Where Science and Faith Converge

Cave Art—a Sign of Human Exceptionalism?

By - March 6, 2018

Cave art is not unique in the fact that it can be found all over the world. However, it is unique in its use of symbolism to communicate ideas. Until now, symbolism has been exclusively attributed to human beings—but some say cave art was painted by Neanderthals. What does this mean for human exceptionalism? Were Neanderthals like us? Or are some scientists showing bias? Fazale Rana joins host Michelle Mendoza on Live From Seattle to unpack these questions and more.
