Origins of Native Americans? Ancient Greece

92 posts in this topic

“The level of haplogroup T in the Cherokee (26.9 percent) approximates the percentage for Egypt (25 percent), one of the only lands where T attains a major position among the various mitochondrial lineages.”

Yates focused on haplotype X for “its relative absence in Mongolia and Siberia and a recently proven center of diffusion in Lebanon and Israel.”

The Mormons have been saying that the Indians are Israelites for almost 200 years now. Which may be why the scientists don't want to make that jump.

Last I checked my Cherokee relatives had shovel shaped incisors which is not found in the middle east. The Melungeon DNA has been analyzed and found to contain sub saharan african genes. Still, the Mormans must love this guy.

Science needs a bit more than the words of a womanizing charlatan.

Donald Panther-Yates earned a doctorate in classical studies with a concentration

in medieval literature from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His work in medieval history, Native American genetics and Judaica led him to establish DNA Consulting in 2002.

He wrote this 'interesting' book..

Sephardic Scotland: When Scotland Was Jewish.

Classic, try telling a Highland Scotsman he is Jewish,and see how far you get without serious injury,or sudden death.

Spud, I agree. I've read some absolute BS in my time, but this takes the cake.

Eh, in Conspiracy Central that's just denial and thus further evidence of the correctness of the theory...

(that was sarcasm, by the way)

This guy a has classic pseudo-intellectual wannabe mentality. Apparently his real ancestry isn't romantic enough, so through tortuous logic he has manufactured himself a better one. The classic Saxon name of Yates or Yeats has been been rationalized to be of sephardic origin, and not not only that, his cherokee ancestors are, too. I am so tired of people who can not accept the authenticity and originality of Native American cultures and try to ascribe them to Old World origins.

I have coined the term "envyolithic" to describe this phenomenon, though some here don't prefer it.

Not bad. He's definitely xenophilic.

Technically they do have old world origins... :whistle:

But I know what you mean. :)

Isn't this to do with European settlers in the Americas?

Excellent term

Now we need (and years ago I thought I found it but have lost it mpw) a word describing those who believe ancient myths and writings are word for word true and absolutely factual.

To restrictive as I noted above I did find such a word long ago, made up of Greek and Latin of course.

Mythillogicals.

Not bad but not quite Greeky and Latiny for my tastes.

The word gullible springs to mind.
