Like I mentioned before, 393 and H4 from the video did match the published
study. The computer screen displaying the haplotype values seemed to be in
the same room as the lab technicians while they made their discoveries and
comparisons. If this was a sample Yfiler screen being displayed then they
(Discovery Channel or Dr. Hawass) should come out with an explanation to
dispute my findings. The ball is in their court now and Dr. Hawass should
put his cards on the table and reveal the specifics. The cat may be out of
the bag now with these results.
