A Theory You've Never Heard Of | Michael Robinson | TEDxUniversityofHartford

  • Published on Nov 10, 2015
  • The Hamitic Hypothesis was a 19th century anthropological theory that claimed that humans originated in Asia and then migrated to other regions of the world. The theory was used to explain the discovery of so-called “white races” in Africa in the late 1800s. The Hamitic Hypothesis was not simply a curiosity of anthropological science. It was an idea that changed lives: from those European colonists who relied upon it to justify their presence in Africa, to the scientists who used it to explain away the accomplishments of African civilizations as a result of “white” influence. Ultimately, the Hamitic Hypothesis anchored a global theory of human origins and migration that, when combined with the Aryan race theory, shaped anthropology, colonial policy, and even the attitudes of Africans themselves for a hundred years.
    Michael Robinson is a historian of science and exploration at the University of Hartford. He is the author of "The Coldest Crucible: Arctic Exploration and American Culture." His new book The Lost White Tribe: Explorers, Scientists, and the Theory that Changed a Continent" comes out with Oxford University Press in December.

    He claims that Darwin and Lyell thought that the earth was hundreds of thousands of years old. That's just wrong. Darwin knew that the earth was at least hundreds of millions if not billions of years old ("in the first edition of his Origin of Species, he estimated that it took 300 million years to erode the Weald, a chalk deposit in southern England (Hallam, 106; Lewis, 25)"). Lyell was less specific, but his work suggests similar conclusions.

    Lush lands brought the lazy together. As population increased, supply decreased, mutative higher intelligence prevailed. Primal dominance with higher mutative intelligence overused resources causing famine, the strong organized religion to law the weaker into servitude. Some left went elsewhere to cooler less sun driven climates, mutative skin color ensued. Looks and skin color happened through dominance and intelligence. Being in cooler climates forced brain function to advance quicker for survival, that in turn reintegrated back into revisitation of origination. That cycled many times.developing genetic maps of our existence.

    Conclusion: Racism was born as a medieval interpretation of biblical stories trying to explain the existence of white people outside Eurasia, and later as a theory of sons of Noah conquering supposedly less advanced or developed races.

    I mean the idea that modern races would have evolved from certain races invading and pushing out, or breeding out another isn't crazy. It's absurd to use it to explain the existence of a secluded group of lighter skinned people, obviously. But that IS exactly what happened to the Neanderthals. Really makes ya think, what other kind of people could have existed and were lost to history.

    whilst its true that white European explorers, missionaries, colonialists, historians, archaeologists and people in general suffered debilitatingly from racism and let it affect their view on all things, places and non white people they encountered. There's another strong possibility; that Stanley did in fact see white people. Could it be that they were descendants of "remainers" from the European continent, for example, the Portuguese merchants/explorers who'd come to Africa in the 15th or 16th century and heard about kingdoms with abundant supplies of gold like Great Zimbabwe and ended up stranded in different parts of the continent . Perhaps they could also have been descendants of free, runaway or formerly enslaved white European people, who had made their way from the North or Arabia, bearing in mind that Spain is just across the water from the Barbary coast and the Arabs had ruled it for hundreds of years. Maybe they might have been the descendants of ancient Romans and Greeks that had studied in Egypt and then migrated inwards in to the continent and settled there? Stanley probably lied for clout or was mistaken but Im just saying, there are other plausible possibilities.

    and yes history proves the white race is more advanced than the other races, and my evidence is a simple question, who built the modern world over the last 400 years ???

    Ok that is a stretch. Don't you even believe he could have been right? In fact how can he be so blind and yet still be an explorer? You do have to be capable of seeing where to place your foot when you walk. Saying people stretch the truth is an understatement. In fact people believe in evolution even though they are missing the fossils to prove evolution. However the fossil record that does exist shows genetic manipulation and zero missing links. All different animals that can not bread where created separately. Procreation is the key. Combined with the missing transitional species, procreation proves that someone or something has changed life into it's many different forms in increments and not the indefensible evolution theory.

    Perhaps certain "white" tribes where at the edge of the great flood and where able to migrate to high altitude plateaus that had survived the flood and ended up flourishing there while also mixing with other native tribes that had also survived the flood! Theories of the flood suggest that the asteroid that caused the waters to turn in to tsunamis that flooded lowland areas did eventually face resistance from high mountain escarpments and many parts of Africa are at a high altitude!

  • Games & Entertainment Animator & Fiddler

    Great explanation of the Hypothesis. I hope Professor Robinson keeps in mind that we in this moment are still subject the the selective blindness that affects all humans in all places and times. We keep thinking our generation is the pinnacle of creation, that every generation *from the slime to us* has been struggling and striving toward brilliance. By that view, if you wind the grand clock backwards a few millennia, you would find people with less and less cognitive ability, until at some point in fairly recent history, humans would just be learning to excavate their nostrils with those finger thingies.

    Actually there's a lot of evidence - especially with the growing embrace of the so-called Smart Phone - that our technology is making us evolve BACKWARDS, with now two generations thinking they've achieved Nirvana now that they can communicate in pigeon English with their thumbs. >;ºp

    IT could have been a mental proclaimed perception dictated by the high altitude or hallucinate conceptions where upon racial differences were entrenched in his mind by preconceived notions ideas fed too him through biblical verses in genesis. People's minds generate false conclusions of race and complexion.And then when you add the difference in climate as Sir Stanley or Livingston were subjected to as explorers of such a vast continent they were bound to suffer from the Mr.Magoo effect. Then again Africa or African its countries borders boundaries even the name are all invented by white people. And again Africans have been influenced by the so-called whites as they perceive themselves as a dominant race which could carve out a whole continent and along with the people whom inhabit it as well other inhabitants. And do it again and again until who knows when people will efficiently come to realize the depth of their own heart mind sole purpose to will their own power too best fit their own initiative and not that of outsiders or which see themselves or others as outsiders based solely on information they receive from whites. They are all false constructs.

    13000 years ago a colonial type empire is at its peak, trading throughout the world with small numbers of its people in every corner of the world. Port cities would be key infrastructure with a people dependant on it. Dryas event occurs causing rapid sea level rise, all major cities flood, huge lose of population and sea level continues too rise for the next few thousand years preventing the building of ports, ships etc. Sea levels start too level off around 6000 years ago around the time of our first recorded civilisations. Small numbers of survivors from the fallen empire would survive leaving the dna traces we see today. Most underwater ruins 100ft - 400ft underwater date too at least 13000 years ago, before our history books say civilisations began.

      @Matthew Miller yeah Ive seen some of his work too, clever bloke tbf. I work in construction and I totally agree with a little knowledge it becomes apparent how imposible some of these things would have been with the accepted level of tech we potray humans as having at the time. Thats probably part of the problem, a construction guy says too a educated profesional "this would have been immposible" and the educated guy looks down and smiles an all knowing smile. Good talking too you too, not many free thinkers left

      richard smith lol, I am the same, can’t figure out why people don’t see the obvious lies, another very good UTuber is Brian Foerester, he does excellent videos, many on South America and he makes it obvious that the idea that these megalithic monuments could not possibly be made by Inca or Maya or Olmec or any civilization we know of. The machining is clear. Anyone who has worked in construction can see it immediately, really anyone who wishes to use common sense can see it. Nice talking with someone who follows this line thanks.

      @Matthew Miller totally agree its just a matter of time, there is currently a project taking place too map the sea floor by 2030. Unless key information is supressed Im confident we will have all kinds of new discoveries, lost underwater cities etc. Goblecki tepi is an awesome example, have you seen the Lidar scans of the 1000's of abandoned structures spread across south america? They have only covered a small area up too now but the scale of the discoveries, only seen from the air so far are staggering. Another off the coast of Cuba makes me laugh, a city, 650 meters below sea level and "experts" estimate its around 6000 years old 😂 In the same breath they say sea level hasnt been that low for 50-100,000 years. How do they get away with it? Baffles me how more people dont catch on

    • Matthew Miller
      Matthew Miller 21 day ago

      richard smith my thoughts exactly, yes there has been a lot of energy, time and money spent to give us the current academic theory on civilization. It’s quite the rabbit hole to go down to try and find out why. Been chasing this story for many years, I always felt something was missing and now I am convinced that it is not what they say. Goblecki Tepi is to me the ultimate evidence for what you are saying, but there is a great deal of evidence all over the world it is simply misinterpreted. I think the answers to why is going to come out in the next few years, hopefully.

    Anyone who can spend the time to climb mountains and research like this is NOT part of the general population. Always consider this fact, most humans will never even be able to look at the rest of the planet with their own eyes we are all subjects of the SMITHSONIAN Historical story.

    Simple question: How can it be said that Africa has the longest ' period of evolutionary history'
    If per theory Noah's ark landed somewhere in Asia & all people spun out of it? Or. Even if 'civilization' started near the Tigris & Euphartis river as I was taught in my secular education which declared Noah as well as the flood a fantastic myth? Seems to me their would be similar time periods of "evolution" (a misnomer as humans did not become antelope or antelope humans - just developed more as humans within their own species.
    Just a guess that our genetic make up was was dispersed everywhere. It is just easier to study this in Africa as it is not so widely dispersed geographically.
    I think there are 2 elements of racism in this - none of which speaker is responsible for.
    1) Racial differences were used as an excuse for colonization (greed)
    Think it is interesting that people's of Africa in bygone eras didn't recognize color as much as culture.
    2)already forgot what # 2 is. but will watch video maybe again. There is still a racial fallacy here & more recent existing in theory.
    Seems kind of simple to me on some levels. "White" genes did not adapt to heat very well. So many with genetic make up which were not heat tolerant migrated to cooler climates. This does not make their "evolution" (PLEASE get real & start calling things properly. Human history and variation within species is NOT a change from one species to another. It is only within recent times humans have indulged in gene slicing & possibly altered species.)
    I applaud the author and his observations.
    All based on past empirical observations.
    There is empiracal evidence of a global flood and many more things in the Bible.
    This historic record should not be ignored.
    There is evidence a man called Jesus Christ lived. & died by crucifixion. No evidence this was God's command or he saved anyone by being tortured...
    Truth lies in finding truth
    Stop the lies

    Personally I believe everything we are currently told about life, evolution, creation and the origins of the different races on earth is completely false. We may well have come to earth as fully formed beings from another planet.

    ok so after australopithicus afarensis we have a bunch of semi-human races and then neanderthal and then cro magnon. Now many of our ancestors began roaming the world,
    on foot and in makeshift canoes and papyrus rafts. As we moved around we settled in some areas. Then Toba volcano gave us humans a hard time....but we survived in pockets of the earth and then re-started the upward trend in population. Now at 8 billion we need to reduce population fast due to economic forces that slow down progress when we are pre-occupied feeding our fussy cro magnon babies and not using our time & energy to advance ourselves.

    So funny... Charles Darwin was a certified crazy person. Who developed his theory of competition, and it is still only a theory, while on forced sabbatical. Turns out he didn't have a very good experience in seminary School. Read up people history isn't learned in the classrooms it's learned in the books and the grunt work of scholarly Pursuits.

    To understand it you have to understand their intrigues of the melanin skin. That said, African are dark skinned but still with different shades. Some very dark to very light. In Nigeria, the Igbo tribe has many population that are very light skinned and some very dark, very very dark. So coming across them you would think they were white when compared to the very dark onces but they weren't white. If you look in the ancient African maps in the west of Africa it was written on it that some where white and that they keep the Sabbath. Nonetheless, most other races still migrated and settled...intermarrying as well. So when you ever read history books match their narrations with the understandings of the time.

      Even in my country there are lots of differences in our physical appearance, some are very tall with silky curly hair like the Fulanis. The Igbos are mostly light skinned and in general Nigerians are very tall, very very tall that even my 5ft 10 is considered very average to even short. The TVclip tribes are known for their curvy hips and big buttocks. And these differences are seen in one country. Imagine when you study the physical differences of the entire continent. Then theirs the languages, in Nigeria we have more than 200 spoken languages. Africa is interesting and I'm glad we stood the test of the time and are still going strong. My ultimate wish is to explore other continents. The human race is indeed intriguing.

      right? the original name was "slav". African's in fact enslaved Europeans in the 1300s on the Iberian peninsula. it's just that the establishment has a specific narrative and right now they want europeans attacked so they can destroy that history, then next I suppose they'll attack Asia again.

  • Michael Runnels

    Michael Robinson (15:32) states "Within Africa is a much longer evolutionary period of time for the human species than outside of it." This statement belongs to a theory of human evolution (Out of Africa) that has been contradicted in the last dozen years by massive studies of DNA around the world. The history of human DNA shows that, on a very basic level, there are two types of humans on earth. They are: 1. Those humans in Africa that have always been in Africa, and 2: Humans outside of Africa. There is a fundamental difference in the DNA of those two groups of humans. The first group, purely African, have no Neanderthal DNA and can trace their lineage as far back as 100,000 years. The second group, all humans outside of Africa, have Neanderthal DNA and can trace their lineage to at least 800,000 years ago. The complete picture of human evolution is certainly not known at this time, but the "Out of Africa" theory that modern humans evolved in Africa and migrated from Africa to the rest of the world, has been shown to be a theory that is not correct. Modern humans were outside of Africa more than half a million years before the migration out of Africa is supposed to have happened.

    Imagine basing your whole presentation on what one explorer said hundreds of years ago. Genetics tells us Neanderthal dna is the modern human. Europeans are typically highest levels followed asians who include denisovan. now you look for yourself and find mummies with that dna and red hair in the Americas, Asia, the greater known Egyptian kingdoms, kubla Khan, Muhammad and see for yourself, the land mass and subsequent bridges were significantly different than what we see and are taught about today.
    Just because some tenured professor who is funded by establishment tells you "so-called" and "myth", don't give them the time. DNA mutation occurs at a metered rate and you can reverse it in evolution.
    Sub-saharan Africans have 2% Neanderthals and the Khoikhoi and the San on out to Australian aboriginal populations have less. There is an unknown and older origin for these races, yet to discover.
    All known races are hybrid, none are an origin species.
    The non-northern African tribes as mentioned above have neanderthal dna, NOT THE OPPOSITE. This genetic fact destroys the Out of Africa theory. Establishment pushes this and its not true. They attack you for saying so and a professor of history will lose their livelihood saying that but is perfectly safe pushing and living a lie.
    Humans are more than slaves. Free your mind. They make education boring in hopes you won't want to know.
