HBD, if I'm asked to explain how alleles beyond the two in the original individual were added, I have to speculate about how it might have occurred.

Please argue from evidence, not speculation. If you have no real-world evidence for an idea then the idea should not be presented in this or any of the science threads.

ALL theories about the ancient past are "making things up" really.

Things that happen leave behind evidence. What we know of the past depends upon how much of that evidence has survived to the present. There is no hard and fast rule that "ALL theories about the ancient past are 'making things up'". If you insist on operating under that "rule" then please stop contributing to this thread.

He assumed microevolution was open-ended. It isn't...

Please do not make claims sans evidence.

You all still believe the wrong stuff. I'm coming up with some right stuff because I don't have YOUR preconceptions, but you aren't anywhere near rethinking them are you?

You cannot legitimately request that people rethink their ideas in light of your claims when you've presented no evidence for your claims. For example, you postulate a mutational mechanism that efficiently produces only useful mutations, but you present no evidence for such a mutational mechanism.

If you present proper evidence, as moderator I will insure that participants give it proper attention.
