Could this not be due to something being wrong with the scientific methodology?
Please, don't be too aggressive.I am just trying to make a sound argument here.
Almost anything is possible, but it is very, very, very unlikely that Y-Adam and M-Eve lived at the same time.
In addition, the evidence does not mean that either was the only one of their sex at the time.
Finally, all the evidence points to bottleneck events where larger populations were reduced as opposed to founder populations.
Fine.My point is, if we go further up the line, there will be another person who will be the great, great, great, ...... great, grandfather of YcA No?
There will be fathers and likely brothers and uncles and best friends and barely knows and heard of thems. There were sisters and aunts and cousins and kissin cousins and third cousins twice removed.
It's really unlikely there was a first Adam, a first Eve or even a first human.
Why is it we don't have the evidence for any of the other members of this population? I mean why is it that we do not have more markers that can be traced to someone who lived during ME's time?
People have answered that time after time after time, but I will try once more.
ME looks at only one factor, one small factor in our genetic makeup.
It deals only with our mitochondrial lineage.
A few things about ME and her time. She had a mother who was still living, twenty six maiden sisters, one hundred and thirty two maiden aunts and six hundred and thirty maiden great aunts.
She also had twenty nine horny brothers, sixteen horny cousins and a blue brazillion kissin cousins.
The all lived in a big tent with a thick mattress on the floor.
Eve enjoyed life greatly. Her brothers enjoyed life greatly. Her cousins and kissin cousins enjoyed life greatly.
Her momma drew cave paintings showing Eve and her brothers and her cousins and her kissin cousins and charged three cowry shells for folk to dl them.
Eve's sisters and aunts had a booming business singing panties "Love and Kisses Eve" and selling them by the sea shore.
It was the best of times but often Eve secretly wished that her sisters and aunts weren't so butt ugly.
Are you with me so far?
Edited by jar,
Yes. What happened next?
So a test.
Were there other humans alive at the time of ME?
