In fact, I wonder if it's conceivable that none of the autosomal DNA [in
present males] is [inherited] from him [genetic Adam]. Given postings about
how many ancestors fail to leave us actual autosomal DNA after 1,000 years
or so, I'm guessing that might be statistically probable, even.

That would be an interesting calculation.
