Why on earth would we want to reduce our genetic diversity?

This. I sometimes get so angry when I see the amount of resources rich countries, especially USA devote to military frown.gif. Instead of using the money for science that benefits the whole mankind, not just weapon manufacturers and politicians. NASA program budget is too damn small and in the future there will be even more cuts.

Agreed. Been thinking this for years.

Depends on what you are recycling.

Recycling metals, for example, is fairly easy and usually much more economical than mining and refining new ore.

SAME, imo tho not that it would be cool for companies like apple and google to be leading in space exploration (<-lol)
i think companies "like" them with such excessive profits should put some of that towards such space things!

Then let me formulate a statement which more accurately portrays my views and opinion.

Neanderthal man wasn't as smart as our ancestral counterparts which has been shown in study. They were not as adept at adaptation as our ancestors either. That is why they did not survive (in a broad sense). In a correlated fashion my opinion is that we ought to get rid of the stupid people in our population. You don't see a three-legged antelope running on the outer edge of a herd for a reason; and even if you did that easy kill goes to the predator before the others and rightfully so. The smart endure. The stupid don't.

we cant even live with each other because of racial backgrounds. you think we wouldnt just try to destroy another sentient race if they stood in our way? thats incredibly naive. the only reason we'd try to live with other sentient beings would be because they could whipe us out. rolleyes.gif soon as we find a vulnerability, people are going to jump at the advantage and force the other society out.

Until we have a better understanding of how genetics work and a deeper understanding of neanderthals we won't know in which ways they were inferior and which ways they were superior to homo sapiens. For all we know they have slightly better immune systems then homo sapiens and that's what the genes we've kept from them are for. It could be as simple as a slightly better protein usage or a slightly better musculature layout.

Evolution will decide what genes we keep from our interbreeding with neanderthal, to decide ourselves that these small number of genes are negative is folly before we understand them fully.

Adding to the genetic diversity of a species (such as by adding neanderthal genes to homo sapiens) can only make that species stronger in the long run as that species evolves.
