"lol, the same Neanderthals that died out about 40,000 years ago or possibly 24,000 years at the earliest..... you know little of human evolution."
At the "earliest"?
(Cro Magnum's entered what is Europe c40,000 yrs ago from the Middle East. The last known pure Neanderthal remains date 25,000 yrs ago, they probably disappeared 24,000 yrs ago.)
"There were some people of European descent wandering the Levant at that time but to think Jesus was one, if he ever existed, is pure fantasy."
Yeah, um, like Greeks and Romans? JUDEA WAS MERELY PART OF ROME AT THE TIME, ya ignoramous, and part of Europe looooooooong before the barbaric hinterlands north of the Pyranees were.
I refer you to my comment posted near the bottom of this thread hours ago:
Eunoch is a single man, hardly indicative of a population, and more indicative of a prisoner of war. That he was identified as an Ethiopian signifies exactly that, his exoticness not typically Judean.
Libya's ancient population was not supplanted by the present one. Same people, with admixtures of the various historical invasions.
North Africa was never settled by Sub Saharan African (Negroids) hence the term Sub Saharan to describe what is commonly thought as African. Back then, not only was North Africa Caucasoid, it was European - the southern part anyways, the northern part being modern day Southern Europe bordering the Mediterranean (medi/middle terra/land)
Further, Ethiopia in the Bible signified not just Ethiopia proper, but those south of Egypt as well, typified by darker skin.
The Curse of Ham as it became commonly interpreted also points out that Negroids were not a part of Hebrew society, other than as slaves."
