A journey into science begins. A Penn State study has “found” that all of us are descended from a single human who lived 10,000 years ago, somewhere between India and the Middle East.
I’m not particularly expert in the field of genetics, but clearly, this is a very bold statement which probably lacks a solid foundation.
Though it would, to some extent, make sense if we just showed up just before civilization began (unless of course you believe the Atlantis theory, in which case civilization and thus White people are much older; full disclosure: I believe the Atlantis theory). It would not make sense, however, that the color of our skin is what enables us to build glorious civilizations.
From Irish Central:
A major new US study at Penn State University has found that Europeans’ light skin stems from a gene mutation from a single person who lived 10,000 years ago.
Scientists made the discovery after identifying a key gene that contributes to lighter skin color in Europeans.[…]
Keith Cheng from Penn State College of Medicine reported that one amino acid difference in the gene SLC24A5 is a key contributor to the skin color difference between Europeans and West Africans. This is undoubtedly where the Irish get their light skin from.
‘The mutation in SLC24A5 changes just one building block in the protein, and contributes about a third of the visually striking differences in skin tone between peoples of African and European ancestry,’ he said.
They studied segments of genetic code that have a mutation and are located closely on the same chromosome and are often inherited together.
The mutation, called A111T, is found in virtually every one of European ancestry.
A111T is also found in populations in the Middle East and Indian subcontinent, but not in high numbers in Africans.
I can’t say that I dislike the idea that we all shared an ancestor just 10,000 years ago. We are brothers and sisters.
The fact that it is borderline illegal to talk about race as more than skin color makes the topic rather impotent. Especially when many Asians, Koreans in particular, have the same skin tone we have –
– and I don’t think anyone is arguing that this is because we mixed with the Koreans – Arabs and Indians got their light skin as a result of miscegenation, but Koreans are a completely separate race.
Oh, but Dr. Cheng is arguing something, says the Daily Mail:
The pattern of people with this lighter skin colour mutation suggests that the A111T mutation occurred somewhere between the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent.
‘This means that Middle Easterners and South Indians, which includes most inhabitants of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, share significant ancestry,’ Professor Cheng said.
This mutated segment of DNA was itself created from a combination of two other mutated segments commonly found in Eastern Asians – traditionally defined as Chinese, Japanese and Korean.
‘The coincidence of this interesting form of evidence of shared ancestry of East Asians with Europeans, within this tiny chromosomal region, is exciting,’ said Professor Cheng.
‘The combining of segments occurred after the ancestors of East Asians and Europeans split geographically more than 50,000 years ago; the A111T mutation occurred afterward.’
So we became White because we mutated the same as the Asians? Or we mutated from Asians?
And who decided that we split with the East Asians 50,000 years ago? It seems that would be an archaeological issue, as surely geneticists are not claiming to be able to date the time of mutations. This is an ongoing problem with the highly specialized nature of modern science – experts in any given field are required to simply take experts from other fields at their word, as they themselves are too wrapped up in their own area of discipline to know what is going on in the other sciences. Anyway, archeology is a science I have found to be generally lacking; carbon dating appears to be about as accurate as Jew psychiatrist brain-scan voodoo.
The theory of Darwinian evolution, in itself, has many issues which I have yet to see properly explained.
It is most regrettable that all of our sciences are regulated by the Jews.
In a recent piece I wrote on Darwinism, we had a bit of debate going on. Which is fine. People have a right to believe as they wish. Surely, we have more pressing matters at hand.
Here you can witness William Dembski destroy the nerdy Holocaust-confirming troll Michael Shermer.
Shermer claims he is not a Jew. You be the judge.
Dembski’s theory of “specified complexity” is yet to be disproved.
Because Shermer isn’t really qualified to debate the topic, in the interest of being fair and balanced, here is the explanation from a top expert on why intelligent design is wrong.
Note that he isn’t talking about the scientific theory of intelligent design. Pop atheists don’t really do that. He is instead talking about genitalia how you can’t breath in outer space.
Speaking of outer space, how do you all feel about the theory that we originated from there?
