Author Gene Matlock traces the ancient Turks, progenitors of all humankind, from their first home at the Arctic Circle.

Maybe I´m wrong, but from what I´ve read, according to the current state of science, mankind originates from the Africa {#emotions_dlg.unsure}

 

And if the ancestors of Turks were really from the Arctic Circle then probably most of them would look more like Scandinavians

I take it that what you call science is basically "western" science.

All western social sciences are posed to strenghten the status of Western societies, especially the power groups in those societies. Current Western social sciences promote supremacy of Western world. No wonder that any deviations from it - especially deviations like this one - will not be very popular among Western thinkers.

There are in fact branches of Turkic people that would look like any ethnic group on earth. Now this mystery remains unsolved and people often ask  "How come their eyes are not slanted, if the Turks of Turkia are Turkic ?". You can now figure out the reply.

It is called ORIENTALISM...There are good Western writers both for and also against orientalism.

"Orientalism has come to refer to a distinctive body of academic work, built up in the shadow of nineteenth-century colonial domination and continuing long after the demise of the formal structures of European empire, in which the ‘Orient’ and ‘Orientals’ are stereotyped, denied history and †agency, and represented in ways that reflect the continuing interests of the West in the East."
