create unique and complex tools, adornments and body paints. 4 In particular, there are fragments of eagle claws and sea shells that Neanderthals used to make jewelry. There is also evidence that red ocher was used as a dye throughout this period. In addition, the inhabitants of that time created sculptures, that is, different types of art flourished. From the point of view of Young- Earth creationism, all these features corresponded to the human behavior that the Creator incorporated into a human. At the same time, the unique features of Neanderthals, for example, those relating to their anatomical structure, are quite explicable. As Habermehl argues, many points of view relate to the correlation between Neanderthals and modern human. 5 For example, according to creationists, the characteristics of the skull structure could be influenced by diseases, the nature of the food consumed, as well as the climate, in which those humans lived. For example, even a lack of vitamin D could alter the appearance of the bones of the skeleton, which was mistaken for a sign of underdevelopment. Evolutionists do their own research; in which they prove that the external environment cannot influence the differences so much. However, it is not a clear confirmation of the fact that Neanderthals were not human. For example, it is possible to mention the transformation of the nature of food. In the times described in the Old Testament, preference was given to hard or meat food that did not undergo preliminary processing. This feature could affect the development of changes in the shape of the jaws, and 4 Humangenesis. 2016. "The Art of the Neandertal". Human Genesis . - of-the-neandertal/. 5 Habermehl, Anne. 2010.

4 accordingly, the face. A similar opinion also belongs to Stringer who believes that their geographic drift and living conditions caused the anatomical differences between the skeleton of Neanderthals and modern humans. 6 Therefore, there is no doubt that Neanderthal is a true human. However, controversy is present among creationists as well. In particular, conservatives argue that Neanderthals were not human at all and simply had a close resemblance to a human being. That is, they were animals, and the evidence that some researchers take for their culture

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
