Re: The purpose of phylogenetics
So in other words.... cytochrome B isn't something you want to show off when trying to sell evolution to people... so you cherry-pick cytochrome C instead.

A couple of folks have pointed to this statement as a lie, but to be clear, Taq gave a an explanation detailing why and when each of cytochrome B and C would be used, and additionally justified his own choice. But rather than respond, you just act as though no such reasons were given.

An honest approach would have involved either demonstrating why those reasons were incorrect, accepting Taq's response as sincere, or admitting that you were not in position to judge the correctness of his answer. You chose one of the many dishonorable responses possible.

If it were possible to give creationism a bad name, you would perhaps have done so. But not to worry...

Re: The purpose of phylogenetics
I accepted Taq's response. He said cytB has "higher variation" than cytC.

Do you think the theory of evolution requires the level of variation to be the same in both? Do you understand what somatic and mitochondrial indicate?

Seriously. Get a grip.
