If there were "Aryans," they were potheads

20 03 11 - 13:05


Nearly two pounds of still-green plant material found in a 2,700-year-old grave in the Gobi Desert has just been identified as the world's oldest marijuana stash, according to a paper in the latest issue of the Journal of Experimental Botany.

A barrage of tests proves the marijuana possessed potent psychoactive properties and casts doubt on the theory that the ancients only grew the plant for hemp in order to make clothing, rope and other objects.

It was found lightly pounded in a wooden bowl in a leather basket near the head of a blue-eyed Caucasian man who died when he was about 45.

"This individual was buried with an unusual number of high value, rare items," Russo said, mentioning that the objects included a make-up bag, bridles, pots, archery equipment and a kongou harp. The researchers believe the individual was a shaman from the Gushi people, who spoke a now-extinct language called Tocharian that was similar to Celtic. - MSN


This article is the most subversive thing I can imagine. First, it guts our conventional wisdom that European society was ignorant until about 1500 years ago. Second, it lays to waste the idea that marijuana smoking is recent. Finally, it points out that Caucasians wandered the world long before we thought they did. Wait until they prove that "Native Americans" were descendents of a Caucasian society which interbred with its servants, or that Europeans have an origin in India. Science has so many incomplete answers, yet wants us to think they're all definitive.

According to Herodotus, the Schyts were pothead too.

"Native Americans" are actually Mongolians. Europeans reached North America first and then these so-called natives crossed over from Asia. Europeans either left or were killed by them. We returned and basically returned the favor. Now people only remember recent history and the Europeans were "evil". cuntpunt (Email ) - 20-03-’11 15:40

Heh. Ancient people knew how to live. Why is everyone such a fucking tool nowadays? Norse (Email ) - 21-03-’11 06:07

How I read the Clovis theory was the Europeans interbred with the Asians who came over after the ice shelf melted back -- the Native Americans are mixed. I'm too bleh today to go searching for my citations, but I recall this being backed up by DNA. pulsar (Email ) - 21-03-’11 09:19

Pulsar. Neither Haplogroup X or the Solutreanlike blades is a real proof of a pre-mongoloid europoid population. None the less it is a possibility. Faggotcrusher - 21-03-’11 15:04

"Science has so many incomplete answers, yet wants us to think they're all definitive."

You mean apart from the many, many times 'science' has u-turned in the face of sufficient evidence?

Specious nonsense as ever, Prozak. Why don't you try actually reading a journal for once, it'll do you good. Bastard (Email ) - 21-03-’11 16:28

"This article is the most subversive thing I can imagine."

Your imagination is pretty limited then.

"First, it guts our conventional wisdom that European society was ignorant until about 1500 years ago. Second, it lays to waste the idea that marijuana smoking is recent. "

I've never heard of either of these supposed conventional wisdoms. But you'll have to qualify "ignorant". Just because they smoked weed doesn't mean they were reading and writing and doing abstract mathematics. (They weren't.)

"Finally, it points out that Caucasians wandered the world long before we thought they did. "

No it doesn't. It shows that Indo-European speakers did. There is no guarantee that the Tocharians were in any racial sense Caucasian.

"Wait until they prove that "Native Americans" were descendents of a Caucasian society which interbred with its servants, or that Europeans have an origin in India."

What makes you think that either of those things will happen?

"Science has so many incomplete answers, yet wants us to think they're all definitive. "

No it doesn't. It's consumers of science, sometimes even highly trained engineers, that assume that it's definitive. Scientific researchers themselves are always the first to admit that their knowledge is incomplete. Dave (Email ) - 05-04-’11 13:35
