    Yes, I've since learned that my speculation was incorrect. Marsupials originated in North America, spread to South America and reached Australia via Antarctica before the complete break up of...

    Kangaroos? Maybe that's how humans discovered Australia 50,000 years ago, they simply followed the kangaroos from Africa.
  3. In New Zealand daylight saving starts in...

    In New Zealand daylight saving starts in September and ends in April. I try to avoid even the slight circadian misalignment (identified in this paper) by simply ignoring DST. That is, when the clocks...
  4. I found my AncestryDNA ethnicity results to be...

    I found my AncestryDNA ethnicity results to be reasonably accurate, if I allow for a plus or minus 5% margin of error. When I compared those results with the known ethnic background of my ancestors,...
  5. The common ancestor theory is a mathematical...

    The common ancestor theory is a mathematical model that depends on assumptions made about exogamy (marrying outside your village, if you like). If your village was so endogamous that no one ever...

    As I understand this paper, there were three possible populations (sub-species?) of Denisovans by 50kya:

    D1) Homo denisova altaiensis (Siberia, Tibet and probably elsewhere in continental East...

    I suggest trying a tool called snpTracker at the scaledinnovation.com website. If you enter a SNP that identifies a haplogroup, snpTracker will show a map of its likely place of origin, a likely time...

    Or ancestral to later neanderthals? The skull was described as quite unlike modern homo sapiens.

    Keep checking back on your Big Y results. After the initial assignment of a terminal SNP, FTDNA does a manual review that can lead to a new terminal SNP further downstream. That happened to me a few...

    I am O rh neg. My Y haplogroup is R1b-L21 (DF13, DF5, terminal SNP BY154246). My mtDNA is J1c3b2.
  11. I haven't seen any evidence that either...

    I haven't seen any evidence that either Neanderthals or Denisovans carried any Basal Eurasion. Surely Basal Eurasian was originally "pure" Homo Sapiens Sapiens, without admixture. It seems more...

    I first tested with 23andMe and the results included a Y haplogroup of R1b-L21 and mtDNA haplogroup of J1c3. I uploaded my data from 23andMe to GEDmatch, MyHeritage, FTDNA, Genomelink, WeGene,...

    A Neolithic culture 16,000 years ago? Surely that would make Jomon the earliest Neolithic culture in the world.

    Yes, and we are still apes today. Chimps are more closely related to humans than they are to gorillas, and gorillas are more closely related to humans than they are to orang utans. How then can...

    True, in the sense that all extant languages have been evolving for the same length of time. In the same way, no living species can be called older than another because all have been evolving for the...

    100% European probably means that 500 years ago your ancestors were living in Europe. Most DNA companies base their ethnic categories on places of ancestral origin prior to the era of European...

    Thanks for this. I interpreted the paper as saying that the tree is actually less muddied now because their comparative study of hand morphology showed that early hominin hands were more similar to...

    It's strange that an academic paper would cite Thor Heyerdahl as an authority. To quote from his Wikipedia page:

    "This [Odin] project generated harsh criticism and accusations of pseudoscience...

    Thanks Angela for posting those other pieces by Albinoni. Even leaving aside the disputed adagio, Albinoni deserves to be on any list of baroque composers.

    The "Adagio in G Minor" is a glorious piece, but the modern consensus is that it's not by Albinoni, even though many recordings attribute it to Albinoni.

    How large do you think the population of Britain was in the 3rd millennium BC? The estimate of demographers is that the population of the British Isles increased from around 25,000 people in 3000 BC...
