Picture in a picture, forgot the technical term for the effect. It is just more evidence that your mind seeks out patterns instinctively, even when there are none, and sees what you want it to see.
So ... your point?

is that where you got the idea of interbreeding with neanderthals?
It's obvious you hate anything based on fact, but love anything that's based on mythology.

(I'm really beginning to think that all reality might be subjective...and what one would call objective reality, is just a agreement between those who have subjective ideas that are in general agreement...whatever that means.lol)

Africa? That seems unlikely to me. Did they not evolve into the cold climate hardy Neanderthal form after they migrated into Ice Age Eurasia?
That is about like claiming Eskimos started out in the tropics.
I stand by my post.

All you have to do is Google the word 'Neanderthal' and you will have over 7 million pages to check out.

All hominids come from Africa originally.

Below are some excerpts from one of those pages:

“The Neanderthals are a now-extinct species or subspecies within the genus Homo and closely related to modern humans. They are known from fossil specimens dating to the Pleistocene period and found in Europe and parts of western and central Asia. The term "Neanderthal", a shortening of "Neanderthal man", is sometimes spelled Neandertal, the modern spelling of the name of the Neander Valley in Germany where the species was first discovered.

Neanderthals are classified alternatively as a subspecies of Homo sapiens (Homo sapiens neanderthalensis) or as a separate species of the same genus (Homo neanderthalensis).[2] The first proto-Neanderthal traits appeared in Europe as early as 600,000–350,000 years ago.[3] Proto-Neanderthal traits are occasionally grouped with another phenetic species, such as Homo heidelbergensis, or a migrant form, Homo rhodesiensis.

The youngest Neanderthals include the Vindija Cave fossils in Croatia, which are between 33,000 and 32,000 years old. No definite specimens younger than 30,000 years ago have been found, but evidence of fire by Neanderthals in Gibraltar indicate they may have survived there until 24,000 years ago. Cro-Magnon or early modern human skeletal remains with "Neanderthal traits" were found in Lagar Velho (Portugal), dated to 24,500 years ago and interpreted as indications of extensively admixed populations.”

*****

“Genetic evidence published in 2010 suggests they contributed DNA to anatomically modern humans, probably through interbreeding between Neanderthals and the earliest Humans that dispersed out of Africa. This is thought to have occurred between 80,000 and 50,000 years ago, shortly after (or perhaps before) the proto-Eurasians emigrated from Africa, while they were still one population. According to the study as much as 1–4% of the genome of the population that populated Eurasia was contributed by Neanderthals.”

I've also had the same dreams re-occur exactly. It was a dream about that I was looking out the window and saw the planets orbit around me through that window. I think if I remember correctly, it was Uranus. lol
true story (except for the Uranus part)

Me personally? Can't answer that. But you, you hold no interest in the government. You have nothing that catches their eye, so there is no reason to waste the massive resources that are required for tracking you. It's basic economics and logistics, there are 400 million people in the US, we have maybe a few hundred thousand operatives, but most of them are in other countries tracking dangerous threats. You are akin to the ant in an anti hill.

No, mythology is filling in the gaps of knowledge with fantasies and imaginary creatures.

Where you there?
I only agree with Bart Ehrman's works on archaelogy, not on the gospel.
Dr. Ehrman is not the only one saying this, I don't think he is even the first.

Keep denying the fact that we use symbols everyday. It just evolved into LOGOS.
