    Hello in this thread im wondering, what do u think life would have been like if homo sapiens hadnt conquered earth, instead neanderthal had or perhaps cro magnons?

    Is it possible to assume that homo sapiens had been murderous compared to the other two species of early man. What if the only reason that homo sapiens had conquered is due to the fact that they backstabbed the others into non existense? its not too far from the imagination seeing how what our race had done to other species of life on this planet before we started to realize the importance of species preservation.

    We may have ended up with fewer daft questions on the forum.

    Why would you assume that?

    What if the only reason that homo sapiens had conquered is due to the fact that they backstabbed the others into non existense?
    What if the others all went on holiday, decided not to come back and left H. Sapiens in charge?

    its not too far from the imagination seeing how what our race had done to other species of life on this planet before we started to realize the importance of species preservation.

    Due to the fact that predicting about 30.000 years of evolution under different circumstances is almost impossible,
    I do not want to speculate about it.

    "The only safe rule is to dispute only with those of your acquaintance of whom you know that they possess sufficient intelligence and self-respect not to advance absurdities; to appeal to reason and not to authority, and to listen to reason and yield to it; and, finally, to be willing to accept reason even from an opponent, and to be just enough to bear being proved to be in the wrong."
