As George Santayana so famously said, “Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.”
According to The Guardian, a recent scientific journal suggests that Neanderthals met their demise not as a result of climate change, but at the hands of humans. As lunch. And to add insult to injury, the teeth of recently ingested Neanderthals were possibly used to make costume jewellery.
But the history lesson here should not be lost on the modern Neanderthal – the Harper-worshipping neo-con.
The article states, “modern humans probably contributed to Neanderthal extinction”, and “modern humans” will do so again. But this time I’d vote for letting them keep their teeth.
