    Default Nat Geo - Out of India, after Africa?

    "Modern humans migrated out of Africa via a southern route through Arabia, rather than a northern route by way of Egypt, according to research announced at a conference at the National Geographic Society this week.



    “Ninety-nine percent of the human genome goes through this shuffling process as DNA is being transmitted from one generation to the next. These genomic regions have been largely unexplored to understand the history of human migration.

    “By looking at similarities in patterns of DNA recombination that have been passed on and in disparate populations, Genographic scientists confirm that African populations are the most diverse on Earth, and that the diversity of lineages outside of Africa is a subset of that found on the continent.

    “The divergence of a common genetic history between populations showed that Eurasian groups were more similar to populations from southern India, than they were to those in Africa.”

    “The divergence of a common genetic history between populations showed that Eurasian groups were more similar to populations from southern India, than they were to those in Africa. This supports a southern route of migration from Africa via the Bab-el-Mandeb Strait in Arabia before any movement heading north, and suggests a special role for south Asia in the ‘out of Africa’ expansion of modern humans.”


    Evolutionary history shows that human populations likely originated in Africa, and the Genographic Project, the most extensive survey of human population genetic data to date, suggests where they went next…Modern humans migrated out of Africa via a southern route through Arabia, rather than a northern route by way of Egypt,” said a news statement released by IBM."

    It looks like that map has Nadar India as a major source of dispersal. Swap an arrow or two around and Out of Africa looks more like Out of SE Asia.

    and that the diversity of lineages outside of Africa is a subset of that found on the continent.
    We know that statement to be totally false now that Neanderthal and Denisovian DNA have been found in non-SSAfricans. We didn't even suspect it until we were able to extract the DNA from ancient ancestors. That proves the earlier assumption had no scientific basis as it should have been able to predict the admixture before the proof was found.

    LOL! It's the truth even though you deny deny deny. Plus Black Africans have more archaic genetic code

    Which also could be explained by modern humans entering Africa and interbreeding with archaic humans. Fossils with Negroid features seem fairly recent, the oldest around 10K YBP. Much older fossils have been discovered with Mongoloid or Caucasian racial features.

    This further confirms the Albinism theory I root for regarding whitish people.

    Africans have the oldest genome. End of story.

    Yes and therefore they are less evolved.
