The Art of Historiography

Source: Historical Research Method: Home (Edith Cowan University ) 2012 A.D. Historiography is the study of historical writing. God is blessing us to reclaim our history, so it is important we know what we are looking for and know how to piece history together accurately as we progress. Below is the historical method from Edith Cowan University that one can use for research. Remember to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit in all that you do. From the Historical Research Method source, " Historical research or historiography, "attempts to systematically recapture the complex nuances, the people,meanings,events,and even ideas of the past that have…

Prioritize Ancestry over Skin Color

Prioritize Ancestry over Skin Color

Source: (2348) ISRAELITES CAN COME IN ALL COLORS FROM THE ORIGINAL DARK SKINNED HEBREWS (Hebrew History Channel) 2021 A.D.  Note: From the source. The lady who appears to be "white" is pointing to an image of her father. This video should serve as a paragon that color is just one part of an individual's ethnic identity. Ancient historians, along with taking note of an individuals and/or peoples ancestral history, would often note an individuals and/or peoples color, hair type/texture, and their customs to try and classify which ethnic group they came. If we are to follow the example of ancient historians in…

Sub-Saharan DNA Related to Phoenicians

Sub-Saharan DNA Related to Phoenicians

Source: Population history of the Sardinian people inferred from whole-genome sequencing (bioRxiv) 2016 A.D. From the source, "The ADMIXTURE and PCA analyses above (Figure 4) suggest that Sardinian samples, such as those outside of Ogliastra, may show some evidence of admixture with mainland sources, consistent with previous reports (Moorjani et al. 2011, Loh et al. 2013, Hellenthal et al. 2014). For example, Cagliari individuals demonstrated ~7% of a non-Sardinian (“purple”) component that is found in substantial fraction among extant individuals from Southern Europe, Middle East, Caucasus, and North Africa. To assess this in detail we used the f3-test for admixture (Patterson et…

Sub-Saharan DNA in Arabia and Yemen

Sub-Saharan DNA in Arabia and Yemen

Source: Saudi Arabian Y-Chromosome diversity and its relationship with nearby regions (BMC Genomic Data) 2009 A.D. From the source, "Saudi Arabia differentiates from other Arabian Peninsula countries by a higher presence of J2-M172 lineages. It is significantly different from Yemen mainly due to a comparative reduction of sub-Saharan Africa E1-M123 and Levantine J1-M267 male lineages. Around 14% of the Saudi Arabia Y-chromosome pool is typical of African biogeographic ancestry, 17% arrived to the area from the East across Iran, while the remainder 69% could be considered of direct or indirect Levantine ascription. Interestingly, basal E-M96* (n = 2) and J-M304*…

Evidence for the Existence of Totem, Animism, Tattoo, Ancestor Worship, and Animal Worship Culture in the Ancient Near East

Evidence for the Existence of Totem, Animism, Tattoo, Ancestor Worship, and Animal Worship Culture in the Ancient Near East

Source: Totemism (Jewish Encyclopedia) 1906 A.D. From the source, " A primitive social system in which members of a clan reckoned kinship through their mothers, and worshiped some animal or plant which they regarded as their ancestor and the image of which they bore tattooed on their persons. It was suggested by J. S. Maclennan (in "The Fortnightly Review," 1870, i. 207) that this system existed among the early Hebrews; and his view was taken up by Robertson Smith (in "The Journal of Philology," 1880), who based his theories upon the researches of J. G. Frazer on totemism. Robertson Smith…

SLC45A2 is Found in African Americans-Some Ancient Sidonians had Darker Skin than Lebanese Today Due to Variants From SLC45A2

SLC45A2 is Found in African Americans-Some Ancient Sidonians had Darker Skin than Lebanese Today Due to Variants From SLC45A2

Source: Genetic variants for skin color in African Americans linked to vitamin D deficiency (Science Daily) 2021 A.D. From the source, " Scientists found three regions (SLC24A5, SLC45A2 and OCA2) in the genes of African Americans with strong links to skin color and severe vitamin D deficiency. The genetic variant rs2675345, which is near a region in the gene called SLC24A5, showed the strongest association with skin pigmentation and vitamin D deficiency. Studies have shown that individuals with darker skin pigmentation require longer or more intense ultraviolet radiation exposure to synthesize sufficient levels of vitamin D. In other words, if…

Romans Categorized Peoples by the Physical Appearance, Not By Parentage or ‘Blood’-Roman Perception of Mediterranean Phenotype was ‘albus or leukos’ (White) But Not Too White

Romans Categorized Peoples by the Physical Appearance, Not By Parentage or ‘Blood’-Roman Perception of Mediterranean Phenotype was ‘albus or leukos’ (White) But Not Too White

Source: Roman Perceptions of Blacks (Virginia Tech University Libraries) 1993 A.D. From the source, "Abstract. Certain preconceptions about 'blacks' in predominantly 'white' societies have distorted modern visions of the ways in which Aethiopes were perceived in Roman society, resulting in much misinterpretation of the relevant texts. In Roman perceptions categories like black African, white, 'paleface' and swarthy were neither communities nor socially defined 'races' with ascribed group-statuses. Categorisation was determined by the physical appearance of the individual person, not by parentage or 'blood'...Wiesen saw this text as evidence of a Roman perception of blacks as natural inferiors of 'the white…
