Have you ever wondered if some folk tales are part of an oral tradition about ancient hominids that survived for at least a short time after contact with HSS? Tales of ogres, trolls, golems, yetis, etc seem to be almost universal. We know we had close enough contact to breed with at least two other species of archaic Homo. Maybe those old folk tales are a garbled record of that contact.

Yes and that is all it is. Legends are legends end of. There was a view some time ago that "goblins" were originally children who suffer from Progeria, or Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome (HGPS), a god-awful condition. It is just speculationkbs2244 wrote:Short answer is "Yes"
And not just hominids, but other vary common oral history subjects.
The flood, E.P.s impact stories, etc.
As the common saying goes,
"Where there is smoke, there is fire."
Les légendes sont des légendes finales. Il y a quelque temps, on pensait que les "gobelins" étaient à l'origine des enfants atteints de Progeria ou du syndrome de Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria (HGPS), une maladie terrible. Ce n'est que spéculation
I don't know how many replies you'll get in French.
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.
