Get tested – I dare you!!

Been a very interesting week.  First was the TV program about Pinnacle Point and then the day after I read an article about the Genographic Project.

The Genographic Project is attempting to document the long migratory history of our early ancestors.  To date they have gathered 55,000 (from a target of 100,000) DNA samples from indigenous people as well as 360,000 samples from people who have purchased testing kits. 

What this study has also reinforced is that ‘Race’, in terms of deep seated biological differences, doesn’t exist scientifically.

At the genetic level, every person on earth is 99.9% identical.  This low level of genetic diversity, compared to other species of primates, is linked back to the population bottle neck described in my previous post.

So, what are you waiting for.  Get your testing kit here and possibly get the surprise or your life.  You can read about some peoples discoveries here.
