    If the authors claim only ~56-62% of the modern Sardinian genetic makeup is explained by ancient Sardinian EEF up to the Iron Age, then I wonder why they are still overwhelmingly EEF (ANF+WHG) in...

    IMHO her Occitan sounds heavily influenced by Parisian French, so that's probably why her speech doesn't sound very "Catalan-like".
  3. I also quite like the idea of the Lares. It...

    I also quite like the idea of the Lares. It sounds more cozy, lol, I mean, a more personal and familial relationship with the spiritual world. But I wonder: did the ancient Romans see the Lares as...
  4. Continuing my tests with the aforementioned...

    Continuing my tests with the aforementioned English aDNA samples, I tried now modelling them on the basis of 4 simple reference samples: ANF (Barcin) + Steppe (Khvalyns-like and Progress-like) + WHG....
  5. These are all extremely general similarities...

    These are all extremely general similarities that, as I can see, include many other (non-IE) cultures, not just specific IE cultural markers, so I honestly don't think why the IE migration should be...
  6. That's what partly makes me deny the idea that...

    That's what partly makes me deny the idea that the bulk of the boom of steppe-related lineages was caused by mass rape of local women in Europe and parts of Asia. In many places the autosomal signal...
  7. Yes, you're remembering it right, and that's...

    Yes, you're remembering it right, and that's partly why I am intrigued. If England_IA, England_LBA or even England_RomanEra-like people were exactly the ones that mixed with the Anglo-Saxons (who...

    But the genetic drift in Iceland involved a higher population growth of those harboring more Scandinavian ancestry than those harboring more Gaelic ancestry, wasn't it? So it pressuposed a previous...
  9. A "southward" shift of English genetics between the LBA and the Modern Era???

    I have been running some tests and analysis using the G25 samples, and I have noticed a very intriguing thing as I plotted English averaged population samples on a North European PCA. See for...

    To be fair their religion doesn't grant access to women just because they aren't dressing modestly. The same instructions that tell women to dress modestly also tell men to low their gaze before...

    Oh, it was so distressing for me to contemplate these innocent faces and think of what happened to them and to millions of other similar people during WW2 and other wars... This world is indeed a...
  12. What I find implausible about Reich's South...

    What I find implausible about Reich's South Caucasus hypothesis is that PIE clearly spread and diverged at least as late as the Copper Age, but the South Caucasus and even, in fact, the North...
  13. I'm clearly talking about the fact that they all...

    I'm clearly talking about the fact that they all now speak Germanic languages that started to diverge about 2000 years ago, so it cannot have been a case of one particularly successful Germanic...

    See what I mean with the results of a model of genetic ancestry for several key ancient DNA samples, using 18-19 reference populations from all over Eurasia: https://imgur.com/a/TnFLTTy
  15. So what explains the remarkable linguistic...

    So what explains the remarkable linguistic homogeneity among all those diverse genetically differentiated populations speaking a Germanic tongue up until the Late Antiquity? Would they be a rare...
  16. I wonder if all the genetic labs that had been...

    I wonder if all the genetic labs that had been looking for steppe ancestry in the ancient DNA samples from all over Eurasia have "adapted" their genetic models and tried finding a kind of steppe...

    Indeed, the vocabulary of BP tends to be more conservative than the vocabulary of EP, especially in its formal, literary language.
  18. I actually think the phonology of Ligurian (what...

    I actually think the phonology of Ligurian (what little snippet of it that I have heard, let me clarify) resembles that of Catalan and perhaps a bit less so that of European Portuguese, indeed.

    I...

    Indeed, one doesn't even have to imagine that much. The way colonists behaved in the remote lawless lands during the colonization of much of the Americas, away from any law, church and bureaucracy,...

    Perhaps because I have already got some basic Italian vocabulary from listening so much to operas, it's sometimes been far easier for me to understand spoken Standard Italian than spoken Spanish,...

    I'm not sure that's the case, though. We had a self-proclaimed leftist government for 13 years (2003-2016), often accused by the now ruling right-wing of being "communist" (total nonsense,...

    Preach, Duarte. I don't think most people out there are really aware of the kind of lunatic beliefs and paranoid and radical statements that we have been listening to here. It seems like they simply...

    I have been quite intrigued recently by the results I tested for the DNA samples from the Caspian part of northern Iran (Tepe Hissar) and, moving westward, from Armenia (Areni), both from the...

    I always found it bizarre how many people who purport to oppose racism, eurocentrism and white supremacy give so much stress to Europeans' and European-Americans' role in virtually every historical,...

    That must be a very country-specific issue, but my perception is that excessive and widespread political polarization, with people acting like overconfident zealots in their respective...
