So you think posting a link that speaks to somatic change is a refute to the deteriorating genome, is that how it is?Lactase persistence and the ability to digest lactose is a recent positive change in the human genome. Previously seen as a disease (Simoons, F. J. 1969), research has shown it to be a heritable trait (Itan, Y., B.L. Jones, et al). This recent genetic change that is found in populations in Europe the West fits the bill as an example of new information added recently to our genome. While we may not understand all the details surrounding this new trait (Swallow, DM 2003) it still represents an evolution of the human genome.

I can post dozens of them. None of then demonstrates a limitless ablity to adapt, let alone have anything to say in relation to the research I have posted on the deteriorating genome. Creos accept limited adaptation, not unlimited.
My 6 point list contains a few of a plethora around a variety of organisms with a deteriorating genome.
Dan, go back to the kindy forum!!!!!!!!!!
So basically you have just wasted space, demonstrated you have no idea how to defend anything and just want to post because you hate the idea that I can actually support myself, and want to justify your existence on a debating thread.
