Paleogenomics Reveals Ancient Migrations

The New York Times Magazine has an interesting story on how paleogenomics is discrediting post-WW2 archaeology:

“1. The Ghosts of Teouma

A faint aura of destiny seems to hover over Teouma Bay. It’s not so much the landscape, with its ravishing if boilerplate tropical splendor — banana and mango trees, coconut and pandanus palms, bougainvillea, the apprehensive trill of the gray-eared honeyeater — as it is the shape of the harbor itself, which betrays, in the midst of such organic profusion, an aspect of the unnatural. The bay, on the island of Efate in the South Pacific nation Vanuatu, is long, symmetrical and briskly rectangular. In the expected place of wavelets is a blue so calm and unbroken that the sea doesn’t so much crash on the land as neatly abut it. From above, it looks as though a safe harbor had been engraved in the shoreline by some celestial engineer. …”


1.) Prehistoric mankind was like Game of Thrones with large scale migrations that largely wiped out and replaced preexisting populations rather than blending with them.

2.) This is what happened in Europe with ancient Indo-Europeans who migrated from the steppe of eastern Ukraine and Southern Russia.

3.) Remote Oceania was originally colonized by seafaring Austronesians from Taiwan who were later mysteriously replaced by aborigines from Papua New Guinea.

4.) Modern Indians are the product of the blending of two distinct populations.

The article basically laments that paleogenomics is a minefield for politically correct taboos. Imagine the light this will shed on, say, the origins of Hutu and Tutsis in Rwanda now that it is possible to tell not only where ancient populations originally migrated from but when and where they started to blend and to what extent they are mixed. What could this tell us about Jews and Palestinians and their claim to Israel? The ancient Egyptians? Perhaps Europeans in the New World prior to Columbus or the Vikings?

Note: David Reich has already warned that fantasies about racial equality are unlikely to survive the upcoming onslaught and the liberal establishment needs to start preparing society for a soft landing before it is utterly discredited. See also the geno-economists.

  1. “Prehistoric mankind was like Game of Thrones with large scale migrations that largely wiped out and replaced preexisting populations rather than blending with them.”

    Blending one race with an invading race destroys one race, and creates a new race in the lands it used to occupy. In history genocides are not unusual, they are ROUTINE.

    When global policy was put in place to flood all White countries and only White countries with unending millions of non-whites, and force assimilate the Whites with all those non-whites, the White race was marked for genocide. It is a deliberate, calculated, policy, that has one logical outcome: No whites anywhere on the planet.

    Every animal understands if it loses its territory it will die, so animals including apes patrol their borders and tear invaders to pieces. Only “hi IQ” Whites have difficulty understanding this concept, because animals, non-whites, and jews certainly aren’t surrending their territory to other races.

  2. Still calling bullshit because of the methodology. In 25 years we will probably be able to take a tooth and sequence the entire genome accurately but the error rate currently is very high.

  3. In 2007, Chinese geneticists discovered vast differences in the genetic makeup of
    Africans, Asians and Caucasians.

    They will soon report a breakthrough showing why some people such as Tibetans can live effortlessly at high altitudes while others can’t.

  4. Actually the Israeli/Jew thing is already well understood. The Hebrews of antiquity are in the dustbin of history. They are gone. That’s not necessarily an endorsement of the Khazar hypothesis. The modern Ashkenazi Jew is a mixed race group. Their name they get from the ASHKENAZ ethnic group (non Hebrew) , which is actually in the Old Testament, a kind of communal memory of their or their origins (if you don’t believe me, look it up).

    If Judea was an ethnically homogeneous place then Jesus would have no reason to assert his pure Hebrew credentials. As it was, Judea was multiracial, and the ‘Judeans’ (mistralated as ‘Jews’ in English) were mostly not Hebrew descendants of Abraham,, which Jesus stated EXPLICITLY. Ignored by almost all fundamentalist preachers.

  5. I love how the article has a giant photo of the Jewish David Reich smugly proclaiming that we Europeans “aren’t who we think we are.”

    I anticipate that the new research validating the “Kurgan Hypothesis” will be used to spin our ancient ancestors as “invaders” who “stole” Europe.

    They figure the “stolen continent” meme works in the colonies, might as use it as a battering ram in Europe to break down native resistance.

    Get ready for propaganda depicting the ancient Indo-Europeans as proto-Nazis.

  6. The “ancient Indo-Europeans who migrated from the steppe of eastern Ukraine and Southern Russia” DID NOT replace the preexisting European populations. I’m sure some Jew or delusional dumb nazi is pushing this lie Mr. Reich is probably a Jew.
    To learn a bit about genetics I recommend Iosif Lazaridis.
    AND ancient Indo-Europeans aka Aryans, a mix of North Eurasians and an Armenid population, certainly did not resemble a typical 21st century Swedish guy. Unless the typical 21st century Swedish has Middle Eastern background.

  7. Research Tartaria. Supposedly forbidden history not for the peasants consumption.

    They lie about EVERYTHING!

  8. No one’s commenting on this post – but I think it’s very important. I’ve been wading through the Jew York Slimes piece. [It’s] very dense and confounding. As it was designed to be.

    Thank you for pulling the salient elements out of the muck.

    I understand why the (((author))) writes in such and obtuse manner; the actual science may derail the goals of the Kalergi Plan. (((They))) don’t need ot worry, though. Most tax slaves are too busy trying to keep a roof over their heads and put food on the table to bother with such genetic esoterica.

  9. O’Brien silenced him by a movement of his hand. ‘We control matter because we control the mind. Reality is inside the skull. You will learn by degrees, Winston. There is nothing that we could not do. Invisibility, levitation–anything. I could float off this floor like a soap bubble if I wish to. I do not wish to, because the Party does not wish it. You must get rid of those nineteenth-century ideas about the laws of Nature. We make the laws of Nature.’

    ‘But you do not! You are not even masters of this planet. What about Eurasia and Eastasia? You have not conquered them yet.’

    ‘Unimportant. We shall conquer them when it suits us. And if we did not, what difference would it make? We can shut them out of existence. Oceania is the world.’

    ‘But the world itself is only a speck of dust. And man is tiny–helpless! How long has he been in existence? For millions of years the earth was uninhabited.’

    ‘Nonsense. The earth is as old as we are, no older. How could it be older? Nothing exists except through human consciousness.’

    ‘But the rocks are full of the bones of extinct animals–mammoths and mastodons and enormous reptiles which lived here long before man was ever heard of.’

    ‘Have you ever seen those bones, Winston? Of course not. Nineteenth-century biologists invented them. Before man there was nothing. After man, if he could come to an end, there would be nothing. Outside man there is nothing.’

    ‘But the whole universe is outside us. Look at the stars! Some of them are a million light-years away. They are out of our reach for ever.’

    ‘What are the stars?’ said O’Brien indifferently. ‘They are bits of fire a few kilometres away. We could reach them if we wanted to. Or we could blot them out. The earth is the centre of the universe. The sun and the stars go round it.’

    Winston made another convulsive movement. This time he did not say anything. O’Brien continued as though answering a spoken objection:

    ‘For certain purposes, of course, that is not true. When we navigate the ocean, or when we predict an eclipse, we often find it convenient to assume that the earth goes round the sun and that the stars are millions upon millions of kilometres away. But what of it? Do you suppose it is beyond us to produce a dual system of astronomy? The stars can be near or distant, according as we need them. Do you suppose our mathematicians are unequal to that? Have you forgotten doublethink?’

  10. Many “Native-Americans” have legends of a pre-existing red-haired race that was here when they arrived from Asia. Columbus noticed some blue eyed Indians. This has been explained as a lost Viking colony but what if it was the descendants of Solutreans? I trust it we have all seen Ice Age Columbus on the Discover channel discussing the Solutrean hypothesis?

  11. Genetic research continues to confirm most of the claims that evil racists have been making for decades (or even centuries in some cases).
