Who exactly were the Aurignacians, who lived in the Levant 40,000 years ago? Researchers from Tel Aviv University, the Israel Antiquities Authority, and Ben-Gurion University now report that these culturally sophisticated yet mysterious humans migrated from Europe to the Levant some 40,000 years ago, shedding light on a significant era in the region's history.
The Aurignacian culture first appeared in Europe some 43,000 years ago and is known for having produced bone tools, artifacts, jewelry, musical instruments, and cave paintings. For years, researchers believed that modern man's entry into Europe led to the rapid decline of the Neanderthals, either through violent confrontation or wresting control of food sources. But recent genetic studies have shown that Neanderthals did not vanish. Instead, they assimilated into modern human immigrant populations. The new study adds further evidence to substantiate this theory.

Humans migrated to the Levant... and turned into Arabs.
They propose that these people are the missing hybrid link between Neanderthals and Modern Humans.
There are only Arabs in the Levant?
Following the migration of European populations into this region, a new culture existed in the Levant for a short time, approximately 2,000-3,000 years.
Funny how they call 2 to 3 thousand years a short period of time.
Important point also:
“... have demonstrated that Aurignacians arrived in modern-day Israel from Europe some 40,000 years ago - and that these Aurignacians comprised Neanderthals and Homo sapiens alike.”
“Two teeth showed a typical morphology for Homo sapiens; one tooth showed features characteristic of Neanderthals; the last tooth showed a combination of Neanderthal and Homo sapiens features.”
“Following the migration of European populations into this region, a new culture existed in the Levant for a short time, approximately 2,000-3,000 years. It then disappeared for no apparent reason,”
Bad tempered joke. Still on first cup of coffee.
The original Zionists
Yep, that is exactly what caught my attention. This is actually pretty significant in the hybrid theory.
The article talks about Neanderthals and Homo Sapiens as being separate species...
Yet, it also mentions how Neanderthals got assimilated into the Homo Sapiens community. To assimilate means that they reproduced across the species. If so, they were not different species. Neanderthals and Homo Sapiens were as different as blacks and whites of today; they marry and reproduce across color lines, meaning that they were/are all of the same species.
The term “Levant” is used to deny the history of Israel and the Jews.
I think in this case interbreeding species to create “Mules” might come to mind as a comparison?
From an scientific anthropological perspective with no religious bent, It is just a geographical area location which also includes Israel and Greece.
Agreed. That was completely unfair to the Neanderthals.
Ever seen Israel identified on a map of the Levant?
Any connection to the Denisovans perhaps?
Well, maybe the Neanderthals haven’t completely disappeared after all, facial recognition and forehead slope (hairline close to eyebrows) would lead me to believe we have a couple in Congress!
