My argument exactly, is that the chart you provided does not lend to clear proof that jesus was not African.

Next time post the study. It will cut down on a lot of confusion. As far as claiming the land I didn't say I cared one way or the other. I was stating the intent of that article that accompanied the chart in the link you provided.

The people who wrote that article are going on the assumption that the people in the region today were there then. Ergo the studies chart shows the Ashkenazi belong.

I gave you the link telling how the Assyrians forcably moved populations.

>>50%? It might not prove but it sure creates room for doubt.

Like Prego spaghetti sauce, "It's in there".

Nothing. It does deal with the moving of populations that you claimed there is no evidence of.

That's what I said.

Your words: What I said was if that was the case then >why weren't the Askenazi closer to northern Europeans, meaning they >didn't intermix with the Northern Europeans very much (at least on >the paternal side).

I was correcting you. So to be clear. I figured that was what you meant.

>>This is flawed. First the Persians donít need to conquer

Ain't that something. I'll study up on that.

I know they are. I was pointing out hair texture. Which your following statement now shows to be irrelevant.

>no, burnt is not burnt, at least not in this case.

Depending on the version or interpretation. Some say burnished as you point out. Some say refinished or refined. While still others say as burned in a furnace.

>>Now that I think about it. Irish folk are know for going

>ok, whatever.

I just saying what I have observed with my own eyes on many occasions with peoples and families I know to be Irish. They are very faired skin. Even those with freckles. When they tan they turn red then peel. You said this is by you mothers account so that makes it second hand. I'm not really arguing the getting tanned part just the degree to which his tan darkened to. It's a matter of perspective.

It did when we were arguing texture. Again you rendered that irrelevant
