RE: ASPM allele origin dated to Adam's time

This borders on the dangerous. This gene is more prevalent in Europe than
elsewhere. Are we now going to start saying that Adam was a European? I
have big problems with that.

Lahn's new study suggests the allele of the ASPM gene prevalent today "arose
5800 years ago (with a possible range of 500 to 14,100 years), just before
cities arose in the Near East." This sounds suspiciously close to the time
Adam, as deduced from the cultural indications of the early Genesis
Is this found in the general population or only in a certain group? At 5800
years ago it should not be found in all humans as these are modern humans
who covered the globe by that late date. The Americas have been populated
for at least 12,000 years, so it would be unlikely that the ASPM gene would
be found on both sides of the Atlantic in Africa, China, etc. If it is then
the date is suspect.
