    Poll! Re: Do you believe in a Europe of the Peoples?

    It would ease many tensions if geographical boundaries were aligned more closely with cultural/racial/linguistic ones. However the Eurovision song contest would last for days!

    Re: Famous Ancestors

    Re: Diversity of mtDNA lineages in Portugal

    I dispute this last claim. How can there have been no "moorish empire" in the N. of Portugal, when to the North in Galicia there was a Berber revolt in 750, because of their treatment by the Arabs....

    Clearly, which is what my counter-example was meant to highlight. So what are the genetics of eye colour inheritance ? There must be a geneticist somewhere on Skadi ?
