    Actually there was peace between homo sapiens and the neanderthals. Archeology has found that they shared the same grave sites in what is modern day Israel. Maybe things would be better if the neanderthals returned.

    • Thanks for your insights! Yes, shared grave sites certainly show some cooperation and with about 4% of homo sapien DNA actually coming from Neanderthals, shows that they had sex too. However the overarching story is that Neanderthals were killed off by homo sapiens in the end, I believe around 30,000 years ago. If we were to bring them back, would it happen again?

Got something to say?
