He clearly means carriers of these SNPs happened to have established that
culture. (Not that the mutation affected culture).

And this hypothesis can explain the territorial correlation between R1b and
"centum" languages.

The "centum" branch includes Germanic, Romance and Celtic languages.

Sometimes Romance and Celtic language are said to split from a hypothetical
"Italo-Celtic" proto-language some 3000 years ago or so. At the time depth
of just four thousand years these three great European languages (Germanic,
Romance and Celtic) were likely one.

I would actually think they have adopted Indo-European language at that time
from (proto) Greeks in Balkans.
