    Balts also have
    a trickster in Velnias
    custom to burn a log on winter solstice
    concept of world tree (as per Latvian folk songs)
    :)

    Full quote I guess is this:
    “Even if it comes from the X chromosome of the father, it gets deactivated."
    From X chromosome..

    What I am saying is - cognitive functions do not come exclusively...

    @Dagne,
    I think you are still missing the point :)

    Humans have not just 1 chromosome (the XX or XY one) but 23 of them - one sex based (XX, XY) and 22 autosomal. And genes responsible for IQ are...

    To sum up.
    I believe level of IQ is determined by “team” of genes with most important “player” coming from X chromosome. Like goalkeeper in football (the real football, Euro one).
    If goal keeper...

    “So you think your intelligence could not have been inherited from your mother's side?”
    Could, but why would me and my sister (same father mathematician) be more gifted than my brother (different...

    Well..
    Me and my sister from same father (math guy) have top high IQ. My brother from different father (not math guy) has somewhat lower IQ. Still pretty smart.

    My wife struggled with math at...

    So, I am interested in those R1a samples of 500 AD you mentioned earlier, because I know only of this sample:
    It is highly likely but not formally confirmed that n was L1025, so Baltic type. Below...

    1) did not get your argument
    2) update yourself on autosomes. When something can be modeled as 1/4 Erzya, 3/4 Lithuanian. It is not meant to be taken literally. It just shows you direction from...

    So, you don’t have data :( that is so sad.

    But we have some ancient dna, so maybe we can get somewhere:)

    First N1c of Baltic type (Baltic_IA) so far was found in Northern Lithuania 200-500 AD...

    Votians :) do you think they had higher percent of N than Estonians? Maybe they made percent of N lower than higher.

    Repeat it again :) but this time if you could back it up by facts (y-dna N...

    What Bronze Age?
    Baltic BA samples from Kivutkalns (-1000; -200 BCE) cover several centuries and are 100% R1a and very similar to that Lithuanian BA sample that was also R1a, and looked pretty much...

    Nah, not Votians... there is no reason to believe those guys had N lines under L1025, M2783 (where they come from L550 and Estonian-ish N lineages should be more common), which is what you notice in...

    Yes, BS-II languages underwent Satemization after Celtic and Germanic already left the core area.
    Reasons to Satemization are unclear. It is a repeating phenomenon in languages. French had their own...

    Where would they get that mass R1a from then? After Northern War? From Poland or Russia to Northern Curonia?

    I remember that study.
    Estonians when compared to East Balts (both LV and LT) have less N %, somewhat more R1a %, increased I1 %.
    In former Livonian areas it is similar-ish.
    So, my take was...

    The historical problem with this is of course that IEs had never one centralized government. But acted as independent clans most of the time. With some cooperation of course now and then.

    Agree on this. Usually it would not work like this.
    Probably there were quite a lot more now dead IE languages in Europe like Temematic, etc.

    As to Balto-Slavic in particular, idea of it to...

    Actually found something else. Might have been wrong on post above.
    Anyway this is also an interesting article:

    This is a good list. Satemization in Baltic and Slavic acts weird.
    There is an interesting article by Kourtlandt where he explains differences by different IE substrate languages that Baltic and...

    What is totally different about
    - el(is) and - elj? :)

    Suffix -elis is normal for Latvian.
    Ziemelis - winter wind. Ziema - winter.
  22. If you say there was one proto-language that...

    If you say there was one proto-language that unites Baltic and Slavic, then it becomes fruitless to argue whether it should be called Baltic, Slavic or Balto-Slavic.
    Both modern Baltic and modern...

    I still have a certain feeling that N1c in Baltics arrived just before 0AD. Perhaps related or coincided to downfall of Kivutkalns (R1a - Baltic clades) bronze working center. That is also about when...

    There was an article I read that they still did those things in Livonia XV or XVI century. Werewolf trials had some materials and witnesses for rites possibly similar to initiation of young men. They...

    You send your surplus young men to conquer (raid, etc).
    "Normal" strategy for bronze age. May be hard to feed them otherwise. population size control... Make them someone else's problem.
