DNA Evidence Suggests Captured Russian Ape Woman Might Have been Subspecies of Modern Human

The story of Zana, supposed Ape Woman of the Caucasus Mountains is one often revisited and reexamined by historians, explorers, and scientists alike. Now a leading geneticist believes that the wild woman who lived in 19th century Russia may have belonged to a subspecies of modern humans. Zana was named by Russian researchers after her discovery and capture in the Ochamchir region of Abkhazia, south of Russia in the 1850’s. She was said to have been living in the wilderness, naked, but covered in a thick auburn fur, and appearing…

Before European Christians Forced Gender Roles, Native Americans Acknowledged These 5 Genders

A gender role is a set of societal norms dictating the types of behaviors which are generally considered acceptable, appropriate, or desirable for people based on their actual or perceived sex or sexuality. But it wasn’t until Europeans took over North America that natives adopted the ideas of gender roles. For Native Americans, there was no such a thing as specific rules that men and women had to follow in order to be considered a “normal” member of their tribe. People who had both male and female characteristics were viewed as gifted by nature because they…

Indigenous Puerto Rico: DNA evidence upsets established history

History is written by the conquerors. The Native peoples of North America know this all too well, as they are still trying to bring the truth to light. Now, their long-lost Caribbean cousins are beginning the same process. It’s an uphill battle. Most Puerto Ricans know, or think they know, their ethnic and racial history: a blending of Taino (Indian), Spanish and African. Students of the islands’ past have read the same account for over 300 years; that the Native people, and their societies, were killed off by the Spanish…

“Great Surprise”—Native Americans Have West Eurasian Origins

Nearly one-third of Native American genes come from westEurasian people linked to the Middle East and Europe, rather than entirely from East Asians as previously thought, according to a newly sequenced genome.  Based on the arm bone of a 24,000-year-old Siberian youth, the research could uncover new origins for America’s indigenous peoples, as well as stir up fresh debate on Native American identities, experts say. The study authors believe the new study could also help resolve some long-standing puzzles on the peopling of the New World, which include genetic oddities…

DNA Results For The Nephilim Skulls In Peru Are In And The Results Are Absolutely Shocking

How can we explain elongated skulls that are thousands of years old that contain genetic material “unknown in any human, primate or animal known so far”?  For months, many of us have been eagerly awaiting the results of the first DNA tests to ever be performed on the famous Paracas skulls.  The results for one of the skulls are now in, and the scientist that did the testing is declaring that this skull represents a “new human-like creature” unlike anything that has ever been discovered before.  So are these actually…

DNA Shocker: Body Of Homeless Man Found In Restaurant Was Confirmed To Be Bob Marley

Recently, people have found a body of an elderly homeless man in a cardboard box behind a fast food restaurant in downtown Kingston in Jamaica. The man didn’t have any identification, which made it difficult for the police to identify him. He only had an old guitar with him as well as a tin can with a small quantity of marijuana and a faded photograph of the Houses of Parliament in London. Being unable to identify the man, the authorities had no other option but contact the Jamaica`s National DNA…

DNA scientists claim that Cherokees are from the Middle East

“The Cherokees have lived in the Southeastern United States for over 10,000 years.Cherokees developedand cultivated corn, beans and squash – “the three sisters” – along with sunflowers and other crops. Archaeological evidence, early written accounts, and the oral history ofthe Cherokees themselves show the Cherokees as a mighty nation controlling more than 140,000 square miles with a population of thirty-six thousand or more. Often the townhouse stood on an earthen mound, which grew with successive ceremonial re-buildings.” In his famous book, “The History of the America Indians” eighteenth century explorer…

DNA: Is it the hard drive of the future?

Data storage technologies are having a hard time keeping up, as data in the world is doubling every two years, according to a 2014 estimate by EMC. As a result, researchers are looking at various methods to store data as a possible storage medium. Recently, researchers Yaniv Erlich and Dina Zielinski of the Data Science Institute at Columbia University and the New York Genome Center (NYGC) unveiled a new technique that allows DNA to store more data than ever before. In nature, DNA works by storing information about different forms…

DNA discovery unearths ‘unknown chapter in human history’ in Europe 15,000 years ago

A major and unexplained population shift occurred in Europe around 15,000 years ago when local hunter-gatherers were almost completely replaced by a group from another area, scientists researching our ancestors’ genetics have discovered. The findings were made after the extensive study of DNA evidence obtained from the bones and teeth of ancient people who lived in Europe during from the Late Pleistocene to the early Holocene, a period of roughly 30,000 years. While attempting to find more genetic data from this time period, researchers from the Max Planck Institute for the Science…

Blood of the Irish: What DNA Tells Us About the Ancestry of People in Ireland

The blood in Irish veins is Celtic, right? Well, not exactly. Although the history that used to be taught at school said the Irish were simply a Celtic people, related to the central European Celts, the truth is much more complicated, and much more interesting than that. Research done into the DNA of the Irish has shown that our old understanding of where the population of Ireland originated may have been misguided. Although the modern Irish have been shown to share many genetic similarities with Scottish and Welsh populations, and…
