Origin of Blue Eyes

Blue Eyes Originated 10,000 Years Ago in the Black Sea Region
by Susanne Posel
A team of researchers from Copenhagen Universityhave located a single mutation that causes the mysterious phenomenon of blue eyes. And all blue eyed people are genetically related to a person who lived in the Black Sea region sometime between 6 – 10,000 years ago.
The research was published in the Journal of Human Genetics. A mutation in a gene called OCA2 came into being nearly 8,000 years ago. It can be definitively traced back to an ancestor from the Black Sea.
Dr. Hans Eiberg claims that before this time, every human being had brown eyes. “A genetic mutation affecting the OCA2 gene in our chromosomes resulted in the creation of a ‘switch,’ which literally ‘turned off’ the ability to produce brown eyes,” Eiberg said.

When blue-eyed peoples from Jordan, Denmark and Turkey were examined, their genetic difference was traced back to the maternal lineage according to Eiberg’s team.
The brown melanin pigment is still dominant. However, following the last Ice Age, Europeans developed this rare mutation that differentiated them from the rest of the human race.
Ninety-five percent of Europeans in Scandinavian countries have blue eyes. They are also found to have a greater range of hair and skin color.
Comparatively, Europe has a wider variety of hair color and skin pigment than is found in any other continent in the world. These mutations are recent as Europe was colonized only a few thousand years ago, say mainstream scientists.
Through interbreeding, the brunette with blue eyes was evidenced about 25,000 years ago. Researchers attribute this to ancient interbreeding with Neanderthals.
Although no Neanderthal DNA has been found in modern Homo sapiens-sapiens [as associated with blue eye genes], mainstream science clings to this theory as fact because they haven’t come up with anything better.
“The question really is, ‘Why did we go from having nobody on Earth with blue eyes 10,000 years ago to having 20 or 40 percent of Europeans having blue eyes now?” John Hawks of the University of Wisconsin-Madison said. “This gene does something good for people. It makes them have more kids.”[Which is an adaptive advantage in the post-catastrophe wold after the end of the Ice Ages?]

[I just noticed something that they missed. The Blue-eyed gene developed where the ancestors of the Indo-Europeans came from (The European half anyway) and they dispersed from the Black Sea Area at the time of the BLACK SEA FLOOD!-DD]

  1. Here is my pick Mr Dale.
    Rivers bearing the name Danu - Danube, Dnieper and Don drain into the Black sea. These names came from Druids -> Druvids -> Druhyus who were forced to leave India over the fight for ancestral kingdom on the banks of saraswati. That was 5 generations before Rama whose period can be dated at 5000+ BC as per astronomical clues of Ramayana.

    It was a terrible war that Druhyu fought with his siblings. Perhaps an after-effect of the war-trauma led to the mutation?


    There is a genetic study linking North Africa to Scandinavia with people migrating between these two. Black sea is a transit location on the way. I would connect Scandinavia to Skanda (popular Hindu God called as Skanda or Muruga or Karthikeya) who married a girl from the far Northern latitudes as per Hindu texts. He was the first king to have presided over the old Tamil sangam Assembly when it was inaugurated.

    Skanda is reddish in complexion and is known for fearlessness and military prowess. The etymology of Scandinavia from Scany - Scania - Skaon by Pliny the Elder meaning damage, hurting or danger fit well with Skanda. The pre-christian religion of Sami and Saivu in that region also fit with him, as Skanda is the son of Shiva!

    By all this I mean to show how Indo- European connection could have happened in these regions. The period of Skanda is before 10,000 yrs and his location was close to Australia but moved upto South india and Srilanka. All these regions bear clues to his cult.
