Last decisive battle between modern humans and  the ‘short’ and ‘ugly’ NEADERTHALS may have been fought in a cave overlooking Damascus

Some contemporary thinkers blame modern humans (you and I) for wiping out the Neanderthals from the face of the Earth. That may not be true as many Neanderthals lived beyond the reach of modern humans who were forced to leave Northern Arabia following the drying up of a huge lake. However, groups of Neanderthals lived in the oases of Damascus and Palmyra (Syria) and both appear to have been slaughtered using the pickaxe, the invention of the time.

Our Stone Age ancestors recongised Neanderthals as a race but they are not believed to have been a serious threat such as the HO.


etymology team has identified four races in prehistoric times. 1) *ʼD (also *UD). Adding ‘m’ after the root produced *ʼDm. Don’t be shocked. This is the origin of ‘Adam’. They left us a description of their skin *ʼDim “color of earth” which is sand because we believe they lived in an oasis in south east Arabia. These are the ancestors of light colored people. 2) *ḤM. From this root ‘*ḤMr “colour red, donkey”. Why donkey and red? Because the color of their skin is black with a touch of redness, like the color of some donkeys in east Africa. These are not Negros (zinj) but dark skinned people. Don’t be shocked. These are the *ḤaM mentioned in the Old Testament but biblical scholars have no idea of the origin of the word. Thanks to the etymology team, now they know, and they also know now the origin of Adam, the father of one of two nations in Arabia. The second is the father of Yemenis.
3) *SM (Sum). These are the Sumerians, the Canaanites, the Phoenicians, you name it. Historians spent 200 years trying to find the origin of the Sumerians. Thanks to the etymology team now they know. The name in the Old Testament is “Shem”. The correct name is “Sum”. They have a famous ancient port in today’s Oman “Sumharam”. From this ancient and innovative race are the people of Somalia > sum+ml = ‘millah’ > “nation”
The fourth nation is the *DM. ‘*Dmim’ in Arabic is “ugly and short”. This race of human cousins was deemed “ugly”. The etymology team thinks this is the description they had for Neanderthals.
Now to Damascus: This is a nucleitic compound “*DM, *ŠQ” (DMŠQ) but the ‘q’ is a migration from the hard ‘g’. The meaning, “cleave, open, cut”, is the same but the difference identifies the nation that attacked the Neanderthals – ancient Yemenis, the oldest highly organized warring nation on Earth.
The compound means “the Dum whose heads were opened”. There is a cave high up in the mountain, Cassioun, overlooking Damascus still known as the “cave of blood”. ‘Blood’ in Arabic is “dam” but originally we believe it was “dum”. Two locations below the mountains to the west and east of Damascus are “DUma” and “DUmmar”. Both constitute a long stretch of land cut by river Barada, an ancient river that created the oasis of Damascus in the Middle of barren land.
It looks to the etymology team that skirmishes between ancient Yemenis and Neanderthals began in the plains below the mountain. As the defense of the Neanderthals began to crumble, they retreated to the cave high up where the last battle took place probably 25,000 years ago.
