As a Baptist, with the doctrine that Baptist hold about the authority of the Scriptures, this thread is offered. It delves into a question that may be asked by someone in the assembly, and perhaps the educational benefit of the thread will help with a ready Scriptural answer. According to such sources as "National Geographic" and "Live Science" humans have about 20% Neanderthal DNA. So, three questions. 1) Do you consider that such DNA results are valid and serve a purpose? 2) Would you view some of the psychological problems (autism, hyperactivity disorder, attention deficit disorder, ...) are the result of this mixture? 3) Were are neanderthals in the Scriptures? On another, yet somewhat related matter (chemical makeup of the humans), what is your thinking on the current study Sweden did that may show a link (early conclusion that may no hold up with further research) between the hormonal levels in a mother prebirth and autism development? An article about the study can be found HERE.
