      Brainstorming is wonderful. However --

      You need to read some of the scientific papers here on this site under files. The ones with Behar as the lead author make it pretty clear that the M378 SNP (Q1b) really is not that ancient among the Jewish people.

      Read the note from Bennett Greenspan I posted as well.

      In fact, the most recent science shows that the definitive Jewish markers may only be about 2,000 years old.

      Keep up the creative ideas.
