I drop to a site accidentally.

ot is about art and Anthropometrics

It is called Morton's toe or Greek feet

the photo bellow explains all

http://a.media.newsbomb.gr/items/cache/d0b08b40c283e283fd4fa1287f36b28f_XL.jpg



1) majority of people have the first type its name also normal feet

2) is less common than first

3) the 3rd type is found from ancient times in ancient Greek sculptures at almost 95% and less in Roman-Latin BUT EXIST IN EVERY COPY OF GREEK STATUE !!!! but in other culture. that means ancient Greeks knew a genetic secret or they just copy what they see,

the author insist that this is a gennetic anomaly or mutation and not a bone structure anomaly (a bad form)

If morton's toe is a cleronomical genetic mutation then probably except nose is the second anthropometric characteristic we find.

Statistics prove that Greeks have significant Morton's toe than other populations
second comes the Roman type !!!
and finnaly normal.

does anyone know if it is connected with DNA ?
maybe an exclusive mark? or majority of Greeks suffer from bad bone structure?

Gentlemen search your feet.

by the toe test, clearly roman for me

plus flat feet, indicating close to the sea ie water and not a mountaineer

Definitely more like no. 2 Roman than no. 1 Egyptian. I don't know of any Italian ancestry, though.

I am definitely not Roman but I have No. 2. The kind of shoes should also be considered. With pointy shoes in vogue more fashionable people might end up with No. 3.

Sorry, I checked my toes and it is No. 3. So I am Greek. lol.

I personally don't think the arch of your toes has anything to do with a nationality considering most nations are an amalgamy of different haplogroups, sort of a nonsense thread lol

100% of neanderthal footprints have greek toe. 100% of every other fossil footprint has egyptian toe. Roman toe is in between. It's a multigenic trait so that makes sense.

It is manifestly untrue that all religions believe in one God. That is only true for the believers in the monotheistic religions that developed in the Middle East: Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

Just as one example, has it escaped the attention of some readers that there are some 950 million Hindus in the world, just to use one estimate, not to mention the Buddhists etc. etc.?

I also think some humor would be in order here. Does anyone really think that ethnicity could be determined in this way or that anyone would seriously propose that?

Oh, to get back on topic: Roman toes, Greek nose, Celtic fringe skin, CM jaw, EEF hair and eyes...
Hey, wait a minute....

I DID :laughing: Yetos Some here are saying it is silly. I do not. Greek foot is a dominant trait controlled by DNA. It is also called Scottish toe (per a racist forum I chanced upon). So, what connects the Greeks and the Scots? How about R1b Y DNA? It is also called Royal Toe. What Y DNA is prominent in European royalty? R1b DNA.

I have Greek toe as do several of my cousins. I was told by one that Greek toe in Greece is often cited as descent from royalty as a kind of tourist patter. Southern Greece has some 28% R1b Y DNA. So, it is likely linked to one or a tight few DNA sources, spread as a dominant trait to other Y DNA and mt DNA.

I think those that poo-poohed your post are targeting you rather than using their heads. How else does a dominant gene get transmitted widely (among many other DNA), but is prevalent trait among a certain Y DNA population?

Angela

Nobody is making fun of Yetos. Teasing is different from ridiculing. However, to think you can tell y lineage from toes is indeed silly.

The majority of people in Greece are NOT R1b, yet virtually every Greek statue or copy of a Greek statue I've ever seen either has "Greek" or "Roman" toes, long toes anyway. I think it's like the absolutely parallel to the forehead version of the Greek nose: I just think it's what they thought was beautiful.

The majority of people in Britain ARE R1b, and yet I read somewhere that the majority of their feet are either Celtic or "Egyptian".

I'm trying to picture it. :)

Lucky you didn't break anything else. No matter what Americans think, soccer is no game for sissies. Those headers are very dangerous, for one thing. I'm sure cycling stresses the body as well.

Any sustained physical activity can be dangerous, of course. I broke my nose on a ballet barre because some idiot girl fell into me just as I was coming up from a grand plie. It happens. My ankles were sprained so many times once I went on pointe that I finally had to give up.

I console myself by thinking of ugly ballerina calves, feet and toes. :)

It's really no joking matter. Some of the pictures are so disturbing I won't even link to them.

Still, at the time I was so obsessed that I would have given anything to continue.

Yes, Classical Era statues have feet where either the second toe is slightly longer than the first or they're the same size. I probably first noticed it because of my own feet.

23andme gets it slightly wrong for me. My second toe is indeed a tiny bit longer than my first, not like Morton's toe or anything. We must have the same set of alleles for this.

My second toe is not significantly longer, and the way they curl makes it almost appear as though the Big toe is longer or the same length. But when I press them flat, the second toe is indeed longer.

Hehe, we might throw a few Greeks into the ring also :).

My folks have done nothing really remarkable. But they did survive and boy they did! First the Persians on the way to Greece, then the Celts, the Macedonians under Alexander, the Romans, the Avars, the Vandals, The Ostrogoths, the Bulgarians, the Slavs, the Crusaders, the Seljuk Turks, the Ottoman Turks, the Balkan Wars, WWI, The aftermath of WWI and the exchange of populations between Greece and Turkey. Then WWII and the Greek Civil War. Not to mention the different plagues and endemic malaria and of course inbreeding.

Let me pat myself in the back for my ancestors accomplishments but I am afraid I might pull a muscle or something. :)

My sister's third toe is the longest on her foot. Sadly, at least one of her children has inherited this unfortunate malformation. I attribute it to fallout from Three Mile Island, which occurred twenty months before she was born, and we are downwind from the site, and also one of her friends born around the same time suffers from 'Missy Foot', which is what I call the condition.
