Thanks for the reply Mitchell, much appreciated. I understand who M-Eve and Y-Adam are from a genetic POV and the minimum human population. My confusion is over why the RTB guys would think that these two individuals are sole progenitors when obviously they are not. They’re obviously clever guys, and I wouldn’t think they were lying, but how can they seem to misunderstand something which seems fairly straightforward, even to an interested layperson such as myself…? Additionally, why they think the dates on these individuals converge at 130,000ya and therefore that this is the date humans originated, even though we know we emerged around 200,000ya.
I just can’t see how they get to their conclusions.
