To anyone who hasn't read the comments to the original article (and the "Dairy Diaspora" graphic), I must quote this one from "L B":
This is standard leftist propaganda that if it can't be "Out of Africa" it has to "Out of the Middle East". Nothing can evolve in (or expand out of) ancient Europe, and in fact ancient Europeans never even really existed, Europe has only ever been a "destination for immigrants". It's been proven that modern (Northern) Europeans are not primarily descended from the small number of Anatolian farmers who shifted their habitat up the Danube during the mid-Holocene Climatic Optimum. (Which incidentally, on the subject of leftist propaganda, was so much warmer than today that Denmark had a Mediterranean climate.) And the signature characteristic of adult lactase persistence in Europe is its identifiability with the blond Nordic type. The blonder you are, not the more Middle Eastern looking you are, the more likely you are to have it. So who are these blonds? Where did they come from? When did they get their hair and eye color? Where did they get those giant ultra-modern skulls and that microcephalin haplogroup D gene for larger brain size from? Where did they really spend the last glacial maximum -- are they the Iberians showing up in Morocco 30,000 years ago? When and by what routes did they re-populate the North Sea/Baltic region? How did they get down to the Ukraine for the Indo-European expansion 5000 years ago? That little bit of background context is needed, before we can ask when, where, and how did they become lactase-persistent, and how did this characteristic spread through Europe, and down to India with their chariots. A background context the Left is working full time today to erase from history -- in advance of the final erasure of its subjects as well.
