    The Neanderthal theory of autism, Asperger and ADHD

    As a proud Neandertho-American, and Aspie, I take great comfort in knowing that there is a FREAKING REASON for this shit I go through.

    lol

    But all the same, neurotypicals are the really weird ones, not Aspies like me.

    O'well,

    The Neanderthal was more advanced than the sub-Saharan Negro up to around 800 years ago. Humo-sapenian had a bitch of a time getting into europe because of them.

    I dont think Neanderthals were more advanced, just differently advanced. Modern humans seem to have been able to maintain higher birthrates, had better missile weapon skills and technology and could run longer distances and thus traveled more.

    Also, it seems that Neanderthals had developed a patriarchal society at some point and began interbreeding with modern females while modern males rarely mated with Neanderthal women. Perhaps the Neanderthal tribes along the Mediteranean had enough organizational skills to resist modern human migration, but assimilated into modern populations through rape, slavery and having what would have been huge heavy infantry.

    A couple of dissenting voices on the topic:
    Neanderthal Super Predator
    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZbmywzGAVs&feature=player_embedded]Neanderthal: Profile of a super predator - YouTube[/ame]
    Nah, apes have white skin due to fur, and Neanderthal teeth indicate omnivorous diet though mostly red meat.

    Neanderthal interbreeding being doubted
    BBC News - Neanderthal breeding idea doubted
    Funny, these guys hypothesize two breeds of mankind developing side by side from common anceestry then moving out seperate with no interbreeding.

    How likely is it that such close groups would not have interbreeding? Rape from pillage and conquest would seem to register somewhere.

    And what do you do with the hybrid Neanderthals found in Spain and elsewhere?

    Incidence of Autism:


    " - Neanderthals have been found in Europe and Middle-East. Europeans have also mass-emigrated to America and Australia. The Afro-American population in US have a considerably lower autism prevalence than Caucasians, American Indians and Asians. Cro-magnon and Neanderthals coexisted for millenia in Europe. The long hybridization time means that hybridization was unusual, and all hybrids were back-bred into one of the populations. Forming separate hybrid-populations wasn't possible, since it was very unlikely one hybrid would meet another. For this reason, researchers will never find any populations which are morphological mixes. After 3-4 generations, a back-bred hybrid offspring will become indistinguishable from other people Central Asia and later Europe formed the primary hybridization zone. From there both culture and genetic material spread to Far-East Asia, Australia and America. The genetic material did not significantly get back into Africa. The exception to this is the emigration from Europe at the end of the ice-age, the Arabic emigration from Middle East, and the European colonization. Cro-magnon had a high degree of inbreeding, and this is still reflected in a small variation in neutral alleles and mitochondria DNA. This is falsely seen as evidence that Neanderthals and cro-magnon did not mate and produce fertile offspring. The other result of hybridization, larger variation in selective-positive alleles is also seen. Most importantly, many alleles are local, and many of those alleles does not occur in Africa. Another effect of this hybridization is rapid development of technology and art seen in Middle-East and Europe. Later on, the most advanced cultures evolved in the hybridization zone. - "
