Let me hold unto this music for some time…
About 12,000 years ago man started to domesticate animals. Mankind all of a sudden became more numerous, and probably for the first time in the history of man diseases started to spread from animal to man. The domestication created a new and unnatural relationship between animal and man.
In this situation the animals changed too. As stated here creatures of different species or sub-species don’t mix in nature, if they have a choice, because of their genetic differences, but also because of their different lifestyles and their geographical locations. Domesticated animals were forced to procreate with animals they otherwise would not have procreated with, because they had to or because they were forced to by man, who wanted to promote certain qualities in their animals.
With time the domesticated creatures became broken, unable to survive on their own, and they were thus completely dependent of their human masters, often in order to even survive. E. g. milk cows today produce a lot of milk, but they will soon die from teat infection unless they are milked every single day – because they produce too much.
But why did they start to domesticate animals?
Because it was easier and less exhausting than to hunt wild animals.
But why did man all of a sudden want to take the easier path some 12,000 years ago? He was no less intelligent even 400,000 years ago, so why this development at that point?
Because the native European man, the Neanderthal, had been a little bit mixed with Africans, Homo Sapiens, and the adverse effects of this mixing were many: loss of speed and muscle-mass, the weakening of the skeleton and a lowering of intelligence. Hunting became more difficult for the “new” and mixed European (the Cro-Magnon). Also, this “new” European was less intelligent than the old European, so he didn’t understand that domesticating animals could have such dramatic and adverse effects.
We have “progress” today too, because we are intelligent. So we e. g. invented pesticides, and by doing so got rid of a lot of the problems we had in agriculture. Today we try to reduce the use of pesticides though, because we understand that they actually do more harm than they do good. I say this, to make you understand that had we been more intelligent than we are today, we would probably not have invented pesticides or used them, because we would have understood that doing so is actually not at all good. The Neanderthals might have not domesticated animals because they were intelligent enough to understand that doing so was not very smart. The mixed Neanderthal though was not that smart….
So the with time dumber and dumber mixed race human beings finally ended up thinking that it would be a good idea to domesticate animals, and they eventually were dumb enough to think this was a good idea around 12,000 years ago.
So why were the Neanderthals dumb enough to mix with Homo Sapiens? We don’t know, but the most likely explanation to this is simply pity. The much stronger and much more intelligent Neanderthals defeated the tribes of Homo Sapiens attacking them in Africa, but they were good at heart, like Europeans still are, so they could not kill the African babies, or leave them there to die, when they had killed or chased away the African adults. So they adopted these babies, probably knowing it was not such a good idea, and every now and then some of these adopted children grew up and was allowed to procreate with a Neanderthal. The female offspring they had was fertile… (as is often the case when two different species mix). Over the course of 120,000 years of conflict in Africa, between Neanderthals and Homo Sapiens, some Homo Sapiens blood was mixed into the Neanderthal tribes, who brought this female African DNA with them back to Europe when the Ice Age ended. And because of this we – Europeans – have on average 0,3% purely African DNA.
The mixing of species or even sub-species is never a good idea. It left much of the European species if not broken, then at least dramatically reduced in quality, and with time this reduction in quality spread out all across Europe.
The last to fall to this racial decline was the Western and Northern European tribes, simply because they lived furthest away from the source of the problem; the land connection between Asia and Africa…
