    Re: Slavs and Balts = Mongols?

    Soon we'll be able to bypass the uncertainty surrounding Tat-C — and gender-specific markers in general — by looking at autosomal DNA. Not enough studies have been conducted yet, as geneticists are...

    Re: Neolithic Gene Frequencies in Europeans

    Sorry, but you haven't proven anything. First of all, you're still discussing haplogroups, which aren't relevant to the data in question. Secondly, neither one of us is qualified to question Chikhi's...

    Re: Neolithic Gene Frequencies in Europeans

    I doubt the estimates are wrong. They're not even based on haplogroup frequencies, so Barac's criticism is moot. They were derived using a method that Chikhi et al. argue convincingly is vastly more...

    No it isn't. Blond hair is not an exclusively Nordic trait, and treating it as such is the signature of Nordicism. As a matter of fact, Coon makes emphatically clear that blondism throughout Italy is...

    Yes, although others may have mixed eyes, which are much more common among southern Europeans than pure light eyes. It's not always easy to determine from photos. But regardless, pigmentation alone...

    I see very few Nordic influences. Most of those people look to be blends of Alpines and Mediterraneans, which is the racial make-up of southern Italy according to Coon. A few Dinarics can be seen as...

    Better photos of Southern Italians

    The Sicilians linked to in this thread are a fairly good sampling of the population, but many of the pictures are dark and poor quality, and the effects of tanning on what are mostly young people...

    That's possible. Different studies will always generate slightly different results, depending on sample pools and sizes. The point is, Sicilians aren't significantly Negroid, despite what's often...

    Forum members' amateur evaluations of phenotypes notwithstanding, genetic research indicates that Sicilians are neither of Negroid nor of Moorish descent:

    "Mediterraneans are sexual savages"?

    Some ignoramus made that statement in an old thread I was browsing through, and others chimed in claiming without knowledge that Southern Europe had higher rape rates. But here's the cold, hard...
