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

C-14 dating puts the skeletons at 2300BC. I don't think this damages the recent genetic findings b/c they supposedly came after. It's the spin on it that will prove to be extremely damaging. With this they will declare that AIT happened and the origin of 'PIE' lie in Central Asia. That's it. Until I...
