The Eve Gene

Black Women Are Literally The Blueprint For Humanity! The theory of gene coalescence suggests that, throughout the last 60 million years, human ancestral populations had an effective size of 100,000 individuals or greater. Molecular evolution data favor the African origin of modern humans and all traits of humanity can be found in the mitochondrial DNA of Black Women!

Humanity was genetically divided for as much as 100,000 years, according to new findings. Climate change, reduction in populations and harsh conditions may have caused and maintained the separation. And if such a situation occurs again on the planet it will be the Black Woman who holds the key to human survival!


Researchers believe that about 60,000 years ago, approximately 40 thousand years before Caucasians existed modern humans started their epic journeys to populate the world. This time period has been the primary focus of anthropological genetic research. However, relatively little is known about the demographic history of our species over the previous 140,000 years in Africa. The current study returns the focus to Africa and thereby refines the understanding of early modern Homo sapiens history.


The team’s research was based on a survey of African mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) and is the most extensive survey of its kind. It included over 600 complete mtDNA genomes from indigenous populations across the continent. How Old Was “Mitochondrial Eve”? MtDNA, inherited down the maternal line, was used in 1987 to discover the age of the famous “Mitochondrial Eve,” the most recent common female ancestor of everyone alive today. This work has since been extended to show unequivocally that “Mitochondrial Eve” was an African woman who lived sometime during the past 200,000 years.


Recent data suggests that Eastern Africa went through a series of massive droughts between 90,000 and 135,000 years ago. Dr. Spencer Wells, director of the Genographic Project and Explorer-in-Residence at the National Geographic Society, said, "This new study illustrates the extraordinary power of genetics to reveal insights into some of the key events in our species' history. Tiny bands of early humans, forced apart by harsh environmental conditions, coming back from the brink to reunite and populate the world. Truly an epic drama, written in our DNA."


It took the climate 20,000 to 50,000 years to stabilize after the rise in global temperatures of five to eight degrees Celsius 56 million years ago. Climate change today is causing temperatures to rise and is also increasing the likelihood of storms, heavy rain, and flooding -- the recent flood disaster in the Ahr valley in Germany is just one such example. What we need to ask ourselves in this connection is how quickly the climate can recover from the warming caused by an increase in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. All humans, regardless of race (which is a social construct) can trace their ancestry to a Black woman from southern Africa who walked this earth over 100,000 years ago. Today, scientist call her Mitochondrial Eve and her DNA can be found in Black women today.


Brenna Henn, a geneticist at the University of California, found that everyone alive today can trace their ancestry to at least two distinct populations that were present in Africa dating back about a million years. The term Caucasian as a racial category was introduced in the 1780s by members of the Göttingen School of History – notably Christoph Meiners in 1785 and Johann Friedrich Blumenbach in 1795—it had originally referred in a narrow sense to the native inhabitants of the Caucasus region. Cau·​ca·​sian ˈkȯ-ˈkā-zhən, -ˈkazh-ən. : of or relating to a group of people having European ancestry, classified according to physical traits (as light skin pigmentation), and formerly considered to constitute a race of humans. This information is generally reported as a percentage that suggests how much DNA an individual has inherited from these ancestors. The percentage of Neanderthal DNA in modern humans is zero or close to zero in people from African populations, and is about 1 to 4 percent in people of European or Asian background.


Scientists hypothesize that this is because Caucasians came from the surviving offspring of approximately 12 births of females sired by African Hhomo Sapien males and female Neanderthal and Denisovan females. The mitochondrial DNA in Black women alone suggests that no births between homo sapien females and Archaic human males lived to term and fetuses most likely died in vivo. Neanderthals & modern humans both evolved from a common ancestor. Likely H. Heidelbergensis, though there’s still a bit of arguing going on there. The common ancestor species spread out from Africa something like 500,000 years ago. Some of them migrated to Europe, others stayed back in Africa.


The population that was trapped in Europe during the ice age evolved into Neanderthals, at least by about 430,000 years ago, maybe a bit earlier. Meanwhile, back in Africa populations continued to evolve and grow in number, resulting in modern humans, a bit before 250,000 years ago. These dates are a educated guesses due to exactly where you draw the line in the transition from one species to the next.


There seems to have been some early attempts of modern humans trying to get out of Africa as far back as 130,000 years ago. Those early migrations don’t seem to have been successful. But by about 70,000 a much more significant migration of modern humans began to spread out from Africa, and populate the planet. Modern humans spread out through Asia & Europe, and interacted with & interbred with the other hominins (Neanderthals, Denisovans, etc.). Though, based on the amount of genetic admixture, of archaic human DNA this interbreeding seems to have been infrequent, or most likely not always successful.
