Gregory Cochran briefly reviews ancient DNA geneticist David Reich’s Who We Are and How We Got There at West Hunter:

Who We Are: #2 Purity of Essence
Posted on March 29, 2018 by gcochran9

Again and again he says that races aren’t ‘pure’ – and he’s right. They’re the product of various mixtures of earlier populations, some such mixtures going back as 50,000 years [and farther] (when some peoples picked up genes from Neanderthals and Denisovans) to more recent examples like the formation of northern Europeans – a mixture of the Mesolithic hunter-gatherers [aka West Hunters], Anatolian farmers [aka, Early European Farmers], and fresh-off-the steppe Yamnaya pastoralists [aka, steppe nomads, Aryans, etc.]. That plus continuing natural selection, that gradually made northern Europeans paler and more lactose tolerant. And turned their brown eyes blue.

10,000 years ago, there was no population, even early risers, that looked like and was genetically very similar to the modern Dutch.

Operationally, how is that different from a situation in which Europeans had been living in the same place for eons? Answer: there isn’t any difference.

If that formation process had happened 100 years ago, there would be differences. …

Is 5,000 years long enough for thorough shuffling? Sure. So what’s the different between having been formed 5000 years ago and formation a million years ago? – there isn’t any.

Why does Reich think that ancient purity, or the lack of it, makes any practical difference? I don’t know. Maybe he thinks it’s emotionally important to other people. But if members of a group only 1200 years old are on average better at chess – they’re better at chess. Degree of antiquity doesn’t matter. if they’re well-mixed, they have a new flavor of their own.

Also, Reich says “Mixture is fundamental to who we are, and we need to embrace it, not deny that it occurred. ” Obviously denying admixture is silly – why would anyone deny reality? Other than every social scientist in the United States, that is. Every facet of reality should be acknowledged (it improves your odds) – but that in no way says that we should necessarily embrace it. I mean, death by malaria played a big role in shaping humanity – should we be Morris-dancing in honor of our Lord Anopheles? …

The arrival of the Yamnaya almost certainly resulted in lots of dead Early European Farmer men (the previously common Y lineages are almost gone today) and the kidnapping and rape of the younger, prettier EEF women. If one of those men on the losing side didn’t quite see the big picture (eventually resulting in you and me) and did his level best to stop ‘mixture’ in its bloody tracks, I for one can understand his point of view. How was he better from the invaders?

“Because we live here.”

This is a reference to what is turning out to have been one of the key intellectual debates of the late 20th Century, between noted savants Charlie Sheen and Patrick Swayze in John Milius’s Red Dawn:

Reich says this, and things like this, apparently because he’s trying to curry favor with current-year liberalism, whose most fervent tenet is that Europe just has to import as many dumb, hostile people as possible. Rather weird – you don’t normally think of endorsing a bloody Völkerwanderung as a way of proving you’re really PC at heart – but it’s year 2018!

Maybe he actually believes this too, but I don’t see a lot of Somalis working in his lab. “Belief” – it’s complicated.

    Sorry, but would someone please explain the reference to “early risers”? Why would anyone think that a population who wake up early in the morning would be like the modern Dutch? Are the Dutch famous for being early risers? Or is this just a joke that I don’t get?

    What are you even talking about

  23. One thing I would be curious to see is how much of this Y chromosome Yamnaya steppe ancestry is present in people of the Caucasus, like the Georgians. This area is very close to where those proto-Indo-European invaders originated. Yet the Georgians do not speak an Indo-European language (nor a Turkic-Altaic one from later invaders). It would seem that their mountainous surroundings provided them with a degree of protection from the Yamnaya invaders that at least allowed them to retain their language. The Basques are probably a similar case.

  24. Of course, what the Deep State running the West is doing is suicidal. Of course, it will, if not stopped, produce a massive amount of bloodshed and cultural chaos that almost certainly will lead to civilizational collapse.

    Not merely disruption, but collapse.

    Of course, most of the Elites responsible know that their policies could produce mass slaughter, but they are willing to take the risk because they see the gamble as making them and theirs a virtually permanent Elite because those who could oppose them will be made a new type of serf.

    It is suicidal insanity on a grand scale, built from the one source: the rebellion against God and Church.

    The Jewish part began with choosing anti-Christ. From then on, Jews as a group would be naturally revolutionary, disruptive of, even knowingly acting to utterly pollute and destroy, any white society that allowed them to start amassing wealth and thence power.

    The Jewish insanity today is meant to permanently remove any possibility that Christendom can revive. It is insanity because to achieve that goal, Moslems must be used, Moslems by the hundreds of millions. And that means that Jews, to arrange matters so that Europe and its recent areas of mass colonization must be inundated with peoples who are either as defined by being anti-Christ/anti-Church as they are, or else are naturally destructive because of criminality and lack of family stability (which produces even more crime), must trust Moslems to be their pawn to get Whitey without ever turning on their Semitic kin.

    And that is insanity on a scale impossible to register. The Moslem view of Jews is that of the heirs of the brother sent into the desert who intends to get even. And recent history means that the next time Moslems can strike at Jews, which requires the vestiges of Christendom to run preponderantly by non-whites, they will strike to exterminate Jews, to do what Hitler is accused to trying and failing to do. And Moslem leaders will be happy to sacrifice a half billion or more Moslems in order to exterminate the Jewish problem as they see it. Only the can their honor as the heirs of Ishmael be restored.

    The Jewish part of the suicidal insanity of the West is about Jews shaking their fist at God and demanding that God end this Jesus stuff, because they are the Chosen Race and they will not allow this Christendom to spit in their faces every day.

    The white part of the suicidal insanity of the West is about guilt that requires punishment. Deep down, there is guilt over the rebellion against Christendom, but like Judas, the West Elite’s refuse to repent and kneel and ask forgiveness. Instead, like Judas, the West’s Elites choose suicide.

    The only way the Jewish part of this horror show could gain traction was for the rebellion against Christ and Church, against Christendom, to succeed, and then to be spread globally by secularized empires desperate to prove that their rebellion against God would make a better world.

    Only the blind miss the point: the white Gentile rebellion against Christ, Church, and Christendom is perfectly analogous the Jewish rejection of Jesus as the Christ.

    Jews did not sneakily ruin anything. They simply welcomed increasing numbers of white Gentiles into their camp of rebellion against Christ/Church/Christendom. Nothing Jews have done the past 3 centuries to get us to this point could have been accomplished without whites rebelling against Christendom.

    And over time Jews came to take primary control of the much larger camp to revel against and replace Christendom.

    And yes, the last stage of replacing Christendom is to replace the peoples of Christendom.

    Remind us again. What kind of name is "Ali Choudhury"?
  30. 10,000 years ago, there was no population, even early risers, that looked like and was genetically very similar to the modern Dutch.

    I don’t enjoy publicly disagreeing with Greg, but on this point he is wrong. The modern European phenotype – pale skin with various hair colors (red, blond, black) and eye colors (blue, green, brown) – was already in place by 10,000 years ago, and probably several thousand years earlier.

    It didn’t exist throughout Europe. Western Europeans had a combination of dark skin and blue/green eyes until very late in time. This we know from ancient DNA found at sites in England (11,000 BP), Luxembourg (8,000 BP), and Spain (7,000 BP). The picture is very different, however, if we look at northern and eastern Europe. There, well before the advent of farming, the modern European phenotype was already present. We know this from ancient DNA found at sites in Sweden (8,000 BP), Karelia in Russia (7500-7000 BP), and Samara in Russia (7,500-7000 BP).

    Less ancient DNA is available from earlier periods. We know that blond hair was present in mid-Siberia as early as 18,000 years ago. Using indirect methods, two research teams have estimated the appearance of pale skin at 19,000 – 11,000 BP (Beleza et al., 2013) and 19,200– 7,600 BP (Canfield et al., 2014). Most likely, the modern European phenotype came into being fairly rapidly at some point during the last ice age, probably 20,000 to 15,000 years ago.

    I agree with Greg’s main point. Evolutionarily speaking, a lot can happen over 10,000 years, or 5,000 years, or even, in some cases, ten generations. Indeed, the human genome has changed much more over the past 10,000 years than over the previous 100,000 years. Saying that “mixture is fundamental to who we are” is as moronic as saying that change is fundamental to who we are. Most change is for the worse, not for the better. Evolution is about selecting those few changes—sometimes one in a million—that are for the better. The same with mixture. We know that some Neanderthal genes introgressed into the modern gene pool, but most of them proved to be deleterious and were thus removed through selection. Evolution isn’t about finding something new and different. It’s about finding something that works better.

    So it looks like there are 4 East Asians, 2 South Asians, and a bunch of white people.

    Nick Patterson and Iñigo Olalde give us a grand total of one or two white gentile men in the group.

    Then why are Jewish marital laws so strict that they have led to inbreeding, exaggerating characteristics such as Tay-Sachs?

    Well, there are about 80 million Germans on this planet (not counting Austrians and German-Swiss), so that should be enough to prevent any significant inbreeding problems from arising among the Germans. How many Jews are there in the world today?

    I don't know, but a lot of them are marrying out anyhow.

    First of all, not a sentence, Cochran. Yeah, that last wasn’t either, but I don’t fancy myself a geneticist (who should have evolved toward complete sentences by now).

    OK, just because nobody is out in front of me on this:

    There's a silent epidemic in western civilization, and it is right under our noses. Our jaws are getting smaller and our teeth crooked and crowded, creating not only aesthetic challenges but also difficulties with breathing. Modern orthodontics has persuaded us that braces and oral devices can correct these problems. While teeth can certainly be straightened, what about the underlying causes of this rapid shift in oral evolution and the health risks posed by obstructed airways? Sandra Kahn and Paul R. Ehrlich, a pioneering orthodontist and a world-renowned evolutionist, respectively, present the biological, dietary, and cultural changes that have driven us toward this major health challenge.

    The earliest recorded case of impacted wisdom teeth belongs to the renowned "Magdalenian Girl," a nearly complete 13,000- to 15,000-year-old skeleton excavated in France in 1911 and acquired by The Field Museum in 1926.

    Examination of new high-quality digital X-rays revealed that the wisdom teeth were, in fact, impacted, and had thus failed to erupt at the normal time. This is significant because impacted wisdom teeth are thought to be the result of dietary changes associated with later developments in human cultures.
     

    Blonde hair blue eyes and delicate features all become increasingly common as you retrace the rolling conquest of the Yamnaya by going farther into northern Europe. For generation after generation

    The arrival of the Yamnaya almost certainly resulted in lots of dead Early European Farmer men (the previously common Y lineages are almost gone today) and the kidnapping and rape of the younger, prettier EEF women.
     
    And then the descendants of that generation moved on, repeated the process and so on.

    Is 5,000 years long enough for thorough shuffling?

    Pretty girl. Needs a new last name.

    Is 5,000 years long enough for thorough shuffling? Sure. So what’s the different between having been formed 5000 years ago and formation a million years ago? – there isn’t any.
     
    Of course. The "purity" thing is just a stupid strawman constructed in a deliberate effort to mislead.

    Isn’t this “purity” Reich talks about essentially in-breeding?

    Where does the pent up emotions come from in Cochran's writings. He can't resist sniping and doing drive -bys but somehow has no time to make his point whatever it is. So, what really is his point in this piece? That everybody is beneath him and not worth engaging in argument?

    I kind of like his curmudgeonly style. Keeps things from being boring. I think the attempted professionalization of many fields (including through the overemphasis on math, models, and high fallutin jargon) has driven away the average guy who would be interested in the field. This is why explainers have become such an important intermediary and this is why the leftists try all they can to capture the role of explainers.
