    Any time you want to compare how seriously you and I are taken by anybody who knows anything about DNA and genetic genealogy, I'll refer you and anyone who's interested to this whopper you posted earlier today - http://forums.familytreedna.com/show...2&postcount=22.

    Who can take someone seriously who insists that a man's yDNA haplogroup is determined by the mother, as you did in that post!

    When I wrote a post about R1b being linked to the Neolithic in western Europe some people got very upset. Why?

    If someone believes that every single Celt man is P312, which is patently false, I think they would write that. The statement merely means that P312 is the predominant subclade found among modern Celtic populations, which is certainly true.

    Either you're being too literal in interpreting what others write or you're deliberately misrepresenting what others write (straw man argument) to suit your argument. Now that you've been set straight about the meaning of "Celtic haplogroup," I trust you won't claim that some people believe it's the only haplogroup found among Celtic men. Right?

    I never said the Celts belonged to a single subclade, in fact i dont recall any who did actually state such a thing.

    Different Celtic groups will have different Y-chromosome and mtDNA haplogroups and subclades within them.

    However, this study is not proof of that as it focuses on autosomal DNA

    "According to the data, those of Celtic ancestry in Scotland and Cornwall are more similar to the English than they are to other Celtic groups.

    The study also describes distinct genetic differences across the UK, which reflect regional identities.

    And it shows that the invading Anglo Saxons did not wipe out the Britons of 1,500 years ago, but mixed with them."
    I think that this is proof that the Celts belonged to multiple haplogroups.

    Why are they not testing more ancient remains in the Isles?!!! Do they not want to know about the past? They are way behind the rest of the world.
    They must just care about the unique genetics that make up today's British people, ignoring the past and ignoring the genetics of other people on the British Isles.
