Mixture Between Jews and Gentiles in Europe

Saturday, March 3rd, 2012

All these studies are old news but I am going to post them to paint a picture, starting with this one.

In Southern Europe during the Roman Empire, there was HIGH mixture between Jews and Gentiles, both Caucasian. This was not a rare thing, mind you Zionists and Neo-Nazis who both try to allege that Jews are a pure race.

That’s when the Jewish communities in Italy, the Balkans, and North Africa originated, from Jews who migrated or were expelled from Palestine and from people who converted to Judaism during Hellenic times. During that period Jews proselytized with an effectiveness that would put today’s Mormons to shame: at the height of the Roman Empire, as the Roman historian Josephus chronicled, mass conversions produced 6 million practicing Jews, or 10 percent of the population of the Roman Empire. The conversions brought in DNA that had not been part of the original gene pool in the land of Abraham.

Of the non-Jewish Europeans, northern Italians were most genetically similar to the Jews, followed by the Sardinians and French. The Druze, Bedouins, and Palestinians were closest to the Iranian, Iraqi, and Syrian Jews.”

The article as well indicates support for the idea of the Mediterranean race (link to Coon). Basically, the entire area around the Mediterranean sea is linked by physical traits and ancestry. Europeans of the North are depigmented Mediterraneans, but the Mediterranean race also existed in the Middle East and North Africa. So if we accept this theory (and the theory is correct, Coon was and is right), Jews were “white” before they ever mixed with Italians. Both Jews and Italians had Mediterranean pigmentation and Caucasian bone features.

That is evidence of “a shared genetic history of related Middle Eastern and non-Semitic Mediterranean ancestors who chose different religious and tribal affiliations.”

Then in Eastern Europe, Ashkenazi Jews continued to mix (this does not apply to Sephardic Jews, but Sephardic Jews did mix with Italians). Not as much, but they did continue to mix. See This link

Ashkenazim also descend, in a smaller way, from European peoples from the northern Mediterranean region and even less from Slavs and Khazars. The non-Israelite Y-DNA haplogroups include Q (typically Central Asian) and R1a1 (typically Eastern European but the Ashkenazic variant comes from somewhere in Asia, probably Central Asia).

A few thoughts on eugenics & socialism

Sunday, December 12th, 2010

It is an unfortunate fact of reality that the modern so-called “left” has embraced the international bourgeoisie’s liberal rejection of eugenics – the scientific movement involving the active engineering of stronger, healthier and superior human beings.

For starters, we can immediately dismiss automatically the false claim that eugenics (inherently) promotes institutional racism, or is manifestly driven by ambitions of so-called “ethnic/racial cleansing.” That such claims have been repeatedly leveled against eugenics ad nauseum does nothing whatsoever to validate them.

In fact, the pre-eminent intellectual “father” of the modern eugenics movement, Sir Francis Galton, likened the philosophy and practice of eugenics to applying selective breeding standards to homo sapiens, the way in which humans go to great efforts to promote stronger, healthier genes in top-breed dogs and horses.

Secondly, at the private, voluntary level, we as biological creatures actively practice eugenics selectively in choosing mates for which we wish to produce offspring. It’s been well documented that women prefer partners who display alpha-male tendencies; while men equally seek out partners with certain characteristics in order to satisfy the biological-evolutionary urge to pass one’s genes on with the greatest chance of survival. That this is not the only consideration given when humans select a partner does not negate the very real fact that this is something that occurs, and we might as well accept.

Insofar as the development of socialism is concerned, there are several ways in which eugenics plays a direct role in facilitating the ascension of humanity towards a more advanced stage. Most importantly is the creation of a new mankind. From the ashes of the old, decrepit bourgeois order will arise a more efficient, more prosperous and more just order.

This new order will in turn be populated by the new heirs of the earth: the proletariat. If it is without a doubt that man’s social consciousness is the byproduct of his material environment and surroundings; his personal capacities are determined by biological necessity. While the restructuring of the means of production and revolutionary transformation of the entire base and superstructure will transform society, culture, art, philosophy, politics and all other conceivable institutions; new policies directing the physical and genetic well-being of the population will also be in order.

More practical, though no less important, is the question of resources. Eugenics policies aimed at neutralizing the burdensome cost of artificially maintaining human beings who would otherwise succumb to severe congenital disorders and those physically or mentally incapable of contributing to the good of society and the working class, should not expect to be sustained by the state or society at large. The population of seriously afflicted persons is a drain on the nation and the working class; by reducing their numbers and limiting their abilities to reproduce, society can in turn invest more resources dedicated to the benefit and welfare of those most capable of contributing something back, while creating far more favorable conditions for posterity.

The history and geography of human genes – Cavalli-Sforza

Friday, May 28th, 2010

The link
I just purchased this book off of ebay. I have a decent understanding of human genetics and race – a much better understanding than neo-nazis or race deniers – but I think this book will take me to the next level. Hopefully someone who reads this blog entry will follow the same path.

L. Luca Cavalli-Sforza and his collaborators Paolo Menozzi and Alberto Piazza have devoted fourteen years to one of the most compelling scientific projects of our time: the reconstruction of where human populations originated and the paths by which they spread throughout the world. In this volume, the culmination of their research, the authors explain their pathbreaking use of genetic data, which they integrate with insights from geography, ecology, archaeology, physical anthropology, and linguistics to create the first full-scale account of human evolution as it occurred across all continents. This interdisciplinary approach enables them to address a wide range of issues that continue to incite debate: the timing of the first appearance of our species, the problem of African origins and the significance of work recently done on mitochondrial DNA and the popular notion of an “African Eve,” the controversy pertaining to the peopling of the Americas, and the reason for the presence of non-Indo-European languages–Basque, Finnish, and Hungarian–in Europe.The authors reconstruct the history of our evolution by focusing on genetic divergence among human groups. Using genetic information accumulated over the last fifty years, they examined over 110 different inherited traits, such as blood types, HLA factors, proteins, and DNA markers, in over eighteen hundred, primarily aboriginal, populations. By mapping the worldwide geographic distribution of the genes, the scientists are now able to chart migrations and, in exploring genetic distance, devise a clock by which to date evolutionary history: the longer two populations are separated, the greater their genetic difference should be. This volume highlights the authors’ contributions to genetic geography, particularly their technique for making geographic maps of gene frequencies and their synthetic method of detecting ancient migrations, as for example the migration of Neolithic farmers from the Middle East toward Europe, West Asia, and North Africa.Beginning with an explanation of their major sources of data and concepts, the authors give an interdisciplinary account of human evolution at the world level. Chapters are then devoted to evolution on single continents and include analyses of genetic data and how these data relate to geographic, ecological, archaeological, anthropological, and linguistic information. Comprising a wide range of viewpoints, a vast store of new and recent information on genetics, and a generous supply of visual elements, including 522 geographic maps, this book is a unique source of facts and a catalyst for further debate and research.

The origins of Europe are Upper Paleolithic (South Asian Indian/Iranian/Afghan) and Mediterranean (Near Eastern). The claim is supported by the top left graph, which shows Europeans as intermediates between the two and smoothly blending with them. If we had a better study, we would see that it is Southern Europe that is blending into the Near East, and Eastern Europe that is blending into South Asia.  The results of the study shows what I originally thought to be the case. Europeans are closely related to neighboring Caucasoids and genetic drift occurs within the continents, often to a greater extent than the drift between them. In other words there is no magical line dividing Europeans from other Caucasoids, just gradual drift.

In addition, the Sahara Desert indeed separates North Africans from South Africans.  There is a huge gap.  North Africans represent another part of the Caucasoid cluster, and all Caucasoids do cluster.

Nothing surprises me here, but it’s good to see more evidence.  If you view the bottom graph, I have always held the view that Europe can be divided into the East, the South, and the Northwest. It seems the people who did this study agree with me, as they made such divisions.

While I have held most of the same views before I saw this study, it is good to see them confirmed.
