This morning I was pleased to find that a fellow wordpress blogger had clicked the “like” button on two of my recent posts. As a general rule I always think it’s polite to at least check the blog of those people who have clicked on mine and have taken the time to read and like my posts. Call it blogger solidarity.
I was very pleased to read the following post by Stephen Lewis, which I highly recommend. It’s a very long article but very illustrative and entertaining, although it will certainly require a good dose of concentration on your part. Believe me though, it is worth reading. In a fairly simple and straightforward way, the author explains the very basics of direct ancestry and how the pyramid-shaped pattern of our family tree necessarily has to be more theoretical than practical, given the limited amount of human beings we can actually claim descent from. Enjoy!
