King Tut's DNA is Western European

Despite the refusal of the Secretary General of the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities, Zahi Hawass, to release any DNA results which might indicate the racial ancestry of Pharaoh Tutankhamen, the leaked results reveal that King Tut’s DNA is a 99.6 percent match with Western European Y chromosomes.

The DNA test results were inadvertently revealed on a Discovery Channel TV documentary filmed with Hawass’s permission — but it seems as if the Egyptian failed to spot the giveaway part of the documentary which revealed the test results.

Hawass previously announced that he would not release the racial DNA results of Egyptian mummies — obviously because he feared the consequences of such a revelation.

On the Discovery Channel broadcast, which can be seen on the Discovery Channel website here, or if they pull it, on YouTube here, at approximately 1:53 into the video, the camera pans over a printout of DNA test results from King Tut.

Firstly, here is a brief explanation of the results visible in the video. It is a list of what is called Short Tandem Repeats (STRs).

STRs are repeated DNA sequences which are “short repeat units” whose characteristics make them especially suitable for human identification.

These STR values for 17 markers visible in the video are as follows:
DYS 19 – 14 (? not clear)
DYS 385a – 11
DYS 385b – 14
DYS 389i – 13
DYS 389ii – 30
DYS 390 – 24
DYS 391 – 11
DYS 392 – 13
DYS 393 – 13
DYS 437 – 14 (? not clear)
DYS 438 – 12
DYS 439 – 10
DYS 448 – 19
DYS 456 – 15
DYS 458 – 16
DYS 635 – 23
YGATAH4 – 11

What does this mean? Fortunately, a genius by the name of Whit Athey provides the key to this list. Mr Athey is a retired physicist whose working career was primarily at the Food and Drug Administration where he was chief of one of the medical device labs.

Mr Athey received his doctorate in physics and biochemistry at Tufts University, and undergraduate (engineering) and masters (math) degrees at Auburn University. For several years during the 1980s, he also taught one course each semester in the electrical engineering department of the University of Maryland. Besides his interest in genetic genealogy, he is an amateur astronomer and has his own small observatory near his home in Brookeville, MD.

He also runs a very valuable website called the “Haplogroup Predictor” which allows users to input STR data and generate the haplogroup which marks those STR data.

For those who want to know what a haplogroup is, here is a “simple” definition: a haplogroup is a group of similar haplotypes that share a common ancestor with a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) mutation.

Still none the wiser? Damn these scientists.

Ok, let’s try it this way: a haplotype is a combination of multiple specific locations of a gene or DNA sequence on a chromosome.

Haplogroups are assigned letters of the alphabet, and refinements consist of additional number and letter combinations, for example R1b or R1b1. Y-chromosome and mitochondrial DNA haplogroups have different haplogroup designations. In essence, haplogroups give an inisight into ancestral origins dating back thousands of years.

By entering all the STR data inadvertently shown on the Discovery video, a 99.6 percent fit with the R1b haplogroup is revealed.

The significance is, of course, that R1b is the most common Y-chromosome haplogroup in Europe reaching its highest concentrations in Ireland, Scotland, western England and the European Atlantic seaboard — in other words, European through and through.

So much for the Afro-centrists and others who have derided the very obvious northwestern European appearance of a large number of the pharonic mummies. It seems like March of the Titans was right after all…

    We must first look at why its even important to white folks – the racial constitution of an ancient pharaoh. Are they equally as “concerned” if Winston Churchill, Napoleon or Michelangelo were really white? Obviously not. Ever notice how they work day and night – year after year – to literally erase black people from history?

    • Meh, I think its a 50/50 thing. “Some” White people were probably excited by this because the Egyptians were an advanced race. Same as “some” Black people who always touted Egyptians were black and were mad to hear this. I honestly just came across this by accident and could care less. To my recollection and belief the advances Egyptians were actually of a more middle eastern decent. The royalty anyway BUT just like the Romans anyone could “become Egyptian”. They were a civilization based on trade and slavery. This would have to mean inter mingling and even the thought of some freed slaves, like the Romans would do, becoming citizens.
      Im white by the way, Italian. I could give a schit what color the Egyptians were. I was honestly more insulted when they made the Human Torch black lol.

      Firstly – being Black definitely disqualifies you as a European, just check on your bootleaps and Simian Jaw. Even if you were born in Europe, you are still African, and that goes on your offsprings too. Logic is simple – If you were born in the stable, it doesn’t mean you are now horse.

      Probably there were some Blacks brought by Ancient Romans (as slaves) in the Europe, however, your eventual presence here has same weight as if some other African species might have been accidentally transferred by merchant ships, like rats for instance, or some contagious diseases.

    It what has been back more than a few times, fraudulentt statues were created to make people look non-black so the truth would not be known about African history.

    The scientist from the Discovery Channel episode stated that not enough information was shown in order for which Whit Anthey to create the results.

    There is only one reason why Zahi Hawass will not release the results.

      If Whites had stolen America, then America (STATES) should have existed prior of Columbus arrival, which she didn’t. Whites colonized vast open territories of the continent that Whites named America, and Whites CREATED her, from nothing actually. Indians even had no clue where exactly on the planet they existed. Importing Blacks in the US as agricultural tools had been epic mistake, which consequently haunt us all on the both sides of the Atlantic. Latest MALIGNANT importation of Black African and Muslim “migrants”, under the control of (((PTBs))), will probably end in a conflict, where WW1 and WW2 might look as skirmishes.

      How did whites steal ”America?” We came here as settlers starting with the Vikings and even before. The so called American Indians settled as well! They came across the Bering Straits and moved south , coming mostly from Mongolia and Siberia. Go to Alaska ( I have lived there) and look at the Aleuts and Inuit natives. They frequently cross back and forth into Russian and Mongolia to visit their relatives who live in these regions. The natives of both North and South America are descendants of migrant people from many places, so to say whites stole ”America” is nothing but ignorant racism by bitter people who cannot by science and history prove their comic book beliefs.

    It’s interesting how this subject attracts such massive attention, particularly if compared with other themes on EUTimes. Off course, overly sensitive Non-Whites are butthurt side here.

    In the era of Political Correctness, invented and hysterically maintained by Left Liberal retardance, it’s quite understandable that science too balked under such heavy pressure. Lefty’s pets – Negroids, Latinos and Muslims became extra-protected species, and off course, they milk it. Who wouldn’t grab free God’s gift?

    In this context Blacks are specialty, as they are the only Race that never created anything, had no literature and no written history, and were literally dragged out of Stone Age by European colonizers. It was huge mistake, they should have been left as they were, and they would definitely be happier on their own, perfectly suited for the way of life they were accommodated thru their whole existence. Europeans poked with stick where they shouldn’t, which transformed Blacks in the mostly angry, hateful, unhappy sort, and too many utterly useless, that now has to be supported and even fed. Evidence – Huge unrestrained influx of millions from Africa to Europe.

    As it happens with over-coddled children, they soon become spoiled brats, and exactly that happened with Blacks. For African Blacks (NOT ALL of course), support became their right, and now they DEMAND more. Check on the whining of Black “immigrants” that were brought to Italy for instance, literally from the Libyan shores – “We want this and that and money, and nobody cares about us … and bla bla bla in this manner … and angry rioting of course, if DEMANDS are overheard.

    History, artificially created history is another DEMAND. They FEEL entitled to the history of ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome and even Europe. Here comes PC “science” – Origin of all Races is Africa, but only Blacks somehow miraculously retained bootleaps and Simian Jaws, and already legendary charcoal Black skin. It obviously wasn’t enough, hence – DNA bullshit happened. However, we Humans, all Races, still have 95% common DNA with rats for instance … and 98% with monkeys. Now comes the ESSENTIAL, which Race shares Simian Jaws with primates, and leaps too … just asking.

    Some people are prone of talking about supremacy and superiority … I don’t care about this, it’s irrelevant, as every Race had been created by Mother Nature, by reasons known to her only and she granted designated space to every Race. In this context colonization could be understood as braking of Natural Laws and I have to admit, it’s debatable, although it’s natural too. We know that those on the top of the food chain … well, everybody knows what it means.

    From both of your links it’s CLEARLY visible the form of Sub-Saharan faces, in the past and still nowadays – BOOTLEAPS + SIMIAN JAWS. In short, NOT European at all. Now try to examine ancient Egyptian faces – NO bootleaps and NO Simian Jaws, and skin color is irrelevant.

    That just tells us a very small part of his DNA. We also don’t have his Mitochondrial DNA, do we? He could have had a European male ancestor hundreds of years before his time and every other person in his family tree could be non-European. This tells us nothing about his “race” other than that he was a human being. Also that .4% might be important…there are many r1b haplogroups in Africa that are fully African and differ just a bit from the European version.

    Now, the interesting thing is that Ramses II’s hair was red and he came from a line of red-heads. There are some Middle Eastern peoples that have red hair at times….but still the Egyptian royalty for some of the dynasties have been shown to be Middle-Eastern and some have been Nubian. So what. Hey, maybe we can all have Egypt as our common denominator between Africa, West Asia, and Europe….

    Hawass claims he is a scientist still he refuses other scientists to reveal and report their results just because they dont serve his goals whatever they are and the results.There is nothing more fascist and totalitarian than a self-proclaimed historian and archaeologist refusing reportation and further research into a scientific subject.Gamallah and Hawass are refusing on the grounds that independent archaeologists would tamper with Egyptian history if a scientific testing and research takes place.I really dont care if the sample turns out to be European , Nilotic , Jewish , Aramean or whatever i just want the truth.Egyptian people should be ashamed of this and defend scientific research not halt her or deny it.
