Arabo-Persian Gulf Basin possible homeland of Basal Eurasians?

Yeah, I thought I was the only one noticing an almost political, racism/oppression, Eurocentrism narrative, some of them were trying to not so lightly peddle. Some of these posters seem to be insinuating that when both academics and amateurs, refer to Basal Eurasians as “Basal Eurasians” lol, it represents some form of Western chauvinism, which is pure nonsense. Basal Eurasians are simply a hypothetical population; they were devised to explain a specific basal genetic affinity both modern and ancient West Eurasians have, relative to all other Eurasians. It’s not a purely geographic term, because such terminology is quite vague, and provides us nothing elucidating, genetically speaking. Are Neandersovans “African” now? What about all Eurasians? No one there is really calling them out on this ideological sewage, for fear of being banned it seems. These people really should be put under greater scrutiny by the moderators over there, this is just a form of idealogical coping, and semantics. No different than Nordicism and Mediterraneanism.



Only people with an agenda can create a drama about the term "Basal Eurasians". "Basal" is a term in biology for 'primitive' or 'ancestral'. Basal is preferred because it is neutral and non-judgmental. This terminology came into use with cladistics. The term is used in evolution and classification to mean the group which gave rise to later forms. Hence, Ancestral Eurasians imply that Basal Eurasians don‘t need to be Eurasians proper.



 
I think rather than there being 2 very distinct populations, one having 2% Neanderthal (Crown Eurasian) and the other having none (Basal Eurasian), Paleolithic Middle East likely harbored many groups with varying levels of Neanderthal admixture -- the ones that left early had higher % of Neanderthal DNA than the ones that had better success in populating Middle East later. So basically a true Basal Eurasian population never existed.
 
the one with most Basal Eurasian is Dzudzuana
Tarofalt has 45 % ANA

So if Dzudzuana man is living 45% Basal Eurasian; and living in Georgia 🇬🇪, how much Basal Eurasian do you suppose the Caucasus Hunter Gatherer culture ended up with?
Or was there a population vacuum and CHG dominated the Caucasus?
The prehistory of the Middle-east has so many surprises. :)

Not just the middle east, David Reich and David Anthony think CHG also went to the steppe. Not the other way around.
