Who were the Red Deer Cave People?

They are thought to be either their own species (maybe subspecies), simply a race, or a hybrid group of Denisovan and modern humans.
Maybe they are the last Denisovan humans. Idk.

Did Neanderthals have same-sex marriage?

Since they were extinct long before the time of Adam and Eve, I would submit that they didn't have any kind of marriage at all. :P

But what if the ancient Hebrew wasn't interpreted correctly, and it was Adam and Steve, not Adam and Eve?

I guess that would mean Cain, Abel, and Seth never happened...
Which would mean Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob never happened...
Which would mean Israel never happened...
etcetera... etcetera... etcetera...

Which would mean...
"life is really just a dream" after all :P

But what about angel/human hybrids?

I'm sure they played a part in all of this...

I happened to have corresponded with Michael just a day ago - I wondered whether he was aware of Rich Deem's research comparing the demographics and geographic data related to supposed UFO or alien reports, as Rich research shows strong correlations between areas of unbelief with such sightings (lending credibility to the demonic aspect). Mike had never heard of Rich, but said he'll look at his research. He generally only pays attention to peer-reviewed information.

BTW... just so there is no misunderstanding.
I have a looooooot of respect for Michael Heiser!

I just happen to disagree with him on the angel/human hybrid theory.
