I haven't paid attention to the cold countries but the top 10 hottest country list you got is wrong.

Hottest recorded temperature at 1 point was in Libya.
But hottest inhabited place in the world is Ethiopia in a place called (dallol).
A British science team even made a documentary about it 3-4 years ago.

I heard that an Iranian desert is the hottest place on earth with typical temperature heights of 72 degree Celsius.

Yes I heard about that iranian dessert, but it is not all year round.

Dallol, Ethiopia is made official by scientist because it is baking all year round ( no winter, hardly any rain just volcanoes erupting)

Read this its from the bbc

It's interesting how the very warmest countriest on that list are known for producing lineages of light-skinned people aswell.

Maybe because skin colour has more to do with UV -Rays and not the actual temprature of certain place.

Sorry, Yep you are right because certain places in ethiopia is really cold.

The highest average annual mean temperature would be djibouti.
Its a tiny country that forms part of the afar triangle which Dallol ( the hottest official place annualy) is part off.

I'm not a physicist, but UV irradiation, if not absolutely, usually parallels IR light reception on a mondial scale and therefore heat, unless there are geographical factors at play influencing temparature regionally or locally. Coming to think of that, it surprises me that the highest temparature in Libya was not recorded near the volcanic fields in mid-Libya due to the reduced albedo effect because of the darker soil there(which should retain heat).

Proto-Arabs have Northern Neolithic ancestry from the cool Caucasus/Anatolia area (IJ lineage originated there).

Been to Dallol Ethiopia, its in the Ogaden (somali zone)

But its nowhere near as hot as Djibouti's lake assal region IMO.

Its not just djibouti...its the same in Somaliland, even within sub-clans.

The Iessa-Muuse and Garxajis from the coastal regions (berbera, zeila, etc) in the north are darker, some quite black skinned compared to their clanmates in the haud regions and the highlands towards Ethiopia...Many of the Gadabursi and Isaaq folk near Jigjiga had a cafe-au-lait colour to them, infact the majority were lighter skinned than myself.

Yeh I heard about the whole northern part of the Horn (afar regions and the northern somali clans ) live in the hottest places on earth all year round. They are also some of the darkest people on earth along side the south sudan people.

Not really. First of all it takes thousands of years for skin tone change and Djibouti was not inhabited continuously. Most of the present inhabitants come recently from Ethiopia and Somalia after the camel was introduced there (merely 2 kya).

The dromedary was domesticated in arabia sometime around 3,000 BC...it was introduced in the Horn of Africa about 2,000 years later (still, a full millenia before its emergence in Egypt and NW Africa)

I think Djibouti/Afar region of Ethiopia has been continuosly inhabited, and I mean from Hominid species, to modern day times, and would say that its the proper homeland of homo sapiens sapiens.

LE Cushitic speakers (which includes Oromo, Afar, and Somali) are a relatively recent group from the highlands of Southeastern Ethiopia.

Read this study:
http://wisc.academia.edu/HerbertLewis/Papers/188960/The_Origins_of_the_Galla_and_Somali

Areas like Djibouti and the Afar depression were mostly uninhabited until recently.

Somalis from Djibouti are know to be couple of shades darker than Southern somalis because they live officially near and around the hottest place on earth ( Afar deppresion ). This darkness is not permenant but rather it's a strong tan.

Also somalis and infact all Cushitic speakers who are known to carry E-v32 as majority are believed to have come from the North (Sudan). Theire migration was coastal (meaning they migrated following the red sea down wards).

Now for this to happen they must have been in djibouti first before the highlands. I aslo believe that somalis would not have left the highlands if they knew how fertile it was.

..maybe like sun too, as if these tiny beings loved sunlight so much, they imitated the radiating sun, created their own architecture of sun worship.

India has huge diversity, which is why it could come close to the coldest countries as well,because of the himalayas.
And one should look at average annual temperatures rather than just extremes.
