Ancient blue eyed people were dark

Well the ole’ Grand Canyon is actually just a baby. Before now it was generally believed to have formed 70 million years ago. However, a new study has concluded that it’s closer to 6 million years old. This according to a new study published in the journal Nature Geoscience.

Does anyone remember the Brady Bunch episode where they went to the Grand Canyon? Back then no one seemed to really care about how old anything was. Just that it was a nutty and fun place.

I think a few of the Brady’s had blue eyes which means they shared a common ancestor about 7000 years ago. Before now it was believed that blue eyes and light skin developed at the same time. Well a new unearthing of DNA found in the remains of a dude who lived in the Cantabrian Mountains in Spain about 7000 years ago shows that people had blue eyes but dark skin.

The DNA study was performed by the Institute of Evolutionary Biology in Barcelona. I’m certain those guys with the blue eyes and dark skin did well with the ladies.

Speaking of pretty ladies with blue eyes from thousands of years ago, have you ever heard of the “Beauty of Loulan” aka the Tarim Mummies? She was a gorgeous blue eyed woman who ended up in China of all places.

I’ve often wondered what it would be like to be able to get into a time machine and try and talk to her.
