Genetic data show mainly men migrated from the Pontic steppe to Europe 5,000 years ago

DNA study showing European migration over past 9000 years. The findings give hints on the social and cultural makeups of the two major European migrations.

Introduction
"Genetic data suggest that modern European ancestry represents a mosaic of ancestral contributions from multiple waves of prehistoric migration events. Recent studies of genomic variation in prehistoric human remains have demonstrated that two mass migration events are particularly important to understanding European prehistory: the Neolithic spread of agriculture from Anatolia starting around 9,000 years ago, and migration from the Pontic-Caspian Steppe around 5,000 years ago. These migrations are coincident with large social, cultural, and linguistic changes, and each has been inferred to have replaced more than half of the contemporaneous gene pool of resident Central Europeans."

5000 Years Ago
"A new study, looking at the sex-specifically inherited X chromosome of prehistoric human remains, shows that hardly any women took part in the extensive migration from the Pontic-Caspian Steppe approximately 5,000 years ago."

9000 Years Ago
"The great migration that brought farming practices to Europe 4,000 years earlier, on the other hand, consisted of both women and men. The difference in sex bias suggests that different social and cultural processes drove the two migrations."

Pretty much excludes an A&E first couple at 6000 years ago and a worldwide flood genocide at 4350 years ago.
