The Armenians and Ethiopians actually share DNA in large amounts. There are studies which prove there was a migration of Kushites into Eurasia and there were prehistoric back migrations from Asia into Africa.

“Notably, 62% of the Ethiopians fall in the first cluster, which encompasses the majority of the Jews, Norwegians and Armenians, indicating that placement of these individuals in a ‘Black’ cluster would be an inaccurate reflection of the genetic structure. Only 24% of the Ethiopians are placed in the cluster with the Bantu and most of the Afro-Caribbeans.”

(Passarino et al. 1998)

Armenians have also been known for at least 1000 years as the Amalekites of the bible which were present in North Africa and Southern Arabia and were said to have migrated north and settled in present day Armenia. The Armenian DNA Project found that we do in fact carry large amounts of Haplogroups J1 and J2 along with the R1B1A

Armenians and dark skinned north-Africans most likely birthed the entire middle east as we know it today.

“Henry Field suggested that Arabia’s current ethnography is the result of the mixing of two distinct basal stocks: The dolichocephalic (long-headed), dark-skinned Mediteranean/Eur-African and the brachycephalic (round-headed) fair-skinned Armenoid. See his “Ancient and Modern Inhabitants of Arabia,” The Open Court 46 (1932): 854 [art.=847-869]. See also Bertram Thomas, “Racial Origin of the Arabs,” in idem, The Arabs: The life-story of a People who have left their deep impress on the world (London: Thorton Butterworth Ltd., 1937) 353-359; C.G. Seligman, “The Physical Characters of the Arabs,” Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland 47 (1917): 214-237.”

The Amhara seem to be more connected to Armenians than the other racial groups in Ethiopia.

“There is a considerable mass of evidence to show that there was a very close resemblance between the proto-Egyptians and the Arabs before either became intermingled with Armenoid racial elements.” Elliot Smith p. 54 The Ancient Egyptians and the Origins of Civilization, p.61 2007, earliest publication 1923.”

  1. They are such a dark complexioned tribe of whites to be far from the Greco-Italian tribes next to the Mediterranean.

    1. Ethiopians are now White? LMAO I’m sure this comes from someone who classifies Nicki Minaj as “black” while calling east africans “Caucasians” and “Mixed breeds”.

  2. This manipulative post was a comment on Armenian site. How can the skinniest and shortest people in africa be the ancestors of tough and hairy people of Caucasus? Armenians are closer related to Cheches and Turks. This story doesn’t even make sense.

    1. Julu those are all stereotypes i’m sure when you trace it back through evidence and proof you’ll see the similarities

    2. Lmao turks and chechen are mixtures of armenians arabs and mongols go do research before you talk armenians date back 3000bc before turks and chechens existed

    3. Turks are rooted from ancient Anatolia, the origin of Neolithic farmers. Part of these farmers colonized Europe sometime before 7,000 years and mixed with the Mesolithic Europe to form the current Sardians. Later, the other part back-migrated to the Horn of Africa and mixed with the indigenious Nilotic like people to form a perfect blend of modern Horners. I’m NOT talking about skin colors but refer recent genetic studies like this ones. IMO, it is no wonder if part of ancient Greek, Turk, Armen, Arabs is seen in modern Ethiopians…

    4. Even more doesn’t make sense because you’re a pyramid head. You grabbed a Mongolian nomadic tribal system in turks to relate them with Armenians, while Armenians were Armenians in Armenia for 5000 years and populated eastern Anatolia (present day turkey) hence then, while turks flooded into Anatolia in 11th century BC. Your way of thinking tells me that you’ve escaped from iron-wrought cage. How did that happen? As for chechens they too are nomadic exclave of central Asian nations, namely in Turkmen and Tajik.

      1. well said. Armenians were in Armenian highlands before any turk or Chechen existed on those lands. The Seljuk turks, first among Turkish tribes arrived into Armenian lands around 10-11 centuries AD. Pretty recent. The birth of the Armenian nation is around
        BC. Go check your facts before your desire to represent central asian speaking turks to have European origin. They stole everything on their way, including Armenian DNA by force. Cant escape from truth.

    5. Even more doesn’t make sense because you’re a pyramid head. You grabbed a Mongolian nomadic tribal system in turks to relate them with Armenians, while Armenians were Armenians in Armenia for 5000 years and populated eastern Anatolia (present day turkey) hence then, while turks flooded into Anatolia in 11th century BC. Your way of thinking tells me that you’ve escaped from iron-wrought cage. How did that happen? Only 20% of turkish population comprises of genuine (non turkification) turks, known as oghuz Turks from Central Asia. With current admixture of Turkish population you’re not going to have a precise DNA results due to the fact that most DNA tests taken from present day Turkish population do not belong to native Turks but rather they belong to Armenians, Greeks, Kurds, Assyrians, Syrians etc. and these natives are the native inhabitants of ancient Anatolia. Turks migrated to Anatolia in 11th century BC.

      that’s why when DNA test is ran on Turkish population it shows the general population of the turkey and different ethnic mixtures. And of course Turks in the meantime benefit from the mainstream of the native Anatolian population. They even claim that hittites and akkadians are their ancestors. They throw everything out there to see what sticks.

  3. I don’t think we came out of Africa. I think we were all over the world and other types came from somewhere else, even if its just from the north. Saisiyat of Taiwan hold festival every year to commemorate the indigenous little black people that they exterminated. But St Patrick himself is celebrated for doing the same thing.

  4. The Garden of Eden lies on the Continent of Africa,Civilization began in Africa,reading and research is fundamental,we all originated from Adam and Eve.We are all related

  5. Our alphabet is similar to Ethiopians! 🙂 our culture has a heavy middle eastern influence to it! 🙂 they confirmed that hummus comes from Egypt. .and we eat hummus. I have Armenian ancestry 50% and a “white” American mother and I have to tell you guys I am very dark very dark brown hair almost black and olive bronze skin..people mistake me for an ” arab” regularly. .I give thanks to my Armenian side I look ethnic dark..and not like my mom’s pale white American side no culture..no disrespect but… we are ETHNIC people!!! 🙂 ALL my Armenian side is very very dark! !!.. and so am I ..and you know what??.. I love it!.. 🙂

  6. Not that much of a surprise. Ethiopians are a mix of all kinds of people. Ancestors of most Ethiopians are partly from Arabia, the Sabaean families. Ethiopia and Armenia have been trading since 1st century AD. Armenia became the first Christian state in 301 AD, Ethiopia was the second Christian state in 324 AD, both Orthodox christian states. There has been a considerable Armenian population since pre 1900s, and additionally Haile Selassie I adopted 40 Armenian children (“arba lijoch”). There has been this strange connection to Armenians in Ethiopia more so than any other Euro-Asian country. I knew an Armenian Ethiopian growing up, I think we are pretty similar, not surprised there is genetic proof to back it up! ?

    1. True. The King of Armenia in the 2nd Century declared all Armenians will become Christians (the king could do that at the time, apparently), and said to denote this, all Armenians will add the last three letters from the word “Christian” to their names, hence what we have today. Some have changed from “ian” to “yan”, probably the Russian-Armenians of today.

  7. The tradition of Amalekites in Armenia has to do with the coming of Nimrod and the Nabataeans, i.e. the original Aramaeans who had settled in Jordan, Syria and Mesopotamia. Aram is a place in Hadramaut in Arab tradition. Armin was by tradition a grandson of Kaush -Melekh, otherwise according to medieval texts was Nimrod son of Cush or “Namrat” or “Numayr ibn Cassit” a historical tribe from the Nejd in Central Arabia and living in the Nabataean kingdom related to the present day Kab or Chab (Tsiab) tribes in Mesopotamia. The other name for these people was Amarat or “Amorites”. These Kab or Chub came from the same group as the Banu Rabi’a (Rabbeans?), Beni Amir bin Zaza, Wa’il ibn Cassit, Taghlib and other Najd people who came to be called Amorites and Ishmaelites. They are described as tall muscular people who possessed the complexion of Abyssinians (according to Rawlinson), but they have little to do with why the Amhara have so much Near Eastern blood. That has more to do with later contacts during the Christian era. Parthian merchants and other Scythic people also settled along the South Arabian coasts and influenced the people of the Horn as well right before and after the Christian era.

    Nimrod came to be known as Kaush Malakh or King Kush or Kavus in Iran as well. His son Kobad was traditionally the father of Armin, thus al Masudi writes –
    “ The Nabathaeans say that Iran was theirs, that the country belonged to them, and that they once possessed it, that their kings were the Nimrods, of whom was the Nimrod in the time of Abraham and that Nimrod was the name of their kings;” that Iran was named from them, Arian” al-Masudi (Pusey, Philip Edward, 1884,2005 p. 365)

    “They had their homes in Babylonia, and their first king was Nimrod I, that is, the Great. They were known as Kaldan (Chaldeans), Kasdan (Kasdites), Janban, Jaramiqa, Kutharun, and Kan’anun; these were Nabataeans who constructed buildings, founded cities, dug canals, planted trees,…They were all Sabeans who worshiped stars and idols” Al Dimashqi (Zakeri, Mohsen, Sassanid Soldiers in Early Muslim Society, 1995, p. 148). Al Dimashqi (14th century) said the word “Nabit” meant black, Ibn Nadim and others described the Nabataeans as black.

    So much for a people without a civilization. ; )
