Albeit somewhat similar to the modern human larynx and hyoid bone, neanderthal's or denisovan's for that matter are not "proof" of evolution, in
the darwinist sense at least. Our species coexisted with these "prehumans," most surely interbred with them. No geneticist in the world would accept
that we evolved from them - evolution does not happen almost overnight by leaps and bounds, no matter how often one ponders brain vs brawn.
Modern man's mitochondrial dna has been found to be circa 200,000 years old, with South Africa as a place of origin.
I am neither religious, nor creationist, but I will not stand for speculation, where they throw a theory and try to offer it as "fact."
It is often said here and elsewhere to keep an open mind, deny ignorance etc., but how quick one is to dismiss the other's opinion, be at the ready
We know nothing about neanderthal's language, do not know whether modern man actually borrowed words, or whetever else pertaining to language from
them. It is just a hypothesis, as the case often goes with our scientists.
