    Question Links Between Early Siberians and Aurignacian Europeans?

    Well early Siberians certainly looked like Aurignacian Europeans, and there seems to have been a cultural association accross northern Eurasia too.
    Give me a source for this...

    Issue 2: On the superficial similarities of Capoids and Mongoloids, issue is resolved. They are two different types of traits and adaptions that superficially look similar.

    Moreover, the slanting lids of Capoids is of another nature than the Mongolenfalte .
    The fold of the upper eye lid is horizontal positioned over the eye, leaves the canthus free and droops at the outer end as in old people. It contains a fatty cushion adding up to its heavyness.

    The extensive paedomorphy, recapitulating fetal traits especially seen in the manifestation of a local, non-Mongoloid eye fold, might have been the Capoid answer to the necessicity to environmental adaptation in the desert.
    -The eye fold might be an adaptation to the glare and flying particles, which is both present in a snowy/icy and a sandy environment.
    -Their may also be sexual selection involved, since females of the Capoid societies mainly depend on their husbands for the hunt in the dry environment, as just females of northern Eurasia, especially during glaciation periods. Even the skin color could be sexual selection towards a more neotenic look in females.
    -There is no fossil record in the south of a Mongoloid form, and all present forms are traceable to recent expansions.
    -The most "extreme" of the Mongoloid type are found in the arctic regions.
    -The "Mongoloid" traits are conducive to cold-endurance.
    -Concluding that two superficial similarities are a result of the same reason is the poor man's reasoning, without the use of the gift of higher analysis that is a human trait. The reason behind most superficially similar phenomenon in the world do not follow this "rule"... i.e. The ice in the bridge got that way by a differently from the ice in winter.
