>>7848730 So what if an ehtnic circle got constant gene contribution from a neighbouring third party effecting the genetic make up over time, while not contributing to the lmaguage, culture... ethnic self identification?
>>7848752 Because ethnicities are a unreliable heuristic, they are not a concept with rigorous or scientific boundaries. Like I said. i.e. someone could share the same genotype as a Turk, but he could look Greek and act Greek.
In the old concept of ethnicity, this person would be considered Greek when genetics say not really.
>>7848754 >If you're trying to link cultural aspects to genetics I doubt you're gonna have any luck. Culture is inherently non-genetic. I understand this and I'm thankful for your input. Though I'm still searching for how to break this down to someone who trying to proof to me that a specific culture isn't of its own since it doesn't own the required genetics. >Also, I find it unlikely that neighboring groups would have constant high frequency genetic mixing without having cultural exchanges as well. Let's take a current day example: In the USA the origin of genetic influx stands in no noteworthy proportionality to a possible linguistic contribution.
>>7848774 How do you subscribe a genetic appearance to an ehtnicity? Can an ehtnicity claim copy rights for a specific marker?
>>7848787 I'm not really sure what you're trying to at here. Culture is learned, not encoded genetically. If you take a Japanese baby and drop it in the middle of Russia, it will learn to be Russia. And if you take any baby and raise them in a box they probably won't be culturally anything.
The closest thing you can get to genetics effecting a person's cultural identity is people treating you one way because of how you look.
>Can an ehtnicity claim copy rights for a specific marker?
It's pretty much irrelevant. Genetic markers are used as markers because they're not coding for anything, and thus not subject to any meaningful natural selection. They can tell you where your ancestral origins probably are, which is ultimately meaningless culturally, unless you have no other personal identity.
Imagine this hypothetical: You have a Chinese man with a strong Chinese identity. Then this man gets a genetics test and finds out he's genetically more Mongolian than Chinese (probably because Genghis Khan went around and had a thousand rape babies).
Should this man move to Mongolia and start learning throat singing and horsemanship and archery? It's an absurdity with no biological answer.
