Out Of Africa, My Ass

LONDON — A public claim by a fellow of the prestigious Royal Geographic Society that humans did not all come from Africa — and that blacks, whites and Asians have different ancestors — has been dismissed by world experts as dangerous, wrong and racist.

In a paper widely trumpeted and due for release in book form, Akhil Bakshi, the leader of a recent major scientific expedition supported by India’s prime minister, claims that Negroid, Caucasian and Mongoloid peoples are not only separate races but separate species, having evolved on different continents.

Responding to the claims — developed while Bakshi led the Gondwanaland expedition from India to South Africa — Professor Lee Berger, a leading paleoanthropologist at the University of the Witwatersrand, immediately insisted that, there were no fundamental differences between the races and that all humans had the same genetic and physical roots in Africa.

The prevalent scientific theory of modern humans — the “Out of Africa” model — is that they left Africa just 55,000 years ago and replaced the last remnants of other ancient hominids living in Europe, Asia and elsewhere. The old biological racial distinctions of Caucasian, Negroid and Mongoloid have recently been abandoned by mainstream scientists — removed, for instance, from the US National Library of Medicine in 2003.

Bakshi has become a champion of a minority scientific view called multiregionalism, which claims that modern humans evolved from separate hominid populations. Hominids encompass all humans and the ancient family of human-like ancestors, including large-brained ancient ancestors and unsuccessful species such as Neanderthals.

However, Bakshi — who has no training as an anthropologist — has linked to this model a theory that these populations evolved according to the genetic material left behind when the prehistoric supercontinents, the northern Laurasia and the southern Gondwanaland, broke up. An influential figure in India, Bakshi is also a filmmaker and author who has led four major scientific expeditions since 1994. Bakshi admitted to the Sunday Times that “some of my points may prove to be wrong, and may be seen as Politically Incorrect.

He claims indigenous Negroid populations occur in places like Australia, India, Sri Lanka, the Philippines and the Andaman Islands not because they moved there from Africa, but because all these land masses were once part of Gondwanaland — and that all evolved separately. Whites, according to Bakshi, are from Laurasia and blacks are from Gondwanaland. He argues that, 60,000 years ago, humans could not have crossed vast oceans and deserts to reach remote places like Australia and North America, and they must therefore have evolved there.

Is that James Brown (or some other Jew-hyped "Motown" nigger) in the pic? ROFLMWAO!

I think it's always nice and intellectually stimulating to learn what accounts for the obvious differences between them and us.
But when it comes to my racial awareness, I don't care where these freaks come from. I don't even care whether they are inferior/equal/superior to us. All I know is that this town ain't big enough for the both of us. They and we are just not compatible, and all the geneticists and anthropologists in the world aren't going to change that simple fact. I prefer the common sense of the working man over the intellectual mumbo jumbo of the impractical perfessers. These eggheads are so way up in the clouds that they've lost touch with the every-day ordinary realities of life.

I can recall listening to the old R&B, soul, and funk (against my will) in certain social settings, and very distinctly hearing one of the background singers let out an extremely animalistic "YAAAAAAAH WHOOOOOO!!!" When I saw that drawing of the ancient Proto-Negroid, that's the first thing that came to my mind.... "YAAAAAAAH WHOOOOOO!!!"

Nice to see that creationism isn't the only alternative to a dis-proven Darwinian framework.
