Question for biologists: is it possible that neanderthals dissapeared because of interbreeding?
That is: if neanderthal and homo-sapiens bred and if the result is a mostly homo-sapiens human, that would mean that they would inevitably dissapear after enough time has passed?
It might be possible but there would have to be a large population imbalance that may not be consistent with what we see during when this took place. I’d have to think about it more.
