DNA testing by universities and other research facilities sure are "finding"
lots of interesting information !
One comment made is that we are the first generation in the world where
"POWER" does not equate with "many progenity."
this is where i draw the line . this is where scientists allow there egos
to reign free.
How do they know all these people come from one man they dont. What they
are doing is embellishing the findings of a common ydna. this story attracts
more attention then the probable answers.which are
in the last migration or the one that really did populate ireland say 10
men and 10 women settled in towns. Probably the settlers were related and
came from the same place. lets say
6 are brothers or cousins. as they started farms and cities sons ond
daughters started other villages and did the same. Ireland didnt have oklahoma rush
with a starting line.
If these settlers did this then a vast majority of the future Irish
population would be the same ydna. i run 10 projects . 4 are surnames based on
names. the other 6 are geographical. they are looking for the migration pattern.
One is the frosinone project my wifes people came from san danato frosinone
italy . four square blocks in brighton known as buggs village were populated
by people fron san danato. one town to one one 4 sq block area. eventually
they spread into newton and watertown. so i have a frosinone project and
brighton /newton. to track this movement. Also in 1909 after the Chelsea fire a high
portion of the Jewish and Irish population moved to yankee Brookline,newton.
this is also a target of the brighton project.
these migrations and the reg. people who lived there .
We could say one man is responsible for a common ydna in say chelsea or
but it doesnt make sense since we are close to this time period.I dont think
it can be transfered to any population 1000 - 10000 years ago.
That why the science needs not to be used to get headlines. If they
discovered this 10 men and named them the x group.Do you think a headline like
Scientists discover most fertile Irish male group X
I dont think so.
