MMMark's Whycandoo Room: Genetic Proof Of Oneness

Last night (1/21/2003) PBS aired a show titled "The Journey Of Man," which profiles the work of geneticist Spencer Wells, who also stars in the two-hour episode. This program is based on fifteen years of research profiling the genetic codes in thousands of blood samples taken from all known ethnic groups around the world. It was not possible to do this science prior to genetic testing technologies on blood.

It’s now official! Just in case there was any doubt in your mind about where you come from, where your roots are, or who you are related to, Spencer has proven that we are all of the same extended human family. By tracking a Y chromosome marker passed on to each generation through men, he has plotted the path of human migration over the entire planet from a single tribe in Namibia, Africa beginning 50,000 years ago. We are all their children. We are all related to people of all cultures, religions and skin colors.

So now I feel obligated to wish everyone of you family members belated happy birthdays wishes and missed holiday greetings. Please take good care of all my cousins, aunts, uncles, mothers, fathers, nieces, nephews and send photos often so I can keep track of my six-billion relatives!

Hugs and Kisses From Your Brother > > > Mark

PS > See ya at the next family reunion!!!

that's OK strydg, as long as it's not a first.

Reminds me of the movie "Six Degrees of Seperation"

Great log, as usual, but this one shows YOU! Great program, wonderful interpretation, beautiful message. Thank you. Saw a great program akin to this a few months back on Arts & Entertainment on Eve, which said essentially the same. Eve was a black woman. Love ~ Tricia

I wonder - if I looked up a relative or two in Timbuktoo do you think they'd put me up for a couple of weeks !

Great to have it confirmed - we are all Truly the Brotherhood of Man/Woman.

Ever notice how the wealthiest families intermarry? Why the duPont's have family mansions all in a row, and different family members occupy them at different times. The Rothschild's have kept their family banking fortunes the same way. The Royals marry royals, cousins to be sure.

If they've managed to get it ALL in that manner, then why can't we get it all back by viewing each other as family, attributing the same importance to each other, and marrying our ideas, our purposes, our goals of pure intent? What a wonderful toy to play with! The definition of family has been made smaller and smaller and smaller, so the few who decided to redefine it could keep the most.(chuckle) I LOVE this idea -- it has so much potential for creative play, creative thinking, creative solutions!

Now I get it. The reason the rich are different is due to all the inbreeding. LOL
Yes tricia we are all one great big family which some forget when they try to distinguish one group from another.
