Europe is said to be the most genetically homogenous continent (and Africa the most heterogenous).

There seems to be two races in Europe: the Indigenous European and the Indo-European.

The Indigenous European is what people in southern Europe, as far north as southern England and Germany are. Celts would also be primarily Indigenous European. The Basque language is the only indigenous language of Europe that still exists.

Indigenous Europeans are non-Atlantean in origin, have pale to tan skin, brown to black hair, and brown eyes.

The Indo-Europeans are descendants of the Atlantean Aryans. These are the people the Nazis wanted to rule the world. Their descendants are most common in Scandinavia and northern Germany, though some of them live as far away from Europe as India.

They are blonde haired, blue eyed and pale to light skinned. Most modern European languages originate from their original language.

What about Welsh? It is my understanding that Welsh and Basque share many similarities, also what we understand to be 'welsh' is actually the language that was spoken in England until the roman conquest, at which point the natives took refuge in the mountains and forests of Wales, which the Romans found difficult to traverse, leaving England to the romans and later the Angles, Saxons, Jutes etc.

True. The Celtic languages seem to be a mix of Indigenous and Indo-European. Celts have always been a minority group.

Celts were indo-european people. As where the greeks and romans and virtually everyone that settled in europe.
The finnish seem to be descendent from the people that came to europe before the indo-europeans.
Basque is the only pre-indo-european language remaining in western europe.
Origins for basque are obscure as no one can agree if it is descended from the iberians that live there before the celts arrived or if it was introduced at a later date by other invaders.
Celts where not always a minority, in fact up to circa 350bc most of europe was celt, with various celtic peoples all the way from iberian peninsula and british islands all the way to present day romania.
Anyway, both groups, the indigenous pre-indo-european and indo-europeans are obviously alien to europe as we all came from outside europe anyway.

Germanics and celts are both of different stock, but again, both of them are of indo-european origin, with a lot of mixing up due to other invasions by nomadic people.

Anyway, in every contry in europe you can find at one stage or another various influences. Take the case of the iberian peninsula, where you start with the various iberian tribes who were conquered by the celts, and meanwhile you have phoenician and greek influences mixed in. With the conquest by rome, you then get influences by all the peoples of the empire (kinda like a ancient age EU), empire falls, you then have the visigoths and the sweboz, then you have the arabic invasion and the subsequent influence by northern europeans when they came to reconquer the place. And to a bigger or lesser extent that's the history of the rest of europe as well. One invasion after another.

Basically there are no pure europeans, or none can claim to be more european or less european. We are all a big melting pot.

"indigenous" of course is a relative term, as all human beings originate from Africa in some way or another.

Why us Europeans are aliens.
We are not from Africa.
That's crazy talk.

No I am joking!


Fascinating discussion.

Ahh. I remember a very similar discussion started by you Donnie, though it was more bold in its assertions.

My question is:Are we going to hear of the Lyran seeding fleet today?

I just got through finding out how the American Indians came from
Libya and others from the Old World before Columbus and this
Atlantis pops up again.

There was a human mankind DNA trace shown on Public Broadcasting
Channels so how could the descendant of Atlantis be missed.
