Does anyone have an estimate of the percentage of women and men who carry R1b1b2 DNA?

I know it's a high percentage in Western Europe, from Spain to Scandinavia, but it must have spread throughout the Americas and Australia, and I've read that 58 percent of men have R1b DNA in America.

Do most men in Mexico and South America have R1b ancestry?

I think almost all of my male ancestors came from Western Europe and most probably carried R1b DNA from all sides.

While women can not carry R1b (as they do not have Y-DNA!), I do understand that grandpa R1b had big balls, pardon my French.

For some reason, R1b males do not seem to have a problem in being "fruitful".

Hey, be careful with the word "fruitful", lol, I don't think Grandpa R1b would have considered himself "fruitful"!

Does anyone know if Oisin was even real?

And who is Ruisko?

Can't find anything on him.

It is my opinion that neither are real, at least in the context of what you are describing.

Oisin (pronounced Usheen or Osheen) is a figure from Irish myth and legend, the son of Finn McCool (Finn mac Cumhail).

Sykes appropriated the name as a stand-in for R1b in his book, Blood of the Isles.

Ruisko is a Basque given name. Oppenheimer used it for R1b in his book, Origins of the British.

Both books are seriously outdated now.

Right, and obviously the Irish are not descendants of Paleolithic Basques.

I don't think most of the Basques are the descendants of Paleolithic Basques (if there even were any "Basques" during the Paleolithic Period, which I doubt).
