ATTN: RH negs - Genetic Research on The Ancient Basques.... Yields Unexpected Results

*** - fundraising - Well, they did it again, gutted my fundraising appeal over night. It was up when I went to bed. So we are very much behind the gun now as they intended. Our balance needed to meet the deficit is still $350.00 and we still have 10 days to go, so if you benefit in anyway from our work, AND can afford it, please Donate off to the right of the blog at the pay pal button. As I said this fundraising is getting harder and harder to do, due to the harassment by the powers that be. 

I believe we have the best readers in the world, as they are very much supportive of this blog both in donations and in contributions on subject matter and pointing out rabbit holes that we can go down. For that, we are eternally grateful and wish you many blessings and joys in your life.  We "WILL" prevail. 

Vatic Note:  This one is fascinating because Edgar Cayce has been proven to be correct in most of his readings, and that surprised me to find that out.  Here is another one that has been proven to be true as well.  This one is even more important since its an ongoing fountain of discovery about the Basque.  This is tied into the Atlanteans and what happened to them after the major destruction event.  Fascinating read indeed.

Cayce's Atlantean History is Viable...

The Cayce readings relate that a migration of Atlanteans fled the final destruction of their last remaining island just prior to 10,000 B.C.

Cayce specifically stated that many of these survivors went to North America, Egypt, and the Pyrenees Mountains while a few went to the area of the Gobi. The Basques, who have long inhabited the area of the Pyrenees, are an enigma to researchers.


Archaeologists have consistently speculated that the Basques moved into the region from southwestern Europe between 13,000 B.C. and 8,000 B.C. If this theory is correct, then it would be expected that both modern and ancient Basque DNA would be related to a specific DNA type originating in southwest Europe (which researchers term haplogroup V).

In order to test this hypothesis, four genetic studies were performed on subjects from the modern Basque population during the 1990s. Utilizing mitochondrial DNA analysis (mtDNA) (Mitochondrial DNA Analysis - Modern Genetic Research Confirms Cayce's Story), geneticists found that the expected type of mtDNA (haplogroup V) occurred in 3.3 to 20 percent of modern Basques.

In an effort to measure the mtDNA types present in the ancient Basques, a group of Spanish geneticists obtained dental samples from 121 individuals buried in four separate prehistoric Basque sites. In addition, bone samples (femurs) were used to confirm results. The burial sites were carbon dated from 3,000 B.C. to 1,400 B.C.

The surprising results showed that not a single individual in the ancient group had the expected haplogroup V.

The most frequent haplogroup found was H (at 37.2 percent). This type (H) is the most common mtDNA found in all modern-day European populations. In addition, 9.1 percent of the ancient Basque mtDNA was haplogroup X.


With the focus of their research on testing the hypothesis that haplogroup V moved into the Basque region in the years 13,000 B.C. to 8,000 B.C., the geneticists were forced to conclude that Haplogroup V entered the area after 3,000 B.C. They suggested that, prior to 9,000 B.C., various hunter-gatherer groups occupied the region. These groups included people from the X haplogroup.

Extremely significant in light of the Cayce readings is the presence of haplogroup X in ancient Basque mtDNA. While popular press reports have often termed haplogroup X as "Caucasoid," this speculative idea has been generally discredited by researchers. In 1997, haplogroup X was discovered in about 3 percent of modern Native Americans and in ancient North American remains as well.


The X type is frequently found in modern descendants of the Iroquois and in ancient burials in Iroquois' lands. The X haplogroup has also been identified in the Middle East and, in 2001, it was found in a tribe living in the Altaic Mountains of the Gobi. All of these of course are areas where Cayce specifically stated Atlantean survivors fled in 10,000 B.C.


The Editors of Ancient Mysteries, along with John Van Auken, have hypothesized that the X haplogroup may be the genetic link to the ancient Atlanteans.
