Origin of yDNA "I" Anatolia?
Now seriously After finding "I" sample in Neolithic Anatolian farmers. And earlier years finding "IJ*" on the Iranian Plateau.
Is this the ultimate proof that "I" is indeed connected to UHG/WHG like ancestory which some of it spred out in West Eurasia around Paleolithic. While the groups remaining at home in the Near East merged with "Basal Eurasian" during the Neolithic and became the Neolithic farmers and spred out with a second wave from Anatolia?
I am pretty convinced by this theory now and the reason why the Balkans are so diverse in "I" can be explained with the fact that it is like a refugium to the earliest out of Anatolia waves. And in Anatolia and near by regions it was mostly washed out by other incoming waves and the expansion of the brother yDNA "J"
