What about neanderthals?

8 Jul

Just a quick thought:

I wonder if religious people ever consider the fact that there were around 13 other species of humans that we have hard evidence for. See Homo (Genus) What implications does that have for the whole “god made us in his image” idea? What does this mean for those who believe the world is only 6,000 years old?

Could you imagine the religious implications if there were not only different races of human, but different species still around today?

    Well, we killed them, so obviously we’re the God’s-imageliest. :p

    We didn’t kill them all, some of them died out on their own.
