Who or what were the Yoslings of the Kolbrin? Descriptions of them are rather scanty, but they are called â€˜half-folkâ€™, â€˜not true menâ€™, and â€˜kinsfolk to the beastsâ€™. (Emphasis and parenthesis mine):
â€œHe (Fanvar) fell asleep in the heat of the day and awoke to find himself surrounded by the Sons of Bothas, not true men but Yoslings, kinsfolk to the beasts of the forestâ€¦
"About the land of The Children of God was the wasteland where Yoslings, called The Children of Zumat, which means They Who Inherit Death, dwelt.â€ â€“ The Kolbrin, Book of Creation, Chapter 5
â€œTime went by and the half-folk called Yoslings began to gather around her (Gwineva the Cuckoochild) habitation and they thought she was a goddess and worshipped her.â€ â€“ The Kolbrin, Book of Creation, Chapter 8
While clearly of a more primitive and animalistic species than modern humans, these Yoslings did possess traits not known in any other current species of animal today besides man, these namely being consciousness, language, and reason. They used fashioned tools and performed rituals, at a more primitive level than our modern ancestors, yet at a higher level than any other primate known in the fossil record besides anatomically modern humans. Going by the fossil record and the Kolbrin stories of the Yoslings, these beings seem to be none other than the extinct species of primates now called Neanderthals.
The Kolbrin tells a tragic story of miscegenation between beings much farther apart than a tribal or racial level, but of a mixture at the level of separate species (Emphasis and parenthesis mine):
â€œIt was the custom of Maeva (Child of God) to wander there in the sunshine and Lewid (Yosling) also went there; so it came about that they met among the trees. Maeva knew the man but had shunned him in the past, now she saw he was handsome, possessed of many attractions, so her foot was stayed and she did not run away.
As the days passed they dallied longer together and Lewid talked of things Maeva had not heard before. She felt a stirring in her blood but did not respond or heed his temptations, because of the things which were forbidden. So Lewid went to the Moonmother, wise woman of the Yoslings, and telling of his desires beseeched her to help him. The Moonmother gave him two apples containing a vile substance which they had drawn through their stalks; this Lewid gave to Maeva who then became helpless in his handsâ€¦
â€œDadam (Child of God) said to the woman, “What have you done, for what has happened to us cannot be unless the things which are forbidden have been done”. The woman replied, “Lord, I was tempted and I fell, I have done that which is forbidden and unforgivable”.
Dadam said, “I am bound by duty to do certain things, but first let us go into the Gisar to the place called Bethkelcris, where I will seek enlightenment”. So they went there together and stood before the shrine beneath the Tree of Wisdom. There they were filled with an inflowing vision, seeing themselves as they were and as they should have been, and they were ashamed. He because he had not followed the proper path of a man and she because of her falsity. There, in the reflecting mist, the contamination of the woman was revealed, and the man’s heart shrivelled within him like a flower licked by flame.
Then they saw a great Spiritbeing materialising in the reflecting mist and he said to them, “Woe to you and your house, for the greatest of evils has befallen the race of The Children of God and it is defiled. The heritage of Kadamhapa is lost. The fetid flow defiling the woman results from the incompatible intermingling, but it is not all, for sicknesses and diseases are also generating from the ferments of the impure implantation”.
â€œDadam then married Maeva (Child of God) who had a daughter, not by him, and this was Gwineva, the cuckoochild fathered by Abrimenid of Gwarthon, son of Namtenigal, whom we call Lewid the Darkfather (Yosling).â€ â€“ The Kolbrin, Book of Creation, Chapter 5
What is most interesting about this tale, first openly published in 1993 in the Kolbrin, is that while Neanderthal/Cro-Magnon interbreeding was a fringe hypothesis, the scientific consensus at that time considered such an interbreeding impossible. This is because once two divergent species evolve far enough apart from common ancestors, gene linkage first results in often deformed or sterile offspring, and then finally becomes impossible due to incompatibility. Geneticists were certainly firm on the belief of incompatibility between Neanderthals and Cro-Magnon in 1993.
However, in 2010, the Neanderthal genome was fully sequenced, and compared to our own. Genetic science was rewritten in light of the new discoveries. It was found that not only that modern humans carried Neanderthal DNA (between 1-4%), but that different modern races carried different amounts of the extinct speciesâ€™ DNA. Caucasian (whites), interbred most with the Neanderthals, carrying the highest on average percentage of this DNA. Asians and Hispanics carry the second most amount of Neanderthal DNA. And tellingly, sub-Saharan Africans carry no Neanderthal DNA, meaning the Black African race did not interbreed with Neanderthals.
This coincides with the â€˜out of Africaâ€™ theory, which posits that modern humans originated in Africa, migrated first to Europe and the Middle East, and then on to Asia (later spreading to Australia and the Americas). The DNA percentages coincide here as Neanderthals resided between Europe and west Asia, with White Europeans having the most contact, Asians passing contact, and Africans no contact. Some articles on these findings below:
This is not all that the Kolbrin told of ahead of science. It got much more specific. (It mentions disease as well, which I shall not address here, but which others may work on if desired:
In sequencing the Neanderthal genome, scientists were surprised to discover lighter shades of skin and hair that were passed along to modern humans, but the gene for red hair specifically seems to be a trait that came from no other source than Neanderthals:
Now, before any scientist, researcher, or theoretician ever made any publicized link between red hair and Neanderthals, the Kolbrin points out the fact clearly in the story of the first Neanderthal/Cro-Magnon offspring, Gwineva the Cuckoochild (Emphasis and parenthesis mine):
â€œMaeva (the Child of God who first bred with Lewid the Yosling), one time wife of Dadam, found refuge among people of Ardis where she gave birth to Gwineva the Cuckoochild (the first offspring between the Yoslings and Children of God), but as the child grew it was seen that she had red hair. Though all knew there were fair-haired and dark-haired people, none had ever seen anyone with red hair. Also, strange maladies had manifested in Ardis for which the strangers were blamed; therefore, because of these things, Maeva and her child were driven out.â€ – The Kolbrin, Book of Creation, Chapter 8
