Opening a new thread on “peoples”, “ethnicity” and so on.October 3, 2022 at 1:26 pm #234062alanjjohnstoneKeymasterOctober 3, 2022 at 1:52 pm #234063
Wouldn’t diet have also had a role in Neanderthal extinction? Inhabiting the northern hemisphere in the Ice Age they did not have the varied diet of southern hominids.October 3, 2022 at 4:12 pm #234085MovimientoSocialistaParticipant
I have visited several countries flying on aeroplanes and I have not seen any borders, they are just imaginary, illusions created in our minds, I have seen large sections of empty lands, therefore overpopulation is just another illusion
The only border that you can see is that one between Mexico and the USA and it was built a few years ago before it was completely open to welcome all the wages slaves when the USA was the world commodities supplier
Another border is the one built by Israel and the one created in Spain, and the one built between Haiti and the Dominican Republic and they are fairly new too.
The daughter of Noam Chomsky wrote a book about human immigration and she indicated that when most countries were fully industrialized and they needed wage slaves, the so-called borders were completely open, in Mexico the USA corporations had head hunters officers.
We are just a bunch of fools who believed all the nonsenses spread by our exploiters, and we are the only species over the earth who had to pay in order to survive, the Indians ate lobster, crabs, shrimp, salmon, seabass, turkey and buffalo meat for freeOctober 3, 2022 at 5:55 pm #234096
Considering we all came from the womb, doesn’t anyone ponder as to why most of us have to pay others in order to get heat, food, clothing and shelter?October 3, 2022 at 6:05 pm #234097ALBKeymaster
Did the Neanderthals and these Denisovans come out of Africa too?October 3, 2022 at 7:14 pm #234098
All hominids are from Africa. Of course, new species branched off later. I don’t know when Neanderthals did, but they were, I believe, restricted to the icy northern hemisphere.October 3, 2022 at 7:16 pm #234099

If, as Pääbo’s research confirmed, we and Neanderthals (and Denisovans) interbred why are they regarded as a separate species and not as a sub-species (one of the definitions of “race” as applied to non-humans).October 4, 2022 at 7:44 am #234121twcParticipant
Neanderthals are recognised as a separate species Homo neanderthalensis of the genus Homo.
Since Homo sapiens cohabited with Neanderthals in Eurasia, this arguably makes living Eurasians, and not extinct Neanderthals, minor sub-variety/varieties of African Homo sapiens.
In any case, the overriding socialist position, as always, is that “working men have no country” — Communist Manifesto.October 4, 2022 at 3:11 pm #234143
Why are we not the sub-species to them?October 4, 2022 at 3:15 pm #234145
The nationalist, holding his mother’s hand, and she holding her mother’s hand, and so on in a line of only 500 miles, the one at the end of the line would be a nonhuman.October 4, 2022 at 3:19 pm #234147
Just as people’s “knowledge” of prehistory is limited to a Raquel Welch movie, so they also assume that the nation always existed. I am asked, “What was the flag of Ancient Greece?”October 4, 2022 at 3:28 pm #234150
