What is so astonishing about it? If John or you accept that a single
paternal line or a small group of paternal lines can die out then what is
the *qualitative* difference that makes it impossible for a big group to die
out by chance - or to put it in John's terms, why is it necessarily proven
that any paternal line which has become a majority group *must* have a
selective advantage. I think the basic logic already speaks for itself and
the burden of proof lies with John, who starts his argument with "trust me"
and also claims he can show the maths.

"I don't have any references but I am aware of the fact, from reading
something in the past, that a simple random computer programe which
assumes no selective advantage will show surnames or Y DNA dieing out
even when they have been in a majority situation."
You've got to find out where you read this, and cite the source for us!
You can't make an astonishing statement like this and expect us to
simply accept it! If this is true, I want to know the details.
