Subject: [DNA] re King Tut

Even if the DNA of Tut does turn out to be R1bxxx, it doesn't really say anything about the rise of Egypt. Egypt's ruling elite was up to some high number of lineage. I.E. Egypt's ruler was whoever happened to be the most recent strongman and frequently he was a mercenary from elsewhere. And then he would marry his sister and the result would be a physical defective like Tut.
