Now, are you suggesting that we should look for genetic explanations of the Vanir and Jotuns and Aesir and their interrelations and human descendants? How about titans, nymphs and gods of Olympus? It's not scientific. It's mythic. Your terms of analysis do not apply to the situation, and would not even if Elrond and Aragorn had been actual, historic persons.
I just loathe when science gets misrepresented like that by spreading false information or using wrong terms.
