    Things like “Jewish DNA is like Kurdish DNA” may also be  an indication that the Kurds are one of the ten lost tribes.

    Science has confirmed that the Lemba people of South Africa have genetic roots in present day Israel.  The Lemba oral tradition has always maintained this was the case, but it’s now indisputable.  

  3. The Mugwump

    The Afro-centered theory of human evolution is quite clearly wrong.  Central Asia (a band running from Turkestan through the Tigris and Euphrates Valley) is the most genetically diverse area of the planet.  The center always tends to be diverse and dynamic (as true for langues as it is for genetics).  Provincial areas tend to be conservative and settled.  Have a look at the R1b haplogroup.  It’s centered on the Basque area of Spain and southern France:  unique language, unique culture, and a genetic pattern that matches nothing in western Europe.  Why?  Because the Basques are a remnant.  Remnant people can only exist on the periphery.  The farther a people migrate from the center the more homogeneous they become.  Should be obvious, but that’s just me.  

  4. Israel P.

    There are people involved in tracking down the lost tribes today and they seem to making alot of progress.

    not really related, but it seems like there’s a problem with the SuperFeed on stitcher. It’s still showing last week’s flagship podcast as the most recent show and hasn’t populated this Levy & Counsell ep or the Law Talk  one. Help me Blue Yeti, you’re my only hope.

  6. I’ll look into this today. Thanks for the heads up.
