in a previ...
