Haplogroup F (y-dna)

Jump to: navigation, search

In population genetics, Y-chromosome Haplogroup F is the Haplogroup for the sons of Shem [1]. This haplogroup contains the majority of the worlds male population especially people who speak languages that belong to the proposed Borean family [2].

Origins

Although evolutionists considerer this Haplogroup (or its ancestor Haplogroup CF) to be 20,000+ years old and to have began in sub-Saharan Africa, this is not possible according to the bible which says humanity had its origin in the near east and the earth is only 5-10 thousand years old, in fact modern genetics is starting to lower the age estimates for the Haplogroups and challenge the hypothesis that the Haplogroups arose in Africa [3]. Members of tribes in the most archaic branches of this Haplogroup use variations of the ethnicon Siam, Sam, Saami, Samoyed, Shemite, i.e. Shem.
