Minoans were Europeans According to mtDNA Evidence (Nature Magazine): So What Does the Close DNA Similarity to Macedonian Greece Say About the Phaistos Disk?

The scientific journal Nature has published an article on the results of mtDNA studies of ancient Crete titled A European population in Minoan Bronze Age Crete, by Jeffery R. Hughey, Peristera Paschou, Petros Drineas, Donald Mastropaolo, Dimitra M. Lotakis, Patrick A. Navas, Manolis Michalodimitrakis, John A. Stamatoyannopoulos & George Stamatoyannopoulos, doi:10.1038/ncomms2871
Look at Figure 6 in that article which shows unequivocally the close DNA relationship of the Minoans to Greece.

Stephanie Seiler at the University of Washington writes in DNA analysis unearths origins of Minoans, the first major European civilization:
"The analysis also showed a high degree of sharing with the current population of the Lassithi plateau and Greece. In fact, the maternal genetic information passed down through many generations of mitochondria is still present in modern-day residents of the Lassithi plateau."
We have more than a passing interest in Minoan DNA research and ask: Is there a Greek language decipherment of the Minoan Phaistos Disk (viz. Disc)?

There is.
Published over 30 years ago.
Ignored by the academic community,
who think they know better.

Take a look online at
The Phaistos Disk: Hieroglyphic Greek with Euclidean Dimensions

And look also at my most recent book, Ancient Signs, which integrates my 30-year old decipherment of the Phaistos Disk as well as the derived Linear B signs into a coherent system of ancient syllabic signs that reflect the origins of writing and the later developed alphabets.

Ancient Signs
 Ancient Signs The Alphabet & The Origins of Writing, a print & ebook, shows modern alphabets follow ancient alphabets derived from syllabic scripts: Iraq viz. Sumer (Sumerian), Egypt (Hieroglyphs), Iran viz. Persia (Elam and Old Elamite), Anatolia (Luwian viz. Luvian), Crete (Phaistos Disk and Linear B), Cyprus (Cypriot Syllabary).
