So at least 20% believe Mueller will find impeachable offenses fairly, 27% that he will find impeachable offenses and be fired, and 35% that he will be fired even though he's treating Trump fairly.
And many of them will vote for Trump anyway, because 'my party right or wrong, fuck you'.

I'm sure that Grand Groom-of-the-Stool Devin Nunes will come up with something at about that time. Not anything that substantial, or even seriously worth considering, but bombastic enough to make a fuss for a few days.

Alternative Reality Science Extravaganza / Re: Oldest Human Remains

I do not see how to reconcile these:
So if every modern human is descended from L3, you would expect L3 to be equally distant from all modern humans.
AND
According to Maca-Meyer et al. (2001), "L3 is more related to Eurasian haplogroups than to the most divergent African clusters L1 and L2".[11]

No, "socrates".

Of course you don't.

That's why you ran away.

And that's why you'll return "discussing" something different, and Just Pretending the whole exchange never happened.

Your tricks are not just old and stale; they're mummified.

So, socrates, which stage are you in?
I think it's the Running Away Stage. It usually occurs briefly, when remaining in the Just Pretending Stage is no longer possible.

Unfortunately, it never lasts long, and the patient quickly relapses.

For our guests, a short recap may be useful.

178 pages in, every single study cited from the literature places L3 as deeply nested within the mtDNA haplogroups of extant humans.  Every single one.  And every single study cited from the literature shows that every haplogroup more basal than L3 is overwhelmingly African.  No amount of illogical squirming can refute these facts.

On the other hand: rCRS is a modern member of L3.

And we can all count the 18 mutations from L3 to rCRS in the large graphic.

So in the same ~100,000 years, the rCRS gained 18 mutations, while during the exact same period, the modern member of L0 gained 81.

A factor of 4.5 times more.
L3 originating in the Levant would be closer to an rCRS descendant than to an L0 descendant in Africa. Is that correct?
If not why not?
The phylotree shows that the L3 in the Levant is closer to the European rCRS than to an L0 descendant in Africa.

By closer I did not mean distance.

You guys seem to be flailing.
mtDNA evidence is consistent with L3 originating in the Levant.
uncool went to a lot of trouble counting mutations to arrive at a conclusion that is completely consistent with L3 originating in the Levant. And consistent with:

At least your ghost audience still thinks you understand it.

Just when you thought "promposals" couldn't get any fucking dumber:



Can't wait for the inevitable police promposal pull over prank where the kid has weed in the car.
