They were capable of symbolic reasoning and tool use but so were/are we. I guess it's just an excuse to "scientifically" claim that certain groups of white Europeans are superior to everyone else because their ancestors bred with them while replacing them? Seems a little counter-intuitive.

Makes about as much sense as basing your white supremacy movement off of claiming to be descendants of the ancient Iranian nomads who invaded and settled down in India

To be fair the Indian caste system is fundamentally based on skin color, in the sense that the highest caste is the whitest skinned and the lowest caste is the darkest, and since that theory states that Indian social structure is based on these nomads' ideas it makes perfect sense to base a white supremacy movement on claiming to be descended from the original white supremacists.

Neanderthals larynx wasn't as developed as a homo-sapien's so they couldn't communicate as well.
If they were smarter or more clever, the argument is moot because one they're extinct, and two they couldn't talk worth shit, their only option was to interbreed.

We could bring them back but its been deemed pointless and cruel considering they would be cognitively behind us. Some people have larger traces of Neanderthal blood and that blows my mind.

>quoting something I saw on leddit, take with grain of salt:
Time to pick up my calipers.

If you look at historical and cultural evidence of pre islamic india, there is a remarkable desire for dark skin. The reliefs from the ajanta and ellora caves show that the king and his big booty bitches being brown as subcontinental indians are today. The heroes in the Mahabharata are described as dark skinned and skinny and the most beautiful man and woman in the story (Krishna and Draupadi) are literally named as the dark ones. Meanwhile the whitest guy in the story Pandu is a stallion who gets a magical chastity belt put on him and has to raise his wife's sons in a forest before he kills himself by trying to bone his second wife.

Then there is also reference to turkic islamic invaders being compared to lepers on account of their paler skin.

Neanderthals had bigger brains. That's why some scientists think they were smarter.

Then again, Neanderthals had absolutely no tech and culture advancement, they'd settle somewhere, advance culturally and technologically incredibly fast and plateau until humans would come along, and they'd learn to use human technology and culture.

So if they were smarter, they were probably autistic, or like idiot savants.

IIRC they might have had more complex tools then us.
Also art was a thing for them

It's too bad everything from that era is so vage, i'd love to know the true state of the neanderthals.

They started out with more complex tools than us. However, we humans don't just plateau on technology. We just keep improving and improving and improving until we create global warming and kill ourselves.

Having huge brains means nothing when you're too retarded to fucking keep advancing your technology.

People project onto what they're seeing which tells you more about their given world-view. The more comfortable example would be in how insect colonies were traditionally imagined as monarchies because that is what people saw in their own world.

>Then again, Neanderthals had absolutely no tech and culture advancement, they'd settle somewhere, advance culturally and technologically incredibly fast and plateau until humans would come along

That's been the general rule for human's across history as well, at the very least whenever an isolated people get comfortable. Many cases exist of communities even forgetting technology like shipbuilding after arrival on some island paradise.

Sure, it might seem only logical to us to aim for limitless technological progress when we can see the benefits but that pace didn't exist pre-enlightenment.

Yeah what this guy's saying, technology is developed to solve problems and if there's no problems there's no need. Neanderthals were comfortable in their ecological niche, with secure settlements and stable food sources, devoting their time and energy into cultural pursuits like this guy >>57540 pointed out. Then they suddenly had to start competing for these settlement sites and food sources with more vocal, socially coordinated Homo Sapiens and they got outnumbered and absorbed. It's not like the Humans had level 3 clubs that overpowered the Neanderthals level 2 rocks.

The Neanderthals were neurotypical for their time, but when a smaller wimpier autistic breed was born, the neanderthals found the females less challenging due to their inferior genetics, and the result was what would eventually become homo sapiens.

There were no antipsychotics to give the mutant-brained children in those days to keep them mellow when they couldn't handle the barbarian social climate of the era, so the weird kids would throw fits with the better tools they made, and they'd shoot up neanderthal rape-orgies with autism spears, thus preserving the socially and physically diminutive mutant women for the finicky little mutant men.

It's not like modern day spergs, which are a further degeneration of the degeneration. These ones are prehistoric, so their personalities were like what's typical today. It was only autistic in comparison to the previous majority. And they were seen by that majority in the same way that today's majority sees today's mutants.

This time it's not going to take, because of the disinformation system that labels it with the word "autism". It's intentionally misleading, but it's presented as a medical fact by the establishment, which wants hurly burly warriors and ditzy nurses to run free while the wordy kids are sedated and taught to believe themselves retarded.

The mutes who can't dress themselves are at one end of the supposed spectrum. The kids who talk too much are at the other. That's what I'm talking about about the word autism being the wrong word, but it's the word the medical community uses. They do it so that the nerdy kids feel retarded so they won't go feeling superior.

IIRC, Neanderthals possessed a much better memory than Homo Sapiens, due to a large brain (specifically in the area that governs memory). What this meant in practice is that a neanderthal would never have to navigate their route by the stars or by trail markers; they just knew the exact way they had come. Homo sapiens, by contrast possess a much greater capability for creativity, which allowed us to be more innovative.

For instance, a neanderthal would be able to remember the exact placement of food stocks or firewood after a heavy snowfall, without having to dig around for them. A homo sapien would be able to create things to prevent useful items from being buried by snow.

Neanderthals used fire, tools, and had cultural burial practices, but little art.

No one ever talks about how Homo Erectus was faster and stronger than modern humans and were the dominant species of mankind for a couple of million years. We coexisted with them and they could have crushed us, had they been smarter.

based on where they found it, in a site with neanderthal bones or with tools and other material goods that we associate with neanderthal sites, and vice versa

like you'd expect there's a lot of debate over it, there are more than a few controversial supposed neanderthal works of art that aren't generally accepted as either neanderthal or art by most experts
