"In Shanxi Province, there
were reports of villagers encountering a Wildman in the area to the east
of the Taibai mountains of Qinling in 1977. It was said to be 2 meters
in height, and it walked upright. Subsequently, a biological resources
study team from Shanxi Province made an on-the-spot investigation, and
suggested that it could be a large unknown primate."

|An unsolved mystery in Laetoli,
In 1976, members of a team led by Mary Leakey discovered the fossilized footprints of human ancestors in Laetoli, Tanzania, Africa. The footprints were formed 3.5 million years ago when at least two individuals walked over wet volcanic ash.
Problem, the timeline for
human evolution understood by all the leading archeologists does not allow
for modern humans, who would have left prints formed like this, to have
been alive 1 million years ago, let alone 3.5 MYA
|Modern humans arrived in
Europe, from Africa, at least 32,000 years ago and possibly as early
as 36,000 years ago.
Watched a thing on the Discovery Channel about caveman, called “walking with cavemen”, learned something interesting, the big thing that made our homonoid ancestors different than other primates was the fact that we evolved to lose a lot of body hair, so we sweated through our skin, this meant our mouths could be freed from panting and make more distinct sounds which could be communication, communication means we could coordinate movements in hunting and overwhelm animals to kill them instead of just looking for dead animals to scavenge – by hunting animals and eating larger quantities of meat our bodies can grow bigger and our brains get bigger so we become a superior primate mammal.

hominids with prominent brows, coarse jaws and short legs, are thought
to have arisen in Africa more than 250,000 years ago. They are
thought to have appeared in Europe about 120,000 years ago and eventually
to have been replaced by modern humans.
"The short, squat Neanderthals inhabited much of Europe from about 100,000 years ago until dying out about 28,000 years ago.
Neanderthals lived at the same time in ancient Europe as did modern human "cavemen"
My [witiger] personal opinion is that Neanderthals lived in much more recent times than many people would be comfortable with.
|"The general robusticity
of Neanderthal can be attributed by the large muscle attachment area on
Neanderthal bones, expecially the long bones. Though this is manifested
as a slight "bowing" of the long bones, this curvature is a direct result
of the large muscles that the Neanderthal skeletal structure supported.
The deltoid, pectoralis major and radial tuberosities are massive"
"...the evidence supports genetic selection for robusticity...had to use brute strength to forcibly manifest their survival "
"...Neanderthals were probably better at throwing (Debenath and Tournepiche 1992) than their modern contemporaries."
Neanderthals were very very strong primates - much more than modern humans

"The remains of Neanderthals were found in this cave at Vindija, Croatia in the 1890s. Modern humans are known to have lived about 120 miles away, but questions remain about how and even if the two species of hominids interacted. (Croatian Academy of Sciences)

ancient A to T transversion polymorphism has been identified on the human
Y chromosome using denaturing high performance liquid chromatography (DHPLC)
methodology. There is no evidence of recurrent mutation at this site. The
marker distinguishes an early bifurcation in a Y chromosome haplotype phylogeny
composed of ð 60 simple sequence polymorphisms, most of which have
not yet been described. The allelic state of this apparently relic polymorphism
was determined in ð 900 human chromosomes of diverse global origin.
The ancestral (i.e., non-human primate) allele is localized exclusively
to a minority of both extant north African and sub-Saharan individuals.
All non-African, as well as the majority of African males sampled, carry
only the derived allele. This marker suggests that most modern human Y
chromosomes trace their ancestry to a single African forefather. In addition,
a T to C transition was found which is linked to the same north African
and sub-Saharan African chromosomes which maintain the ancestral transversion
allele, indicating that some individuals, while currently geographically
isolated, once shared a common primogenitor. "
