This theory is one of those ideas which is so dubious that I don’t like to debate it because it gives credibility to a theory that is on par with flat earth. However, I will continue to address this false narrative for so long as it persists.
The fact remains that AIT is a very recent theory. The fact that no one had ever heard of this idea before the 19th century, combined with the myriad negative political implications of such a theory make it highly suspect. In my view, the lack of evidence of advanced civilisation in the region the AIT claims “Aryans” originated in is sufficient to dismiss it without question. Moreover, this idea has many negative consequences, including:
- Complacency caused by leeching off previous accomplishments.
- Unrealistic expectations about social hierarchy.
- Friction with traditional scholars.
- Confusion about genetic lineages.
- Really annoying shilling.

I find it funny that historical revisionists are ready to discard entire schools of thought in favour of their particular narrative but utterly unwilling to accept the possibility that the mainstream studies that they cite may be subject to the exact same ideological bias they claim to oppose. This is why a lack of objectivity in science is a real problem. If you make false claims in science, you become weak. Weak because your ideology can’t make predictions, weak because your opinions can be readily proven false and weak because your worldview can’t be sustained without a backdrop of gaudy propaganda.
The people speaking against me are actually a great learning opportunity. The testimony of non-masters is simply not authoritative. It should be ignored or used to make memes with.
