Re: Cohanim and Levites #dna

There are at least 4 DNA signatures for Kohanim and at least 4 or more for Levites. Also, there is historical evidence for (and Jewish law permits it) for the appointing of a Kohan in a place where all Kohanim were either gone (died, murdered, etc.). One would think a Levite (the closest to a Kohan) would be appointed, but perhaps an Israelite might have been appointed. The simple fact that there are numerous haplogroups for Kohanim and for Levites indicates diverse origins.
