How can say which is older gene and which is newer? in the sense, if african genes are newer than indic genes, vs. if european geans are older than indic ones etc?

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

We blindly accept fake terminology like ASI and ANI because we have been taught to have an Aryan-Dravidian bias in our education. When someone bluffs on those lines - we tend to swallow it whole. Completely agree with you here Sir. The differences are minor. So this Aryan-Dravidian bias is really f...

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

Dhiman ji, Please allow me to reformulate that evidence. Vedic Aryans were quite fond of horses. In fact other people among them Arabs used that fondness and had a roaring business going in supplying horses to the Vedic Aryans as far back as 6500 BCE.
