>>>Finally, much hype is made of our “forgotten” Jewish past. The funny thing is, nothing is forgotten. The fact that all of us are talking about the Jewish ancestors who made up *ONE* part of our ancestry, means nothing has been forgotten. But what is strange is that people are amplifying this one single aspect of our ancestry, for whatever reason. Each of us has four grandparents. Logically speaking is their any reason to boast of any one of those grandparents over the other? Not really. We may do this due to favoritism, but in actual genetic fact, each grandparent contribute
Not really. We may do this due to favoritism, but in actual genetic fact, each grandparent contributes to us with equal likelihood.
Again I would have to disagree here. First of all I didnt use the term ‘Jewish Past’ but ‘Jewish heritage’ which are not necessarily the same. Nor did I made any claim about Jewish ancestors, but I said ‘read this together with the YDNA results — just trying to be closer to some level of conlcusion on those results which actually doenst assert anything but having 25% Semitic contribution. The simple logic that i use is – ‘If it looks like ….. and kwaks like a duck, Its a duck’. Thats it. Simple. We just like most others in kerala looks typically indian, and the available MtDNA shows almost 100% south asian (I would say Dravidian), but YDNA shows 33% (20/59) South Asian, 25%(14/59)Semite and 42% Aryan (16/59 r1a1a – persian/aryan, 8/59 R2 – Northern/balkan).
