Why does the idea of a "Slavic Union" with Poland seem so popular on this site?

I must say, I've never met any Poles or Polish-Americans in real life that possess this view. So the idea of a "Slavic Union" seems strange. I've read several posts by PF members who are very adamant about it (such as Crow). I find it interesting that you folks are so keen on building a union around a language group...

Are you for real? That’s all it is in your opinion? A language group? LOL

I am in favor of an even greater union based on a language group that would be called the Satum Union. It would comprise not only all the Slavic countries but also Iran, Afganistan, Tadjikistan, Ossetia, Armenia, Pakistan, and India.

That's all it is.

Do you see much in common with Sorbs and Poles, for instance?

It's a lingoethnic group. Some Slavs might date back to the early Slavic tribes but certainly not all.

Denying the common ancestry, and the shared cultural affinities, of the Slavs is what douchebags do.

Much more than any other western culture, if you read just some of the things Crow posted here on PF over the years you would know that.

Yes all, thats what makes them Slavs.

Haahaa.

You really do know absolutely nothing about Poland if you think that there's any support for "common ancestry" among Slavs. Perhaps pan-Slavic (usually Russians, who want their old influence back) types might support such theories, but every other ordinary Slav would be at pains to point out their separate ancestry.

As for "shared cultural affinities" - again, that's an American viewpoint. Those of us actually living here can tell the differences between Polish and other Slavic culture.

Typical non-educated polaczek comment.

So which Slavs are the ones who according to you do not share the common "lingoethnic" ancestry?

You really do know absolutely nothing about Poland if you think that there's any support for "common ancestry" among Slavs.

Common ancestry is not supported because its not a theory, its a scientific and antropologic fact and as such it is acknowledged.

If you meant there's no support for Panslavism, you're correct there's none but Panslavism says all Slavs should unite based on their ethnicity, that there is a common ethnic background to Slavs is a fact, the issue is what to do with it, majority of Poles think - nothing.

As for "shared cultural affinities" - again, that's an American viewpoint. Those of us actually living here can tell the differences between Polish and other Slavic culture.

Which does not change the fact that there are shared cultural affinities between all Slavis peoples.

Wrong.

They're shared as much as Anglo-Dutch affinities are.

The article you posted actually proves that quoting: According to eastern homeland theory, prior to becoming known to the Roman world, Slavic speaking tribes were part of the many multi-ethnic confederacies of Eurasia - such as the Sarmatian, Hun and Gothic empires

All Slavs share a common heritage.

According to the authors most Slavic populations have similar Y chromosome pools - R1a. They speculate that this similarity can be traced to an origin in the middle Dnieper basin of Ukraine during the Late Glacial Maximum 15 kya.[29]

Another quote.

Stop humiliating yourself posting articles that prove my point:)

Quite a bit more i'm afraid :) Linguistic similarities, cuisine, music, there's much much more in common between say Poles, Slovaks and Russians then between French, British and Dutch.

"according to the eastern homeland theory".

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Early_Slavs#Ethnogenesis

Seems to me that common ancestry is by no means proven - as can be seen by the total inability to determine where they came from.

I just quoted the article you posted:

You can't argue with genes, the common ancestry is proven and the fact that you dont like it doesnt change the fact that you were idiot enough to post something that disproves your opinion:))))

Most Slavic populations - therefore, not all Slavs have the same.

Yes, a cultural and linguistic heritage...

R1a is not exclusive to Slavic countries.

R1a is not exclusive to Slavic countries.

No but when its present in an ethnic group it decisively proves a common ancestry:)))

Of course they're not f*cking clones:))) But they do share a common ancestry.

If a Pole doesn't date back to the early Slavic tribes, that doesn't mean he/she is not Slavic.

Not necessarily. Also, according to modern science, we all have a common ancestry in Africa. :-)

All ethnic Slavs date back to the early Slavic tribes, thats what makes them Slavs, if a Pole doesnt date back to the early Slavic tribes via his geenes he's not a Slav.

Yes neccesarily thats how genetic mapping works in antropology, thats also how we suppose we came from Africa.

Clearly, English isn't your first language, otherwise you'd know that "most" means "not all".

Yes all, thats why all of them have the specific common genes straight from the article you posted :)))))

Piece of advice Dolphin, read the stuff you post it helps avoid humiliation when a nosy bugger like me who actually does read what he's given catches you on a massive blooper like that :)))

What percentage of Poles do date back to those times?

I didn't know that definition of Slav was set in stone officially.

Anthropologists do not state that two people with R1a must be part of the same ethnic group.

Genetically, i imagine some 95-99% WW2 took care of that.

I didn't know that definition of Slav was set in stone officially.

The Slavic people are an ethnic and linguistic branch of Indo-European peoples, living mainly in Eastern Europe and Central Europe.

Anthropologists do not state that two people with R1a must be part of the same ethnic group.

If the combination appears in the correct recurring order, yes they do.

See how many things you learned tonight?:))))

It does not change the fact that Slavs do enjoy a genetic common root:))))
