Hank Hanegraaff, the host of the Bible Answer Man broadcast, responds to an April 2020 article in USA Today titled, “Neanderthals didn’t just hunt mammoths. They actually knew how to fish, researchers discover” by Doyle Rice. The article goes on to dispel the fervently held notion that Neanderthals were club-wielding brutes; instead, they were skilled fishermen whose seafood diet increased their cognitive ability and boosted their aptitude for abstract thought. So as it turns out, Neanderthals were human beings after all. Once again what has long been touted as settled science turns out not to be so settled after all. This, says Hank, should not surprise us in the least because scientific academics are hardly impervious to group-think—particularly when tenure, social dynamics, and grants are in play.
