Meet Your Mommy!: Mitochondrial Eve, Mother of Us All!

Mitochondrial Eve

This is our Mommy, Mitochondrial Eve. Dr. Ishakamusa Baranshango states, “Mitochondrial Eve refers to more than one woman, a group of women, several thousand with the same strand of mitochondrial DNA”.   According to Newsweek:

Mitochondrial Eve is believed to have lived between 100,000 to 200,000 years ago and is the common woman ancestor of all  huemans and humans. Evidence show that Mitochondrial Eve lived within the sub-Saharan region of Africa.  Mitochondrial Eve is described as being the most “fruitful,” meaning that her genes are present within all huemans and humans today. Mitochondrial Eves’ descendants left Africa and ventured out into and settled in other parts of the world around 90,000 to 180,000 years ago. Mitochondrial Eve’s descendants are said to have been “endowed” with “special advantages” that other early humans did not have, which allowed them to populate the earth and leave their genetic marker via Mitochondrial Eve.

There it is! This is part of WHO YOU ARE Black Woman/African Woman. This is Your importance and status on planet earth from a scientific perspective. This explains why the Black/African Woman was chosen by God, herself and Nature as THE ORIGINAL WOMAN WITH THE ORIGINAL WOMB. It is YOUR womb, that according the the ancients is the most sacred and  created and birthed ALL Peoples and nations on planet earth.

  1. If only we knew we are the cradle of civilisation. I see no mention of men, is that to say that the mitochondrial eve reproduce all by herself?


    1. I’m going to do another post in which I will discuss more about Mitochondrial Adams. The authors of the article in which I have gotten the information from mostly focused on the Eves.


  2. Welcome! The authors of the source in which I have gotten this information from mentioned mostly mitochondrial Eve, there was only one or two sentences mentioning mitochondrial Adam. This is only the first post about our mitochondrial parents. I will be doing another one about both mitochondrial Adam and Eve when I gather more info. Thanks for commenting!

  3. Here’s an interesting article O13. Some very interesting points on how whites came to be. I thought you might like it.

    Europeans were Brown-Skinned 5,000 – 6,000 Years Ago. Negroid Pygmies migrated into Southeast Asia (Vietnam, Cambodia, Burma and Thailand, Java, Sumatra, Malaya, Korea, Japan) followed by Australoid and Melanesian Negritos and Papuans between 30,000 and 40,000 years ago. Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines, and most of the islands of the Pacific developed their own isolated cultures and native beliefs but were not affected by literate civilization until the arrival of sailing vessels in the 16th Century. Pygmies from Africa are referred to as “Negrillos.” Pygmies who live in South East Asia, New Guinea and The Philippines are referred to as “Negritos.”
    The progression of losing skin color in humans is called “differentiation” and came about because of a sudden onslaught of the returning Ice Age in Europe lasting 8,000 – 12,000 years. The Ice Age caused the loss of sunlight and lack of Vitamin-D to inland people trapped. In The History and Geography of Human Genes, Cavalli-Sforza explains the connection between climate and physiological traits: the classical trait is skin color on which climate acts in many ways.
    By absorbing ultraviolet rays, dark skin is advantageous in protecting against solar erythema and skin carcinomas (cancer), but it is a bar against the production of vitamin D in the lower skin layers. Especially when the diet produces little or no vitamin D, having white skin is a necessity in high latitude. Using this theory, the white skin color of northern Europeans evolved (and inversely changed during) the last 5,000 years from a light-brown color characteristic of Caucasoid commencing from West Asia and North Africa to a white skin color.
    The individuals whose skin was unable to adapt survived, but those who were not able to adapt eventually died out until there were no more dark-skinned people left in that region. Cut off from the rest of the human family, and land-locked, it was in this relative isolation (dark-skinned people) underwent adaptations in a frigid, relatively sunless environment. This resulted in the creation of a new human race characterized by pale skin, lightened straight hair, varying shades of eye color, and narrow angular facial features.


    The Aurignacian Africans were the first Homo sapiens to enter Europe in approximately 40,000 B.C. Before the Ice Age event that followed, there were only Negritic (Black) people on this planet. This migration to Europe occurred during a brief warming event during the Ice Age beginning 115,000 years ago. After a few years the warming period came to a close and the full force of the Ice Age returned. During that colder period the color of the Aurignacians’ skin began to lighten. It was not until thousands of years later that “the mesocephalic trait appeared during the Mesolithic Age (around 10,000 years ago) and the brachycephalic so-called Yellow race first appeared much later.”
    Are whites the albino offspring of Black Africans? White skin is a form of albinism. It appears that whites have “come into being” through a number of ways: In The Isis Papers p123, Dr. Frances Cress Welsing states “whites are undoubtedly a genetic mutant albino population from the original Black (hue-man) beings.” The story of ‘Snowflake’ dramatically illustrates how it is possible for whites to come into being from blacks: Born of coal black parents, this albino gorilla named “Snowflake” has platinum blond hair, white (pink) skin, and blue eyes! (National Geographic: Mar. 67, Oct. 70). Similarly in Panama, particularly among the San Blas Indians are albino natives that also have blond hair and blue eyes! They are often indistinguishable from blond Northern Europeans! In the Bible, Edomites are whites who descended from an albino named Esau who was born ruddy (red) & hairy. (Gen. 25:25) The Bible refers to white skin as leprosy (Num. 12:10-12, Lev. 13) and reports that a race of people (Gahazites) was born white due to being cursed! (II Kings 5:27) Bible scholars credit Japheth (a son of Noah) as fathering a (Black) people who settled in the north, ultimately becoming the Caucasian Race.
    Similarly, other scholars theorize that Africans who migrated to Europe and were caught in the Ice Age, gradually lightened until their genes mutated to adapt to the scant sunlight, thus producing a race of whites. Interestingly, the ancient Egyptians recorded the Tamahu, which means created white people. Egyptian writings also refer to whites as Typhonians or People of Seth. After these whites were first released into the Black community of the Near East 6,000 years ago, they caused sever strife; thus, the Africans rounded them up, stripped them of everything and exiled them to the caves and hills of the Caucasus Mountains.
    Researchers have disagreed for decades about an issue that is only skin-deep: How quickly did the first modern humans who swept into Europe acquire pale skin? Now a new report on the evolution of a gene for skin color suggests that Europeans lightened up quite recently, perhaps only 6,000 to 12,000 years ago. This contradicts a long-standing hypothesis that modern humans in Europe grew paler about 40,000 years ago, as soon as they migrated into northern latitudes. Under darker skies, pale skin absorbs more sunlight than dark skin, allowing ultraviolet rays to produce more vitamin D for bone growth and calcium absorption. “The [evolution of] light skin occurred long after the arrival of modern humans in Europe,” molecular anthropologist Heather Norton of the University of Arizona, Tucson, said in her talk.
    Researchers made a major breakthrough in 2005 by discovering a gene, SLC24A5, that apparently causes pale skin in many Europeans but not in Asians. A team led by geneticist Keith Cheng of Pennsylvania State University (PSU) College of Medicine in Hershey found two variants of the gene that differed by just one amino acid. Nearly all Africans and East Asians had one allele, whereas 98% of the 120 Europeans they studied had the other (Science, 28 October 2005, p. 601).
    Norton, who worked on the Cheng study as a graduate student, decided to find out when that mutation swept through Europeans. Working as a postdoc with geneticist Michael at the University of Arizona, she sequenced 9,300 base pairs of DNA in theSLC24A5 gene in 41 Europeans, Africans, and American Indians. Using variations in the gene that did not cause paling, she calculated the background mutation rate of SLC24A5 and thereby determined that 18,000 years had passed since the light-skin allele was fixed in Europeans. But the error margins were large, so she also analyzed variation in the DNA flanking the gene. She found that Europeans with the allele had a “striking lack of diversity” in this flanking DNA—a sign of very recent genetic change, because not enough time has passed for new mutations to arise. The data suggest that the selective sweep occurred 5,300 to 6,000 years ago, but given the imprecision of method, the real date could be as far back as 12,000 years ago, Norton said. She added that other, unknown, genes probably also cause paling in Europeans.
    Either way, the implication is that Europeans were brown-skinned for tens of thousands of years—a suggestion made 30 years ago by Stanford University geneticist L. Luca Cavalli-Sforza. He argued that the early immigrants to Europe, who were hunter-gatherers, herders, and fishers, survived on ready-made sources of vitamin D in their diet. But when farming spread in the past 6,000 years.

    1. Interesting! What I find crazy is how whites want to say that huemans/humans evolved from apes (not seeming to realize that they are including themselves in this nonsense psuedo-science), then turn around again and compare black people with monkeys/apes,then act like they are superior. ***eye roll*** I also recall an article someone posted on another blog/website that white scientist now want to admit that Asians and Whites have Neanderthal DNA Whereas Black People do not. Very telling.

      1. This is proof that we (us and them) simply are just not built the same and whites are just now wanting to admit it. Many people have a hard time understanding or should I say OVERstanding this truth. If you say this you’re called a racist by some and the truth is not racist.

    1. Thank you! I love this song and I thought of how the main line would be a good theme for the blog since literally Black Women are every woman.
