Re: Out-of-India - From Theory to Truth: Part 2

Dr Shiv should be persuaded to be back here.

And as an aside ..the ones who are well versed with Genetics ..can document the changing definitions of ASI and ANI even since Reich first came up with these classifications.Ditto with what constitutes Iran Farmer and Steppe.

The win can be achieved there

It only means the Paper is neither here nor there.

Re: Out-of-India - From Theory to Truth: Part 2

^^ This is big. If true (can't see full article as it's behind a paywall)... it suggests that the very construct of "Steppe_EMBA", which (per Lazaridis 2016) is modeled as a mixture of Anatolian HG and Iranian Neolithic, is bull$hit. Hence Steppe_MLBA (modeled by Vagheesh et al as 74% Ste...

There are 2 main approaches as I see it 1) Shiv's approach, which argues that genetics does not mean language. Sanskrit is likely several thousand years old.
