Look at how morons begin working: the Fall of the Dritte Reich!

Basal Eurasian was more or less seen as a signal of early Near Eastern farmers. It was based largely on mtDNA that I dis agreed with this. The non-U5 mtDNA in European farmers had distant not recent relatives in the MIddle Easts which doesn't work the idea of a single basal-rich early farmer population.
Because of the Neolithic-Mesolithic discontinuation in Europe I think people underestimated how connected modern people are to Mesolithic HGs.
The primary pieces of our junk DNA, the kind used for determining ancestry, might have been around in the Mesolithic. How much of modern West Eurasian's junk DNA is a mix up of multiple Mesolithic pops vs genetic drift that happened after the Mesolithic?
I understand Drift can make important changes in a short period of time. Is, ratio of ancestry from WHG, ANE, CHG, Natufian, EEF, etc. more significant to genetic diversity in West Eurasia than drift aquired after the Mesolithic? Is there a way to objectivly test this?
This opens the possibilities that in some place of the world there is genetic continuation going back 10,000+ years. David Reich is right to emphasize how much discontinuation there was in ancient times but new data might make him change his stance to "it depends."

We western Europeans already know that we are all connected to the Villabruna clan who survived the Ice Age and so were the ancient dna R1b samples found in Samara.


The only certain thing about ATP3 is that he was R1b and found in Iberia, so he was in the wrong place at the wrong time, and he does not fit in with the R1b "Steppe invasion" that we know never happened.

Villabruna is the oldest R1b found in Europe so far and with loads of WHG and that the is proof that R1b is indigenous to western/central Europe. One poster states that the R1b in Yamnaya is linked to EHG and we know that EHG is derived from WHG.


Only one HG was tested in Italy and it is not a coincidence that one happened to be R1b. No scientist has attempted yet to explain the 15 million Italians who are R1b with diverse haplotypes and with rare YSNP branches.
