"Brit-Am Now"-156: Genetics-3

November 27, 2002
DNA tests are not infallible. The results of DNA tests used in courts and
their interpretation are contested frequently by lawyers and other experts.
These tests are not the same as those used in academic research for large
populations. The tests used by the police in criminal cases or in paternity
suits, etc can cost thousands of dollars. Those used to trace populations
etc cost a few dollars each when employed on a mass scale.

Quotations below are given without the source since the people concerned
would not mind me using the information but may object to their names being
mentioned. The "facts" given are part of the public domain and considered
"common knowledge" by those in the field and may be easily verified.

Read the quotations and then go to Brit-Am commentary below:

Quote 1:
<<When you see quite a bit of 'Norse dna' in Armenians, who were
Christians with their ancient language and culture long before the
Vikings reached the Ukraine, and with let's say Mediterranean
features, you realise that the Hg2 and 3 progenitors each had 2 sons
thousands of years ago and one went north, one south to the Middle
East and Armenia - perhaps.

Quote 2:
<<So Jim Wilson's Orkneys paper shows some 'Norse' Hg2.47 in Syria and
Turkey, but the new YCC paper / system will probably put the Syrians in Hg
'F*' or 'G', while the Viking 2.47 is probably in Hg 'I'.

Quote 3:
<<In regard to 'filtering out' incursionary dna in Ireland by surveying
Gaelic-era surnames, you still find up to 20% Hg2 on the east coast
(where most incursors or traders landed) in Gaelic surname groups and
much less in the west, just 100 miles away.

Quote 4:
<<17% of Iraqi Jews who never lived in Europe according to their history,
have U3 mtDNA. Vikings and other Scandinavians have major amounts of U3
mtDNA also.

Remark on DNA Dating:
DNA researchers have set methods for dating the elapse of time of DNA
movements from one place to another (according to the degree of
differentiation). In Iceland these methods gave a date that was 10 (sic)
times to great when compared with known history. In all other cases the
methods have only been compared to ancient history (Stone Age etc) as
conventionally understood. We would say that in these cases also the dates
assumed are at least ten times too great.

Brit-Am commentary based on other as well as the above sources: DNA testing
showed a strong link between Scandinavians and those in Britain considered
having "Viking" blood and the areas of Armenia, Syria, and Turkey, and also
with the Jews of Iraq. This is not consistent with conventional historical
understandings. The system of classification is henceforth to be revised in
order to lessen the strength of the link shown by the system used up to now.
At all events, the results are consistent with the proposition that many
people in Scandinavia came from the area of Northern Syria, Turkey, and the
area and are related to the Jews.

Brit-Am research says that the Scandinavians received settlers from the
Israelite tribes of Gad, Asher, Naphtali, Dan, and Judah. All of these had
territories in the north. Gad in Syria and Turkey, Dan in Turkey (Dananu),
Asher in Lebanon and Syria, Judah in Yada of south-east Turkey. Brit-Am
findings are consistent with DNA researches even though we do not rely upon
them and if they would contradict us we would not be overduly concerned.

Other DNA researches show that:
Many Jews have Scandinavian and related "DNA" signs that are difficult to
Many British and Anglo-Americans have DNA features considered typically Jewish.
Many British and Scandinavians show links to Central Asia, Iran, and even
India. This is consistent with the migratory paths explained by Brit-Am. We
hold that (based on  Anglo-Saxon laws, etc) that there may not have been
much intermixing along the way but, human nature being what it is, some
must have occurred.
A recent, highly-publicized, study emphasized Jewish affinity with
Palestinians, Turks, and the Middle East in general. The study emphasized
certain features and disregarded the importance of others. A similar test
using other, but acceptable parameters, could also have proven the Brit-Am

DNA theories and explanations are constantly being revised sometimes
The latest consensus regarding the Anglo-Saxon invasions of Britain are
that the Anglo-Saxons came over to England in substantial numbers. They
replaced most (but not all) of the males, and married many of the females.
[The previous "Celtic" inhabitants may have already been decimated by
natural calamities. Others were killed out or driven westward].
This is consistent with the understanding of history that we adopted in our
works from the very beginning.
Anglo-Saxon DNA is identical with Frisian (North Holland) and similar to
Danish, different from Norwegian and from Central European.

Brit-Am explanations of migratory paths, etc, in some respects were
consistent with conventional academic understandings,
in other ways similar to those of classical "British-Israel" theory, and in
other ways quite original.
So far our record has been quite good. We have not had to back-track on
anything though we would do so
if the evidence warranted it. On many matters our findings have been
verified, -in some cases quite sensationally.

All the above information is quite important and interesting. It is not
controversial, at present. The only points of dispute
are how it should be interpreted. It is good to know. Easy to verify.
Brit-Am gave it to you.
Brit-Am points the way.
We could easily do much more with even a little extra assistance.
Brit-Am deserves your support.
