So the Flores Man is an entirely different species, not an early form of modern humans. Up til now this was what was thought about the hobbits.
I find it amazing that these "hobbits" were running around, til something or someone killed them off. Wonder how "smart" they were?


ANCIENT “hobbits” recently discovered in Indonesia were not an early form of modern human but an entirely different species, scientists have found.

The ancient hobbits, who would have stood at 3.5 foot tall, were found at Liang Bua on the island of Flores in 2003.

Not a shrunken relative of modern humans and most likely a different species all together.


Experts initially believed the Homo Floresiensis – or Flores man – were just a shrunken variety of early humans.

But a study by The Australian National University (ANU) found the race were most likely a different species altogether.

Researchers think they were related to a sister species of Homo habilis – one of the earliest known ancestors of modern mankind which lived in Africa 1.75 million years ago.

This story is so cool. We need to clone one of them and bring them back to life like in Jurassic Park. How cool would that be to have another species of intelligent apes around!

I imagine very similar to early homo-sapiens. What would really be cool is if they had different senses than us. Say they could see infra-red like cats, distinguish smells like dogs, speak in stereo like dolphins and whales, change skin color like chameleons. There's all kinds of cool genetic stuff they could have had.

well.... that info confirms that there were 'people' on planet Earth when Adam-&-Eve were created

Lilith, the first female companion of Adam was from the Indigenous Population...
It never states in scripture that Lilith was tall as Adam or even could have been a 'Hobbit' person (not-human)

the 2 siblings Cain & Able also companioned themselves with the human like persons that were around the place where they abode... good thing it was the Eur-Asia area instead of Indonesia, huh?

Im my mind they would be aggressive little f#ckers kinda like scousers (People from Liverpool), I bet they would never return the lawn mower you lent them and I imagine they get their kinks from stealing your wifes G string from the cloths line, that is if they could reach but I also think they would have been decent performers so I would not put acrobatics past them...


Either that or they where lazy twats that just lounged about all day scratching their asses and they died out due to a total lack or foresight to there demise if they stayed put.. For sure they could not have made it into the NBA.....


Probably best they died out anyway, I could not take another group of SJW speaking how the "talls" keep them down.....

Don't think so. We can't get along with the species that are already living here. Why bring on another one and breed another form of intolerance?

They are human if they are related to Habilis. They are "homo", they are human. To be a different species would require a change of genus. I doubt they are not homo.

Ebo Gogu....I think the hobbits were here in the last 100 years.

"scouser hobbits" they were probably doing quite well until they invented the mirror and started fighting themselves

When Cultural Memories Meet Science


Deep in the forests of the island of Flores, Indonesia, local legend describes a human-like creature - smaller in stature and one with a voracious appetite - that would kidnap children and eat human babies.

Known as the 'Ebu Gogo' - "Ebu" means grandmother; and "gogo," means "he who eats anything" - the local people called the Nage have passed down monstrous tales of this mythical beast for centuries.

The Ebu Gogo were said to be nasty, gluttonous beasties - described as fast runners with wide, flat noses, broad faces, large mouths and hairy bodies. They were said to mumble in a distinct language of their own and were able to mimic human words, similar to parrots.

Because these creatures would kidnap children and steal food from villages, legend says they were driven deep into the rainforest and many killed by their human neighbors. Oral history accounts say they began to disappear with the arrival of Portuguese and Dutch settlers, starting in the 17th century.


It appears that humans and hobbits crossed paths. The above article insinuates 800k years (although it would not be sapiens at that point). But there were recent findings of human interaction around 50k years ago when Australia and its islands were populated during a prior out of africa event. The findings were human bones showing marks of consumption by Hobbit people, somewhat supporting the above legend.
