Question: New study claims all Europeans have mostly the same ancestors as a thousand years ago.

But some wonder whether we should question the study’s assumptions. What about all the people who just dropped in?

What’s remarkable about this is how closely everyone is related to each other. On a genealogical level, everyone in Europe traces back to nearly the same set of ancestors only a thousand years ago,” Coop said.

    Genetics is flawed because it demands a steady state or motion.
    The bible says how we are related. This 1000 year thing is missing that we separated at babel.
    Its our language groups that is the better guide.
    The reason for like genetics in europe would be because of like physical change to the area. We are white and so on only because of like influence from the climate., nOt because of like ancestors.
    Our genes would give a false story of relatedness if in like change it had like gene change.
    The same thing happens with animals . marsupials are the same creatures as elsewhere but have like marsupial genes because marsupial traits were the last thing to be adapted upon entering a area.
    A marsupial wolf is not related to a marsupial koala but is related to a placental wolf. Yet has genes in common with a koala because it had a common adaptation to marsupial traits.
    genetics as a trail is just a line of reasoning and has never been demonstrated to be a fact.
