Irish Middle East link unsurprising

Published 04/01/2016

It should be no surprise that the ancestry of the Irish can be traced back to the Middle East (News, December 29).

The ancestry of all humans on Earth goes back to the eight people who survived the worldwide flood between 4,000 and 5,000 years ago.

And they repopulated the whole Earth from the mountains of Ararat in the Middle East, where the ark came to rest.

So, the scientific research recently published simply confirms what the Bible records.

It's a pity that more people don't recognise it as a very reliable source of information about human history.
