  Aryan Tourist Theory (TM)

The title of this article is borrowed from Rajeev Srinivasan’s trademark ATT (Aryan Tourist Theory) as a counter to the Aryan Influx (Invasion) Theory being promoted by indologist creationists who believe in the creation of the universe in 4004 BC, following the Biblical tradition. 

Close on the heels of this report published on December 20, 2005, on Harvard's scandal & Hindu conspiracy the renowned newsmagazine, The Economist of London, has been recruited as of December 21, 2005, as a co-conspirator in this global Hindu conspiracy.  

The title of the cover story is: The long march of everyman.  

Since the information is premium content, only excerpts can be provided. Coded contents using DNA/Genetic code words and the cypher will be revealed only to privileged clients such as the Harvard University group led by Witzel.  

The scoop is that Rajeev Srinivasan has trademarked a new version of AIT and calls it "Aryan Tourist Theory". Congratulations to Rajeev on this invention which could have far-reaching implications for bringing the Harvard international scandal to the desired outcome. Romila Thapar, Michael Witzel have to contend with discovery of tourist visas used by 'Aryans' as they influxed into Bharatam.

Since the prestige of Harvard University is at stake, new methods have to be evolved to perpetuate the possibility of Aryan tourist entry into India in 1500 BCE. One method being contemplated, informed sources report, is to say that this is another hindutva plot to humiliate the prestigious Harvard University which alone has the right to teach Hindu children a lesson. A larger task lies ahead of the Harvard group led by Witzel: to educate the international community of parents on what hindutva means. (Hindu conspirators claim that this means the essence of being hindu in dharma-dhamma-veda-bauddha-jaina continuum of bharatiya tradition; clearly a tough continuum to contend with in sixth grade classrooms). Yet the job has to be done; the prestige of Harvard University is on the line.  

Fwd. with thanks, a precise note from Rajeev Srinivasan (Dec. 20, 2005).  

I'm afraid this link is premium content, but it clearly states that the evidence from genetics precludes an 'aryan' invasion of India in 1500 BCE. the first human migration to India is around 60,000 years ago, and
europe was populated much later.

however, there are elements of 'conquest' still in the theories about
India, see end of the excerpts below about female and male dna. this sounds like 'aryan tourist theory' (trademarked by me) warmed over, and I am sceptical about it. southerners ki jai :-)

TM 'aryan tourist theory': white guys go live in other countries on tourist visas, marry local women and settle down. thus their genes appear in the local population.

excerpts only, to protect the economist's copyright. it has a great chart too.

Detail, however is not the same as consensus, and there are two schools of thought about how people left
Africa in the first place. Appropriately, some of their main protagonists are at the rival English universities of Oxford and Cambridge. The Oxford school, championed by Stephen Oppenheimer, believes that the descendants of a single emigration some 85,000 years ago, across the strait of Bab el Mandeb at the southern end of the Red Sea, are responsible for populating the rest of the world. The Cambridge school, championed by Robert Foley and Marta Mirazón Lahr, agrees that there was, indeed, a migration across this strait, though probably nearer to 60,000 years ago. However, it argues that many non-Africans are the descendants of at least one subsequent exodus.

Both schools agree that the Bab el Mandebites spread rapidly along the coast of southern Arabia and thence along the south coast of Asia to Australia, though Dr Oppenheimer has them turning inland, too, once they crossed the strait of Hormuz. But it is in describing what happened next that the two versions really part company, for it is here that the descendants of the Oxford migration run into the eruption of Toba.  

That Toba devastated South and South-East Asia is not in doubt. Thick layers of ash from the eruption have been found as far afield as northern Pakistan. The question is whether there were people in Asia at the time. One of the most important pieces of evidence for Dr Oppenheimer's version of events is some stone tools in the ash layer in Malaysia, which he thinks were made by Homo sapiens. Molecular clocks have a regrettable margin of error, but radioactive dating is a lot more accurate. If he is right, modern humans must have left Africa before the eruption. The tools might, however, have been crafted by an earlier species of human that lived there before Homo sapiens. For Dr Oppenheimer, the eruption was a crucial event, dividing the nascent human population of Asia into two disconnected parts, which then recolonised the intermediate ground. In the Cambridge version, Homo sapiens was still confined to Africa 74,000 years ago, and would merely have suffered the equivalent of a nuclear winter, not an ash-fall of up to five metres—though Dr Ambrose and his colleagues think even that would have done the population no good.  The Cambridge version is far more gentle. The descendants of its subsequent exodus expanded north-eastwards into central Asia, and thence scattered north, south, east and west—though in a spirit of open-mindedness, Sacha Jones, a research student in Dr Foley's department, is looking in the ash layer in India to see what she can find there.  

Both also agree that Europe received two waves of migration. The ancestors of the bulk of modern Europeans came via central Asia about 35,000 years ago, though some people in the Balkans and other parts of southern Europe trace their lines back to an earlier migration from the Middle East. But the spread of agriculture from its Middle Eastern cradle into the farthest reaches of Europe does not, as some researchers once thought, seem to have been accompanied by a mass movement of Middle Eastern farmers.  

The coming together of two groups of humans can be seen in modern India, too. In the south of the subcontinent, people have Y-chromosomes derived almost exclusively from what the Cambridge school would interpret as being northern folk (and the Oxford school as the western survivors of Toba). However, more than 20% of their mitochondria arrived in Asia with the first migration from Africa (or, according to taste, clung on along the south-eastern fringes of the ash plume).

That discovery speaks volumes about what happened when the two groups met. It suggests that many modern south Indians are descended from southern-fringe women, but few from southern-fringe men—implying a comprehensive conquest of the southerners by the northerners, who won extra southern wives.

Another co-conspirator has emerged surprisingly from down-under.  

Now for the breath-taking ice age footsteps. This is the decisive blow to the creationist indologists who believe in AIT (Aryan Influx Theory) because the universe according to the Bible was created only in 4004 BC. Any evidence prior to this date is a scientific hoax if the indologists are to be believed. When will the indologists learn to respect science?

In this photo released by the Environment Ministry, a footprint believed to be that of a man is shown in the Willandra Lakes district in western New South Wales of Australia. Michael Amendolia / AP “The prints were made in moist clay near the Willandra Lakes 19,000 to 23,000 years ago, the newspaper reported ahead of archeologists' report on the find to be published in the Journal of Human Evolution.”
