Vince,

It is a given that the history of the evolution of life exists complete and
unchanging in the past, regardless of how much of it I or anyone else happens to
know about it. Good grief, I'm a (retired) paleontologist. Who here
appreciates it more than I do?

And as I've responded similarly in this message
http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/GENEALOGY-DNA/2010-03/1268409023
and this one
http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/GENEALOGY-DNA/2010-03/1268513205
and this one
http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/GENEALOGY-DNA/2010-03/1268517454
one does begin to wonder why you keep bringing it up.

When I speak of the Y-DNA tree/haplotree/haplogroup tree/cladogram changing, I
*OBVIOUSLY* mean the structure on this page:
http://www.isogg.org/tree/

Please study the meaning of equivocation:
