I don't think that the results rule out Adam and John being siblings.
Johann and John, showing the same unusual maker (464e) are very likely
related. However, if this marker is the only difference between John and
Adam, then isn't it possible for there to be a back mutation in Adam's
case? It would be interesting to see more Snyder results.
