King Tut’s DNA is Western European

EU Online - Despite the refusal of the Secretary General of the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities, Zahi Hawass, to release any DNA results which might indicate the racial ancestry of Pharaoh Tutankhamen, the leaked results reveal that King Tut’s DNA is a 99.6 percent match with Western European Y chromosomes.

The DNA test results were inadvertently revealed on a Discovery Channel TV documentary filmed with Hawass’s permission — but it seems as if the Egyptian failed to spot the giveaway part of the documentary which revealed the test results.

Hawass previously announced that he would not release the racial DNA results of Egyptian mummies — obviously because he feared the consequences of such a revelation.

On the Discovery Channel broadcast, which can be seen on the Discovery Channel website here, or if they pull it, on YouTube, at approximately 1:53 into the video, the camera pans over a printout of DNA test results from King Tut.

Firstly, here is a brief explanation of the results visible in the video. It is a list of what is called Short Tandem Repeats (STRs).

STRs are repeated DNA sequences which are “short repeat units” whose characteristics make them especially suitable for human identification.

These STR values for 17 markers visible in the video are as follows:
DYS 19 – 14 (? not clear)
DYS 385a – 11
DYS 385b – 14
DYS 389i – 13
DYS 389ii – 30
DYS 390 – 24
DYS 391 – 11
DYS 392 – 13
DYS 393 – 13
DYS 437 – 14 (? not clear)
DYS 438 – 12
DYS 439 – 10
DYS 448 – 19
DYS 456 – 15
DYS 458 – 16
DYS 635 – 23
YGATAH4 – 11

What does this mean? Fortunately, a genius by the name of Whit Athey provides the key to this list. Mr Athey is a retired physicist whose working career was primarily at the Food and Drug Administration where he was chief of one of the medical device labs.

Mr Athey received his doctorate in physics and biochemistry at Tufts University, and undergraduate (engineering) and masters (math) degrees at Auburn University. For several years during the 1980s, he also taught one course each semester in the electrical engineering department of the University of Maryland. Besides his interest in genetic genealogy, he is an amateur astronomer and has his own small observatory near his home in Brookeville, MD.

He also runs a very valuable website called the “Haplogroup Predictor” which allows users to input STR data and generate the haplogroup which marks those STR data.

For those who want to know what a haplogroup is, here is a “simple” definition: a haplogroup is a group of similar haplotypes that share a common ancestor with a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) mutation.

Still none the wiser? Damn these scientists.

Ok, let’s try it this way: a haplotype is a combination of multiple specific locations of a gene or DNA sequence on a chromosome.

Haplogroups are assigned letters of the alphabet, and refinements consist of additional number and letter combinations, for example R1b or R1b1. Y-chromosome and mitochondrial DNA haplogroups have different haplogroup designations. In essence, haplogroups give an inisight into ancestral origins dating back thousands of years.

By entering all the STR data inadvertently shown on the Discovery video, a 99.6 percent fit with the R1b haplogroup is revealed.

The significance is, of course, that R1b is the most common Y-chromosome haplogroup in Europe reaching its highest concentrations in Ireland, Scotland, western England and the European Atlantic seaboard — in other words, European through and through.

And while we're into the issue of exposing realities -

Its such a pity the BNP won't fight back by exposing the rest of it.
Including -

Gimmicks, victimhood and flaccid, self-centered website are getting us nowhere.
Fightback now!

Sentinel - Any practical suggestions as to how we should 'fight back'?

We stand in elections, do street activism, and try to reach out to the public.

If half the people who said they support us, actually got up and voted for us, we would have a bunch of M.P's by now.

Thanks for your comment, maybe you should post it on the main website?

Thanks, ic1male, I don't mean to sound overly critical. Frustration and anger, I suppose.

Practical suggestions as to how we should fight back?
Well, there are many more than mine, I appreciate that.
I think we must understand that the general public are unaware of the big picture, thanks mainly to the msm, dumbing down procedures, the fear factor and the crafty lies of the establishment politicians.
Ignorance and apathy. Its not their fault, but its the main reason they don't vote for the BNP in greater numners, or are more outspoken against liblabcontrick.
Its up to the BNP therefore, to remedy the situation by being more aggressive toward the liblabcon, and in the process, using their website initially, to tell the other side of the story and expose the liblabcon mercilessly and repetitively so that the public are made aware of who and what the enemy really is, and to explain what is being done to us.
Its about not taking it, and instead going on the attack so that the public realise they are being turned over but that they do have a champion who knows the score in full, and is prepared to expose it and take on their enemies. They will then become radicalised and more militant, instead of being cowed and left in ignorance.
Basically, take the gloves off and tell the public in terms they immediately understand exactly who and what their enemies are.
To hell with PC, 'racism', 'nazis' and all that guff. Tell the liblabcon to ram it, because it is they who are all those things and more, not us.
Turn it around on them.
That's what I mean by a fight back.

I understand the frustration.

We just have to keep plugging on and exposing the hypocracy like you say.

Most people have no idea how much this bankrupt country gives out in foreign aid for example.

I beleive the votes will climb eventually, we did get almost 3 times as many as we did in 2005 afterall.
