Scientists have found that memories may be passed down through generations in our DNA

New research from Emory University School of Medicine, in Atlanta, has shown that it is possible for some information to be inherited biologically through chemical changes that occur in DNA. During the tests they learned that that mice can pass on learned information about traumatic or stressful experiences – in this case a fear of the smell of cherry blossom – to subsequent generations. According to the Telegraph, Dr Brian Dias, from the department of psychiatry at Emory University, said: ”From a translational perspective, our results allow us to appreciate how the experiences of a parent,…

Who were the Scythians, Sarmatians, Alans, Iazyges, Aorsi, Saka?

A brief history: The Scythians originated from the Pazyryk culture which existed in the Altay region. Their original homeland was in Central-Europe from where before the Celto-Pannonians they fled to Asia. First they migrated to the Volga-Kama region and from there to the Altay region. Genetics: Genetics confirm that the Scythians belonged to the Old-European R1a and N1a Haplogroups. They were tall, they had mostly blonde hair and green or blue eyes exactly as Ammianus Marcellinus described them. The best genetic proofs are found in an article called: “Ancient DNA…

Human intelligence is declining according to Stanford geneticist

Ever can’t help but think you’re surrounded by idiots? A leading scientist at Stanford University thinks he has the answer, and the bad news is things aren’t likely to get any better. Dr. Gerald Crabtree, a geneticist at Stanford, has published a study that he conducted to try and identify the progression of modern man’s intelligence. As it turns out, however, Dr. Crabtree’s research led him to believe that the collective mind of mankind has been on more or a less a downhill trajectory for quite some time. According to…

DNA uncovers mystery migration to the Americas

Two separate genetic analyses have found evidence for a surprising genetic link between the native populations of the Americas and Oceania. The DNA of some native Amazonians shows significant similarity to indigenous inhabitants of Australia and Melanesia. The two research groups, however, offer contrasting interpretations of how the Americas were first peopled. The studies have been published in the journals Science and Nature. There is agreement that the first people to populate the Americas came though Siberia – along a land bridge connecting it with Europe and Asia. But just…

Ancestry of first Americans revealed by a boy’s genome

WE MAY never know who the Anzick child was. Why he died, just 3 years old, in the foothills of the American Rockies; why he was buried, 12,600 years ago, beneath a huge cache of sharpened flints; or why his kin left him with a bone tool that had been passed down the generations for 150 years. One thing, however, is certain: his afterlife is anything but ordinary. This week, geneticists announced that the boy is the earliest ancient American to have his entire genome sequenced. Incredibly, he turns out…

DNA Analysis Shows That Native American Genealogy Is One of the Most Unique in the World

The suppression of the Native Americans and the decimation of their culture is a black page in the history of the United States. The discrimination and injustices towards this ancient race, which had lived on the American continent long before the European conquerors came to this land, are still present to this day despite the efforts of different groups and organizations trying to restore the justice. The destruction of their culture is one of the most shameful aspects of our history, the extent of the damage that was done is still being…
