Shows the totality of the European Holocaust of the Americas if nothing else.

Ancient DNA shows European wipe-out of early Americans

Published today in Science Advances, the study reveals a striking absence of the pre-Columbian genetic lineages in modern Indigenous Americans; showing extinction of these lineages with the arrival of the Spaniards.

“Surprisingly, none of the genetic lineages we found in almost 100 ancient humans were present, or showed evidence of descendants, in today’s Indigenous populations,” says joint lead author Dr Bastien Llamas, Senior Research Associate with ACAD. “This separation appears to have been established as early as 9000 years ago and was completely unexpected, so we examined many demographic scenarios to try and explain the pattern.”

“The only scenario that fit our observations was that shortly after the initial colonisation, populations were established that subsequently stayed geographically isolated from one another, and that a major portion of these populations later became extinct following European contact. This closely matches the historical reports of a major demographic collapse immediately after the Spaniards arrived in the late 1400s.”
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

Fundamental error : Post hoc ergo propter hoc.

Kids in junior high school should be able to flag that.

Want an example ? The Curse of the Goat.

The Chicago Cubs made a fan who'd brought his goat in with him leave the stadium in 1903.

The Cubs haven't won a World Series since.

While the die-offs were in progress, Natives outnumbered Europeans by huge margins. Many of the dead natives never saw one.

Yet "the Europeans" killed them.

Not from lack of trying... However, it was the diseases that Europeans brought with them that sounded the death knell for many native people in the western hemisphere. Not just North America, but all of the western hemisphere. Diseases which the native inhabitants had little or no immunity to. Diseases can travel faster & farther than any conqueror could.

What uni is trying to say...in a piss-poor manner as usual...is that the Europeans weren't responsible.

Since at this point in history they still thought of disease as a punishment for sin from their flaming asshole of a god he may have a point. Still.... they did bring the germs with them and there is no getting around that.
