Geographer: “Races are Different Species”

Akhil Bkshai claims the races evolved from different ancestors.

A PUBLIC CLAIM by a fellow of the prestigious Royal Geographic Society that humans did not all come from Africa — and that blacks, whites and Asians have different ancestors — has been dismissed by world experts as “dangerous,” “wrong” and “racist.” (ILLUSTRATION: Two women, two species? Women from New Guinea and Greece respectively.)

In a paper widely trumpeted and due for release in book form, Akhil Bkshai, the leader of a recent major scientific expedition supported by India’s prime minister, claims that “Negroid,” “Caucasian” and “Mongoloid” peoples are not only separate races but separate species, having evolved on different continents. Responding to the claims — developed while Bakshi led the Gondwanaland expedition from India to South Africa — Professor Lee Berger, a leading palaeoanthropologist at the University of the Witwatersrand, immediately insisted that, there were no fundamental differences between the races and that all humans had the same genetic and physical roots in Africa.

The prevalent scientific theory of modern humans — the “Out of Africa” model — is that they left Africa just 55,000 years ago and replaced the last remnants of other ancient hominids living in Europe, Asia and elsewhere.

The old biological racial distinctions of “Caucasian,” “Negroid” and “Mongoloid” have recently been abandoned by mainstream scientists — removed, for instance, from the US National Library of Medicine in 2003.

Bakshi has become a self-declared champion of a minority scientific view called “multiregionalism”, which claims that modern humans evolved from separate hominid populations. Hominids encompass all humans and the ancient family of human-like ancestors, including large-brained ancient ancestors and unsuccessful species such as Neanderthals.

However, Bakshi — who has no training as an anthropologist — has linked to this model a theory that these populations evolved according to the genetic material left behind when the prehistoric supercontinents, the northern Laurasia and the southern Gondwanaland, broke up. An influential figure in India, Bakshi is also a filmmaker and author who has led four major scientific expeditions since 1994. Bakshi admitted to the Sunday Times that “some of my points may prove to be wrong, and may be seen as politically incorrect.

He claims indigenous “Negroid” populations occur in places like Australia, India, Sri Lanka, the Philippines and the Andaman Islands not because they moved there from Africa, but because all these land masses were once part of Gondwanaland — and that all evolved separately. Whites, according to Bakshi, are from Laurasia and blacks are from Gondwanaland. He argues that, 60,000 years ago, humans could not have crossed vast oceans and deserts to reach remote places like Australia and North America, and they must therefore have evolved there.

“His is a highly confused argument which jumps enormous levels, which are quite impossible to link,” Tobias said. However, he added that the true picture of modern humanity’s precise departure from Africa was far from clear-cut.

If there is evolutiopn why can’t there be devolution process from a spirit to human. And if the Divine Creator has no beginning then He has been creating entities eversince and before we became to exist. For us humans, study the devolution process and you will at the same time learn about the existence of other entities which everyone of them had placed in our world before Adam became into flesh….

The above comment was presumably written by a Christian — the hopelessly sentimental, simple-minded, and superstitious kind of Christian who sings “Jesus loves me — this I know / For the Bible tells me so,” mindless of the fact that the Bible was written, as Ben Klassen put it, by “a passel of Jewish scribblers.”

Eei eei ooooo!

…mindless of the fact that the Bible was written, as Ben Klassen put it, by “a passel of Jewish scribblers.”

Thank you, Anthony. You made my day. Klassen may be the best for deprogramming the superstitious and gullible among us from their Semitic death cult and worship of the Jew’s tribal god. Once BK deprogrammed the “spook-chasers,” he replaced their belief in the Big Jew Book with racial loyalty.

The diference between a race and a specie…When two different species try to reproduce, 99.999999999999999999999999999%of the time it wont work. If the two species are very close genetically, it could work but their offspring will be steril. Example of two very close species that can reproduce together: Horse-Donkey. Their offspring will be call a mule. A mule is always steril. This is why we have the (human specie) (dog specie) ,(cat-specie)..etc… All human can reproduce together…all dog can reproduce together….all cat can reproduce together….and their offspring will be fertile. Blend two different species and it wont work and if it work, well, steril. (Sorry about my English)

Pytk You are correct. There is no basis for believing we are different species. Our DNA tells us so.

common misconception..species is not proof of exclusivity of reproduction.. You can see it in plants and animals..DOGS< WOLVES and Coyotes are different species yet can interbreed.

Humans with RH negative blood (A- B- O- & AB-) cannot reproduce with those who are RH positive without a rhogam shot to intervene. If we (RH negative people) get pregnant with a child who is Arh positive out bodies create antibodies which will kill off the fetus. RH negative blood originated in Caucasian people, for those of you who don’t know.

Havana, that is dangerously incorrect. We HAVE to stop drinking the “I’m Special Because Reasons” kool aid and accept that we are one species. Blood type, phenotype, genotype and all. The biggest differences between us are in our hearts. Not our cells. As far as your post: — The truth is that Rh- blood is definitely found in other populations outside of Europe. While a larger population has it there, it is not esclusive to the Iberian/Basque homonins. — Rh- female human beings can easily produce Rh+ offspring. She may bear at _least_ one Rh positive child with NO consequence. There may be more if her immune response is not sensitized and/or her system does not have a response to the Rh antigen. My wife is Rh negative (AB-), and… Read more »

Interesting theory, there are other species of animals, why not humans ?, it can sound racist but it makes sense

a lot of people here babbling about it being impossible for different species to breed, Confidence born of ignorance. Fact the Crested newt in Europe is A different species from the Marbled Newt, they very successfully cross breed. Fact the Lion and the Tiger very successfully crossbreed and so do many other species, The ferret and the mink crossbreed, The Guinea Hen and The Peafowl crossbreed, The Pheasant and the peafowl crossbreed, http://www.weirdworm.com/7-coolest-animal-cross-breeds/ it happens all the time with plants and single cell organisms. People coming here and strongly professing that it does not happen are ignorant and brainwashed by a leftist political system based on Lies and nonsense.

Yes, animals and plants can interbreed. But what good does that serve?!

How does it make life better or cultivate quality with depraved indifference to the all.

Beware of this amoral sophistry. Indiscrimination is the beginning of immorality nor a cultural prejudice.

Joe, if that is the case then chimps and aliens should be protected minorities and extended the franchise to vote, to run for offices, and to sit in judgment of humans on juries. Why not, if their offspring have these rights? Should humans discriminate against the parents?

Does anyone know what a “simian shelf” is? You will NOT find it among the typical Asians or typical Europeans.
A”simian shelf” is a bony structure found immediately behind the lower incisors for the purpose of reinforcing and extended mouth & jaw found in the indigenous native Africans. “Simian shelf” is also a distinguishing physical characteristic of the African Ape and other furry African Primates.

The fact that he hasn’t had formal training as an anthropologist should be seen as a plus, not a minus! Think Boas.
