    Where did middle eastern people come from during evolution?

    I know for a fact they had to be on this earth before Europeans. The Middle East is basically Africa so humans didn’t start far off from places like Iraq, Syria, Palestine, etc. Middle easterners are not pale but olive skinned or brown (especially if they live in a hot place like their homeland) and they have dark... show more
    I know for a fact they had to be on this earth before Europeans. The Middle East is basically Africa so humans didn’t start far off from places like Iraq, Syria, Palestine, etc. Middle easterners are not pale but olive skinned or brown (especially if they live in a hot place like their homeland) and they have dark hair and eyes and thick eyebrows/facial hair. I’m not referring to only Arabs, I’m referring to ALL middle easterners including Mesopotamians (such as modern day Assyrians) who are native to northern Iraq AKA ancient Mesopotamia. When people with Mesopotamian ancestry take DNA tests such as 23andMe, they get no Arab results but I do know someone who is half Lebanese and half Assyrian and their DNA results showed 50% Arab from the Levant, and 50% Northwest Asian. But when he clicks on the details of the Northwest Asian part, it leads him more specifically to his “Iranian, Caucasian, and Mesopotamian ancestry” as if they mash all these areas into one, then it specifically links him to northern Iraq, in the “Nineveh Governorate” and also a very small percentage of Iranian and south-Turkish (which are also part of ancient Mesopotamia in old times). Where did all these people come from? Arabs and Mesopotamians of the Middle East. They’re different from each other, I believe Mesopotamians are older than Arabs because farming first began in Mesopotamia which started the very first civilizations. But they’re not European or Black so what is their history in evolution?

    Do you think there will be a Star Trek 4?

    Favorite answer: Yes, Star Trek 4 has been greenlighted again. They had a few problems with finances the last time they tried for this movie, and they wanted to give the stars Chris Pine, and Chris Hemsworth pay cuts, so they walked away. They seem to have gotten new financing now, and at least Chris Pine is back in the fold,... show more

They had a few problems with finances the last time they tried for this movie, and they wanted to give the stars Chris Pine, and Chris Hemsworth pay cuts, so they walked away. They seem to have gotten new financing now, and at least Chris Pine is back in the fold, don't know about Hemsworth yet. They may not go with the same story line they had before, so maybe Hemsworth won't be necessary. Hemsworth played George Kirk, James Kirk's father in the first movie, of course.

    Why do feminists claim to speak for all women? ?

    Favorite answer: Most women are not feminist.   Feminists claim to speak for all women because that’s what gives them power.    Imagine a feminist organization going to congress and saying we want X even though 2/3 of women disagree with us.   Obviously they have to claim they speak for all women.

    Are college protesters an embarrassment or are they "stunning and brave"?

    Favorite answer: Such protesters invariably are the dumbest of the dumb. They can't even articulate why they're upset.

    Can I vote in the Primaries if I turn 18 the day after the election?

    Favorite answer: No. You have to wait until the General Election to vote. Sorry, kid. But your generation restores my hope for the future of this country! At least you're not voting for Trump.
