"The domestication of cats began in Asia; the Fertile Crescent to be exact; which suggests, according to the accepted theory of the peopling of the globe, that the Rh D positive factor should be more prevalent in Europe."
-According to the accepted theory people have adapted to suit their environment. The area known as the fertile crescent is still far enough away from the Basque. If we're talking about human migration, I think it may have taken place well before the 10,000 years ago when the cat was first domesticated.
"Your argument for a non-feline environment does however add more weight to my hypothesis that there are two distinct branches of hominids, since the evolution of Felidae preceeded the evolution of the 'modern human'."
-Is there an abundant wild cat population in western Europe? If the cat wasn't domesticated until 10,000 years ago, and people had already migrated far away from areas with any abundant wild feline populations then...we could go in circles, but we're still not finding answers.
