This is the most general and elusive statement one could possibly make in
ANY field of science, engineering, and common life.

Not true. Are 464 of 67-marker haplotypes for R-P312 a small number for you?
Are 708 of 67-marker haplotypes for U106 a small number for you?

The first sentence is generally true, the second is not true.
