The conventional wisdom had been that Neanderthals did not have the capacities or technology that allowed them to capture fast-moving prey.
Why was that the conventional wisdom? Does it not belong to an anthropology that is utterly without evidence and should be classified as wrong, along with eugenics? In order to validate Darwinism (fourth rate, tax funded science)?
Only our own ancestors had these abilities, among them the skills to catch birds. Equipped with a package of skills, which included the exploitation of marine resources, our ancestors spread across the world from their African home following coastlines.
Neanderthals are part of our ancestry. They aren’t a “separate species.”
