    If that's the new you posted, I'm still on the old version.

    "what you can do" is hilarious.

    Yes. I took a major hit to my Neanderscore and it appears you did as well. The prior score was at least correlated to ArchThalness. We'll have to see whether this one is correlated to anything other than the specific subset of SNPs it covers.

    I am still on the old with my whopping 2,9 85th percentile. Nationalgeo scrapped their Denisovan, for new kits I believe, but I am 1,5thal and 2,7 deni there so.

    The new version does seem better, but if I get a lower thal score then "muh t-shirt".

    Your Hominin Ancestry
    When our ancestors first migrated out of Africa around 60,000 years ago, they were not alone. At that time, at least two other species of hominin—our cousins—walked the Eurasian landmass: Neanderthals and Denisovans. As our modern human ancestors migrated through Eurasia, they encountered these hominin cousins and interbred, resulting in a small amount of Neanderthal and Denisovan DNA being introduced into the modern human gene pool.

    Most non-Africans are about 2 percent Neanderthal and slightly less than 2 percent Denisovan. Both percentages are calculated using a sophisticated analytical method that looks at parts of your DNA that you share with these hominin populations. The science around this calculation is very new. Thanks to participation from citizens like you, we continue to learn more and refine this method. For this reason, your result may change slightly over time as our accuracy and understanding improves.


    Why does the Geno 2.0 Next Generation chip not test Denisovan ancestry?

    While recalulcating the hominin ancestry for Geno 2.0 Next Generation participants we decided to focus on Neanderthal rather than Denisovan since we understand Neanderthal genetics much better. However, The Genographic Project is an evolving scientific endeavour, and we may reintroduce the Denisovan calculation in the future. Stay tuned for updates.

    I wish for a more graphic version of le Archaic DNA matches, on Gedmatch. They need to put those Melon samples on that calculator.

    Damn Melons.

    There are a lot of good interviews and short videos on youtube, made by him, that might clarify some things. It's amazing how he presents the ancient buildings, while asking engineers, architects, and even people that actually work with stone, to share their opinion. Also, there are a lot of videos about the elongated skulls. If not for anything else, this could be food for thought. :)

    If they originated in the Crimea then I would say they were descended from the Aryans, the timining is certainly right, there are Swastikas found in the Americas as well.

    Why would Swastikas mean anything?

    The swastika is a very old symbol, and to my knowledge it has no unique association to ancient Aryans or any other people group.

    (This is apart from the other consideration that "Aryans" might properly refer to the whole of the human race, as the term "Arya" is actually the name of the Akkadian god said to have created the humans - more commonly spelled "Ea".)

    Before the Aryan migrations the Swastika was only found in the Aryan Homeland, and then appears in many places around the world after.

    The Etymology of Aryan can be found in the Irish aire and the Indian arya, which mean Noble.
