More refutation of “movement” ethnic fetishism.
And then this.
From the original paper (emphasis added):
Phenotype prediction from genetic data has enabled the reconstruction of the appearance of ancient Europeans who left no visual record of their pigmentation. By contrast, the appearance of the Bronze Age people of the Aegean has been preserved in colourful frescos and pottery, depicting people with mostly dark hair and eyes. We used the HIrisPlex tool (Supplementary Information section 4) to infer that the appearance of our ancient samples matched the visual representations (Extended Data Table 2), suggesting that art of this period reproduced phenotypes naturalistically.
We estimated the fixation index, FST, of Bronze Age populations with present-day West Eurasians, finding that Mycenaeans were least differentiated from populations from Greece, Cyprus, Albania, and Italy (Fig. 2), part of a general pattern in which Bronze Age populations broadly resembled present-day inhabitants from the same region (Extended Data Fig. 7).
No, no, a thousand times, no!
Seriously though, I believe we will find that (relative) genetic continuity is more the rule rather than the exception. The big changes in population composition are occurring today, and it’s probably more realistic to concentrate on preserving our genetic interests today than indulging in increasingly refuted “movement” ethnic fetishism.
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).
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.
