    Genetic study The Persian plateau served as hub for Homo sapiens after the main out of Africa dispersal

    Skhūl V's skull is estimated to be between 120,000 and 80,000 years old. The initial time frame of the Hub study is between ~70–60 to 45 kya, so there is a significant temporal difference. Also there is doubt as to whether the Skhūl hominids are partially of Neanderthal descent or whether they...

    Genetic study The Persian plateau served as hub for Homo sapiens after the main out of Africa dispersal

    The people inhabiting the hub were homo sapiens sapiens, they were anatomically modern. They were not the archaic humans pictured on the article that you indicate.

    Climate change Snowballing effect of global warming might cause the end of civilisation as we know it as early as 2030

    There are no signs of a slowdown in greenhouse gas emissions in 2023. According to data from NOAA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration from the USA, greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide CO2, methane and nitrous oxide) continued to climb in 2023. For example, human-caused CO2...

    How did the Normans do it?

    Although there must have been several causes for this conquest, military, political, social and others, we can ask ourselves what the role of faith and religion may have been? This was a deeply religious society. In the Anglo-Saxon wars against the Vikings, centuries before, there was also a...

    Genetic study Hunter-gatherer genetic persistence at the onset of megalithism in Western Iberia

    Even though the circumstances of this persistence and dominance of local hunter-gatherer paternal lineages over those of farmers are unknown, the most plausible hypothesis is that hunter-gatherers violently took control of existing agricultural societies and that this event occurred...

    Genetic study The Persian plateau served as hub for Homo sapiens after the main out of Africa dispersal

    Abstract A combination of evidence, based on genetic, fossil and archaeological findings, indicates that Homo sapiens spread out of Africa between ~70-60 thousand years ago (kya). However, it appears that once outside of Africa, human populations did not expand across all of Eurasia until...

    Genetic study Hunter-gatherer genetic persistence at the onset of megalithism in Western Iberia

    Abstract Despite its strategic importance at the furthermost edge of the Neolithic expansion in Europe, archaeogenetic data from Mesolithic and Neolithic human remains from Portugal are still very limited. Here we present ancient mtDNA evidence (mostly unpublished) to fill the gap and discuss...

    Genetic study Archaeogenetic analysis revealed East Eurasian paternal origin to the Aba royal family of Hungary

    From the study "The Aba lineage, along with a modern Croatian male, was assigned to N-A9416. The sub-Hg of N-A9416 is also present in a Hungarian, a Chuvash, and a Bulgarian individual." It appears that one of the carriers of a sub-Hg of N-A9416 is (or was) one of the members of this forum ...

    Genetic study Archaeogenetic analysis revealed East Eurasian paternal origin to the Aba royal family of Hungary

    Abstract The Aba family played a pivotal role in the early history of Medieval Hungary dominating extensive territories and giving rise to influential figures. We conducted an archaeogenetic examination of remains uncovered at the necropolis in Abasar, the political centre of the Aba clan, to...

    Large-Scale Assessment of the Iranian population structure of Mitochondrial and Y-chromosome Haplogroups

    Abstract The Iranian plateau, strategically positioned as a corridor for population diffusion across Eurasia, holds a pivotal role in elucidating the dynamics of human migrations originating from Africa around 60,000 years ago. Both prehistoric and historic movements of populations between...

    Religion Why are there still Christians?

    There are still Christians and always will be because Christianity is rooted in deep human needs. Christianity has always adapted to respond to that needs. One of the least known aspects about the origin of Christianity is that it resulted from a fusion between Judaism and Polytheism. Contrary...

    Literature The Western Canon

    Bloom is clearly biased towards English literature, I agree that it's a big flaw in his work. Despite not including them in the list of 26 writers, Homer and Virgil are frequently mentioned in the book. For example: In chapter 1 “I believe there are only a few works that appear to be more...
