They Wuz Dumb

Laughable.

Leave it up to the retarded “movement” to take a (initial, preliminary*) refutation of Arthur Kemp and twist it into “Arthur Kemp was right.”

From the paper (emphasis added):

…reveals that the three ancient Egyptians differ from modern Egyptians by a relatively larger Near Eastern genetic component, in particular a component found in Neolithic Levantine ancient…Finally, we used two methods to estimate the fractions of sub-Saharan African ancestry in ancient and modern Egyptians. Both qpAdm35 and the f4-ratio test39 reveal that modern Egyptians inherit 8% more ancestry from African ancestors than the three ancient Egyptians do, which is also consistent with the ADMIXTURE results discussed above. Absolute estimates of African ancestry using these two methods in the three ancient individuals range from 6 to 15%, and in the modern samples from 14 to 21% depending on method and choice of reference population…

Yeah…so Kemp was saying that Ancient Egyptians were akin to Near Easterners and with 6-15% Negro African ancestors?  That’s the “Nordic desert empire?”  

You do know that my criticisms of Der Movement and its blind adherence to fossilized dogma is correct, don’t you?  Even when presented with data right to their face that begins the refutation of their dogma, they’ll actually believe their dogma is supported.  Blind religious faith.  

Hail Kek!  We wuz morons!

*Given that Der Movement uses three autosomal samples to declare “Kemp was right” one is justified in using the same small sample size to say “no, he wasn’t.”  Obviously, more data are needed, but getting reasonably good nuclear data from these ancient samples is problematic (as the paper showed).

Rotten Orange and “Movement” News

The usual stupidity.

Trump the cuck, who has been “cucking on the Orient Express.”  Jared and Ivanka have their political affiliations revealed – certainly befitting the “royal family” of a “God Emperor,” no?

Meet Jeremy Christian.  The “movememt” will of course try to distance itself from Christian, despite the fact that he’s a fairly representative snapshot of the Nutzi faction that lurks on, and often participates in, “movement” blog comments threads.

But, but. But…I thought Ancient Egypt was, a la Arthur Kemp, a “Nordic desert empire?”  It’s the New Kingdom, after all, that was the peak of Ancient Egypt’s political and military power – their empire period.

Of course, given that only the nuclear DNA is of any use for racial affiliation, this is only three individuals. But still, it’s interesting that the available data so far refute both Afrocentrist and Nordicist interpretations of Ancient Egypt.
