Well, how about that

We were "Civilized" Europeans before we were "Savage" Indians. Put that in your pipe and smoke it. lol

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Hogwash!

All these figures they throw out 17,000 years, 20,000 years, 44,000 years. How did they come to those figures?
It's all pure speculation and guesswork!

This is believable as the time frames given by those who spread the lie of evolution!

Ha!

Pure Hogwash!

Sorry to offend any 44,000 year old hogs out there in good old hogland!

The Daily Paul is really a wonderful place to search out some very interesting news, AND humor too!

Hillarious!

Thanks for the laugh!

Here's one that will really mess you up

Grotte des Pigeons, Taforalt, Morocco . Early Trade Routes? These 82,000 year old decorative beads were drilled as decorative neck-wear. This one should really blow your supposed time frame out of whack.

I've heard the claim a number

I've heard the claim a number of times that you are no more genetically related to someone of the same race than you are to someone of a different race. Interesting idea, though I've never really looked into it.

Questionable

I've heard, or possibly read somewhere, that all women on earth share the same DNA marker from a single race in Africa. Or something to that effect.

I know it's strange but once I find the info I'll post it here.

She is called mitochondrial eve.

Your DNA comes from two places within the cell. One is the nucleus and the other is your mitochondria. Sperm have no mitochondria, so everybody gets their mitochondrial dna from their mother because the egg cell has mitochondria. Using markers, researchers can find where and when a common ancestor of living peoples came from.

Amazing the stuff

they can figure out from DNA.

Fascinating!

Thanks for posting this, DeMolay. I love learning about these kinds of things.

I'll second that!

Amazing stuff!
