How powerful was ancient Kush?

This thread is cringe, let's not co-opt other people's history here. The ancient Kushites where most likely Cushitic speakers but their direct descendants are people like the Shaigiya tribe whose tribal territory is Meroe. The Kushites language shifted from Cushitic to Nilo-Saharan to Arabic.
Its ok we can land of punt there is always plan B

We aren't Cushites?
 
There's no evidence of that.
The Puntites are believed to have been ancient Somalis who traded myrrh, spices, gold, ebony, short-horned cattle, ivory and frankincense with the Ancient Egyptians and ancient Mesopotamia through their commercial ports.

Somalis migrated to Somalia. Egyptians were visiting Punt before Somalis got there.
BS. Prove it

Somalis did not migrate to the horn. They have always been there or migrated at the same time egypt was built.

The ancient egyptians claimed they migrated from the land of punt. Herodotus's account which is always conveniently ignored also states they were sent to colonise the nile river down stream in egypt and came from punt where they lived with their cousins (ancient somalis).

Somali E-M78 (Darood, Hawiye, some Isaaq) TMRCA was estimated to be 4000 years ago and T-M184 (Dir and some Isaaq) TMRCA was 2000 years ago

Look at the time period when Hatshepsut, Sahure, Mentuhotep III, etc. were visiting Punt.


Somalis didn't even exist lol

The Puntites were Lowland East Cushitic people and their descendants are the Somali, Afar and Saho. The land of Punt stretched from Eritrea (Massawa) in the north to Somaliland and Puntland in the south.

The mummified baboons exported to ancient Egypt came from this area.

Your theory doesn't hold up though.

Even if we conquered the land afterwards, we still have the dna of the assimilated natives.

However your theory is bs, we have been in the horn for atleast ten thousand years.

When we start excavating ancient graves we will most likely match their genome.

The earliest male ancestors of the 2 Somali lineages are 3000 and 2000 years ago. Egyptians were visiting before that.

Edit: I meant 4000 and 2000 years ago.
I think that the Y chromosome change over time, the mutation happens constantly, with every major mutation the scientists give it its own subgroup like the Somali HG E-V32
