Hope I'm not Shanghai'ing your thread but I thought this related topic might be of interest. Back 10 years ago or so there was a lot of DNA misinformation being spread on the web that the X mtDNA haplogroup among Native American proved the Jewish origin myth of Native Americans. At that time, I chased that rumor to ground and found that it was all based on a misinterpretation of a DNA survey

This has been studied but the results are inconclusive. Native Americans are predominantly belonging to type O today. However, since there may have been a population loss from European diseases up to 90%, this could represent a die-off of blood groups A and B and not necessarily represent the source population.

Hi Spiros, my J2 yDNA lineage traces back to 3200bc in Crete in the eastern, central mountains. I think that my later ancestor was conscripted by Roman Legion VI and carried to England.

That's a very interesting line of reasoning. I believe that this may have been researched earlier owning to presence of yDNA haplogroup R1 in the same tribes as the X2a mtDNA. However, this lineage of R1 was found to be linked to a founder population in Siberia and not the European lineages Spencer Wells claims that the other major Native American yDNA lineage, Q2, traces directly back to Ce

The European and middle-eastern branch of X belongs to X1. The Native American branch is X2a. The related lineage X2 is found in central Asia in the Altai Mountains. Neandertals were also present in the Altai which may correlate with the higher proportion of neandertal sequences found in Native Americans. In fact, all 5 Native American mtDNA groups are found in the Altai. The Altai appears to

There is a long list of proposed causes including: earthquakes, famine, introduction of iron age bladed weapons, new chariot designs, rise of a social class of mercenaries, class warfare, overturn of the city-state social model, pirates, Sea Peoples, and even World War 0. The rise of the mercenary class is particularly interesting to me as the "Hibaru" are numbered among them and the

Hi Susan. If I recall correctly, the Greeks adapting the Phoenician alphabet to record Homer's Iliad was considered the rebirth of Greek literacy in the 8th century.

Mine is "What caused the bronze age collapse?" Western civilization almost completely disintegrated around 1200bc, some say 1177bc. The Greeks actually forgot how to write and it was 4 centuries before they became literate again. The high cultures of the Minoans, Hittites, Mycenaeans, Trojans, Cypriats, Ugarites, Amorites disappeared. And even Egypt was knocked to its knees. Th

Thanks for posting this, Joseph. I did some internet searches and, from what I found, the only evidence supporting the idea that the B2 mitochondrial DNA, referenced in this case, did not come from Beringia is its complete absence from Alaska and western Canada. However, the parent lineage of B2 was found throughout east Asia with no geographic specificity. As you said, the press release c

I am very busy right now, but I think you are onto something, Thanos. One recent study of South American Native Americans claims that 10,000 years was not sufficient time for the two skull shapes to develop from the same source population, which is suggested by DNA evidence. There are some new studies in the last few years that I had not seen. The prevailing hypothesis on Native American orig

Actually, they continued their journey into the Americas, and THEN their skull shapes changed apparently. Very unsatisfying, I understand. Elongated skulls and a mythical underwater Mayan cave
