Maybe it’s my right-sided brain that enables me to see the connection between all things and it’s the left-sided brain of this predominantly male forum which allows for a disconnect that continues to impose man’s will on the intentions of the natural world.
N.B. states that because ‘mixed-race’ offspring are viable in our present time nature must have intended it; well old men on Viagra are able to reproduce, likewise pre-menopausal women are able to reproduce therefore nature must have intended that also. Whether these offspring are contributing members or to the benefit of our human society should be irrelevant; because eventually scientist will find a way to eliminate the genetic causes for Autism and Trisomé 21 (Down/Mongoloid syndrome); this is how I interpret his statement. The fact is that for a long time in pre-history and during recorded history; the product of two distinct branches of humanity were not viable; one has only to interpret the recordings of ancient historians: Instead we ‘choose’ to relegate these reports to the realm of Myth, because it serves our ‘ego.’
G’man cannot make the connection between the conflicting interests of ancient/pre-historic pastoralist and those herders who became ‘integrated’ into their societies; and what seems to be a never ending tribal warfare in our current time, which is inflamed or exploited from time to time; there is genetic evidence however, which proves that many South Asians, North-East and North-West continental Africans carry a genetic mutation that occurred outside the continent of Africa; this genetic marker is on the male line of humanity and it is the same for almost all non-Continental-African males, regardless of phenotype and it somehow proves inevitable that this genetic marker is preeminent among livestock herding societies.
There is also scientific proof that the Rhesus factor is preeminent in Caucasian women; the treatment to bring potential offspring to full term or ensure its survival to adulthood was a consequence of 20th century science. The Disciple seems to believe that nothing can eliminate Black or Negroid despite the fact that the majority of species once inhabiting the planet have gone extinct; case in point the cold adapted hominid whose remains have been found on the ‘margins’ of his ancient domain; the Northern and Arctic regions; An analogous situation could be drawn from the Negritos/Melanesians who now exist in small numbers on the periphery of South-Asian and South Pacific societies, but who carry genetic markers which prove continental African origins; but who are currently on their way toward extinction or complete assimilation.
There is no denying that the cold adapted hominid developed a different phenotype; one can also argue for the development of a different psychology; these we can choose to attribute to nature; but we can never claim it was nature’s intent that both hominids become re-integrated that would be the height of hubris. The reintegration and its consequences was and is clearly a choice of ‘man.’
