There's no way that a population (including the ancestors of the British, Celts or Germans) that had few contacts with the Turks is so similar to the latter. Turks are genetically closer to their neighboors, the British respectively are closer to the Germanic peoples, and so on.

Maybe the researchers were probing British tourists in Turkey!

So you think there was an error in this research? Please explain.

I believe there's a huge error in the research.

First...There are numerous other researches made by Turks showing other things.

Second, DNA research cost way too much. It is often wrong results are published...Researchers sometimes have to give a result no matter what.

Third, lets move to this field called logic...Do you really believe Turks look more like Brittish people or Georgians, Greeks and other neighbourrs? I mean, this is not the 1930s Germany where no matter what you think, if science says so, shut up. Have a look...

Peter Crouch...Is this the typical Turk?

Just pick any famous Britt and ask yourself, is this how Turks look like?

Now...If you see some pages back I have posted what haplogroups Turks have mainly in their DNA. J2a which is a native haplogroup, G2a4 which is native as well, E1b1b1 (western Turkey) which is from the Balkans, R1a (7%) and R1b (~16%) that yes are found in Britts but came to Anatolia with the Hittites, Luwians, Phrygians, Greeks, Thracians and other Indo-European speaking people way back in time. The Central Asian haplogroups found in Turkmens, Uzbeks etc is only 10%.

Well, there could be a certain Slavic-Dinaric link in there somehow, somewhere. Some Brits have Slavic-Dinaric ancestry, and so do some Turks, just like GalataTurk said about himself. Perhaps that's what made some of them look similar to one another. It's no big deal.

Of course the research is funny. I've already explained the reasons. In Europe people cluster with their neighbors. How can you be genetically closer to people that aren't even mainland Europeans but islanders (British) than to people that live next to you or in the same cities and villages in the past (Greeks and Bulgarians from Europeans)?

See the posts of Midas in this thread for simple scientific explanation.

I was always curious about why I go well with our British members.

This search explains, the reason.

Btw, I have a great example you should all watch people. Below you will see a lecture of JP Mallory, one of the worlds leading professors in prehistoric archaeology. At some point he mentions his distrust to DNA research. As he says and as I mentioned earlier: "Anyone doing a major DNA research, has to make a BIG BANG to make the money flowing". He also takes as an example of the Hungarian case, where within 1000 years the modern samples happened to be completely different than the ancient samples.

Just watch it and you will get what I mean...

In other words...think twice when you see DNA results. The more you think, the most trustworthy source you'll find.
