I happened to see this (on FreeSpeechExtremist):
“Cro-Magnon is no real scientific term, it used to refer to the “physically modern human”, to which also Neanderthals belong, even though modern (((science))) wants to make them look primitive and more like Homo Erectus or somesuch, which isnt the case however.
Considering that most DNA is “neutral”, ie appears in the same form and sequences in all mammals (not just humanoids), the ~4% of clearly identifiable Neanderthal DNA in Europeans is an aweful lot. The changes are called evolution (and culturally driven breeding). I know people dont want to hear it, but we are indeed more Neanderthal than anything else.
The reconstruction image I posted earlier was done by a forensic physicist who usually does reconstructions for police investigations. So he knew what he was doing. “Modern” depictions of Neanderthals with giant eyebrow bulges and ape-like statue on the other hand are BS.
The Out of Africa Theory abuses Cro-Magnon (again: physically modern human, in contrast to Australopiticus etc, it’s only a set of traits, not a humanoid species) btw as some kind of mysterious “Ur-Human” who was likewise mysteriously highly mobile and bred with everything he could find apparently, to avoid the consideration of a multiregional development and the otherwise over-present occurance of “analogous evolution” (compare mammal predators to marsupial predators like the Tasmanian Devil, duck-like marsupials). For Human Evolution this possibility is completely denied under the OoA dictate. Because muh, we are all the same and race is only skin deep ‘n stuff. This image is the representation of the OoA theory, it’s not science, but it’s been declared the only valid theory by UN’s 1960s Race Question resolution and whoever publishes finds against it is fired, gets his career ended and his life ruined.”
“Reconstruction of a Neanderthal girl from before “political correctness”.
Fair skin is not a “recent” mutation but at least 150,000 years old, and probably no mutation at all, but an inherent feature of a seperate #species (not race) of humans altogether. Europeans, and to a lesser degree Asians, possess identifiable Neanderthal genes, while Africans do not.
The Anatolian farmer theory is also bullshit, because “farming” (ie the full dependence on farming) had a hard limit in south-eastern Europe ~6000 years ago, it did not spread further until ~Stonehenge era and even then it was an adoption, an addition to a half-nomadic cattle herding life-style, and did not come “with” the Anatolian farmer people.
Farming, btw, was not an improvement to the living conditions in the Fertile Belt, but quite a setback. They suffered from malnutrition, caries, overpopulation in the cramped, tiny settlements=all sorts of diseases and infections and undernutrition in general. We did well with adopting this only slowly and carefully with foresight and rather kept the cattle herding and dairy stuff instead.”
