    Lebrok, andI have sometimes impression, that these, who claim that understand, in some cases dont uderstand at all,
    or in these cases which dont fit to the theory they are trying to explain some things by not quite logical ways aspecially
    mostly denying their own theory by truing to defance her... because belive in untouchable natural selection is pretty

    Our European ancestors brought farming,
    languages and a love of dairy, study shows.


    Thousands of Bronze Age migrants from the Caucuses came to northern
    Europe in a major movement of prehistoric people in the 3 millennium BC
    .

    The making of modern Europe began in earnest about 5,000 years ago when a mass migration of people from what is now southern Russia and Georgia introduced new technology, languages and dairy farming to the continent, a study has found. Thousands of Bronze Age migrants from the Caucuses came to northern Europe in a major movement of prehistoric people in the third millennium BC, according to the largest research project of its kind that analysed the genetic makeup of more than 100 ancient skeletons from the period. The migrants brought new metal skills, spoke what became the basis of almost every other European language – from Greek and Latin to German and English – and carried a genetic mutation that allowed adults to drink cow’s milk.

    This lactose-tolerance gene, which enables adults to digest the sugar in milk, is still more prevalent in north Europeans today than in most other regions of the world. This illustrates the historic importance of dairy food in the North European diet, the scientists said. The mass migration was one of the most significant in European history, equivalent to the colonisation of the Americas, and was a transformative period in terms of the change in languages and culture that it brought about, the researchers believe. “The single most important finding from our study is that the Bronze Age, which is relatively recent, is when the major genetic landscape affecting modern-day Europeans was formed. It’s a surprise as it happened so recently,” said Eske Willerslev, professor of evolutionary genetics at the University of Copenhagen. “Our study is the first, real large-scale population genomic study ever undertaken on ancient individuals. We analysed genome sequence data from 101 past individuals. This is more than a doubling of the number of genomic sequenced individuals of prehistoric man generated to date,” Professor Willerslev said. “The results show that the genetic composition and distribution of peoples in Europe and Asia today is a surprisingly late phenomenon, only a few thousand years old,” he said. The genomic analysis, published in the journal Nature, indicates that the Yamnaya people who lived in the Caucuses about 5,000 years ago were responsible for spreading not just their innovative cultural ideas and languages, but their DNA across a vast area extending from the Urals to Scandinavia. They effectively replaced the older Neolithic farmers and hunter-gatherers who had occupied the northern Europe for thousands of years previously, presumably aided by the Yamnaya’s ability to smelt bronze and copper and herd cattle, Professor Willerslev said. “They brought with them new technology, new family structures, new religion and new ways of burying their dead. They also brought the start of cities. They were a high-tech culture,” he said.

    The Yamnaya also probably introduced genes for brown eyes, pale skin and tall stature to northern Europeans in the third millennium BC, which at that time was inhabited by dark skinned, blue-eyed, short people, he said. Crucially, they also brought the lactose-tolerance mutation that would allow adults to drink cow’s milk, a useful genetic attribute for healthy nutrition. “Previously, the common belief was that lactose tolerance developed in the Balkans or in the Middle East in connection with the introduction of farming during the Stone Age,” said Martin Sikora of the Natural History Museum in Copenhagen, a co-author of the study. “But now we can see that even late in the Bronze Age the mutation that gives rise to the tolerance is rare in Europe. We think that it may have been introduced into Europe with the Yamnaya herders from the Caucasus but that the selection that has made most Europeans lactose tolerant has happened at a much later time,” Dr Sikora said. Professor Kristian Kristiansen, an archaeologist at the University of Gothenburg, said the study resolves some of the questions about whether this period in prehistory was dominated by the movement of ideas or the migration and settlement of people en masse. “The old Neolithic farming cultures were replaced by a completely new perception of family, property and personhood. I and other archaeologists share the opinion that these changes came about as a result of massive migrations,” Professor Kristiansen said. The study, led by Morten Allentoft of the Natural History Museum in Copenhagen, also found that the Yamnaya people migrated east to occupy parts of Central Asia. They were eventually replaced by eastern Asians about 2,000 years ago.

    I see here minimum one problem in that. If yamna-people brought into Northern
    Europe brown eyes, where originally were only blue, then, how it happend, that
    another Indoeuropeans - as was for example said in the end of the article - who
    migrated in totally diffrenet parts of Eurasia, had blue eyes, for exaple in Central
    Asia, India, Mesopotamia and even in present day China and Mongolia??? It does
    not make any sens, especially that usually blue eyes are combined with pale skin
    and dark skin is combined with brown eyes, with exeptions of course.

    Modern day example from Iran, Muhammad Ali Ramin, Irans minister:




    So, when did the pre-indoeuropean blue-eyed "scandinavians"
    invade iranian plateau, ancient Egypt or lands as far as Gansu?

    Second, they wrote:

    They brought with them new technology, new family
    structures, new religion
    and new ways of burying
    their dead.
    They also brought the start of cities. They
    were a hightech culture” he said. (...)
    The old Neolithic
    farming cultures were replaced by a completly new
    perception of family, property and personhood.


    But they didn't mention any specifics. So, my question is: what were this new customs,
    ideas, perceptions and belives and what was the old ones? Somebody maybe knows?

    For a summary of the flow of culture and technology from south of the Caucasus north onto the steppe and thus an explanation of part of the genesis of the Yamnaya "Indo-European" complex please see the Supplementary Info section of Allentoft et al 2015, page 2.
    http://www.nature.com/nature/journal...re14507-s1.pdf

    Cattle were domesticated in the Near East and first went to Europe with the Neolithic farmers.
    Please see David Anthony's "The Horse, The Wheel and Language". If you don't have access to it, just go to Google Books, and sample it for particular topics. Here is where he discusses the fact that domesticated cattle were present in earliest Neolithic Thessaly from 5500 BC.
    https://books.google.com/books?id=rO...Europe&f=false

    In fact, you can use the google books version to see how farming, cattle and sheep domestication, and some developmnents in metallurgy moved from the southeastern European Neolithic cultures into Yamnaya. There's then the separate movement of culture and technology from south of the Caucasus to north of the Caucausus mentioned above.

    As to pigmentation, if memory serves you were already directed to all the relevant papers so I won't bother to list them all again. Perhaps you haven't had time to read them yet.

    Numerous scientists have examined the genomes of the WHG. They were homozygous for the snps which lead to blue eyes, but did not possess any of the modern European snps for pale skin. There is, I suppose, a possibility that they possessed some other snps which depigmented them of which we're not aware, but it is hardly a parsimonious theory; why so much selection for the modern versions if they were already depigmented? However, if you wish to cling to that hope, for whatever reason, that's your prerogative. As for me, when a scientist finds these missing genes I will, of course, change my mind on the matter. Until then, the science is what it is, and light pigmentation is the result of, in evolutionary terms, relatively recent selection.

    Please see post #26.
    Their technology, including their burial practices, were borrowed from other cultures. They did spread them around, however, and later made some improvements of their own.

    If you wish to review evolutionary theory, in particular natural selection, there are, I'm sure, some simplified texts on line.

    Well, I feel helpful today...see:

    Others say that light skin and blue eyes and L/P are from the middle/near east farmer types. We need more genomes. However one thing is clear; the Haak et al 2015 &
    Allentoft et al 2015 have basically come to the same conclusion using different data sets, clearly pointing to the ancient region in the pictures below, and coinciding with your diagram.

    I don't know what you're getting at...Mal'ta was not red haired. One minor allele supposedly found by Genetiker does not a red haired person make...Do we really have to go over all of this again? Pigmentation is a polygenic trait. Please google pigmentation on this site for relevant threads. They will direct you to the relevant papers.

    Well, the problem that blue eyes have no advantage and is extremely recessive (see my link with the USA); and we know the WHG were a really weak numbers and have been replaced by Yamna/indo-Europeans peoples (and before that by farmers); I don't see how natural selection could work in this context.

    @Rethel

    for the new traditions, according Marita Gimbutas, Dumezil etc.., the Indo-Europeans were patriarcal, more warriors-like, and have brought all these news religions/mythology well known today like Norse Gods, Celtic, Greeks etc...; apparently the olds gods of the farmers were more matriarcal:


    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Old_Eu...archaeology%29

    Marija Gimbutas investigated the Neolithic period in order to understand cultural developments in settled village culture in the southern Balkans, which she characterized as peaceful, matrilineal, and possessing a goddess-centered religion. In contrast, she characterizes the later Indo-European influences as warlike, nomadic, and patrilineal. Using evidence from pottery and sculpture, and combining the tools of archaeology, comparative mythology, linguistics, and, most controversially, folkloristics, Gimbutas invented a new interdisciplinary field, archaeomythology."

    The only sense of life is making next generation. Once you understand it and embrace natural selection all nature will become transparent and will make sense. Otherwise you will be stuck in old ways, lost and confused and counting on miracles to explain how it works.
    I know what I'm saying. 20 years ago I was exactly like you, trying to unify my christian beliefs with laws of nature and human nature. It didn't work. Now I understand, all make sense, and I'm at peace.

    The "loosing sens of life", "losing morality" is religious propaganda. To keep you away from free thinking, from taking all possibilities under consideration. Remember, every time you consider a possibility that God doesn't exist, you are sinning. You don't want that, do you?
    Be wary of people who tend to glorify the past, underestimate the present, and demonize the future.

You are simply guessing.
    There's a marker in DNA that can determine whether someone has light or dark eye color with something like 99% accuracy. Blue eyed people from the Middle East have the same marker as blue eyed people in Europe. We have these ancient people's DNA, so we have a good idea what eye color they had.

    Please explain without invoking natural selection how blue eyes could start at all. I suppose, you believe that, Homo Sapiens came from Africa they had only black eyes to start with. How is it possible that first blue eyes happened and made itself dominant in black eyes population?

    Lol that sound like a preach for "natural selection", like a religious speech.

    More seriously, I don't think Rethel is 100% against the theory of the natural selection, he is against the way that have been used like a magical explanation, blue eyes is a recessive traits, that have been proved, and everybody can see that...so that seem illogical, and I'm 100% agree with him, that a tiny population like WHG have given to have a majority, and far more advanced groups, a recessive traits; and that this population were dark skinned with blue eyes (?); there are too much no sense; for him the indo-europeans have without any doubt light eyes too (and there are plenty examples of proto-indo-europeans with light eyes hairs and eyes, sometimes older than Yamna, see my previous examples).

    I don't have to explain something, I'm not a scientific, but I know when something have no sense; if you are not agree, please explain me how today, in USA, among Whites peoples, despites that they have the populations with more powers, blue eyes simply disappear and how a tiny minority like WHG should have been abble to give to a vast majority an extremely recessive traits...there are something wrong somewhere.

    And so explain me how natural selection could work about blue eyes, when it's well known that blue eyes don't give any advantage in the nature.

    For peoples "come from Africa", lot of scientifics don't necessary agree with this theory, so no I don't specially believe that humans or homo-sapiens (whatever you call them) come from Africa.

    No, not 99%, there are too much problem also with modern peoples to be sure for ancients WHG; for example, for what I have read, the karitiana, an ameridians groups have the genes for blue eyes, but have dark brown eyes..so I guess other factors could play a role.

    The only sense of life is making next generation.

    No, I was talking abut something else.

    For evolutionists their concepts are so important, because they loved to belived in them.
    This is their sens of life, because every man have sens in that what he likes, belives and
    apreciate. It dosent matter if this is evolution belives, christian faith, political convictions
    or even collecting the poststamps. Especially if some one is focused on that or combined
    with that some images about his existance or worldview. You can call it religion or not. It
    doesn't matter. Some people can die for their football-club... because this is their religion.

    Once you understand it and embrace natural selection all nature will become transparent and will make sense. Otherwise you will be stuck in old ways, lost and confused and counting on miracles to explain how it works.
    I have no such problems. Only curiosity.

    I know what I'm saying. 20 years ago I was exactly like you, trying to unify my christian beliefs with laws of nature and human nature. It didn't work. Now I understand, all make sense, and I'm at peace.
    Maybe you are in peace, but your trying was probably from wrong point of view.
    A knew many people who were trying - some of them became irrational biggots,
    totaly blind for everything, some of them became in the best case deisitic, and of
    course totaly blind for everything but not their own imagination, and some of them
    became ateists like you, whose discover their new idols called natural selection,
    evolution, atheism, Dawkins, aso - and they are probably most blindly from all
    this groups, they are more biggot than biggots, because they are knowing true
    about everything and are always right, and of course they are not so stupid, as
    this christian people... they are the most inteligent people of all times!
    In their own eyes of course, because Dawkins said so...

    The "loosing sens of life", "losing morality" is religious propaganda.
    Atheists probably dont have any sense of life, so they cannot loose it?
    No! They have, like religious people, and they put thier sens in some
    things in the same way as religious people do. And by the same way
    they can be sectarian in their mind, or can be free. But ateist is never
    totaly free minded, because he is already in prison called: "God does
    not exist". Beliving person can uderstand everything, even evolution,
    but atheist cannot understand everything, for example creation. Why?
    Because in his mind it is impossible, because creation cannot be done
    without Creator! So if Creator exists and create the Universe, atheist
    never get it, because he allready know, that this is impossible. But in
    the case of beliving person, everything is possible with God, even this
    so laudly called Evolution. She could be made with Creator, this is no
    problem at all. Only atheists are limited, not beliving people. Postulated
    by atheists open minded is not true. They are closed for creation and
    for existing of god or supernatural powers by principle. Theists are not.
    So, who is more close minded?

    To keep you away from free thinking, from taking all possibilities under consideration. Remember, every time you consider a possibility that God doesn't exist, you are sinning. You don't want that, do you?
    I already demonstrated you, who is really free thinking.
    You are not, because you already know that God doesnt
    exists at all, and that evolution is a fact. Congratulations.

    LeBrok, I was trying to explain you that thing for a long thead, and you still don't get it?

    No, because you allready know that:
    1) It can be done only by natural selection
    2) It can be done only in one way by natural selection.

    You simply don't want find another explenations either for
    natural selecton neither for some kind or way of that process.

    Why? Because you already belive in one only true subdogma of the one only true dogma.

    So, how can you be open minded and free thinking?

    There is no evil man saying "I'm going to prevent free thinking". That's such a myth. To call it propaganda is ridiculous, insulting, and wrongly making innocent people look like manipulative bad guys. No one is trying to prevent free thinking. It clearly shows you're aggressive attitude towards in this subject. Those are attack words. People simply believe in something and dis agree with other things.

    There's nothing wrong about believing in something that doesn't have 100% prove. Nothing really can be proven as a fact. Like what Jesus said "thou hast seen me, thou hast believed; blessed are those that have not seen and yet have believed." There's nothing wrong with faith, and some people have lost that value. Life is more complicated than a test tube or what we can see and understand.

    That's all.
    Logic and deduction is what scientists use, the scientists who study evolution, and natural selection as part of that evolution, and who have studied how pigmentation works, in fish, in mammals and in humans. In the same way, archaeology tells us about the flow of culture into and out of different areas, and genetics show us about how ancient populations admixed in different proportions to create modern groups. You can embrace that, or you can rely on myths and ideology. I'm sure if you think about it, you'll prefer to be part of the former rather than the latter.

    @FireHaired.
    Science and religion are not, in my opinion, necessarily antithetical. Believe me, it's quite possible to be a regular church goer and a believer in science and evolution at the same time.

    I don't know your religious persuasion, but every Roman Catholic theologian who ever instructed me would tell you that the Bible is a book of religion, not science. Even the Pope believes in evolution! :)

    The same in 20-some american countres, in north and central Africa, in Turkey, Armenia,

    Everywhere recessive genes were vanished, but in Scandinavia was a miracle!

    How do you know some Karitiana don't have blue eyes? It makes sense because of their ANE ancestry, and ANE is closely related to WHG.

    ANE is closely related to indo-europeans too and Yamna were supposed to be half WHG...for Karitiana, how I know they don't have blue eyes ? Very simple, with the pictures:

    https://www.google.fr/search?q=karit...w=1600&bih=789

    You can find also the pictures of the Karitiana who have been tested, all brown dark eyes.

    dark skin and blue eyes don't work together, it's the other big problem with the WHG theory.

    A small minority probably have blue(or another type of light) eyes. You can't expect to find them in those pictures. There's actually an entire haplotype with over 10 markers, that 97% of blue eyed people have(In Middle East and EUrope), and WHGs have it. So, not just 1 marker.

    Yes, and that the case with these peoples but they don't have blue eyes, you can find some discussion about that in various forums, and you know they are not a very large group, they are a tiny tribe (320 peoples !!!), if one of them would have blue eyes, that would have been well known.
