An origin in the Asia Minor flies in the face of the genetic research out there especially the ones that highlight the MtDna lineages (L haplotypes). Why? Because these L haplotypes seen to be the oldest MtDna lineages in existence are native to and for the most part domiciled in Africa. This evidence speaks to the anteriority of African lineages in the human genetic sequence. Now conventional wisdom would suggest that if the so-called Asia Minor region is the primoridal birthplace of humanity we would expect to see the oldest or at least a sizable relic of some of the oldest mitchondrial lineages having residence there. Of course people migrate, and very few human populations have remained settled in their ancient haunts as the indigenous inhabitants; yet when researchers attempt to ascertain a point of origin they tend to look at a centrist model based on concentration and dispersion thereupon. The proof is in the pudding. It is similiar to locating the actual place of an earthquake. In order to pinpoint the coordinates of an earthquake, scientist look to where the highest concentrations of seismic activity is present. Such is the same when understanding human movement and relationships. The onus is on you now to bring forth an adequate amount of evidence to refute the accepted notion than human populations have there origin along the Great Rift Valley in Central Africa.I can most definetly appreciate your chain of thought and your work ethic. I am really to tired after work to dig up what ive already studied and present it at this time. I have seen the documetaries where they claim to have found the midacondria or proverbial Eve on our beloved Africa. I have also seen and read documetation on Asia Minor that supports it being the craddle...pre-continentail drift of course. I am inclined to know that Man exisited before the drift, and what was produced on Asia Minor is vast amount of rich oil which implies a wonderful and enourmous garden. This is my studies and logic being presented as evidence. But in when time permits I shall honor your request for documentation....peace
I look forward to hearing your response because I may be missing something. I am not infallible.
