In order to explain out how what they consider various Tribes of Israel
can belong to very different Haplogroups, BritAm attempted "refutation" of
the SNP tree on their website.
" This is however a bit difficult for us ... to agree with DNA "science" in
accepting the above divisions "
Instead they propose that each SNP can take place multiple times!
They quote Ellen Coffman and others and others from the list. They also
quote without attribution my proposal to divide of haplogrous into Shem ( F
to J ), Ham ( A to E ), and Japhet ( K to R ).
Then they go on and reject entire YCC tree.
This is why the following question was asked:
>> Would that not either turn the time frames for mutations upside-down
>> or would there be another alternative explanation?
If some Cohanim are in J1 or J2, and some Levitic men are in R1a, it
"proves" that the entire YDNA Tree does not work !
In fact, of course, the non-J Levites are coming from additional lineages.
Maybe some Eastern Jews had the last name Levy and were assumed to be a
It is even possible that at ancient times some non-J people were officially
assigned Levitic status - this is a serious qestion for Torah scolars and is
beyond the domain of genetic genealogy community expertise in Judaism.
