A term used by scientists when talking about the theoretical "Adam" of the present day human race. Some scientists believe that mutations in a male's Y chromosome prove that one man fathered all of humanity.
Every male has their own unique mutation in the Y chromosome. That mutation is passed on to his son and his son's sons. Now a mutation has been discovered that seems to be in every male that has been tested, giving proof of a Scientific Adam
