    Before the Europeans came, the Americas were settled by three waves of people from northeast Asia: the oldest wave beginning some 12,000 to 15,000 years ago, which gave rise to most Amerindians, and two later waves, which gave rise respectively to the Athapaskan and Inuit peoples of northern Canada and Alaska. That's the conventional view....
  • @jack shindo
    The land named US America was never a white man's land. It is only through theft, rape and deceit did it become such and when this happens the white peoples did what they did best to maintain that stranglehold on the US American landscape until today. Let's face the truth and stop the pretense, please. What do you think the native peoples in the Southwest or elsewhere are saying, or have said on their predicament; Here is an excerpt from a shaman based on America's best GOP contender;

    “When Europe sent its people, they did not not send their best. ... They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems to us. They’re bringing drugs (alcohol) They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people! .And it only makes common sense. They’re sending us not the right people. They stole our land then ask us for title for the land. They ripped us off then sent us to reservations and we were never paid rent or compensated. What is that about!

    What can be simpler or more accurately stated? Europe is forcing their most unwanted people into the United States. They are, in many cases, criminals, drug dealers, rapists, etc. Likewise, tremendous infectious disease in the form of measels infected blankets and they call us dirty.... The United States has become a dumping ground for the escaped white man...

    We have great respect for the white people who stole our land and love their people and their peoples’ great spirit. The problem is, however, that their leaders are far smarter, more cunning, and better negotiators than ours..... and why should they be when the relationship is totally one sided in their favor ....
    I wonder...............

    Gotta love your whiny, lyin’, revisionist BS.

  • There is growing evidence, however, for earlier waves of settlement. There’s Kennewick Man, who lived nine thousand years ago in the American northwest and who looked more European than Amerindian, the closest match being the Ainu of northern Japan. He also looked a lot like Patrick Stewart.- Peter Frost

    Are you really so stupid that you can’t tell the difference between Asia and Europe and their peoples?

    “…blacks look somewhat like the african apes –chimps and gorillas…. asians looks somewhat like the asian ape, orangutan…. discuss…”

    Other than being comical, you gots to be from another planet!
    It is well known and observable that thin lips are the domain of what we call white people today (a norm and an average!) along with bodily hair, which is nil to limited in the so named 'black people" of today. We come back to environment/climate.

    “…bodily hair, which is nil to limited in the so named ‘black people” of today [cited as an example of blacks looking less like African apes than other people]…”

    Body hair, like skin color, is not very helpful in determining whether a group of people objectively appear more or less like apes.

    For example, men with hairy backs (who do seem mostly white to me, though I have no studies to substantiate that) also tend to have hairy chests, arm pits, and crotches. So, from the back, they look more ape-like. From the front, they look less so.

    Male pandas also have proportionately small penises, meaning pandas must adopt a precise position in order to mate.

    We all live on stolen land. There is hardly a square inch of land on this earth that did not formerly belong to another people. That was one of the messages of my column, assuming you read it.
     
    Racialism is implicit in these sorts of discussions. Stealing land is not really the issue here, and not all stolen land is regarded as equally stolen. People are upset by and object to mass migration and African and Middle Eastern immigration to Europe, for example, not because they're really against stealing, but because of the race and genetic distance of the thieves. Implicit here is the view that race and genetic distance determine legitimacy and the gravity of transgressions.

    White Europeans have fought civil wars and wars to defend their nations against people who were practically identical to them for over a thousand years. They object to stealing.

    This isn't a place for ideological rants. The average immigrant from Europe was better than average, at least if we're talking about the initial period of settlement from the 17th to 19th centuries. Even in the early to mid-20th century, about 20% of all immigrants ended up going home. There was no welfare, and if you couldn't make a go of it, you often had to go back.

    Are you a native American or a white guy using native Americans as a sock puppet?

Even in the early to mid-20th century, about 20% of all immigrants ended up going home. There was no welfare, and if you couldn’t make a go of it, you often had to go back.

    We all live on stolen land. There is hardly a square inch of land on this earth that did not formerly belong to another people. That was one of the messages of my column, assuming you read it.
     
    Racialism is implicit in these sorts of discussions. Stealing land is not really the issue here, and not all stolen land is regarded as equally stolen. People are upset by and object to mass migration and African and Middle Eastern immigration to Europe, for example, not because they're really against stealing, but because of the race and genetic distance of the thieves. Implicit here is the view that race and genetic distance determine legitimacy and the gravity of transgressions.

    Also look at the snub-nosed monkeys of east Asia:

    Google images of them. They have snub-noses, almond shaped, slanted eyes, and roundish heads. They resemble Asians more than orangutans do, and they're based in Tibet/SW China region, which is where Asians are believed to have originated.

    Japanese macaques resemble Europeans as they have fair, pinkish skin, green eyes, narrow faces and long noses:

    There's no geographic connection between the Japanese macaques and Europeans, but the Japanese macaques may resemble species that used to exist in western Eurasia.

    These may suggest that there was some degree of multi-regional evolution or admixture.

  • The land named US America was never a white man’s land. It is only through theft, rape and deceit did it become such and when this happens the white peoples did what they did best to maintain that stranglehold on the US American landscape until today. Let’s face the truth and stop the pretense, please. What do you think the native peoples in the Southwest or elsewhere are saying, or have said on their predicament; Here is an excerpt from a shaman based on America’s best GOP contender;

    “When Europe sent its people, they did not not send their best. … They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems to us. They’re bringing drugs (alcohol) They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people! .And it only makes common sense. They’re sending us not the right people. They stole our land then ask us for title for the land. They ripped us off then sent us to reservations and we were never paid rent or compensated. What is that about!

    What can be simpler or more accurately stated? Europe is forcing their most unwanted people into the United States. They are, in many cases, criminals, drug dealers, rapists, etc. Likewise, tremendous infectious disease in the form of measels infected blankets and they call us dirty…. The United States has become a dumping ground for the escaped white man…

    We have great respect for the white people who stole our land and love their people and their peoples’ great spirit. The problem is, however, that their leaders are far smarter, more cunning, and better negotiators than ours….. and why should they be when the relationship is totally one sided in their favor ….

    I´ve had always the feeling the flora and fauna of a region resemble the people who live there, although it is probably some kind of posterior rationalization. For example trees in Europe tend to big and massive , while those in east asia like bamboo are rather slender. Or take the Giant Panda, the animal which is a symbol of China nowadays: it has a big head, rather small paws, it is not very aggressive and has a very low fertility. All attributes one could associate with East Asians.
    One thing I am rather sure of is that dog breeds somehow reflect features of the people they have been bred by. For example the "big dogs" in East Asia are not as big as the big digs in Europe (with the exception of the tibetan mastiff). The Japanese Akita Inu (other than the American Akita) is a big dog, but not as big as a German Shepard I think, never the less like a Rottweiler or some other huge dog breed.

    blacks look somewhat like the african apes –chimps and gorillas…. asians looks somewhat like the asian ape, orangutan…. discuss…

    That's a very weak foundation to build a theory upon. Most of the human gene pool seems to have a relatively recent origin in a relatively small population, perhaps some 80,000 years ago. As that population expanded it did pick up some admixture from archaic groups like the Neanderthals. But Neanderthals and modern humans shared common ancestors as recently as 350,000 to 400,000 years ago. By comparison, chimps and humans shared their last common ancestors between 5 and 7 million years ago.

    I don't see the point in discussing an idea that doesn't pass the test of superficial plausibility. It's this sort of discussion that makes "race realists" look like a bunch of chickenheads.

  • Come on, Peter, be precise! By definition, junk DNA is not genes and genes are not junk DNA.

    Genes can become deactivated, and over time they will degrade through an accumulation of point mutations that don’t get removed through selection. So an inactive gene can become “junk DNA.” I don’t think I’m speaking loosely here.

    The larger question is just how it is possible that “most genes are of low selective value”.

    Genes vary in their selective value. Some genes code for a single protein, and that’s it. Others regulate the expression of other genes. Still others regulate the expression of these regulator genes. So certain genes have a much greater impact on growth and development than do others. They are also much fewer in number.

    No gene is totally without selective value. This is true even for inactive genes that have become degraded and incapable of doing anything even if they were switched back on. They still take up space and thus influence how other genes relate to each other.

  • What is called junk DNA is the mindset of those who despite their alleged higher IQ, are unwilling, unable and incapable of figuring out its representation within the genome. Undifferentiated DNA, to those who use the junk DNA descriptive, appears to be an extra ‘tool’ of nature and within nature (something the high IQ adepts cannot understand and are incapable of understanding) that allows for continued success within the organism for its survival in the future. It is part of that higher calling often associated with natural synergy with the universe wherein it is manifested by certain groups having no knowledge of astronomy, music, or science to accurately but are naturally able to connect with it (the IT). Native people, wherever they may be, have solved, built, moved and planned out their communities without the use of what we call the tools of science today.

    Building the pyramids, whether in Africa, part of Eastern Europe, the Americas (Belize, Mexico, etc) and even Stonhenge, are part of that IT where these pre modern peoples (the actual builders)
    saw and cenceptualized their method. The modern mind seems incapable of understanding this as in 99.9999999999% of the time, ( p value less than .003? OK I am being preposterous) they attribute this to aliens and other beings!

    Body hair, like skin color, is not very helpful in determining whether a group of people objectively appear more or less like apes.

    For example, men with hairy backs (who do seem mostly white to me, though I have no studies to substantiate that) also tend to have hairy chests, arm pits, and crotches. So, from the back, they look more ape-like. From the front, they look less so.

    That depends on what features you fixate, as Desmond Morris among others have pointed out. Blacks have woolly hair. Chimps and gorillas — straight hair. Blacks often have thick lips. Chimps and gorillas — thin lips. Black women are commonly regarded in many countries as curvier (relative to the rest of humanity) with regard to breasts and buttocks. Chimp and gorilla females — not curvy. And while gorillas have black skin, a fair number of chimps have pale skin, so that doesn’t help either.

    In short, it’s a mixed bag. And as for orangutans looking like Asians? I don’t see that at all. Ditto for snub-nosed monkeys (for one thing, there’s a creature with really thick lips).

    Europeans migrated with East Asians to America? Geographically that doesn’t make sense.

    If you go back in time, you reach a point when the ancestors of Europeans and the ancestors of East Asians were the same people. Some academics peg this time of common origin at 40,000 years ago. Others, including me, lean to the onset of the last glacial maximum: 20,000 years ago.

    The ancestors of Kennewick Man avoided the glacial maximum (the coldest part of the last ice age) by living in the refugium of the coastal Northwest. So they didn't undergo the anatomical evolution that occurred in Northeast Asians during that time, like the evolution of the epicanthic eye fold. They consequently retained an older and more European-like appearance.

    This is something the advocates of the Solutrean hypothesis should consider. The Solutrean culture existed in Western Europe about 22,000 to 17,000 years ago. So it was very close in time to the common ancestors of all northern Eurasians.

    Insofar as Blackfoot faces, you’ll see lots of what could be called European features in the historic photographs, not only today’s Blackfeet.

    If we look at maternal DNA (which probably provides the best picture of the unmixed Blackfoot gene pool), the closest match (other than with other Amerindians) is with Northeast Asians.

    You may be right that those European features are of pre-Columbian origin. I don't believe the Kennewick humans died out. They simply became submerged by the people of the Clovis culture.

    The ancestors of Kennewick Man avoided the glacial maximum (the coldest part of the last ice age) by living in the refugium of the coastal Northwest. So they didn’t undergo the anatomical evolution that occurred in Northeast Asians during that time, like the evolution of the epicanthic eye fold. They consequently retained an older and more European-like appearance.

    Where is the evidence that these originated during the ice age or that they are ice age adaptations? It’d be one thing if they were thick coats of body fur or something, but they’re not. Do epicanthic folds help prevent eyeballs from freezing or something? If, say, Chinese people could get by in the winter without wearing jackets or something I think people would have noticed by now. They still have to wear jackets like the rest of us.

    At any rate, has this idea ever even been tested? It seems like it would be pretty easy to test in a lab. It’d be easy to test cold tolerance or resistance in a lab.

    That's a very weak foundation to build a theory upon. Most of the human gene pool seems to have a relatively recent origin in a relatively small population, perhaps some 80,000 years ago. As that population expanded it did pick up some admixture from archaic groups like the Neanderthals. But Neanderthals and modern humans shared common ancestors as recently as 350,000 to 400,000 years ago. By comparison, chimps and humans shared their last common ancestors between 5 and 7 million years ago.

    I didn't dispute the land bridge, I dispute it could only have been a one way street and the only source of the Americas populace from Asia. There's a lot of people in anthropology overemphasize the land bridge and Beringia, including yourself in the article, my opinion. Insofar as Blackfoot faces, you'll see lots of what could be called European features in the historic photographs, not only today's Blackfeet. Interesting coincidence their culture hero, Napi, is said to have been a White man. More than that, it is said all Blackfeet are descended from Napi. These oral histories have memories so far back as woolly mammoths, so somehow I doubt the possibilities are limited to Welsh, Basques and Vikings.

    Where you see more classic Asian features is in the surrounding tribes, particularly towards the West coast although as well the Cree often look more Asian.

    If you read my article, you see the case I set out, not least culture and genetics are often conflated by anthropologists in amazingly twisted ways to suit 'science' .. insofar as belief in genetics, I think it can be a useful tool but likely there's a whole lot yet to be discovered and it's far too soon to make any sweeping determinations, recalling western science held the appendix was an abandoned organ of indeterminate function for how long? Two or three hundred years? Now, we know it is a perfectly functional part of the intestine for restarting gut flora following a bout of dysentery.

    That’s assuming the out of Africa hypothesis is true. It’s just a hypothesis

    It hasn't been a hypothesis for some time now. We are all descended from a relatively small group of humans that began to expand somewhere in East Africa some 80,000 years ago. Around 60,000 to 50,000 years ago that expansion began to spread to the other continents. We see some signs of admixture between them and archaic hominins, like the Neandertals in Europe, the Denisovans in East Asia, and other groups in Africa itself.

    That is our current state of knowledge. Call it a modified version of the Out of Africa theory. The multiregional theory is no longer accepted.

    The faces of these 3000 years old giant Olmec head statues from central america do not look at all like northeast asians to me.

    Also look at the snub-nosed monkeys of east Asia:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snub_nosed_monkey

    Google images of them. They have snub-noses, almond shaped, slanted eyes, and roundish heads. They resemble Asians more than orangutans do, and they're based in Tibet/SW China region, which is where Asians are believed to have originated.

    Japanese macaques resemble Europeans as they have fair, pinkish skin, green eyes, narrow faces and long noses:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_macaques

    There's no geographic connection between the Japanese macaques and Europeans, but the Japanese macaques may resemble species that used to exist in western Eurasia.

    These may suggest that there was some degree of multi-regional evolution or admixture.
    , @Erik Sieven
    I´ve had always the feeling the flora and fauna of a region resemble the people who live there, although it is probably some kind of posterior rationalization. For example trees in Europe tend to big and massive , while those in east asia like bamboo are rather slender. Or take the Giant Panda, the animal which is a symbol of China nowadays: it has a big head, rather small paws, it is not very aggressive and has a very low fertility. All attributes one could associate with East Asians.
    One thing I am rather sure of is that dog breeds somehow reflect features of the people they have been bred by. For example the "big dogs" in East Asia are not as big as the big digs in Europe (with the exception of the tibetan mastiff). The Japanese Akita Inu (other than the American Akita) is a big dog, but not as big as a German Shepard I think, never the less like a Rottweiler or some other huge dog breed.

    "...blacks look somewhat like the african apes –chimps and gorillas…. asians looks somewhat like the asian ape, orangutan…. discuss…"

    That depends on what features you fixate, as Desmond Morris among others have pointed out. Blacks have woolly hair. Chimps and gorillas -- straight hair. Blacks often have thick lips. Chimps and gorillas -- thin lips. Black women are commonly regarded in many countries as curvier (relative to the rest of humanity) with regard to breasts and buttocks. Chimp and gorilla females -- not curvy. And while gorillas have black skin, a fair number of chimps have pale skin, so that doesn't help either.

    In short, it's a mixed bag. And as for orangutans looking like Asians? I don't see that at all. Ditto for snub-nosed monkeys (for one thing, there's a creature with really thick lips).

  • That’s assuming the out of Africa hypothesis is true. It’s just a hypothesis

    It hasn’t been a hypothesis for some time now. We are all descended from a relatively small group of humans that began to expand somewhere in East Africa some 80,000 years ago. Around 60,000 to 50,000 years ago that expansion began to spread to the other continents. We see some signs of admixture between them and archaic hominins, like the Neandertals in Europe, the Denisovans in East Asia, and other groups in Africa itself.

    That is our current state of knowledge. Call it a modified version of the Out of Africa theory. The multiregional theory is no longer accepted.

    The faces of these 3000 years old giant Olmec head statues from central america do not look at all like northeast asians to me.

    You raise an interesting point, one that occurred to me while writing this column. Were the Olmecs descended from these “First Americans”?

    Years ago I saw a map of haplogroup X distribution. It was heaviest in northeastern canada. I have not seen anyone address this distribution.

    Haplogroup X is most common today in Europeans and Southwest Asians. It is absent from present-day Siberians. It is present in 3% of Amerindians over a wide area of North America (and not just the northeast):

    "Haplogroup X has now been reported in contemporary members of seven specific unrelated
    language families (Athapaskan, Algonquian, Kiowa-Tanoan, Wakashan, Plateau Penutian, Northern Hokan, and Siouan) which are distributed throughout markedly noncontiguous geographic regions of the Canadian Subarctic/Great Lakes region, the Southwestern U.S., the Southern Plains and the Central and Northwest Coasts"

    I'm not hostile to the idea that some Europeans made it to North America before Columbus. We know the Norse were here, for instance. Another explanation is that this haplogroup used to be present in Siberia and then disappeared at the height of the last ice age. In general, Siberians show restricted genetic variability because their ancestors were repeatedly squeezed through population bottlenecks.

    Many genes have been inactivated and produce nothing at all. On the other hand, nothing in the human genome is truly junk because even the inactive parts influence the 3D configuration of active genes and how they relate to each other.

    Europeans migrated with East Asians to America? Geographically that doesn’t make sense.

    If you go back in time, you reach a point when the ancestors of Europeans and the ancestors of East Asians were the same people. Some academics peg this time of common origin at 40,000 years ago. Others, including me, lean to the onset of the last glacial maximum: 20,000 years ago.

    The ancestors of Kennewick Man avoided the glacial maximum (the coldest part of the last ice age) by living in the refugium of the coastal Northwest. So they didn't undergo the anatomical evolution that occurred in Northeast Asians during that time, like the evolution of the epicanthic eye fold. They consequently retained an older and more European-like appearance.

    This is something the advocates of the Solutrean hypothesis should consider. The Solutrean culture existed in Western Europe about 22,000 to 17,000 years ago. So it was very close in time to the common ancestors of all northern Eurasians.

    Insofar as Blackfoot faces, you’ll see lots of what could be called European features in the historic photographs, not only today’s Blackfeet.

    If we look at maternal DNA (which probably provides the best picture of the unmixed Blackfoot gene pool), the closest match (other than with other Amerindians) is with Northeast Asians.

    You may be right that those European features are of pre-Columbian origin. I don't believe the Kennewick humans died out. They simply became submerged by the people of the Clovis culture.

    Where is the evidence that these originated during the ice age or that they are ice age adaptations? It'd be one thing if they were thick coats of body fur or something, but they're not. Do epicanthic folds help prevent eyeballs from freezing or something? If, say, Chinese people could get by in the winter without wearing jackets or something I think people would have noticed by now. They still have to wear jackets like the rest of us.

    At any rate, has this idea ever even been tested? It seems like it would be pretty easy to test in a lab. It'd be easy to test cold tolerance or resistance in a lab.

    I didn’t dispute the land bridge, I dispute it could only have been a one way street and the only source of the Americas populace from Asia. There’s a lot of people in anthropology overemphasize the land bridge and Beringia, including yourself in the article, my opinion. Insofar as Blackfoot faces, you’ll see lots of what could be called European features in the historic photographs, not only today’s Blackfeet. Interesting coincidence their culture hero, Napi, is said to have been a White man. More than that, it is said all Blackfeet are descended from Napi. These oral histories have memories so far back as woolly mammoths, so somehow I doubt the possibilities are limited to Welsh, Basques and Vikings.

    Where you see more classic Asian features is in the surrounding tribes, particularly towards the West coast although as well the Cree often look more Asian.

    If you read my article, you see the case I set out, not least culture and genetics are often conflated by anthropologists in amazingly twisted ways to suit ‘science’ .. insofar as belief in genetics, I think it can be a useful tool but likely there’s a whole lot yet to be discovered and it’s far too soon to make any sweeping determinations, recalling western science held the appendix was an abandoned organ of indeterminate function for how long? Two or three hundred years? Now, we know it is a perfectly functional part of the intestine for restarting gut flora following a bout of dysentery.

  • The great book “Lies my Teacher Told Me,” notes that Columbus’ diary recorded that when they reached what is now Haiti, he found the Arawaks (local natives) in possession of spear points made of what they called “guanine.” The Indians said they got them from black traders who had come from the south and east. Guanine proved to be an alloy of gold, silver, and copper, identical to the gold alloy preferred by West Africans, who also called it guanine. Given that West Africa is half the distance to the Caribbean compared to Europe, this is not surprising.

    When Jacques Cartier mapped the mouth of the St Lawrence River in 1535, he reported there were a many Basque fishing boats already there. The Basques of northern Spain have always asserted that their fishermen where summering off the American coast for decades before 1492, harvesting cod and whale. The crew of Columbus’ ships were mostly Basque, including his navigator! There’s lots on the Internet about this plausible claim. 

    There is lots of hard archeological proof from old Basque fishing camps in the Americas from the early 1500s, but hard proof prior to 1492 has yet to appear. Fishermen set up Summer camps to gut and dry/salt their cod/whale meat and barrel whale oil before sailing home. Had the Basque discovered great fishing areas along the American coast prior to 1492, it is unlikely they would have announced this discovery to the world.

    language families (Athapaskan, Algonquian, Kiowa-Tanoan, Wakashan, Plateau Penutian, Northern Hokan, and Siouan) which are distributed throughout markedly noncontiguous geographic regions of the Canadian Subarctic/Great Lakes region, the Southwestern U.S., the Southern Plains and the Central and Northwest Coasts”

    http://www.researchgate.net/profile/Joseph_Lorenz/publication/12783057_Distribution_of_mtDNA_haplogroup_X_among_Native_North_Americans/links/00463515d887e8e0b1000000.pdf

    I’m not hostile to the idea that some Europeans made it to North America before Columbus. We know the Norse were here, for instance. Another explanation is that this haplogroup used to be present in Siberia and then disappeared at the height of the last ice age. In general, Siberians show restricted genetic variability because their ancestors were repeatedly squeezed through population bottlenecks.

    But, the only concentrated source of nicotine is tobacco, and cocaine is found only in the coca plant.

    Nicotine is present at high levels in many plants, not just tobacco.

    Most human DNA is junk (in my opinion, anyway), but the parts that are genes are definitely NOT junk

    Many genes have been inactivated and produce nothing at all. On the other hand, nothing in the human genome is truly junk because even the inactive parts influence the 3D configuration of active genes and how they relate to each other. My point is simply that genes vary considerably in their impact on growth and development. Some genes don’t do much of anything. Some produce structural proteins. Some regulate other genes. And some regulate those regulators.

    All Amerindians are genetically related to Northeast Asians. And if you don’t believe genetics, just look at their faces and their anatomy
     
    I didn't dispute the land bridge, I dispute it could only have been a one way street and the only source of the Americas populace from Asia. There's a lot of people in anthropology overemphasize the land bridge and Beringia, including yourself in the article, my opinion. Insofar as Blackfoot faces, you'll see lots of what could be called European features in the historic photographs, not only today's Blackfeet. Interesting coincidence their culture hero, Napi, is said to have been a White man. More than that, it is said all Blackfeet are descended from Napi. These oral histories have memories so far back as woolly mammoths, so somehow I doubt the possibilities are limited to Welsh, Basques and Vikings.

    Where you see more classic Asian features is in the surrounding tribes, particularly towards the West coast although as well the Cree often look more Asian.

    If you read my article, you see the case I set out, not least culture and genetics are often conflated by anthropologists in amazingly twisted ways to suit 'science' .. insofar as belief in genetics, I think it can be a useful tool but likely there's a whole lot yet to be discovered and it's far too soon to make any sweeping determinations, recalling western science held the appendix was an abandoned organ of indeterminate function for how long? Two or three hundred years? Now, we know it is a perfectly functional part of the intestine for restarting gut flora following a bout of dysentery.

    The faces of these 3000 years old giant Olmec head statues from central america do not look at all like northeast asians to me. Instead they look very much like west africans. Explain that away without making us laugh...

    yeah, the solutrean hypothesis is very interesting, and yes, academia is all about rigid dogma and politically correct kowtowing to the dominant paradigm.

    Years ago I saw a map of haplogroup X distribution. It was heaviest in northeastern canada. I have not seen anyone address this distribution.

  • “Most genes are of low selective value, often being junk DNA, so they change at a steady rate through random processes.”

    This is not quite right. Briefly, junk DNA is DNA that does not affect the phenotype if it is mutated. Most human DNA is junk (in my opinion, anyway), but the parts that are genes are definitely NOT junk. Genes can have different versions (alleles), and these alleles can be either adaptive, maladaptive, or neutral. Mutations in junk DNA are often proposed to be random, meaning we can construct a clock from them. This is a different thing entirely from relative frequency of gene alleles. There, you have different gene variations fluctuating in frequency because of their different fitness, or because of neutral drift.

  • Did ancient Egyptians use material only found in the new world?

    1992 Svetlana Balabanova, a well- respected pathologist associated with the University of Ulm took samples of hair, bone and soft tissue from the museum’s nine mummies. She tested the samples using radioimmunoassay and gas chromatography/mass spectrometry. Her results were surprising. Finding no opium, no lotus, the samples contained traces of nicotine and cocaine. The levels were low, but Balabanova believed they must have dropped over the centuries. If her interpretation was right, the levels originally equaled those in modern smokers and cocaine users. But, the only concentrated source of nicotine is tobacco, and cocaine is found only in the coca plant. Both are New World plants, and are generally considered to have been unknown elsewhere before 1492. The Munich mummies lived hundreds to thousands of years earlier. Balabanova was intrigued and, since 1992, has tested hundreds of mummies from Egypt, Sudan, China and Germany ranging from 800 to 3000 years of age. Nicotine showed up everywhere in an average of a third of the mummies from each site. Recently, other labs have begun testing Egyptian mummies and finding nicotine. Three samples from the Manchester Museum revealed traces of the drug, as have 14 samples taken directly from an archeological dig near Cairo.

    Most of the commenters here are strongly opinionated and since their opinions vary a great deal, many of them regard each other as ignorant, biased, or crazy wasters-of-space and would probably like to see them banned.

    Since I'm reluctant to do that, I've added a convenient Javascript-based feature that allows individual readers to make that decision. At the very top of each comment-thread is a "Commenters to Ignore" button that allows you to enter a list of commenters to skip. This list will be saved in a permanent cookie on your device/browser and hide all comments by those individuals across all the threads in the webzine (though you can still unhide them individually).

    So all you should feel free to go ahead and "ban" each other as much as you wish...
