David: I would conclude, with no absolute proof, we are here because of superiority.
> Tony: Actually, I think it is probably more of a case of simple cultural assimilation. I'll give you two more recent examples. When Rome was building their empire, not only did they kill off most of the males, but they also bred most of the females of the nations they conquered..... Today, we are seeing more interbreeding between races within the U.S., particularly between Black, White, and Hispanic. It is not inconceivable to think that if isolated, the population of these parent races would disappear in just a few generations as social and cultural barriers give way to new norms. 
> As for the seperation in gene diversity, see the first sentence about Rome, because this was typical of ancient warfare. Kill all men old enough to fight, breed/rape all the women.... Within a few generations that group would be all but non-existent.-I think you are making my point. Rome was superior and desirable for many centuries. granted the Mongols took them out, but Homo sapiens were left as the only game in town with no one to take them out, unless we do it ourselves with the bomb.
