Re: Genes are more complex than that
Fixed it for you:

My religious belief states: "There HAS to be a point in a series of such evolutionary processes where genetic diversity is reduced to the point that further evolution cannot happen."

Science does not agree.


Religious belief does not constitute scientific evidence, nor does it convey scientific knowledge.

Belief gets in the way of learning--Robert A. Heinlein

In the name of diversity, college student demands to be kept in ignorance of the culture that made diversity a value--StultisTheFool

It's not what we don't know that hurts, it's what we know that ain't so--Will Rogers

If I am entitled to something, someone else is obliged to pay--Jerry Pournelle

If a religion's teachings are true, then it should have nothing to fear from science...--dwise1

"Multiculturalism" demands that the US be tolerant of everything except its own past, culture, traditions, and identity.

Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other points of view--William F. Buckley Jr.

...during the time available

Please specify how much time you see as being available.

...accumulated over the last 6000 years.

Why do you specify "6000 years?"

Re: 6,000 years?
How does the Bible teach 6,000 years? http://creation.com/6000-years

You tell me, don't argue with bare links.
