There is recorded in the Old Testament an account of many of the patriarchs living to be impossibly old ages. For ex. Adam, Noah, Methusela, Shem, Ham etc all lived for several, if not many centuries. It is not a commonly known fact, that the human skull continues to grow through-out the life of an adult. It has been found, and is an evolutionary mystery, that Neanderthal and Homo sapiens coexisted in at least some instances in the past, presumably w/o interbreeding. Could it be that these "Neandertal" were less devolved Homo sapiens sapiens? Is it possible the prognathic features and large cranial size [up to 1700cc] of the Neanderthal is simply a manifestation of a centuries-old human skull? And rather than being intellectually insipid, these people were highly intelligent [albeit w/o our tech] capable of circumnavigating the globe, of constructing architectural structures that are exquisetly tuned to astrological movements and likely surpass the current human capabilities [see Ghiza Pyramids]. Do we have it exactly backwards?
