    Re: why lot of germans have brown or dark eyes?

    brown / dark eyes are genetically dominant. in cultures with a varied gene pool (such as germany, the crossroads of europe) dominant traits may eventually push out recessive ones without selective breeding.

    Because Germanic people don't have to have blond hair and blue eyes. I don't know where this idea came from that a 100% pure Germanic person has to have blond hair and blue eyes. I know a lot of people of pure Germanic decent who don't have these traits. In fact, most of them don't. Even the Germanic gods didn't all have blond hair and blue eyes. What does that tell you?

    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-
