In response to Taq's no win challenge (Micro v. Macro Creationist Challenge) I propose the following.

Show that ALL of the genetic differences between humans and chimps could have been produced by microevolutionary processes within 10 million years using reasonable population sizes, mutation rates, generation times, and assuming that all the non-homologous genes have appeared since separation. Fitness effect of each change must be considered.

I would accept a gene duplication as a single evolutionary event.
Explanation must include fusion of chromosome 2, differences between the human and chimp Y chromosome, and the loss or gain of a baculum.

I don't think we need two identically named threads, and you're not actually trying to draw a distinction between micro and macro.
