    Question Why did the British Monarchy stop marrying Brits for 250 years?

    Probably looked at their offspring and said - ouch. They realized they needed new blood - that inbreeding had its consequnces. LMAO! :ROFLMAO:

    The Canaanites and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict

    It's very clear you have your head up your butt. And dismantling your points and your strawman is not nitpicking.

    The Canaanites and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict

    Nice Strawman! No, I started out with a basic point as a response to DrWho33's comment that Palestine was 'inhabited and settled.' Here is my first remark on the subject: Palestine was sparsely inhabited and very much so only in the main towns except Jerusalem and a few others. It was very...

    The Canaanites and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict

    Let's tidy-up this notion that Herodotus did not know of Jews (Judeans and later Syrians) or some of their history and that Palestine being a possible relation to the Greek word for wrestler. Herodotus, as mentioned earlier, noted that the Syrians of Palestine were circumcised (Book II.104). He...

    The Canaanites and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict

    No, I'm simply giving an example of the low population and under development outside of the main towns. There is plenty more. Again, and upward bound of 500,000 no matter where they are is low for all of Palestine in 1880. Here is a simply wiki look at what B.L. said: From the mass of detail...

    The Canaanites and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict

    Where did I say that this justifies them being kicked out? They have had their chance at many partition plans even though they have plenty of Arab States and they still rejected everyone of them.

    The Canaanites and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict

    Approximately upwards of 500,000 people in all of Palestine in 1880 is not 'well populated' particualrly when in a few main towns. "Collecting" is not ownership under Islamic land laws at this time. Lets see what this guy says: Voyages and Travels in the Levant in the Years 1749-1752, by...

    The Canaanites and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict

    I'm quit aware of that and the fact that they were mostly Canaanites themselves. Herodotus is not using etymology he is possibly making some sort of pun on the word wrestler for a region associated with the historic people that are in the area he notes as Syria. This story would have been...

    The Canaanites and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict

    a) Gee an argument from silence. Why would he call them Hebrews or Jews? This was during the Persian rule. Thus, after the conquest of the Assyrians and the Baby's. Who do you think they conquered in that area? And how would these people's history not be known by the time of Herodotus going...

    How would know? I'm an American who speaks English. Maybe that will help!

    The Canaanites and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict

    a) Herodotus certainly knew of the story. It is irrelevant whether he meet Jacob who probably did not exist. Certainty is not a good thing when dealing with ancient words that sound similar. Just stop! Philistines are a people not a geographic region. b) I'm not confusing anything - I'm saying...

    Stonehenge Was Built by Black People, according to Children’s History Book

    So much non-historical BS based on some ancient European having darker skin than today's average European. As if just having darker skin makes modern Europeans something other than the indigenous Europeans. The degree of categorization based simple on skin tone is the most non-historical and...

    The Canaanites and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict

    One possible origin for the name Palestine, as first used by Herodotus, is the relationship to the Greek word for 'wrestler' (παλαιστής) and thus Herodotus was using it as pun on the story in the Bible of Jacob/Israel wrestling with the angel and his name being changed. Thus, Palestine is the...

    Archaic DNA Matches - GEDmatch

    In using this free tool I noticed that I had 5cM match for three references: Loschbour, LUX, 8ky, (two segments larger than 5 cM); ESP16 Esperstedt, GER, 2,500 BC; and 04 Oakington, Cambs., ENG, 400-545 AD. And one with 6cM - Bichon, SWI, 13,700 BP. What is going on here? Are not the...

    When did Western Hunter Gatherers become White?

    I'm wondering if anyone has put the Tarim mummies DNA in a predictor to see what skin tone they have given that we see they have light skin yet they don't have the snips for light skin (INM)?

    Haplogroup H6a1b3a

    Yeah, it interesting to think that this close in time both my Y-DNA and mt-DNA have a close ancestor to this guy. His Y-DNA is also mine as well I-DF29. So both my Paternal and Maternal have an ancestor to this cat not too far removed.

    Haplogroup H6a1b3a

    Wow, it's been a long while since I visited this thread and still nothing - ha! I did notice from this paper https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6790770/ (Table 1) there is an individual (o11009) from the late Neolithic and Bronze Age Sweden (1930-1750 BCE) with H6a1b3.

    haplogroup i1a

    East Scotland - sounds good! Well if I come back positive for this snp then we will have one whose ealiest ancestor was from England - although that is from Census records so I guess an earlier ancestor from Scotland could be possible?
