Intelligent Reasoning

Promoting, advancing and defending Intelligent Design via data, logic and Intelligent Reasoning and exposing the alleged theory of evolution as the nonsense it is. I also educate evotards about ID and the alleged theory of evolution one tard at a time and sometimes in groups

How Many Generations Does it Take for an Allele to Reach Fixation?

Allan Miller's TSZ thread titled "Randomness and Evolution" is supposed to show how easy it is to get a variant to reach fixation in a population. It is unrealistic, meaning has nothing to do with sexually repruducing populations in the wild.

Haldane's Dilemma was borne from the attempt to estimate the rate of fixation for beneficial alleles. It has not been confirmed. Then there is a fruit fly experiment in which there wasn't any fixation of any beneficial mutation after 600 generations- Genome-wide analysis of a long-term evolution experiment with Drosophila.

The point being is that no one knows the rate of fixation for a beneficial allele in the wild. Neutral mutations fix at a much slower rate- slower than unknown slowness :)- and again no one has confirmed any of neutral theories equations so no one knows the rate of fixation for neutral mutations.

The funny part is it looks like he has the other evoTARD regulars convinced that it is quite easy for a neutral mutation to reach fixation. If they only understood real-world biology...

    Good day, Joe. While I don't fully understand Haldane's dilemma and genetics, this is a VERY interesting website. If this is true, and this guy seems RELENTLESS about it :D ,then Darwinism is in sooo much trouble...
    He's the author of a very highly rated book - The Biotic Message (4.4/5 on Amazon.
    though, I'd like to stress that truth is not a popularity contest (that's the Darwinist's propaganda technique, not IDist's))

    I am aware of and have exchanged thoughts with Walter Remine. He definitely gets under the skin of evos.
