Re: Which test is which?
In Response To: Re: Which test is which? ()

Historian (and by the way, what is your real name?),
You seem to make a LOT of assumptions. Let me point out the assumptions you've made in error:
1. That your message disturbed me. I didn't get upset at all.
2. That I am unaware of the contributions of ancient Kemet to civilization. In one of my courses this semester, African Diaspora, our main text was Anthony Browder's text, Nile Valley Contributions to Civilization.
3. You asked, "Why didn't you ask me more about the Fulani?". My question to you, "Why do you feel that I should have asked you about the Fulani?" You've assumed that once I learned in 2004 that my mtDNA is a match to the Fulani of northern Cameroon, that I have not read about them. In fact, one of my papers last semester dealt with the effects of colonization on the Fulani of Northern Nigeria and Northern Cameroon.
4. You asked, "What you should have asked me is what do those pyramids look like?" Again, how do you know that I haven't seen these pyramids in person??

Please refrain from telling people what they should be thinking. I am sure your desire is to educate, which is commendable, but when you make bold, false assumptions, as if you are the supreme authority on the subject, then your words of knowledge will soon fall on death ears. The approach in educating history is indeed important.

Take Care,
Mel
