“The level of haplogroup T in the Cherokee (26.9 percent) approximates the percentage for Egypt (25 percent), one of the only lands where T attains a major position among the various mitochondrial lineages.”

Yates focused on haplotype X for “its relative absence in Mongolia and Siberia and a recently proven center of diffusion in Lebanon and Israel.”

The Mormons have been saying that the Indians are Israelites for almost 200 years now.  Which may be why the scientists don't want to make that jump.

I am a Mormon.  If I don't use Mormons believe, those my beliefs only.
I do not go to church haven't for thirty years.
There are other Mormons on this site. So if I have misspoken about the beliefs. I welcome their input.
I am not perfect and never will be. I do strive to be true to myself. I do my best to stay true to the Mormon faith. Thanks for caring and if you don't peace be with you.

Last I checked my Cherokee relatives had shovel shaped incisors which is not found in the middle east. The Melungeon DNA has been analyzed and found to contain sub saharan african genes. Still, the Mormans must love this guy.

People aren't dismissing your theme out of hand, they are dismissing it because it has no basis in reality. You continue to take the worst translation (Mercer's) of a multiply sourced and combined text written in a language you know nothing about and from 150 years after the GP's construction and pretend, while ignoring that it is found in the tomb and addressed to Unis, that its a construction manual for an object (the GP) 150 years before Unis' reign. You are the reason your theme isn't taken seriously as you've not shown any knowledge of the subject at hand and therein lies your problem....................................................................Cormac mac airt......................2015

  Classic, try telling a Highland Scotsman he is Jewish,and see how far you get without serious injury,or sudden death.

Spud, I agree. I've read some absolute BS in my time, but this takes the cake.

Eh, in Conspiracy Central that's just denial and thus further evidence of the correctness of the theory...

This guy a has classic pseudo-intellectual wannabe mentality. Apparently his real ancestry isn't romantic enough, so through tortuous logic he has manufactured himself a better one. The classic Saxon name of Yates or Yeats has been been rationalized to be of sephardic origin, and not not only that, his cherokee ancestors are, too. I am so tired of people who can not accept the authenticity and originality of Native American cultures and try to ascribe them to Old World origins.

I have coined the term "envyolithic" to describe this phenomenon, though some here don't prefer it.

Not bad. He's definitely xenophilic.
