    I agree with that statement. PIE must have evolved from an earlier non-Indo-European language that belonged to an earlier language family. Even proto-Nostratic (if it existed) began with a...

    The interesting thing about Basque language and culture is that it's the exception that proves the rule. It seems to have an ability to withstand linguistic "steamrollers" that is unique, in Europe...

    I'm J1c3b2 and my maternal line ancestor seven generations back was born in central London around 1777. She had a typically English name and gave her children Anglican baptisms, suggesting that her...

    Maybe because Taipei (and Taiwan) is dominated by non-Austronesian speaking people of Han Chinese origin who probably aren't interested in assembling a pan-Austronesian insular confederacy. Even if...

    Until fossil evidence is found there, that is conjecture. It will remain an open question until Mars is studied more thoroughly.

    I couldn't agree more. However, the link to a porn site that you included in your post is possibly not relevant to this forum.

    Yes, unfortunately "blank slate-ism" is still alive and well in the social sciences. It's not just the new left, you could say it goes back to Lysenkoism in the Soviet Union that even tried to deny...

    Or do the best days of aDNA studies lie ahead? Even now, complete skulls are not necessary for aDNA analyses. The Denisovan genome was read from a single tooth. With future advances in technology and...

    There have been attempts to devise comparative tests of non-human animal intelligence, but there are no quantitative tests equivalent to human IQ tests that can give them an average score of 100 and...

    George Bernard Shaw may have anticipated this debate. A beautiful young society woman approached him at a party and said "George, with your intelligence and my looks, imagine the wonderful children...

    Yes but chocolate also contains caffeine, which might explain the expression "chocoholic". According to the caffeine levels listed by Maciamo in his first post above, 100g of dark chocolate could...

    I think the circumstantial evidence favours sub-Saharan Africa because that's where there is the most genetic diversity today, much more than the rest of the world combined, and where the most...

    This paper suggests that there was an unsuccessful attempt by Homo sapiens to spread into Eurasia over 200,000 years ago, then resurgent Neanderthals re-occupied the territory previously held by Homo...

    It's not surprising that there were multiple dispersals of early modern humans out of Africa. Hominins had demonstrated a tendency to explore, roam and disperse out of Africa for over two million...

    If there are genetic differences between the French and Italians that relate to alcohol, I wonder if they date back to the Bell Beaker period? I believe that the French have more steppe-like ancestry...

    I agree that recreational drug use is a high risk activity for adolescents and should be discouraged as much as possible. I'm glad in retrospect that I was 23 when I tried cannabis for the first...

    The findings of this research seem quite plausible to me. A genetic influence on drug use is only a tendency, so it's possible to find counter-examples. If there is a gene associated with drug...

    Banning Islam or any other religion would be counter-productive and a breach of human rights (freedom of association and the right to free speech). I think there is a case for withdrawing state...

    My score on the AQ test was 36 out of 50 (very high). This was as I expected, since I diagnosed myself as Aspergerish more than 20 years ago. I've never had a clinical assessment since I don't...

    I'm not sure that there is any necessary connection between large, dense population centres and violence, stress or ill-health. Take the world's largest ever megacity, Greater Tokyo, with a...

    So, it turns out that the origin of modern humans was in China, not Africa. I suppose academics in the PRC continue to pursue the multiregional model because limits on their academic freedom mean...

    Are they suggesting that there were Jomon people in Japan well before 50,000 years ago, but the population decreased from 50,000 years on? Other studies suggest that 50,000 years ago the ancestors of...
