Globalization....on the skids 1876
If you price yourself out, you lose the tariff altogether. Transit points -particularly in water starved arabia never had the means to grow their own food. They had to let trade continue -no matter whether or not they were converted to Islam.
hmm -it looks like that is what happened to the city of Beiruit. The mullahs pumped the adrenalin and ruined a secular city.

You must mean the clergy inhibited free thinking. Yes they did (which is why the mid-east is backward) -but that is tangential to closing down the silk route. Even the church in Rome imprisoned Galileo and other thinkers lest their free thinking dilute their powers. Religious leaders are like politicians. Their survival depends on how much esteem they are held upto by society -and contradicting the bible or any other religious book would dilute their power.

Thanx for a reasonable reply with so many facts. A couple others... One is that melanin is on the same strand of DNA as adrenalin and seratonin. And while...
It must have been a nomadic tribe -but there is something called as a genetic marker which identifies the travails of humans out of africa. You can use this scientific evidence to disprove-confirm widely held theories of human migration. This website contains a lot of scientific evidence.
Here is an article saying that all humans descended from a single set of biological parents in africa.
Once you accept that race is a political and not a scientific differentiator, the question of being diverse doesn't arise coz the genetic difference between 2 different looking people isn't significant in any sense of the word. You can be a projgeny of 2 white skinend people, and when you live in a place that provides lots of sun tan, you automatically end up acquiring a tan similar to people you never inter-mixed with. The genetic makeup is 99.99% identical with or without the tanlines.
Ah -now we are on the same page. What is supposed to be a bloodline is actually common culture. Things like skin colour, epicathic folds etc.. are superficial identifiers without much scientific weightage.
Here is a link for you wrt anglo saxons.
Marriage and monogamy are long-standing rituals amongst Indians. Note that while our features may not be in line with latin speaking people in europe, the culture was imposed on previous settlers and later arrivals integrated into the caste system and the culture of Indo-aryans. The genetic makeup underwent modifications -but things like culture, language, script etc didn't undergo much change.
I know from mythology that the chariot was widely used by our ancestors. Maybe they invented the chariot and put the cart before the horse -and that helped conquer lands, and spread their genes-culture-language coz a chariot led army has mobility and can consequently defeat legions of foot soldiers.
But the genetic evidence indicates that men were fair skinned and women were probably native to the land. The caste system of India generally allows lower-caste women to marry up the hierarchy - but it is difficult for lower-caste men to marry upper caste women. It might indicate a shortage of women amongst the invading indo-aryan tribes and the fact that men play a dominant role in perpetuating customs-traditions in society -and the invaders wanted their culture to be pre-dominant over the subcontinent. Here is a link to the evidence.
Further, the genographic project says that there is a genetic market (M9) which is present in as high amounts as 35-40% in N. India, 5-10% in S. India, 5-10% in Eastern Iran -less in W Iran, and 35-40% in Czechoslovakia (hope I spelled it right). Its not present in the region in between -implying that some tribe moved a real long distance to settle down in India.
