I got a D in Probability and Statistics at Penn State University, so please excuse me if I blow the logic here, but I’m gonna give it a shot anyway because I’m feeling frisky this morning.
If Everyone in the world descended from Nefertiti and Confucius, and everyone from Europe descended from Muhammad and Charlemagne ( who was really Karl De Magne, but that’s a tale for another thread ) , then logic dictates that Europeans are descended from all 4, whereas non-Europeans are descended from just the first two.
Since there was a fair amount of warring, conquering and the like that originated in the Mediterranean cultures ( Greece and Rome ) and then was spread East, how can one say with such surety that the Non-European Group only descends from two people, and the Europeans descend from four?
Nefertiti and Confuscius predate Muhammad and Charlemagne by centuries. Surely Eurpeans are descended from all four?
Personally, I like to think I’m descended from Charles Nelson Reilly but I’m not sure that contributes much to the current question.
