>Your young estimates are nothing new to this list. This discussion has been going on since someone used mcgees program to estimate that R1b was 6 or 7K years old several years ago.
If you are talking on Iberia or Europe in general, it is not "6 or 7K years old", It is much younger, between around 3600 ybp in Iberia and 4200-4600 in Europe. As well as M269, S116, U152, U106, etc. And, mind you, I am talking on ancestors of presently living people, not on extinct folks.
>I would hardly call archeology and genetic evidence, climate change and geographical analysis "thoughts and interpretations".
Thank you for mentioning climate change in that line. It gives a particular flavor to the arguments. You forgot to add "human-made".
