Once more, I implore and painstakingly EXPLAIN, IF they can breed, they are, by DEFINITION, the SAME species.
Different race? Maybe. Same species? Definitely.
Peştera Muierii woman is related to Europeans, but she is not a direct ancestor
Doesn’t have to be, a lot of bloodlines died.
Reduced diversity in Europe caused by Last Glaciation, not out-of-Africa bottleneck
Natural selection kills diversity. We know this.
Genetic load appears indifferent across 40,000 years of European history.
Postmodern habits like drugs, drinking, bad diet, sleeping around, can screw up your epigenetics over a few generations. We absorb viruses into our genome. Outbreeding depression does it in one. You can, in fact, fuck up tens of thousands of years of effort on part of your ancestors. If only we had a commandment about this.
Pet theory: planes are evil. Sink the boats.
Few complete human genomes from the European Early Upper Palaeolithic (EUP) have been sequenced. Using novel sampling and DNA extraction approaches, we sequenced the genome of a woman from “Peştera Muierii,” Romania who lived ∼34,000 years ago to 13.5× coverage. The genome shows similarities to modern-day Europeans, but she is not a direct ancestor. Although her cranium exhibits both modern human and Neanderthal features, the genome shows similar levels of Neanderthal admixture (∼3.1%) to most EUP humans but only half compared to the ∼40,000-year-old Peştera Oase 1. All EUP European hunter-gatherers display high genetic diversity, demonstrating that the severe loss of diversity occurred during and after the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) rather than just during the out-of-Africa migration. The prevalence of genetic diseases is expected to increase with low diversity; however, pathogenic variant load was relatively constant from EUP to modern times, despite post-LGM hunter-gatherers having the lowest diversity ever observed among Europeans.
The Neanderthals were human. They were, at most, a race. Basic classification 101. It’s politically incorrect to admit this.
Welcome Global Cooling, it kills off redundant diversity. The people still living are the winners.
OOA is laughable at this point. Multi-Regional is correct. They don’t have to keep tweaking it to fit the data, replete with Black Swans that shouldn’t be there.
Assumption is incorrect, diseases become more serious, the higher the diversity. It’s akin to mixing random chemicals in a beaker. You’re more likely to blow your arm off, the more different the ingredients or elements. Well, mutations work the same way and most are disadvantageous i.e. they lower Darwinian fitness. A novel combination is dangerous. Inbreeding depression takes centuries in a super-restricted, incestuous environment; meanwhile, outbreeding depression occurs in one generation between any two genomes of sufficient distance. Odds are, if a kid has some super-rare obscure disease, barely recorded, they’re mixed race. The more mixed, the more health problems, including mental health. Taboos are based on health outcomes. They demonstrate low fitness for any one environment and ‘fail to thrive’ in either parental environment as a result. It dooms them to never belong and fit in, a core human need as a social species. Every group has a runt to its litter, but that shouldn’t be encouraged as the norm, it’s cruel. Happily, this means such mutants and feeble specimens were almost unheard of throughout our history, so we have nothing to feel guilty about. It’s literally the parent’s fault they made an experimental kid. Nobody forced you to play God.
This is why Africans in Africa are healthier than the mongrels in America. It isn’t just diet. Also why full-blooded Africans generally hate them. They are equally disgusted by the degeneration as any other race, it’s human aversion to disease.
Similarly, White Americans have extremely high white DNA but also suffer poorer health compared to their homelands. Why? Admixture of subrace. The same applies to a lesser-degree within a race, of sufficient genetic distance. It’s unlikely to be fatal, but breeding with a person with high mutations (r-type) will ruin the bloodline of the person whose is low. It’s only fine if they’re both low, which is unlikely when so distant in ancestry as to cross countries (and emigration is r-select). Consider the children of supermodels. Regression to the mean, except mutations only build. So you get a bland, dull looking child, nothing special. Breeding two racehorses is fine, breeding it with a donkey makes a mule, however good the racehorse genes of one parent. That’s the evil of genetic regression. Beware it. A racehorse with a regular horse may be fine but is likely to be uninspiring by the racing parental standard. This also applies to plants and flowers. Excess distance causes fertility dysfunction and is collectively called the process of speciation. Enough of the odd couples die off genetically while others, more natural, succeed and replace them using natural selection (by omission) to win zero sum. It works on a mathematical level. It’s basic game theory. Live or die.
EVOLUTION HAS NO CONTINUOUS SPEED. IT IS AN ONGOING PROCESS AND OPERATES FASTER SOME TIMES THAN OTHERS. I repeat, evolution is non-uniform as a biological driving force to live. I’ve never seen a shred of proof for it being the same everywhere, at all times and in all peoples. That smacks of absurd equalism and doesn’t account for the violence of history, both natural disasters and wars. There is much to the contrary, like this. Bloodlines die out, in part, all the damn time. All the bloody time! Yet certain people who claim to be high IQ like to pretend it has a constant speed like ‘c’, it is a positive claim and I’d like evidence. It doesn’t have to make sense to you, to be demonstrably true.
How many of Edison’s many children survived? Surprisingly few. That’s in a century. Writ large, same pattern. The birth rate doesn’t matter, longevity of genes does. Do not conflate them. Dilution is also a partial death. It’s like genetic atrophy. When children disappoint their parents, whose fault is that?
I find it funny supposed Christians mock evolution, only to insist on muh birth rates. If you believe in Revelations, it won’t matter, because winning is Darwinian. It isn’t about cross-comparisons to other groups, more r-select (read: arrogant while times are good) and their over-populating to over-consume and eventual, frequent famine (hello China), but quality within. Genetics are moreso about what you DON’T have than what you do. i.e. You can’t steal IQ, China, keep funding genetic engineering though. You tried. R-types can only run an ‘Empire’ of inferior quality by oppressing their own kind and even then, it fractures and implodes due to their sadism (low group loyalty > no in-group empathy). They are collectivists who hate freedoms and rights. Introduce more k-select competition and they’re easily brought to heel, like the French. Beaten (and saved) by a nation of shop-keepers. There’s a difference between conspicuous consumption and responsible innovation. R-types can’t tell until it’s all failing and none of their people running the machines (high corruption, nepotism) were smart enough to invent them (low child investment), so cannot fix it. Corrupt societies deserve to suffer and die. Evolution is social as much as genetic. = epigenome
TLDR: With debt bubbles as with population bubbles. It’s the same bubble. Malthus wins.
While K-types look foolish during good times, they lose the least (high child investment pays off) when times get tough and due to high group loyalty, fare better against challenges by more r-groups. Ks have the steadier gene = winning. You don’t buy a Ferrari on credit to compete with your neighbour, you wait for his to get repossessed.

This low load of mutations and high fertility into the modern era, suggests Neanderthals were the same race, and they’re trying to report the finding without admitting this. Curse the editors.
nb I wonder whether the RNA trial mutants will be having fertility problems with their own, or only with the rest of us. Speciation is epigenetic.
