busting the anthromyths about kurds on the internet

i had several discussions with turks on youtube .....many of them try to portray us as south asian derived people . which is wrong as you should know by now if you have seen our genetic results and also the facial galleries

if not then check out these threads :




i am pretty sick of it . because i dont like it when lies and misinformation is spread no matter about which topic but especially so when it is about my ethnicity

i really wonder why they seem to think it . but i think there are 2 major reasons

1. because they associate iranic languages to south asians . which needless to say is absolute rubbish

2. because they are unaware of the gypsies in eastern anatolia . as i said already we have hundred thousands of gypsies and probably even more and many of them larp as kurds and turks . and regardless of eastern turkey the gypsy population in turkey in general is pretty big . so when the turks meet / see them in the metropolical cities they wrognly assume that these gypsies are kurds . mostly because reason 1. applies again . how stupid is that

3. they just hate us and want to show us as some kind of foreigners who came from very far etc

i will continue this thread later

myth nr.1 : "kurds have south asian genes and also look south asian"


we dont . on myheritage (which is not a good test to begin with tbh) some kurds will score around 3% south asian on average . these merely 3% are often taken by some idiots as "oh look at that !" as if 3% is a lot lol . on the other hand many kurds also score several percent of northwest european like irish english etc. on myheritage but of course that doesnt matter right ? you will barely see them talking about that but oh the 3% south asian !!!! ..btw. just for the record i score 0% south asian on myheritage and many other kurds also

on 23andme we also score 0%

when it comes to gedmatch :

the south asian component / reference in many calculators like eurogenes k13 , eurogenes k15 etc. has a lot of masked / hidden west asian in it . and even with that our south asian score is only around 7% . even some georgians score 3-4% there and many north caucasians score around 5%

many turks get around 4-5% too some even around 6-7% . assyrians score 4-5% too , etc. etc. . so even in those calcs with hidden west asian in the south asian component we have barely more than other nearby ethnicities . the reason why we have merely 2-3% more is because we have more iran neolithic ancestry (which is west asian) and the west asian in the south asian component derives mostly from iran neo

if you want to see the REAL south asian you have to look into these calculators :

- eurogenes k12b

- dodecad k12b

- harappaworld

in these calcs the south asian component has no or almost none hidden west asian in it . and guess what ....

our south asian scores in those calcs are :

eurogenes k12b: 1.5% on average

dodecad k12b : around 2-3% on average

harappaworld : also around 2-3% on average

which is just as much (or rather as low) as other northern west asian people

in fact many turks get 4% on eurogenes k12b so more than us . lel . if you dont believe me then look it up and run turkish kits through it . i am not sure at this moment but i think on dodecad k12b many turks get 3% south asian too

yet they have the nerve to depict us as south asian ? as if we are not native to west asia ?

take note that especially eurogenes k12b is a very good calculator to show south asian admix . only south asians or south asian derived people such as gypsies will score high in it . balkan gypsies score 25% ! . sri lankans for example score around 65% . i guess that it peaks in tribal indians such as paniya ...they would probably score 80% or so . and we kurds get almost zero of it of course

eurogenes k12b is a good gypsy detector . if you are a european for example and you score a decent chunk of it then you have either some gypsy ancestry or you have south asians intermarried into your family at some point . people from the balkans can use this calculator if they are suspecting to have gypsy ancestry . it will definitely show

and before i forget : the "gedrosia" or "baloch" component in dodecad k12b and harappaworld is NOT south asian . i have seen some turks claiming that LMFAO .

it is not south asian it is west asian and it comes from CHG and Iran N .

check the updated dodecad k12b spreadsheet and look how much gedrosia georgians , chechens , lezgins etc. get . lel


dont be confused by the name "gedrosia" . it doesnt come from gedrosia ....it is just that this component peaks there in baloch and brahui people . but it doesnt originate from there and the balochs and brahuis have south asian admix

and now coming to G25

we kurds get modelled without any AASI . so this alone leaves out any bullshitting thesis that we are south asianoid (as if the gedmatch results are not enough already)

Target: Kurdish
Distance: 2.5576% / 0.02557607
34.2 Iran_Neolithic
24.4 Early_European_Farmer
17.0 Caucasus_Hunter_Gatherer
17.0 Levant_Neolithic
7.4 Eastern_European_Hunter_Gatherer

and no ...iran neolithic is not south asian and all northern west asians score a lot of it . even greeks and south italians score 10%

and finally i will post faces of kurds again to round it up . i already shared the links to the gallery threads above but i would like to post some collages here so you have it in fron of your eyes while reading the thread :

this is what we kurds look like ....

click on the spoiler to see kurds :

myth nr.2 . "everybody from eastern and southeastern turkey is kurdish"


while it is true that the majority in eastern and southeastern turkey is kurdish ....there are many turks , some armenians , some assyrians , some georgians , a good amounht of arabs , and hundreds thousands of gypsies ....our gypsies are not well known therefore their number is highly underestimated . and many of them larp as kurds and turks .

many people actually dont know that and the numbers are not official but there are hundreds of thousands of gypsies in southeast/east turkey . our gypises are actually some of the most unknown

these are dom gypsies from kurdish provinces . compare them with the ethnic kurds above in the collages :

ckick on the spoiler to see the gypsies :












look at this instrument . that instrument is played mostly by gypsies . look at the pic below it says "kurdish" . so when people see that video they think this guy is a kurd ? no surprise that some people have kurds as a south asianoid looking people in mind lol


also look at this woman . she is on a kurdish festival . do you think she is kurdish ? she is obviously a gypsy . but when people see the pic with kurdish flag colors etc. they probably assume that she is kurdish ?

compare her to the ethnic non gypsy kurdish women below in the collages . i am not saying this to demean the lady . dont get me wrong . i dont mean any offense . i am only stating facts . she sticks out like a sore thumb and looks nothing like a kurd . just like the other gypsies

myth nr. 3 : "many of the "turks" living in europe are actually kurds"


turks will often claim this nonsense because they are ashamed of what some of the turks in europe behave like . they will try to either say that these turks are kurds or that they are mostly from "eastern turkey" and not turks from north/west

it is not true . the majority of the people from turkey who immigrated in europe are turks . and not only turks from the east or something that is bullshit . i am living in germany since 31 years and i can confirm that most people from turkey here are turks and they are fromn all kind of turkish provinces . in fact i know more turks from north and west turkey than i do from east turkey

you can look up any statistic if you want . turks are more numerous than we are in turkey alone since we are a minority . and they send a lot of gues workers to central europe etc.

so how the fuck are all those turks in europe supposed to be kurds . just LOL

myth nr. 4 : "kurds are not native to anatolia"

partially WRONG !

this is often claimed by turks . they claim this to make it seem as if we are on foreign land in eastern turkey

funnily enough the turks on one hand claim that they are steppe turkic warriors and not anatolians and on the other hand they claim that they are native anatolians and that we kurds are not . of course turks are a mix of native anatolian + oghuz turkomans who invaded anatolia . but the double standards of turks never cease to amaze me


even though we kurds originally originated in west iran (as far as i know) . we still have native ancestry from asia minor and we have been there since a very long time


"Corduene is considered proto-Kurdish and a precursor to modern Kurdistan. The Kingdom of Gordyene emerged from the declining Seleucid Empire and for most of its history, it was a province of the Roman Empire and acknowledged the sovereignty of Rome."

turks get modelled as anatolian + oghuz ( turkmen uzbekistan and turkmen ashgabat as proxy for oghuz turkomans)

Turkmen_Uzbekistan 31.95
Turkmen_Ashgabat 7.75

furthermore :

we kurds have blood right on turkey too . in the independence war of turkey we kurds fought with turks together and we also have had deaths / fallen soldiers etc.

we established turkey together . after that the turks tried to turkify us and they denied our identity and said that we are "mountain turks" etc. . they have not let us speak our own language and said that we are turks and any disagreement of the kurdish side to this opression has been answered with violence by the turks

myth nr. 4 : "kurds are not native to anatolia"

Kurds are not native to the Western Anatolia, but we are native to SouthEast Anatolia. Amed is a capital of Great Kurdistan. It was also a capital of the Medes. A-med = city of the Medes.
Amed lies in Anatolia. Also, the Western Kurdish cities like Dersim are in the Eastern Anatolia.

Kurds are much more native to our region than Mongoloid Turks, who are originally from Central Asia/Altai.

The most Western parts of the Medes were in Anatolia. The Medes predate Turanic Mongoloid Turks by thousands of years!

Turks should go back to Central Asia/Altai. There is no place for them in the Middle East, period.

We Kurds MADE the Middle East. We are the knight, kings of the Middle East. There was a time when our Aryan ancestors ruled the Middle East like true Aryans with love. The Medes, the Parthians are all Northern Western Asian civilizations that brought civilization to the Middle East.

The whole Middle Eastern art is heavily influenced by the Aryans!

What about Saladin? Saladin as a Kurd who liberated the whole Middle East from the Europeans.

I am a Kurd and Turkey is NOT my country! I am from Kurdistan!

Turkey is not our country. Great Kurdistan is OUR country. The country of our Aryan ancestors.

Western Turkey if part of Greece. Some parts of Turkey are Armenia, some parts are Georgia.

And Southeast Turkey has always been Kurdistan, is Kurdistan and will always be Kurdistan!

I am 100% a Kurd and Turkey is not my country and never was. As a Kurmanji Kurd my roots are for 75% from Northern Kurdistan, Wan-Kars region. My patern bloodline (my (Y-DNA R1a*) is from Shengal/Ezdixan.

I have nothing to do with Turkey. What has Shengal/Ezdixan to do with Turkey. What does my Aryan religion the Yezidism has to do with Turkey? What does my Aryan language has to do with Turkey?

I am not born in Turkey, I was only 1 time in (Western) Turkey and that is when i drove to Georgia by a car. I can not describe my HATRED for the country Turkey.

My homeland is Kurdistan, from Amed to Kermanshah. Dersim, Qamishli, Kirkuk, Hamedan are all MY Kurdish towns. And they are all in my heart.

Kurdistan = Kurdistan, and no compromise, never!


Active member
Yeah, but when you say Turkey is your country, it is really not my country. And I am Kurd.

Why should Turkey be a country for Kurds from Kirkuk or Mehabad? I do not get it.

I am 100% a Kurd. And was only once in my life in the Western Turkey. Those people and that land has nothing to do with me at all. I am a Kurd, and why should Turkey be my country at the first place? I am not born in Turkey, my parents and their parents are not born in Turkey. I have 0 ties to that country.

My country and my true fatherland is Kurdistan. Why? Because it is the land of my ancestors, that is why!

I don't want to discuss, hehe.

After the end of the Ottoman Era, when modern Turkey was found, Kurds were fooled big time. The idea and hidden agenda was is to assimilate Kurds and make them Turks. There were only 3.5 million Kurds 100 years ago, nowadays there are 50 million Kurds.

But they failed big time. There are even more Kurds than ever. Kurds will NEVER be assimilated. This is not really possible anymore. You can not assimilate a nation of 50 million people. So, their project failed big time. And now it is time to move on and it is time to devide Turkey in at least 6 pieces.

TIme to move on, time to break Turkey. And sooner or later it will happen. Why wait longer? Turkey is finished, big time. Their end is very near. Bye bye Turkey..
