Yep a sensible approach
If you had read the replies/sources made earlier you would have read they did not travel directly from Africa to South America, but thru Asia and the
South Pacific. They did not make an Atlantic crossing.
Hans: I was responding not to you but to the more common theory of how Africans are thought to have gotten to the Americas. Yes Asians who were once
Africans (we we all were Africans actually if you go back far enough) did go to the Americas thru Asia. The evidence for the Polynesians making it the
Americas is inconclusive (although I believe they might have made it) but only after the Americas were already populated
This has nothing to do with the Olmec, you're asking a completely irrelevant question.
Hans: As noted above I wasn’t talking to you
Their migratory route is well documented, visit those links to understand where they were, and weren't. It's flawed thinking to say "they weren't
here, so it's impossible for them to be there."
Hans: The route of Africans to Asians, becoming Asians who then moved to the Americas and becoming Native Americans is accepted. I’m not quite
getting you point. What time frame are you saying this occurred in?
You can't ignore the DNA evidence either.
Hans: Whose ignoring it? Native Americans were once Asians, Asians were once African, that is your source of the Y. By this measure all native
Americas are ‘African” is that your point?
Olmec and their descendants such as the Mayans have an African Y chromosome. Eurocentric thinking seems to ignore African contribution to ancient
Hans: I’m not Eurocentric, I was born in Japan and have lived most of my life in the Middle East, LOL
Speaking of the Y chromosome - I think you are misrepresenting the data don't you?
The Y chromosome
