I have a favorite breed of dog, a Bichon Friese, but all dogs have their place I think. They each have their specialties and are unique in nature. The boxer for instance is stronger, while the Poodle is smarter. If it was superior to be only smart, over strong , there would never be a need for some breeds. As long as everyone can appreciates all breeds for having their specialties, and they all know their place, I personally see no problem with differences in either animals or people. The problem comes when there is hate or intolerance instead of understanding of the differences. When people see how a breed acts and treats them accordingly, it is as wise as putting up walls in a zoo and feeding different diets to the omnivores versus the carnivores.
I prefer certain species in the zoos to others. I prefer the cat to the dog, the horse to the donkey, and I know it is a common thing to prefer certain species. I don’t find the unfavored species calling me on my “specieism” though, and I think that’s because for one thing, I don’t mock the rest-or they couldn’t tell if I do, because I don’t speak their language- and I don’t try to eliminate the other “inferior” species, I just mind my own business and let everyone prefer what they prefer!
I wonder, do horses feel it’s unfair that a cat gets to curl up on my lap, while they are stuck in hard labor jobs or sports like racing because of their strength and build? Would they demand equality if they could talk? That is more ridiculous than the women who want equal treatment to men in our society, but it is similar in concept. Woman are much different then men, and if they were actually treated as equals, they would be treated in a way that would be as hard on them as it would be hard on the cat being expected to pull a buggy!!It doesn’t work, not because they aren’t equal, but because they are different. (And different means less equality is some things sure, but that is fine, and the way it should be!)
My son just brought two different socks to me to put on him, and I was again reminded that some socks are for dress up situations, some for play and some for work. They should also be paired with their match. That makes sense in socks, as it makes sense in mammals.
All this talk of how foolish it is to equate preferring different animals, sexes, socks or groups for their different roles, without actually mocking, hating, shunning, being intolerant of or abusing the different groups or individuals, brings me to a touchy subject. . . I already touched on this in my post “Variety is the spice of life” part 1. (Which I highly recommend going back to read, if you haven’t already.)
I wanted to find out why the red heads have had such an unusual past, and what made them first honored and then hated and often killed for their differences. I had not seen anyone online equate red and blond haired people, but I was sure that they must have had a common ancestor because of their skin and eyes. . .What I found is both so interesting, that I find it hard to believe, yet so well supported, that it is foolish not to! Truth is stranger then fiction!
So cautiously, let me start with the history of a dirty little word: Aryan.“The Vedic term arya- in its earliest attestations has a meaning of “stranger”, but “stranger” in the sense of“potential guest”. The Sanskrit lexicon defines Arya as mahākula kulīnārya “being of a noble family”, sabhya “having gentle or refined behavior and demeanor”, sajjana “being well-born and respectable”, and sādhava “being virtuous, honorable, or righteous”. Arya, is a title of honor and respect given to certain people for noble behavior.
The Aryan race was a term used in the early 20th century by European racial theorists who believed strongly in the division of humanity into biologically distinct races with differing characteristics. Such writers believed that the Proto-Indo-Europeans constituted a specific race that had expanded across parts of Europe, Iran and small parts of northern India. This usage tends to merge the Sanskrit meaning of “noble” or “elevated” with the idea of distinctive behavioral and ancestral ethnicity marked by language distribution.
Nazism portrayed their interpretation of an “Aryan race” as the only race capable of, or with an interest in, creating and maintaining culture and civilizations, while other races are merely capable of conversion, or destruction of culture. [This is not a healthy view of other races IMO, but it does depend on your definition of “culture and civilization” I suppose. . .]These arguments derived from late nineteenth century racial hierarchies. Some Nazis were also influenced by Madame Blavatsky’s The Secret Doctrine (1888) where she postulates “Aryans” as the fifth of her “Root Races”, dating them to about a million years ago, tracing them to Atlantis.
Because of historical racist use of “Aryan”, and especially the use of “Aryan race” in connection with the propaganda of Nazism, the word is sometimes avoided in the West as being tainted, in the same manner as the swastika symbol. Currently, India and Iran are the only countries to use the word “Aryan” in a demographic designation.”

The term “Aryan” is used to combine numerous ancient races, probably because they seem to have a singular DNA origin . . .
Following DNA, we can see that the races such as the Annanaki, the Taklamakans, The Muvians, Phoenicians, Canaanites (Archaeologists and historians commonly refer to the Bronze Age, pre-1200 BC Levantines as Canaanites and their Iron Age descendants, particularly those living on the coast, as Phoenicians.) etc. . .as well as many previous races lost to mythology are all summed up as “Aryan” or “Caucasian”. Both of which are unfortunately steeped in a history of elitist mentality.
The history of the whites of the world has a lot of prejudice ingrained into it. And that is still seen as a preference for white skin, even strangely among the native populations of most nations of the world!
“Many cultures have historically favored lighter skin for women. In Europe, before the Industrial Revolution, pale skin was preferred and was a sign of high social status. The poorer classes worked outdoors and got darker skin from exposure to the sun, while the upper class stayed indoors and had light skin. Light skin became associated with wealth and high position.Women would even put lead-based cosmetics on their skin to artificially whiten their skin tone. Achieving a light-skinned appearance was additionally brought about in various other ways, including the use of arsenic to whiten skin, and powders. Other methods included wearing full-length clothes when outdoors, including gloves, hats and parasols.
It has historically been believed that people with dark skin were uncivilized and were to be considered inferior and subordinate to the lighter skinned invaders, which has continued to be perpetuated in modern times. There continues to be a preference for fair or lighter skin in some countries, including Latin American countries where whites are a minority. In Mexico, light skin is associated with power, as well as attractiveness. A dark-skinned person is more likely to be discriminated against in Brazil. Many actors and actresses in Latin America and Hispanic United States have European features—blond hair, blue eyes, and pale skin. A light-skinned person is considered to be more privileged and have a higher social status; a person with light skin is considered more beautiful and it means that the person has more wealth.
In India, pale skin is considered more attractive, while dark skin is associated with a lower class status, creating a massive market for skin whitening creams. Fairer skin tones also correlate, to higher-caste status in the Hindu social order . Actors and actresses in Indian cinema tend to be dramatically lighter skinned than the average Indian, and Indian cinematographers use graphics and intense lighting to achieve more desirable skin tones. Fairer skin tones are considered an asset in Indian marketing, with models skin tones regularly photoshopped to lighten tone.
Skin whitening products have remained prominent over time, often due to historical beliefs and perceptions about fair skin. In South and East Asian countries, light skin has traditionally been seen as more attractive and a preference for lighter skin remains prevalent. In ancient China and Japan, pale skin can be traced back to ancient drawings depicting women and goddesses with fair skin tones so pale skin is still seen as a sign of wealth. Thus, skin whitening cosmetic products are popular in East Asia. 4 out of 10 women surveyed in Hong Kong, Malaysia, the Philippines and South Korea used a skin-whitening cream. In Japan, the geisha was well known for their white painted faces, and the appeal of the bihaku (美白?), or “beautiful white”, ideal leads many Japanese women to avoid any form of tanning. Skin whitening is also not uncommon in Africa, and several research projects have suggested a general preference for lighter skin in the African-American community. This is so ext ream that black woman have been seen to peel their own skin from their bodies with a razor to look lighter! There is a thing called “colorism” in the black community where they judge themselves on desirability by how light their skin is! Sadly, some of the most highly educated black people are from Nigeria or Ethiopia and very dark! They get infinite hate from those hating their own skin color. It is sad really!
Significant exceptions to a preference for lighter skin started to appear in Western culture mid-20th century. Though sun-tanned skin used to be associated with the sun-exposed manual labor of the dark lower-class, the associations became dramatically reversed during this time. It could be that whites didn’t want to stand out so much and were sick of being called names by the insecure and jealous dark people, or they just realized the benefits of getting out in the sun more. A tan, in white people at least, became the sign for those wealthy enough to have leisure time on the beach.
This concern for the perception of wealth and “beauty” is not surprisingly mostly found in the shallow woman. It would be very unusual to see a man in make up, or stressing over creams everyday. . .it’s just not in their make-up:)
The more we know of archaeology and the other sciences and DNA, the more we can piece things together that explain not only the origins of the Aryan race, but even all of humanity! (And it is exciting stuff!)
There is no denial that a quest for equality of races in this country has brought about much controversy. Some are proud of their heritage as being unique -but different- though. Some of these differences are seen in the school system, which seeks to unite the different cultures and expects them all to act alike. Studies of blacks in school for instance show that they actually believe that being studious was betraying their racial identity by ”acting white” .
In light of political correctness I want to interject here, that no one really wants to speak about genetics, or racial differences, for fear of being ostracized or unfairly deemed “racist”! Truth is not racist though. Racism involves hatred and abuse of someone not like yourself. In fact, acknowledging a difference, whether it be in genders, animals or people is seeking to understand and a sign of growing up. Trust a child to notice and comment on all the different looking things around them innocently.
As my last post ( Variety is the spice of life part 1) showed, there are many variations in humans, and the genetics alone can lead us to some interesting conclusions. . .but here’s were it get’s even more weird!
Did you know that two hundred and fifty of our genes are not shared with any other life form on earth?!
For the past few decades molecular biologists have been examining and mapping the human DNA. It turns out that ninety seven percent of our DNA is “Junk DNA” with no known use or function at this time!
Our so called “Junk DNA” is a hidden and dormant upgrade of our basic code though; it’s a clever self-organizing, auto executing, auto developing and auto correction software! In other words the DNA that scientists have been calling “Junk DNA” is really “Divine DNA” some would say.
“The research team isn’t clear on why supposed junk genes appear to be serving a purpose, but intend to continue their research to see if they can find answers to this new puzzle in genetic research.” “Curiously, the largest differences between major species groups appear to be the amount of ‘junk’ DNA, rather than the number of genes.”
If we have a “genetic programmer”, he purposely disabled us and only left us to exist on three percent of our own DNA! (Like a scratched CD, stuck on one song, instead of playing the whole CD, humans are stuck in a partial reality.) Your DNA can be at least partly unlocked though methods of raising your vibrations though.
If that wasn’t weird enough, 85% of all human beings share most of their working genes with a monkey! The monkey gene is called the rhesus factor (or RH factor) because it can be traced back to the rhesus monkey. If you test negative for the monkey gene (are RH-), then you are in a small minority of the worlds population! Only 5% of the population completely lacks this monkey gene.
Europeans are the most likely to have RH negative, but there is dramatic worldwide variation on who has it though. Of the African Americans, about 90-95 percent are not Rh-. Of Asians, 98 to 99 percent are not RH-. As well, most Chinese have no RH negative. And yet, of those with a Basques descent, in Europe, almost 100% are Rh-negative.
The problems of RH- is, as most know, an incompatibility with blood types, causing a problem with their reproduction, and in their babies called haemolytic disease. Haemolytic disease is the allergic reaction that occurs when an Rh negative mother is carrying a Rh positive child. Her blood builds up antibodies to destroy an ALIEN substance (the same way it would a virus), thereby destroying the infant. Rh blood type incompatibility is the leading cause of potentially fatal blood related problems of the newborn in America.
Why does this infant’s haemolytic disease occur in humans if all humans are the same species? Why would a mother’s body reject her own offspring? Nowhere else in nature does this occur naturally.
Although, this problem in reproduction has been resolved with the roGAM shot and with the testing of the RH blood types, basically, the problem has been smoothed over without any explanations as to what is going on with these two blood types. The Rh-Negatives Factor is of “Unknown Origin” they say, but we can trace it back to Europe, about 25,000-35,000 years ago.
While some consider Rh- to be a mutation, it might actually be the other way around. After studies were done to see if there are any differences between RH negative and RH positive people, a lot of both good and bad differences were found though. The differences ascribed to them are hard to believe. RH negative people are said to have:
- a higher than average IQ
- prefer a lower temperature, and tend to be too hot compared to others of a similar build.
- have increased sensitivity to sunlight, night blindness, and generally poor eyesight, or has evolved to make up for that with large eyes
- increased sensitivity to sounds
- can’t receive blood transfusions from RH positive donors, yet they can give them.
- some even have a extra vertebrae (a tailbone) or an extra rib.
- have large heads
- have colorblindness. (Two recessive genes are required for the expression of colorblindness in female, whereas only one gene gains expression in male.)
- lower than normal blood pressure
- a low pule rate
- higher mental analytical abilities
- have more true allergies and digestive issues
- a sense of not belonging
- often have a widow’s peak
- often can roll and/or fold back the tongue
- para-normal occurrences happen to them
- truth seekers
- sensitive and empathetic. (Ironically, even those with Aspergers syndrome have a greater response then usual to other’s physical stress, but not empathetic to perceived emotional stress of others.)
- empathetic illnesses, often deemed as being a “hypochondriac”
- hemophilia runs in the family
- deep concern for the fate of mankind
- a sense of a ‘mission’ in life
- high sensitivity to EM and ELF Fields (you affect electronics and mechanical things like watches.)
- doesn’t like to drink, and/or “can’t hold your liquor”.
- higher negative-ion shielding ability to your cells (repelling positive “charged” virus/bacteria/dust/ microbes/ pet dander around the body).
- Psychic dreams and/or abilities
What if you have a lot of these “symptoms” or tendencies, but aren’t RH-? One major misunderstanding made by most people, is that all Rh positive people are all positive. However, there are many people in the population who are called Rh+ but who are really Rh+/-. These people possess two different forms of a particular gene, one inherited from each parent. A person who is heterozygous or a hybrid (Rh+/-) is called a gene carrier because it’s recessive. Just as our blood type is NOT inherited from just our mother or our father, we each receive one Rh factor from EACH parent and we all end up with two. A person who is Type O- is really Type OO-/-, as they received one type (O) and one (Rh-) Factor from each parent. In North America, about 15% of whites have a dominant RH negative gene, while all the rest have a recessive RH negative gene.
Rh- blacks and non whites are not truly rh- and are a weak D+(rh+) and partial D+ antigen that doesn’t show up on general blood testing. Unfortunately, we do not usually know our recessive traits unless closely investigated by familial history or extensive testing is performed.
Scientist tell us that all Rh- blood stems from O- blood originally. This I will get into next.
