Re: What differentiates human prototypes from alleged ancestry

I don't see the relevance of "justice" to this topic, but it's your topic, and you brought it up... Well, I think I would agree with you here: "there is no justice other than that of the world." Do you have a problem with that? (I guess that would have to be another topic.)

However, inside a Court house, even justice of this world does not apply belief to the most current and trivial things;

Instead, the justice only says that a person had descendants when evidence is found that there was a son or a daughter.

"I am not a lawyer," and I'm not a biologist either, but it seems entirely sensible to expect that DNA testing would work to establish whether or not two individuals were related as grandfather and grandson, or even great-grandfather and great-grandson, without having access to DNA samples from the intermediate generation(s). It's in the nature of the evidence that these relationships can be established with the same certainty as the father-son case.

I haven't tried to spend the few minutes of web research that would be needed to check into that question -- perhaps one of the others here knows the answer already from personal experience with the research involved. (Presumably there are differing constraints on tracking paternal versus maternal descendant relations, but at the level of population studies, these things do not impede the clarity of the evidence.)

Let's get rid of the BELIEVING!

That would be an admirable goal indeed. In order to achieve it, you also have to get rid of the dogmatic denial of evidence, and abandon the silly notion that some "revelatory" text written thousands of years ago is "inerrant".

autotelic adj. (of an entity or event) having within itself the purpose of its existence or happening.
