  •  Neandetals were the first people to bury their (6+ / 0-)

    dead that we know of.

    They extensively cared for people who severely debilitated by injury and illness.  

    In fact, our entire image of them as being excessively stooped and ape like resulted from the fact that the first fairly complete specimen found was elderly and badly hunched over.  

    Which means his group supported him.

    Every human on Earth today has archaic DNA - those of us who have ancestors from outside of Africa within the last 60,000 years all have Neanderthal DNA, and many have a contribution of Denisovan DNA.  People whose ancestors did not leave Africa have another form of archiac DNA from a species or sub-species not yet identified.

    Republicans are just assholes.  Archaic DNA has nothing to do with it.
