Part 02 - Study Casts Doubt on Europeans' Ancestral Link to the Holy Land - the "Fertile Crescent" and "Christmas"
Europeans are most closely related to the Stone Age hunter-gatherers who arrived on the continent 40,000 years ago, says recent report, stimulated by the war in Iraq and Abraham's legacygiven to all three of the major religions.
"Was the garden of Eden located in Iraq? . .. and did Cain really kill Ablel, then flee into the land of Nod?
Not too many archeologists were surprised from the most recent reports from England, that many adept migrants really did not came from the Fertile Crescent who introduced agriculture to the continent 7,500 years ago.
That's the conclusion of the first detailed analysis of maternally inherited DNA extracted from 24 of the migrant farmers' skeletons.
The study was published Friday in the journal Science.
"We were surprised to find close to zero" resemblance between the early farmers' genes and those of modern Europeans, said Peter Forster, an archeologist at Britain's University of Cambridge who coauthored the study.
Although the farmers from the Middle East transformed European culture, bringing agriculture, distinctive pottery and advanced building techniques, the genetic mark they left is minuscule.
"In the worldwide database of 35,000 modern DNA lineages, there are fewer than 50 modern Europeans with the farmers' DNA," Forster said.
The new data, however, clash with analyses of paternally inherited DNA, derived from the Y chromosomes of living Europeans.
Those genetic analyses suggest that the farmers may have contributed up to half of the European gene pool.
R. Alexander Bentley, an anthropologist at Britain's Durham University, said there may be an easy way to resolve the conflict.
"A simple explanation for the difference is that indigenous hunter-gatherer females intermarried" with early farmers, he said. Thus, maternally inherited DNA would show a connection to the hunter-gatherers, while paternally inherited DNA would be linked to the farmers. "Christmas Boycott" Is Called Off After Retailer's Apology For Using "Happy Holidays."
When Wal-Mart wrote, what they thought was a nice Christmas greeting, how did they know that Christmas resulted from traditions around the world, such as Siberian shamanism and Visigoth calendars.
"Santa was borrowed from the [Caucasus], mistletoe from the Celts, yule log from the Goths, the time from the Visigoth and the tree from the worship of Baal. It is a wide wide world," Kirby wrote.
AP news reported from Little Rock, Arkansas that: Roman Catholic civil rights group called off a boycott of Wal-Mart Stores Inc. on Friday, the12th, -- after the world's largest retailer apologized for an employee's e-mail that called Christmas a mix of world religions.
Wal-Mart spokesman Dan Fogleman said the e-mail -- sent without review by other employees -- did not represent Wal-Mart's policies.
"This is a sweet victory for the Catholic League, Christians in general and people of all faiths," said Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, in a statement on the group's website.
Wal-Mart said Thursday that a customer service employee named Kirby had written an inappropriate e-mail to a woman who complained that the retailer had replaced a "Merry Christmas" greeting with "happy holidays." The company, based in Bentonville, Ark., also said Kirby no longer worked for Wal-Mart.
He said employees would continue to wish people "happy holidays" because the greeting was more inclusive.
Donohue of the Catholic League said the practice, although "dumb," was never part of his group's complaint.
"We only trigger boycotts when we've been grossly offended," he said.

 03. The Church and The Crusaders - The year was 1095 CE, William the Conqueror had united England under one crown 30 years earlier. The French had been dividing properties amongst their sons for generations, causing bloodshed between brothers over small pieces of real estate. In reaction, Pope Urban II expanded "The Truce of God", which outlawed fighting from Sunday to Wednesday, and banned fighting involving priests, monks, women, laborers and merchants on any day of the week. Italy was a collection of city-states, constantly being overrun by invading hordes, the latest of which were the Normans, who had just started to become "civilized". MORE STORY
