What if the last remaining Neanderthals were the pharaohs of Egypt. What if they were smarter and were the designers of the pyramids. If you look at some of the pharaoh xrays they had very elongated back of the heads. So do the Neanderthals. Why did they were turbans? Why did the Egyption Pharaoh's royal line interbreed so much? Maybe they were trying to maintain the last of the Neanderthal blood line. Could Helen of Troy be the last of the Neanderthals? The Greeks took her from Egypt then the Turks from Greece. Why so much blood for one person? This is a wild theory but every time a see a skull of a Neanderthal and an Egyption Pharaoh they look identical. So maybe they are. If you read the bible story of the great flood one of the reasons for the flood was to eliminate a different race of people. The bible version is angels with people. What if it was just Neanderthal and people.

History, anatomy, anthropology, chronology, ethnography, fashion, Bible and general coherence FAIL.

Comparison of H. sapiens and H. neanderthalensis skulls:

Picture of the skull of an Egyptian Pharaoh:

Let's see... no prominent brow ridge, chin protrusion, flat face, thin jaw... That's not a neanderthal!

It looks to me more like they've strapped the infant skull to bind into a pleasing shape...

It's true that Neandertals were very smart people, but they were kind of extinct at that point.

Yes, I would like fail dressing with that word salad please...

No...just no.

Congratulations! You have now created a new concept built of such stupidity as to completely baffle scientists for generations. Clearly we, as a species, have ceased to evolve.

Ah, the Stupidity is strong with this one.

Yes, yes, A1, I see. You're absolutely right. You are so smarts.

But the pharaohs are mentioned after the flood. So how did they survive? And isn't it a sin to add bullshit to your precious book?

Doubting Thomas

Considering that there is a huge gap of time between Neanderthals and ancient Egypt, and the fact that Neanderthals lived in Europe and western and parts of central Asia, I'd say your idea is full of crap.

Sound General Quarters!

We're approaching the Scheisskopf Radius!!!

@Doubting Thomas.

I think all that gets lumped together in Al's head as: "A long long time ago ... in a country far, far away ..."

Meh not conspiracy theory. This is just wild historical speculation that shows ignorance of history.

If he said something about "them" covering it up then it would be a conspiracy theory.

1/25/2010 6:02:26 PM

Nope. Neanderthals died out long before the ancient Egyptians came around.

Also, there's tons of evidence that Homo Sapiens were always smarter than neanderthals. We tended to take down large mammals with projectiles while neanderthals went in with knives and rocks, for one thing.

Ok, go explain why the Pyramids are only 5000 years old and the neanthertals dissappeared like 100,000 years ago.

Actually, the last known Neanderthals disappeared somewhere between 24,000 and 30,000 years ago.

Still too long ago to have been the Pharoahs, though.

If your in elementary school, interesting idea. If not, please get an education.

1/26/2010 4:23:04 PM


Obviously someone has been watching too much 10000BC. That movie was fiction. Neanderthals didn't exist in Egypt at the same time as the pharoahs or the pyramids. End of story.

Batshit crazy but bonus points for originality!

YOU'RE!!! Now my head hurts too! Before you go around implying other people are in need of an education, it might do you some good to give yourself a good "once over".

Al, I'd look into this thing called "making some fucking sense." Will improve your life and the lives of your loved ones.

Helen of Troglodyte?

(and yes I know but I'm calling poetic license of this one)

1/28/2010 4:30:39 PM



Oh, wow.

Who left the What If Machine turned on? This kind of thing happens when you do!
