¿You advise me? Just to avoid confusions I'd like to point:
- First of all, the data is not mine, it comes from Dodecad/Dienekes'. No myths emanating from me, and it's not rare they appear quite different from the average Spaniards...many other analysis support what you see here, so It's not casual.
- Second: I can assure you this Basques differ substantiallly from the 24 HGDP French Basques, 100% sure due to Castilian ancestry (recent or not, we cannot know). Then, it rather shows that actual Basques are not all the same, and some cline between different areas is perfectly noticeable. In another thread, there was a study showing variation from Navarra to Álava, being the last ones the most different from the average. Even the Northern Navarrese come out as Basque as Guipuzkoans, while people from Álava deviated towards main Spaniards. Wilhelm knows what I'm talking about.
- Third: Me, being almost fully Catalan and without knowing how to speak Basque, using the same pattern, I come out very similar to this 8 Basque samples. We could say I'm in the middle of this Catalans, Cantabrians, Valencians, and Argonese in one side, and this Basques in the other. There's no reason to think Dienekes' has an agenda to show me deviating towards them, implying an apreciable difference from the main Spaniards. Simply, it's what it is using the present system, which I admited in the other thread reports strange things though, but the difference between Iberians is the same as usual.
- Sumary: Basques (or people with substantial Basque ancestry) are genetically different, is what all analysis show and this one only confirms what it's known. If you don't want to believe it, well, you are free to do so of course, but the facts won't change.
