Re: Evolutionists Show of Shutting Down the Debate

Aren't there any rules about this kind of thing ? How about if I say the population I'm studying, is just me ?

Got anything against that ?

Reversing the trend of that allele's frequency. FIrst it was evolution (when I got killed), then it was reversed when the allele came back into the population. I'm calling that "de-evolution", for want of a more catchy term

Re: Evolutionists Show of Shutting Down the Debate

Okay, I glanced by your earlier definition of population as your family. Sorry. If the allele in question was unique to only you and your future brother-in-law, who is homozygous for the allele, in your family, and both of his parents are dead (they both had the allele), and he had no siblings, and...

Re:

Complaining? Who's complaining? About what? that it's not a population. Families are not generally considered to be populations, but nice try. you mean nice fait accompli If your future brother-in-law has the same allele as you have, then it is elsewhere in the population (not referring to your fam...

Re: Evolutionists Show of Shutting Down the Debate

But Brother-in-Law was not part of the population when I got run over. It didn't exist in my family any more except for my copy. Sure he was, unless he had not yet been born when you got run over. He may not have been part of your family, but he was a part of the population. I defined the populatio...

Re: Evolutionists Show of Shutting Down the Debate

My sister though, then gets married to a guy who has it and is homozygous. After they have a baby, then the change in frequency is reversed. Back to square one. Ahhh ! No evolution occurred, then...or else we'd have to say that evolution, followed by de-evolution, occurred. That's why I tried to st...

Re: Evolutionists Show of Shutting Down the Debate

If some allele becomes lower in frequency, over time ( generations) , is it not evolution ? If my "kind" got reduced by one, it's a change. If it increases by ten, it's a change. Of course, this is not taking into account that the scenario of allele "frequency change", might be ...

It's the combination of alleles that make us all individuals.

Let's take a quick look into how Repressor Jerry Coyne might or might not have shot himself in the foot over this supposedly mothballed subject.
