    R-L48 in Portugal?

    Hello, I finally got around to getting my 23andMe test done and have some questions. My Paternal Haplogroup is R-L48. My father is Portuguese, but googling R-L48 people are talking about Germanic origins. Looking at the ancestry data from 23andMe it says I most likely have a French/German...

    Politics Vote for a president of USA - 2016 election

    I'm finding it bizarre how the media has created it's own fictional narrative for the election result. Everyone is in hysteria about this rise of the Alternative Right and that the result is a 'whitelash'. If anyone wants to take the time to actually look at the statistics for how people voted...

    maternal dna test results

    Thought I'd hi-jack this thread as it seemed a bit over the top to create a new one for a couple of questions. I had a DNA test bought for me as a gift a few months ago and recently got the results back, from what I've read on the site I think I know the answers to most of my questions but...

    Adolf Hitler's Aryan theory rubbished by science

    To make the point that Aryan theory is scientifically unfounded is to miss the point. The theory was pure propaganda to give the German people the mandate to justify their aggression against other racial or ethnic groups. How much of what modern politicians today say is actually true, why do...

    Can Arab nations live in a democracy?

    The media are calling this a military coup, but from what I can see you need a change of power for that to happen. In reality all the army did was remove Mubarak, then entered into a farce. They thought they could hold elections and then use the president as a puppet. Obviously Morsi wasn't...

    Who killed Napoleon?

    "It was three a.m. Longwood House was quiet and still. The dark-clad man held his candle over the open crate of bottles. He removed one, looked at the label — Vin d'Empereur — and with a gloved hand wiped away the thin layer of dust. Carefully, he extracted the cork. From his jacket pocket, he...

    Can Arab nations live in a democracy?

    Is democracy overrated? Democracy is championed as a universal good by the West, but we over-estimate its power to guarantee personal and political freedom, argues Roger Scruton. "In my view, the idea that there is a single, one-size-fits-all solution to social and political conflict around...
