Tony: Would you make the same claim if discussing the Native Americans vs. Europeans? Or Africans vs. Europeans? Were they more or less sophisticated than Europeans? Were they more or less 'fit'? You are treading dangerously close to eugenics here in your mode of thinking. Worse, you seem to be confusing technological/numerical advantage with being more 'advanced' in biological terms.

By your reckoning, we should all be Mongolian, since they must have been more advanced than the Romans they conquored, right?

But you are admonishing me with all groups that are Homo sapiens. All of us won; it is the other Homo groups that were not as competent. Somehow or other we were better. Or do you think we were luckier?

As for Eugenics, the current evidence points to taking Darwin's thinking too far, with horrible results.
