. Glad it is not for you.
Before the war, Right-wing Ultranationalism among AXIS POWERS included VARIOUS propaganda including that which supposedly explained Nazi Aryan connections with the Turks and the Japanese via their common origins in Central Asia, the Aryan homeland. The purer bloods are better than mongrels is one of their concepts. Unfortunately, I know some AFers posing as supremacists believed in such theories albeit in more beneign and diluted forms. Others tend to regard this as the ALTAIC theory which connect the Japonic and Korean languages as related to Turkic although serious linguists and geneticists are questioning the veracity of such theory. Although we have lots of AF people being swayed to accept that as undeniable scientific fact.
The Ainus with genotypes belonging to Haplogroup D they claimed came from Siberia but Haplogroup D just like Haplogroup C and various offshoots of Haplogroup K like Haplogroup O and Haplogroup N all came from Great Coastal Migration or the Southern Route via Southeast Asia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haplogroup_D_(Y-DNA)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haplogroup_C_(Y-DNA)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haplogroup_N_(Y-DNA)
Scientific studies are concurring on the SEA or Sundaland(IndoChina and Insular SEA) Origins of East Asians.
Karafet spoke of three to four major migration waves and never mentioned Central Asia as a source of such migration waves.
On the other hand, HUGO Pan Asia SNP
said of only one single Major wave of migrations but stil via the Southern Route. In a way they are both right that the Northern Routes is insignificant in terms of Genetic Inluence among East Asians and it is more of a recent phenomenon only during the end of the Glacial period and more pronounced during the recent historical Silk road era. For the most part Central Asia(Gobi desert and Altai mountain ranges) along with the MAJOR GENETIC BARRIER, the HIMALAYAN mountain ranges were generally inhospitable to Human settlement during the Paleolithic Ice Age period. And they concluded Central Asia as more of a HOSTLAND and not homelands of both Caucasoids and Mongoloids. The proof is the GENETIC ADMIXTURES OF GENERALLY NEWER HAPLOTYPES as compared to the older haplotypes like the subclades of the O haplogroup, C and D haplogroups found in Indochina and the rest of Southeast Asia.
Studies done by:
1) Chu et al http://www.pnas.org/content/95/20/11763.fu...ab8f48467d10dcb
2) Su et al http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1226206/
...also both concluded East Asians came from Southeast
via the Southern route and debunked the Northern route(Central Asia homeland) as the major genetic influence relegating it only to a minor genetic influence only.
As for Karafet
which I agree for the most part: First Migration wave
, are the offshoots of K haplogroup which settled in Australia and Melanesia. Part of the Great Southern Migration including both companions of K haplo, which are the C and D haplogroups.
Second wave during the time of the Toba eruption created a cool dry desert condition in South Asia which spared much of Australia and Melanesia. Melanesians developed the very first Agriculture of planting rootcrops. Second wave
correspond to the Neonetization most probably started in very cool desert environs in South Asia in POST TOBA ERUPTION. And you have the Southern Mongoloid
phenotypes not unlike the Austro-Asiatics in India
which started to appear during the Ice Age along with initial no sunlight seasons and death of various vegetations and game animals which killed various genetic lines the so called POPULATION BOTTLENECK. Mongoloid O haplogroup emerges as an offshoot of the initial K haplogroup from the First wave which didn't had the Denisovan mix as the Papuans. Mongoloidization and Neonitization of some offshoots of both C and D haplogroups also occured during this period. Some Australoids like the Ainus migrated UPWARDS OR NORTHWARDS
as evidence by the Australoids human fossils
found by anthropologists as far north as Beijing. Domestication of plants and animals probably started and matured later on untill and more pronounced on the 3rd wave with the bringing of domesticated jungle fowls and pigs by the Neolithic people. Third migration wave
is the Neolithic migration by certain subgroup of Haplotype O1 which corresponds to the Austronesian expansion due to rising sea levels with the eventual inundation of their Sundaland homeland(IndoChina and Insular SEA)
and the mitochnodrial DNA Polynesian motiff accdg to the most recent study proving that this came from Indonesia and Philippines and not from Taiwan or South China
. Neolithic Agricultural revolution also started throughout East Asia. MORE Neolithic migrations of the Southern Mongoloids with Sundadonty northwards occured due to the RETREATING ICE GLACIERS DURING THE END OF THE LAST ICE AGE away from the catastrophic inundations of SUNDALAND(INDOCHINA OR SEA) produced the Northern mongoloids with Sinodonty
.Fourth is the SOUTHWARD MIGRATION
in most recent times due to strife and hunger during the era of various civil wars up north.
A repost from another thread:
which explains why some Nordic Swedes have Asiatic features...A counter-clockwise northern route of the Y-chromosome haplogroup N from Southeast Asia towards Europehttp://www.nature.com/ejhg/journal/v15/n2/full/5201748a.html
Although having variable frequency scales, the spatial distributions for ancestral paragroup NO-M214*, paragroup N-M231* and the prevalent hg O-M175 (Figure 2a, c, d) are generally congruent and highlight Southeast Asia as the most parsimonious source region of these clades. The spread pattern of paragroup NO* approximates the same regions of Southeast Asia as paragroup N*, although being present at an even lower frequency compared with N*18, 19 (data from Kayser et al19 updated in present study). More notable, however, is the fact that the spatial dynamics of the whole N and O haplogroups greatly differ from each other. The split between N* and O is dated to 34.64.7 thousand years (ky). The age of STR variation of hg O in Southeast Asia probably exceeds 26 ky,10 and its numerous subclades currently predominate in southern and southeastern Asia extending into northern China, Manchuria and some Siberian populations,7, 9, 11, 20, 21 as well as westward to the eastern sector of the Indian subcontinent10 and eastward to Oceania.18, 19
