Any life form dies out because they are outnumbered. They are outnumbered because they are bad at surviving.
There were various factors which played a part as I said.The climate was one big factor. It allowed homosapiens to invade their land and at a time where their populations had decreased as they were adapting to a new climate.If it had been the reverse, the Neanderthals could have wiped out homosapiens.
No because homo sapiens was much more social than Neanderthals. Homo sapiens had necklaces and wristbands to show social status and rank in the tribe. This allowed them to make inter tribal relationships and alliances. Politics is born. Neanderthals are inherently anti-political and isolate themselves from other tribes much like animals. The last remaining Neanderthals were integrated in human society. Thats why the highest Neanderthal DNA in humans is only 5%.
You are wrong. Neanderthals made jewelry, had tribal rituals and were social. They could speak and scientists who have studied them estimate with the amount of brain power they had, a Neanderthal could have possibly remembered every day of its life.They died out due to a dwindling food supply caused by climate change and by a cruel twist of fate, another rival species entered their environment right at this worst possible time which was enabled by the change in climate also.It sounds to me like you need to brush up on your knowledge of Neanderthals.As I said before, if the climate had been swinging the other way, Neanderthals could have been the only surviving hominid species today
No dude, natural selection is not a twist of fate. All attempts to make neanderthals equal or better to humans is false. Its a modern form of lysenkoism.
"Most anthropologists now agree, based on evidence uncovered at 20 or so grave sites throughout Western Europe, that our closest evolutionary relatives buried their dead at least some of the time." from your second link. Its all speculation. Burial rites were not the norm. Science is not consensus based but evidence based. These conclusions are intellectually dishonest.
Actually is years of archeological, geological and paleontological evidence.Natural selection can go one way or the other due to environmental changes.Neanderthals were cold weather animals and their environment warmed up, allowing homo sapiens to movie in. If the cold environment spread to the warmer areas and wiped out homosapiens' food sources then Neanderthals would have increased in number and moved into homosapiens territory wiping them out.It just happened the other way.Neanderthals were smart, used tools, had culture and you had no idea about that since you stated the opposite to be true which it is not, making you wrong.
It's evidence they did bury their dead whichever way you look at it. So you are wrong. Go back to school
Natural selection is the ability to adapt to changing environment. They failed to adapt. Might as well say that there is muh consensus that homo sapiens are gay because at least some of them are. Evidence is evidence, is evidence. The evidence is too weak for us to say that Neanderthals burying their dead is the norm because it wasn't.
Nobody said it was the norm but they definitely did it so to say that they didn't do it is wrong.Not all homosapiens buried their dead either.And I was giving an example of how it could've gone the other way. My words were natural selection can go one way or the other. Not it wasn't natural selection.Pay attention.
Neanderthals disappeared because they are degenerates.
