The unwelcome revival of ‘ race science ’ ... ..https: //www.theguardian.com/news/2018 ... ======= “ What genes are and what they tell us about people are very closely related, but not, in almost all cases, definitive.
That this is a fallacy is universally known among geneticists, yet it is still an idea that carries a lot of cultural significance, fueled frequently by the media and an ultra-simplistic understanding of the absurd complexities of human biology ... ... ... ... When we look to the past and to our presumed genetic ancestry to understand and explain our own behaviors today, it is not much better than astrology.
Unless you carry a particular disease that has passed down the family tree, the unending shuffling of genes, the dilution through generations, and the highly variably and immensely complex influence that genes have over your actual behavior mean that your ancestors have little sway over you at all. " ===================== " There are no essential genetic elements for any particular group of people who might be identified as a “ race. ” As far as biotechnolog is concerned, race does not exist. " ==================== " With our current nowledge of the biology of of Native Americans, there is no ossibility of DNA being anywhere near a useful tool in ascribing tribal status to people.
Furthermore, given our understanding of ancestry and family trees I have profound doubts that DNA could ever be used to determine tribal membership ... ..Over centuries, people are too mobile to have remained genetically isolated for any significant length of time.
Genealogy companies will sell you kits that claim to grant you membership to historical peoples, albeit ill-defined, is highly romanticized.
It 's a sense of of genetic astrology.That hasn ’ t stopped the emergence of some companies in the United States that sell kits that claim to use DNA to ascribe tribal membership.
These outfits state: “ All tests can be done for legal purposes ” and “ The results of this scientific test can be used to receive a status card or tribal enrollment. ” The author goes on to express full sympathy to Native Americans and their traditio and religion.
He just wants to debunk profiteers who claim to provide what is scientifically impossible at this time.Meanwhile, the author debunks several " genetic services " such as Accu-Metrics and DNA Consultants above, as well as BritainsDNA.
These kin included Charles the Younger, Pippin the Hunchback, Drogo of Metz, Hruodrud, Ruodhaid, Adalheid, Hludowic, and not forgetting Hugh " " Christopher Lee— the great actor who among his roles counts Dracula; Tolkien ’ s Saruman the White; the an with the Golden Gun himself, Scaramanga; the fallen Jedi Count Dooku; and The Wicker Man ’ s Lord Summerisle— claimed direct ancestry to King Charlemagne via the ancient house of his aunt, Countess Estelle Marie ( née Carandini di Sarzano) ... .but I can say with absolute confidence that if you ’ re vaguely of European extraction you are also descended from Charlemagne. " I have a very detailed genealogy on my mother 's side, going back to the arrival to America of our ncestor in 1636.
Basically, everyone alive in the 7th century who left descendants is the descendant of every living European today, including Charlemagne, Drogo, Pippin and Hugh. " If this seems unlikely or confusing, of course you will have to read the books to get more details.
For them, the scale on which the Nazis were carrying out their mass sterilization was what they had wanted for America.Of course, the fullest horrors would come with the Nazi Holocaust, which not only included Jews in their illions, but also homosexual men, Roma, Poles, and people with mental illness. -- -- The author discusses the futile search for a " criminal gene, " supposedly a defective MAOA gene.
But the report includes the possibility that she ’ s just 1/1024th Native American if the ancestor is 10 generations back. " Not satisfied with this, in a video that Warren released along with the nalysis, she described how her mother had discussed their Native American origin.
Family lore held that there were Cherokee and Delaware indigenous ancestors.The Cherokee Nation condemned Warren ’ s stud in a statement Monday. “ Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is nappropriate and wrong ” As explained above, there is no DNA test to demonstrate direct tribal heritage, Cherokee or otherwise.==========Interesting new development,.
