    >Also, Ross has just published in his organization's magazine a critique of certain dating techniques. I refer the listserve to his publications. bert m.

    Does this include dating someone whose DNA coalescence time differs greatly from one's own?

    Seriously, not having immediate access to his publications, could you give a general idea of what techniques, etc.? Some dating techniques are indeed doubtful whereas others seem quite well-founded.

    Incidentally, even if the mitochondrial and Y bottlenecks are correctly associated with Eden or the Flood, there is a chance that the identity of the individual is incorrect. For example, if only one of Eve's daughters had daughters, then the mitochondrial "Eve" would be Eve Jr.
