The Middle Paleolithic (MP) period saw the emergence of Homo sapiens archaicus who is associated with a new type of flake tool industry, Mode III technology.
Homo sapiens archaicus appears in Asia somewhere between 200,000 and 100,000 years ago and in Australia possibly 100,000 to 60,000 years ago with subsequent arrivals perhaps as late as 6,000 BP (Kow Swamp, OSL 22-19K, C14 15-9K BP; Lake Nitchie, 7-6.5K BP; Cossack >7,000 BP).
Based on DNA studies it appears that Homo neanderthalis became extinct or, as evidenced in recent Portuguese skeleton, 24,500 BP, faded away by interbreeding into Homo sapiens sapiens.

Homo excelsior (Latin for "higher man") is a term used in transhumanism for the posthuman.
The use of the Latin binomial implies the transhumanist idea of participant evolution as a hypothetical human progression through an intermediary form of the transhuman to the new species different from Homo sapiens.

More recently, the replacement within less than 100,000 years of Homo neanderthalensis by Homo sapiens migrating across Europe may have been passive and opportunistic, as some climate evidence suggests, or it may have been active and aggressive, as modern human behavior (Europeans and American Indians, for example) makes all too plausible.
(3) Is Homo erectus descended from Homo ergaster or is it either (a) descended from Homo habilis or (b) a coexisting branch descended from the same ancestor as Homo habilis?

In this poll, I'd like to see who believes that there were once other "human beings" aside from the "species Homo sapiens sapiens." I've included some that probably have already been proven hoaxes, so hopefully no one will say they believe even those were real, but with the pond-scum-to-people crowd, one never knows.
Edit: I selected number ten, as I think there are and were human beings, and that's it, no "half-humans," so to speak.
Of the three or more species of hominid that existed between 2 million and 2.5 million years ago, only two made it through to a million years ago Homo erectus and the robust australopithecine.
