I hate to burst your bubble but there is absolutly no evidence that Neanderthal clashed with modern man In fact recent DNA evidence shows that they interbred... alot.
What evidence do you need?
They existed at the same time in the same place.
Even brothers war with each other, I don't believe it was the big happy orgy you suggest.
Sorry, your ignorance did not burst my bubble.
Also Neanderthal was nothing like what is reported in Bigfoot sightings.
I disagree with you.
.Neanderthal was = in intellegence to man at that time, crafted tools. wore clothes, and painted cave paintings in caves all over Europe. so with that in mind i have to say that your theory is completly barmy.
There is evidence of tool making but clothes?Link please.

But do African actually look more like primates?
Actually all people look like some related primate (where they still exist), although such terms have become more politically incorrect and confined.
Actually African people have a black skin.
Primates (if you shave them) have a greyish-white skin.
Black Africans have thick lips.
Primates have very thin lips. The racist stereotype confuses the protruding jaw of the primate with "thick lips".
We seem to see each other and primates as caricatures, and that sends unrealistic signals to the brain.
That itself could come from inter-hominid warfare and interbreeding in prehistory.
Like many archaeological discoveries, this one was accidental. Researchers weren’t looking for signs of prehistoric fire; they were trying to determine the age of sediments in a section of the cave where other researchers had found primitive stone tools. In the process, the team unearthed what appeared to be the remains of campfires from a million years ago — 200,000 years older than any other firm evidence of human-controlled fire. Their findings also fanned the flames of a decade-old debate over the influence of fire, particularly cooking, on the evolution of our species’s relatively capacious brains.
