    They still lead science, even among a string of defections trying to avoid the red army. All the smart dudes, knew Stalin was coming.

    So you have nothing else substantive to offer on this? Seriously, there are 4 or 5 articles all linked to the same single study. That doesnt class as many. And not one of them suggests its the oldest known migration in any case.


    And thats before we get to your "Out of Africa is whacky" rubbish.

    The conspiracy forum is somewhere else.

    Actually I didnt try that at all, I said they believed a lot of things. And the Aryan bullshit is long known to have been based on a false premise.

    And you still have not provided a shread of evidence for your assertions.

    Yep. On the balance of supporting scientific evidence it seems that the Out of Africa model holds more weight as a hypothesis as opposed to the multi-regional model. The multi-regional model simply lacks substantial evidence. The fossil records used to support this theory are weak and do not provide any significant evidence to suggest that our species Homo sapiens sapiens evolved outside of Africa.

    I've always been fascinated by the stories of Eric the Red and his three sons Leif, Thorvald (the first known European to die in North America), and Thorstein as well as his daughter Freydis. Another explorer contemporary with Ericssons was Thorfinn Karlsefni (for those of you who watch 'Vikings' he was a descendant of Ragnar Lodbrok through his son Bjorn Ironside according to the sagas). Thorfinn's son Snorri is the first known person of European descent to have been born in North America.

    L'Anse aux Meadows remains the only confirmed Viking settlement in North America on the northern tip of Newfoundland but there may be another in southern Newfoundland at Point Rosee.

    Yeah it's amazing how complete garbage can be spouted as long as you ignore the evidence.
