Banned from Anthrogenica, Censored by Eurogenes, Laugh at Eupedia

Several posters at Davidski's Eurogenes blog have noted that they've been banned from Anthrogenica for challenging the Kool-Aid drinking orthodoxy that infects that website.

The pattern almost always goes as follows.  A regular Anthrogenica poster says something like, "Isn't the Kool-Aid grand?"  A newcomer says, "I don't want to drink your Kool-Aid."  The Anthrogenica regular says, "I'm right, you idiot."  And then the newcomer says, "You're the idiot" -- and yep, you guessed it, only one of them gets banned.

It's gotten so bad that some of the best citizen-scientist minds, and almost all contrarian voices, are gone from that website.  In the old days, the orthodoxy sought to excommunicate Galileo from the Catholic faith.  Now they excommunicate posters from the major discussion websites.  No dissent allowed.

With Dienekes inactive, Eurogenes is where many go for discussion.  But Davidski has been very heavy with the censorship button there too.  Post something he disagrees with?  He removes your comment.  It's really sad.

I myself have tried to post my most recent thread, about applying simple demographics to his "Conquest and Warfare" fantasies, and he always removes my comments asap.

What does that leave?  Eupedia?  Maciamo is a reductio ad absurdem idiot, who also doesn't hesitate to ban people with any contrarian viewpoint.

So, this is it.  This is your thread.  This thread (and this website) is for anyone Banned From Anthrogenica, or Censored by Eurogenes.

Post away.  You will not be censored here.

  1. Yes..i have experienced the same... it is quite concerning the the skill of debate is non existent when discussing theoretical ideas in the origins of various genetic groups. It is very clear that their is a bias with a cline to justify beliefs as opposed to being open minded to work with the evidence. Keep up the good work.

  2. eupedia is defined by just one person "angela" who seems to live in her own world and doesnt come across as someone healthy, in fact sickening in every dimension.

  3. ^true that
    the "angela" is really mentally unstable and on eupedia 24/7 (i suspect vaginel hygenes as the reason). her behaviour on there is however only tolerated as a sort of comic relief which in its deranged nature (a deranged woman losing it completely) very entertaining.

  4. Anthrogenica has been like that for a while now. In fact most of these DNA forums are full of bullies, amateurs who quote papers as if they really understand, and the what not. The best bet is to just stick with ftdna & ancestry forums. At least then the people are useful.

    1. I forgot to include bullies, amateurs, social rejects looking for a pat on the back and people who are mentally deranged. Really you can't get a serious discussion on anthrogenica & if you know more than the "veterans" but are new they typically ignore you unless you post repeating or quote one of them & then the shit hits the fan.

  5. Ah finally someone who speaks the truth. Anthrogenica is full of pathetic bullies. I have personally, & heard from others, stories of belittling ignorant "experts" who think as they may have read a book or two they know more than someone from an ethnicity. Only an idiot thinks that.

  7. Anthrogenica is a forum where one must repeat what everyone else says & there is no room for originality, freedom of expression, etc.

    There is one member, MitchellSince1893 who desperately wants to be related to nobility/aristocracy - his basis for belief is a trollop (slut/easy) great-grandmother who worked/lived in a poor quarters, gave birth in the poor house (so she *was* dirt poor) & had a high probability of a pauper's burial had she not moved to the US - was kind enough to coin the general consensus of Anthrogenica just recently (if they don't delete it, it's a post entitled *For you old timers who can't resist taking the bait* in the Lounge section).

    Generally the census of Anthrogenica has been, and has been for years, is genetics trumps everything. Culture, history, etc. This MitchellSince1893 refers to people who won't accept the Anthrogenica ideology - genetics over everything - condescendingly & comments that they are "a lost cause" in his option. Despite the fact that there is a lot of genetic overlap between countries so, for some, genetics alone is completely & utterly worthless.

    In the end, and which many of the "old timers" agree with like good brainwashed sheep anyone who thinks outside of their little circuit is a "troll". He then continued to ask why do old posters with "large number of posts" continue to engage these trolls with their heretical ideology.

    It's the general theme of the forum - hence why the posters with "large numbers of posts" continually attack anyone with an outside ideology even if the person is from the ethnicity in question & should have an idea of the culture, history, etc. beyond book introductions & wikipedia pages.

  8. ***should have an idea of the culture, history, etc. beyond book introductions & wikipedia pages. This means they'd have a better understanding of the genetics than some numbskull who thinks genetic samples taken at grand or maybe great-grandparent level is an accurate representation of a given region and/or culture.

  9. Anthrogenica's a dump. Full of poorly educated people pretending to be educated - their understanding of statistics alone is shit for some of them claiming to have degrees that would involve statistic courses - people who should count themselves lucky their grandmothers knew who grandpa was. Most can't follow their lineage if you gave them a map, a compass & held their hands too.

    And the others know pretty much nothing of history.

    What's really annoying though is the ones desperate to be something they aren't.

    There's one - Gwydion - in particular who stands out of this. Because he has no culture (no offense but what *is* Anglo-American culture? Cause seriously compared to other ethnic groups in America Anglo-American isn't much) he is extremely desperate to make himself distinctive. He wants to be Celtic. So extremely desperate that he takes a basic haplogroup & says he's Celtic. Thing is, to make any legitimate claim, he's got to do further testing.

    The irony is is he's admitted to caring very little for modern Celtic populations and only cares for ancient ones. Likely because he knows a real Scotsman (his claimed ancestry) would laugh in his face if he tried calling himself Scottish. Culturally, after all, he's about as Scottish as an African is.

    And that's something such Americans don't realize. Parts don't make a whole. Part Irish, part German, etc. doesn't make them Irish or German.

  10. Anthrogenica is full of bullies, make believe researchers, self-claimed shoddy family genealogists, and people who have likely never read a history book. For example, they are recently having a decision about Celtic vs Germanic PCA involving ancient DNA.

    Some goofball, of the never read a history book category, has commented that there were likely no Germanic Roman Gladiators. He, due to his high number of posts - that's how anthrogenica works, large post numbers & older members get a pat on the back and praise while new members are often stamped down unless they as poorly educated as the others - got a number of thumbs up. It's too bad that a number of historical recounts & books mention how the Romans encountered the Franks and other Germanic tribes. Now seeing as the Romans turned their own [upstart, rebellious, troublesome] brethren into gladiators it doesn't take a genius to realize that there had to have been captured Germanic Frankish & other peoples who likewise became gladiators.
