Brit-Am is concerned with finding where the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel went to.
We believe they are now concentrated amongst Western Peoples.
We have proofs from Scripture, Rabbinical Sources, Linguistics, Mythology,
History, and other disciplines.
Modern scholars and historians often refer to DNA findings.
In fact DNA proofs are considered the best possible when examining the
migrations and interconnections between peoples.
Historical proofs may be mistaken or give disproportionate importance or lack of
it to the migrations and emigrations of different peoples. In fact important
demographic changes are known to have taken place in Europe that historical
sources hardly even refer to. This is true even for fairly recent times, from an
historical point of view.
We also use DNA and refer to DNA findings. DNA however only partly substantiates
We have published articles on this matter.
We also put out a regular DNA news update feature.
Brit-Am DNA and Anthropology
So far 92 issues of BAMAD have gone out.
Nearly every issue contains some point or other from DNA findings that
strengthen Brit-Am findings concerning the Ten Tribes of Israel.
Nevertheless, it needs to be admitted and kept firmly in mind that,
Many questions and doubts (against Brit-Am) are raised by DNA alongside some
If serious proven contradictions did exist we would acknowledge them and deal
The problem is that both Y(male transmitted) DNA and Mt(female transmitted) DNA
are influenced by environmental factors. This is in addition to their being
transmitted by heredity.
The article below shows that DNA changes are determined by the environment after
which those same changes are transmitted through heredity.
2. The Applicability of DNA Findings.
Answer to Question from Maria.
...where is this info from below??
Brit-Am Anthropology and
I think that I might have told you ...that I worked with Dr. Gerald Schroeder
and that my Brother is a geneticist. I think (It is my opinion) that there is
something to the DNA that makes us TO BECOME a higher being. (The RIB of THE
ADAM... was Deoxyribonucleic acid=DNA...there is the RIB!!)

by Bert Thompson, Ph.D.
Dr. Gerald Schroeder is an Orthodox Jewish scientist who seeks to reconcile
conventional evolutionary scientific doctrines with Biblical and Rabbinical
sources. He has written several books, numerous articles, frequently lectures,
and is well-known and highly popular. His attitude is a legitimate one and of
We personally however are reserved about this. We take a more literal
"Fundamentalist" type approach, as do many Orthodox Jews.
The evolutionists alignment with DNA is somewhat paradoxical.
They in effect deny the effects of environment that have already been proven
whereas we accept them and believe their influence is much more expansive than
has been acknowledged.
It would seem the evolutionists believe in evolution and adaptation to
environment in theory only!
Our understanding concerning DNA is the same as that regarding evolution as
explained by Lee M. Spetner (Not By Chance!: The Fall of Neo-Darwinian Theory
From An Examination Of Information And Randomness In Evolution, by Lee M.
Spetner, PhD., 1996, Jerusalem, Israel)

#3. The Genetic Change model.
L.M. Spetner helps explain how 2 groups of people of the same ancestry could
vary in some respects (color or what not) if separated for some time and subject
to different influences.
This is NOT evolution but adaptation to environment within limits according to
inbuilt possibilities of the genetic structure.
Once the changes take effect (according to the process known as the Victor
Jollis "Dauer" effect model as
described by Spetner) they remain and are hereditary until the next major change
This is also our approach to DNA:
DNA explains differences. DNA is inherited; DNA can change.
We are looking for some kind of rule of thumb to explain the when and how of
Regarding the mtDNA we know now that mtDNA is influenced by the environment.
#4. Human mtDNA
subject to selection by climate?
If someone has a particular type of mtDNA say for example, a Jew whose
grandmother came from Yemen and his mtDNA was pre-HV. This is associated
specifically with the Arabian Peninsula and its neighborhood though it is
closely related to mtDNA HV, mtDNA H, mtDNA V as is found throughout Europe.
Concerning the person in question,
What does this mean?
There are 2 possibilities.
(a) His mother on her mothers side is descended from people (females) in the
Arabian Peninsula who converted to Judaism. Indeed it happened in the past that
groups in Arabia (before Mohammed) did convert to Judaism.
(b) His mother is descended from Israelites from the Land of Israel who came to
the Arabian Peninsula and whose mtDNA was affected by the environment. Once the
mtDNA had taken place it was transmitted by hereditary.
OK. These conclusions regarding mtDNA would NOWADAYS be in practice acceptable
to most leading DNA geneticists.
We would like to be more certain as to when and how the changes take place.
As for the Y (male transmitted) DNA.
We would say that what applies to mtDNA ALSO applies to YDNA.
Mainstream DNA doctrine would not as yet agree with us on this but who knows?
In practical terms we would say it means the following:
My own unknown male ancestor came from an area where his type of R1b (R-M222) is
prominent. This is the Clan of Nial. Comparison with the results of others gave
the nearest correspondences to North Ireland.
See Map and illustration:
Since the clan of Nial was quite famous and ruled over Ireland and western
Scotland at some stage or other (and whose peoples are not easy to rule over)
this is quite an honorable result.
On the other hand ca. 12% of the population of Ireland and ca. 20% of the
males of Donegal and Sligo in North Ireland have the same DNA. Perhaps it
is the effect of climate, diet, or something else and the overlap with the Neil
Clan a simple coincidence?
3. Conquests of the Long-Legged Hawaiian
Cane Toad; A Biological Example.
Let us take an example from the animal kingdom.
#3. Cane Toads Prove Brit-Am Point?
This article was originally taken from a Web Site dedicated to PROVING (or
attempting to prove) the false Theory of Evolution. To our mind its proves the
opposite. Indeed, the article appears to have been removed. Perhaps the
Darwinian enthusiast realized his mistake?
Anyway, the article relates how,
### The Hawaiian cane toad is a classic
case of an invasive species, and its genetics have long been a subject of study
for those interested in the spread of species into new habitat.
That's why it's so interesting to me that a new study in
has shown morphological differences (LiveScience)
between the initial wave of toads and later populations. The fastest colonizers
have the longest legs:
From the 1940s through the 1960s, the toads were invading at a rate of about 6
miles per year; now they're taking over at a rate of about 30 miles a year.
To find out why the toads are spreading so fast, researchers stationed
themselves about 40 miles east of Australia's port city of Darwin, in a region
where the cane toads had not yet spread.
When the toads arrived, the researchers found that those in the vanguard of the
invasion had legs that were up to 6 percent longer than average; shorter-legged
stragglers followed. The study showed that newer populations of toads tended to
have longer legs than those in long-established populations.
These are BIG toads, by the way --
weighing up to 2 kg. Leg length does lead to faster dispersal:
Of course, the idea that longer-legged toads would move faster and colonize more
quickly makes perfect sense.
The mystery is: Why do leg lengths subsequently decline? ###
In other words when the Hawaiian toads invade an area the population gives rise
to many more specimens with longer legs.
The longer legged specimens are the offspring of both longer-legged parents and
Longer legs are needed when occupying a new area. This helps them move faster
and facilitates their conquest. After they are settled in the toads go back to
breeding shorter legs.
They therefore have an inbuilt adaptation apparatus that works throughout their
There is a genetic trigger that over the whole community goes on and off
according to need.
DNA and genetics are synonymous.
Every physical inherited trait is controlled by DNA.
If inherited physical traits change there must have been a change in the DNA.
The theoretical explanation exists justifying belief from known biological
examples that YDNA changes according to environmental factors.
4. Conclusion. Three Cheers for Brit-Am!
It is now accepted that MtDNA is so influenced but at what rate and when and how
is not certain.
More information is needed concerning both mtDNA and YDNA and how the
environment affects them.
At all events, indications are that Brit-Am is on the right track.
Regarding DNA it cannot be said we are against it.
We believe in it
We take an interest in it.
We try to follow it.
We use it to make historical points etc.
We just believe that its applicability is limited.
We want to know, How Limited?
I hope this helps.
