Mal'ta skeleton[edit]

This is an example of why we should not rely on the media for scientific reports. I'm going out in a minute but if you look at the talk pages at other articles, eg Settlement of the Americas, you'll see that the reports said nothing of the kind - no Western Europeans, etc. Dougweller (talk) 06:13, 26 November 2013 (UTC); This site explains the same thing. And this was under 23,000 - 16,500 years ago section of the Settlement of the Americas article: "2002 the presence of the X haplogroup was found in a small percentage of modern indigenous Americans that is known to exist in a few locations in Europe and the Middle East. Subsequent research indicated that this DNA was not the result of genetic mixing after Columbus. However, the time estimates on haplogroup X entering Americas is around 15,000 to 20,000 years ago."

Thanks but I'm not sure what your point is? Dougweller (talk) 06:53, 27 November 2013 (UTC)
One more comment - what we seem to have is a flow into Europe and North America (Beringia to begin with) from the same source. Dougweller (talk) 19:26, 28 November 2013 (UTC)
