We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Harvard is looking for a woman to bear a Neanderthal child. She might need broad hips. They would probably gain plenty of applicants if the kid were guaranteed admission on a multicultural basis. Might be a threat as a linebacker on the Crimson team too or, given the brain size, a threat on the Chess Team.
I was disappointed that the post the other day about human migration excluded our Neanderthal brethren. They were made in God's image too, were they not?
Global cooling is a real threat for mankind's global future, obviously. One advantage of bringing back our Neanderthal brothers and sisters is that they know how to hunt the coming influx of Wooly Mammoths, as Steyn reminded us today on the radio. At some point, in the Northeast, the dang Mammoths will become pests, rooting around in our Rhododendrons in the snow along with the Polar Bears and those annoying and smelly Musk Oxen.
Paging Dr. Frankienstien, paging Dr. Frankiestien. This monster want to create a human being for the sole purpose using him in exhibit in a freak show, a/k/a Harvard. The child will have no mother, father, or family of any kind this is simply inhumane.
I know it's not polite to speculate, especially if you're a paleo-anything, but where did all those Euro legends of goblins and trolls come from? Neandertals may be children of God, but gracile Homos won, Neanders lost. Seems like God puts us all here, then He lets evolution sort us out. We'd prefer not to look too closely at what happened to our cousins, and if we had anything to do with it.
There are Neanderthals among us and I don't mean that as a insult. If you look at parts of Europe especially areas that were physically or politically cut off from the rest of the world you can see a preponderance of traits and physical characteristics that are surely Neanderthal. The two races intermixed as humans have a tendency to do.
