The Ghetto State of Mind

                     The Ghetto State of Mind  The Ghetto state of mind is an intriguing concept. In my hometown this mind set is on an upscale. It has always been there but in the last 5 years its grown rampantly like wildfire. The ghetto state of mind comes in all colors and nationalities. You can identify it by how someone carries themselves and by their words and actions and how they treat others.   Let us explore this unaesthetic mind set.  This mind set is at one of the lowest mindsets. In this mindset the person always has to be right, always gets their way. Putting their needs first is always on their agenda. Some examples are screaming and honking at an elderly to cross the street as opposed to a more noble mindset of going out of your way to help an elderly person cross the street. This mindset is also displayed by not letting people merge on the highway knowing that now they will now have to exit. In some states not merging is against the law but it is just human decency tha

How Neanderthal are you?

                              How Neanderthal are you?


                  Recently, I have been on a dna ancestry kick. My mom had hers done recently, and I found it very fascinating. So my dad and I payed for our ancestory test throught one of the popular companies that sells the kits. This company has a  feature that the other ancestry companies do not have. The, How much neanderthal are you feature. This really got me thinking, because I just can't be the person that giggles at it and then just moves on. Sometimes I wish I could just be that person! No, I just have to analyze everything!

       Who and just what are neanderthals? I tried to google it and then I realized this is not going to be a easy thing to figure out. I actually spent hours and hours researching this topic. Every article I read came out with different conclusions with almost nobody agreeing with each other.  Grrrrrr.  

       First of all "neanderthal" is not the pronounced the way I thought it should be. There is no TH sound. So you pronounce it neander-tal. When you say it out loud it makes you feel you are a true neander-tal. Now put some emphasis in it when you say it. They are called neanderthals because of the bones they found in the Neander Valley in Germany. This region itself is named after the theologian and hymn composer, Joachim Neander, who held church services and composed hymns there. There used to be waterfalls there. Sounds like a place I would like to go to a church service! 

       The neanderthal bones have been found all over Eurasia. The main difference between their bones and modern humans is the density of their bones was thicker and they had a more pronounced brow ridge. Some people think they were hunched over but they did not found many like this and the couple they found like this were said to have a disease known as rickets. There spines were very similar to ours. So the main differences are the thick bone density and the brow ridge. Remains of neanderthals are around 300 found. Most of these are not complete skeletons, a lot of times it just a few teeth that they find.

  So who are these neanderthals?  Like I said, there are so many varying opinions out there it makes my head spin. Some people like to think of Neanderthals as cave men. Like the Flintstones! Prehistortic people. Other people believe in Darwin's theory of evolution and that that neanderthals may be something of a missing link. Although there is no official missing link. These evolutionist think that Neanderthals could be a half ape, half man species.  So here comes some confusing stuff I had to sort out concerning this subject. There are a few different categories of prehistoric remains that are are being investigated. That is of the Neanderthals,Cro-magnons, Denisovans and Austalopithecus Afarensis. All of these are very similar with small differences except the Australopithecus Afarensis. That one is quite different. I will call it A.A.  It has a very small brain size(about 380cm-430cm) and a prognathic face(a face with forward projecting jaws). The curvature of their finger and toe bones approaches that of modern day apes. This helps them to climb trees.  Its reconstructed faces look like a monkey and not humanlike at all compared to the others like the Neanderthals,Cro-magnons and Denisovans. 

          A famous A.A. is Lucy. Dr. Johanson found 40 percent of Lucy's bones. He called it, The southern ape from the afar depression of north eastern Ethiopia. He named it from Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds by the Beatles. There is a remake statue of her displayed at the displayed The St. Louis Zoo, standing up with human like feet. Associate professor of anatomy and neurobiology,David Menton says these feet are not based on fossil facts. Dr. Menton who first complained about it in 1989, says "I think the zoo owes it to all the people who helped pay for the exhibit, to give Lucy a honest interpretation". In response the director of the zoo said they can not be updating every exhibit based on new evidence. Just a few years ago, when Gary Sawyer and Mike Smith at the the American Museum of Natural History in New York, began working on a new reconstruction of Lucy's skeleton. With the help from Scott Williams of New York University, they noticed something odd. They found a vertebra of a baboon that didn't even belong to Lucy's skeleton. Oh boy.

     There have been many frauds like this one. After Darwin's Origin of species. Many were looking for the missing link. One of these people was, Charles Dawson. He discovered Pildown man. He fused part of a man's cranium with a jawbone of a orangutan. Before the fraud was discovered Pildown man was in the school text books for 40 years..What about Nebraska man? Harold Cook a part time geologist found a tooth that looked like a ape tooth. He sent it out to be examined by Henry Osborn at Columbia University. Osborn excitedly declared this fossil to be the first ever discovered Ape-like man in North America. This single tooth grew popularity all through out the world! In 1927 after examining the area were the tooth was discovered and uncovering more fossils in the area, it was decided that that Nebraska man did not come from a man or a ape but from a pig ancestor from the Pleistocene. 

       The Darwinians evolutionists are looking for the missing link of man and ape.  This missing link for his theory has not been found. Every scientist has his own theory and practically nobody coming to a consensus. Must be frustrating to be continual changing theories all the time every week. I had to do a evolution brush up.  Charles Dawrin was not the first to invent evolution but was the first to believe the theory of natural selection. He came out with his book,  titled, On the Origins of Species By Means Of Natural Selection Or The Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle of Life. Hmmmm Interesting title huh?? He believed that life came from a common ancestor and scientists are still trying to figure out what that common ancestor is. 

            So how much Neanderthal are you? I don't know. My father recieved his dna test results and it said he a large percentage of neanderthal dna. The test also revealed traits the he shared with Neanderthals such as no back hair. Hmm, Not having back hair makes you more like a neanderthal. Another misconception of liking neanderthals to hairy type ape, human types. Interesting thing is that of all the people they have tested, Africans and African Americans have almost none or very small amounts of neanderthal. With all the research I did on neanderthals I came up with my own conclusion since that's all I could do since everyone seems to think differently. 

       Neandethals, Cro-Magnons, and Denisovans were all prehistoric people. There is nothing ape about them. On the other hand Australopithecus  comes from the primate-monkey family. Not related to us. Neanderthals also had bigger brains then modern man.Their brains were between 1600cm, wow, compare that to Lucy's brain.Some people are theorizing that Neanderthals and modern people mated and that is why we have Neanderthal DNA. I propose another idea. Now why do Neanderthals and the others have a denser bones? That is because after the flood people lives to be up to 400 years old and life expecdency descended after that. If you were to live till 400 years you bones would be denser and your brow ridge becomes more pronounced. Yes they both lived together, not because they were different species and mated together. They were the same species and some and found their remains in the same area and time because they died at different ages just as people do now. The ones with the thicker bones were the ones that lived longer. The ones with the thinner bones died younger.

    Neanderthal dna in my opinion is just part of a race of people that descended from either Shem, Ham or Japeth. If you are interested in learning more about the Shem, Ham, and Japeth migrations stay tuned to my next blog post, Out Of Asia.

     Remember you did not from a common ancestor. You came from a Common Creator. He is the missing link! They wonder why we share so dna with a ape, or fruitfly or a bananna? Hey why don't they do that test next on 23 and me? How much banana are you?? We share between 50 and 60 percent with a banana! The reason there is a comanlity in all life is because we were made by the same creator. When I go to a art exhibit and see a showcase by Georgia O'Keefe. I see the same type of art work. I see the commonality. I can see it all has a similar style. That is because it was made by the same creator! Same thing with Life. That is the missing link! Now say Neander-tal!
