The contest of Genetic Research

I found this article very interesting:

The agendas, debates, research, and perhaps pseudo-research continue, for whatever they're worth, if anything.

For the recored, my ancestry is in large part Ashkenazi, therefore perhaps Khazar, and I don't grant any of this any defining impact on who I am as a person - my fundamental identity is 1st, as Life, 2nd as Human - the rest, is just window dressing, arbitrarily decided by happenstance of birth - it is often fun and colorful, but on the dark side, easily made divisive and dangerous, and so should not be given too much importance. Human consciousness is the defining and unifying factor in our species - it is wise to focus on that and on evolving one's own to the highest possible brilliance.
