ROoA has it that the Sahulian element in Native Americans is via NE Asia (presumably by land through Beringia though there were certainly boats in Sahul within the last 50kya). Thus the Sahulian element was partly erased in North America by later Asiatic “migration” (gene flow through ordinary kinship relationships). Part of the ROoA dogma is that whenever possible, only “age of enlightment” Europeans has the ability to travel between continents. __________________________________________________________________________________________________Another possibility is intentional or waif travel directly from Sahul to the Americas very early. IMO Sahulian sealers living on the Greater Antarctica ice is the best explanation. During colder periods the sea ice (for people with small boats), was the most favorable place to live in the World. Seals were the greatest single mass of mammal flesh in the World, and there were marine plant and other marine resources. _________________________________________________________________________________________________People consider this impossible because Antarctica is so inhospitable now. However, the sea ice was much further out during cold periods, and in contact with much warmer water, with a much warmer climate than the Antarctic Coast today. _______________________________________________________________________________________________Relatively full blood Sahulians any place around NE Asia at any time is not evidenced either by the fossil record or genetics. Traces of Sahulian genes in early NE AMHS is due to gene flow out of Sahul such as post Toba. Not from some fantasy Sahulian population in the immediate area. However by invoking unevidenced essential replacements one can “prove” about any fantasy dogma in places and times for which there is little data. ______________________________________________________________Nor do ROoA paleoanthropologists know how to distinguish Sahulians from either Africans or Asians by fossils, so they are not in a position to know how poorly evidenced the hypothesis of Sahulians in NE Asia at any time is. Some how post WW II competency in understanding extant human systematics has become “racism”. Makes teaching and learning MUCH easier, but hardly leads to cogent understanding. ___________________________________________________________________________________________There even have been proposals from biological anthropologists that some how forensic anthropology should be banned (so that murderers can more easily get away with their crimes), because some how having the ability to know the geographic origins of humans remains is “racist”. The Jomon clearly have some morphological affinities with Sahulians, but these are deep enough this is not detected in genetics for the most part (nor is the Jomon relationships with Europeans or other Asians detected yet in genetics).
