    Ok, the the Khoisan possess some of the deepest lineages in DNA, your point being? These lineages are very old and its doubtful the people who possess some of these oldest lineages look like the people who originally possessed them.

    What is your point? First off, the Sandawe of Tanzania have the world's oldest dna which links them to the original humans. Why would you speculate people who irinated in sub-saharan African didn't 'look' like the people today?

    Your post said original man, big deal its a well known fact that the first humans originated in Africa, you're not posting anything groundbreaking.

    This is a relevant question charlie bass, why would you speculate the original people of sub-saharan Africa looked different than the people of today? What is the basis of your speculation? Why the seemingly hostile attitude?

    I'm not speculating I'm making a point that physical the two do not look alike. The Khoisan aren't the only ones who possess these deep lineages, Ethiopians also share them with the Khoisan. Lineages show relationships, not phenotype, the Y-chromosone and mtDNA lineages are just two loci and neither of them code for phenotype. I wouldn't call a Khoisan the original man on the basis of sharing deep lineages.

    why do your posts all seem to verge on the hostile?
    you appear to be condescending toward everyone who does not have your elevated level of "knowledge". why is that?
    when you go to class do your professors look down on you?

    knowledge that is shared with a negative attitude does no good.

    my attitude is bright, the unsupported ramblings of people in this forum who obviously have no real knowldege about African diversity is what makes me mad.

    i used to get mad.

    now, i try to help out.
    clearly, there is much ignorance in this world. what can we do to change that?
    do those of us with some good information have any responsibility to teach?

    i didn't have a chance to go to school. i'd love any information that i can get.
    you know that there is a much larger audience for these posts than the immediate poster. lots of people read and lurk.
    any thing that you can share that will correct mis information will go a long way.

    Why shouldn't I post it? Why does anyone post anything that is a well known fact? What kind of **** is that??

    The original human beings were African hunter-gatherer societies that populated Europe and Asia. Do you have a problem with that. I don't remember saying the Khoisan themselves were necessarily the original people, but studying them and the Sandawe and other groups helps provide some insight to the original people.

    "my attitude is bright, the unsupported ramblings of people in this forum who obviously have no real knowldege about African diversity is what makes me mad."

    How the hell is posting information on ancient dna in Africans or sub-saharan Africa being the cradle of mankind 'rambling' or denying African diversity. You must be the only mf only planet Earth who is qualified to know anything.
