    Having looked at the evidence I'm pretty sure that it traces back to Fred and Wilma Flintstone.

    So...why couldn't someone be the descendant of Jesus? It would first of all require proving his physical existence, which has been debated from the start. We have no pictures, no birthdate, no clothes, no family remains.

    So when did Jesus have his DNA analysed and recorded to compare with modern records?

    And welcome to RF

    Oh...I forgot to mention...

    I did vote ‘yes’ in the poll, primarily because I saw the documentary.

    What was it called again?..



















    Oh yeah...The Da Vinci Code.​

    Oh, well, I checked the Ecology Website and it confirmed with DNA that I'm most definitely related to the Flinstones, so don't make fun of it. M'kay! o_O

    For the same reason that someone couldn't be the descendant of an extraterrestial alien.
    Oh, wait, that's right. Extraterrestial aliens could exist. At least they could have 2,000 years ago.

    @MelissaBolton
    There are, as I understand it, four kinds of DNA:
    • Autosomal DNA - inherited from both parents
    • Mitochondrial DNA - both males and females have it, BUT it is inherited only from a person's mother
    • Y-DNA - only males have it and it passes down the male line from father to son
    • X-DNA - males and females have it. Males do not inherit any of their father's X-DNA; they inherit their X-DNA only from their mothers. Females inherit X-DNA from their fathers and their mothers.
    So, which kind of DNA test did your husband submit a DNA sample for and through which company?

    My guess is that she has some connection to those who are PURPORTED to be descendants of Jesus and Mary Magdalene. Bet he favorite books are Holy Blood, Holy Grail and The Davinci Code.

    Takes all kinds to make a world.

    In my opinion, it doesn't matter who you are descended of. The only way anyone's DNA is of any consequence is if it gives you some physical/mental edge because of a diversionary mutation. Otherwise, a person is a person. A person's actions within life can obviously make them something "more" in other people's eyes, but being part of a "bloodline" is an entirely superficial measure of a person's "importance" to the rest of humanity.

    My point being - even if you had all your ducks in a row on this - even if you had all the evidence required to convince ANYONE of the truth of your claims - even with all that in your possession and given that you even convinced me 100%, I STILL WOULDN'T CARE. Your blood wouldn't matter. Go do something grand, then maybe I will acknowledge that you are perhaps a stranger worthy of some of my time. Though once you have actually done something worth note, I will likely be entirely unimportant to you, and not worth your time - which I entirely expect, and could not care less about. And until then, I've got much better, and things more important to myself to be doing.

    Sounds like you married a 'catch'.

    How did DNA analysis confirm anything so specific?

    I am one that leans to the belief that Jesus and Mary Magdalene had children from other psychic sources I respect.

    You solved that one perfectly and fast. I am curious how long it takes for "Jesus" to accept this.

    Well, at best - from a quick search - I found parallels between the Scone and Jesus, but not anything that clearly states that Jesus (or his descendant) should be King of Scotland... Unless you say that the Scottish kings claimed to be descendants of Jesus?
