The sampling is far too small to be a conclusive scientific explanation. If we consider the vast differences around the world (in Africa alone there are over 2000 language groups) it is not possible that we all originate from a single mother down the lines. Also, the lack of mutations in our lineage suggests that there is far less inter-breeding than the theory of Mitchondrial Eve would have us believe. Tlouc287 (talk) 16:56, 13 April 2012 (UTC)
