The forgotten histories

Harald Wartooth or Harold Hiltertooth (Old Norse: Haraldr Hilditönn, modern Swedish and Danish: Harald Hildetand) was a legendary king of Sweden, Denmark, Norway and the historical northern German province of Wendland, in the 8th and 9th century. According to the Danish Chronicon Lethrense, his empire reached as far as the Mediterranean.



Penguins that died 44,000 years ago in Antarctica have provided extraordinary frozen DNA samples that challenge the accuracy of traditional genetic aging measurements, and suggest those approaches have been routinely underestimating the age of many specimens by 200 to 600 percent.


Humanity could be much older than we think.

From some scientist on the Eugenics list:

The [ popular, modern - my edit ] hypothesis is based on little else than the dating of various genetic mutations within the human populations.  This is just another nail in the coffin of an essentially political statement of human origins.

Whoops. Biodeterminism rears its ugly head again.

As long as the general has brought it up: Never in recorded history has
diversity been anything but a problem. Look at Ireland with its
Protestant and Catholic populations, Canada with its French and English
populations, Israel with its Jewish and Palestinian populations.


More fat for the fire.
