So let's see, how many contradictions are there in this single post:
1 - Earth is young but still talking about bottlenecks.
2 - Noah was real despite no evidence, and certainly no evidence of 900 year old people.
3 - MtDNA "proves" people who didn't exist were the progenitors of the whole human race, who promptly died of cancer.
4 - Evolution happened but evolution definitely didn't happen.
5 - There was "lots" of genetic variance in just 8 people, some of whom were related. Larger populations of big cats have problems but Noah's crew were "special".
6 - The last major human bottleneck matches the flood even though it was before the Earth was created, and no other animal bottlenecks line up with the flood.
7 - The Earth was a sun but all life survived.
8 - There's no evidence of a global flood but a global flood happened.
9 - Russ is still talking about science he rejects for theological reasons falsifying science he rejects for theological reasons.
10 - Therefore Goddidit with magic.

What is your explanation for there being 3 mtDNA lineages????
Only only one Y chromosome?

And HOW ON EARTH DID THE COMPLEMENT MAC EVOLVE?

No you are wrong!
If you understand the science correctly....
And science will catch up
The difference in the bottlenecks is because on the Ark there was only ONE Y chromosome...Noah's
Whereas there were 3 (or 4, if Noah's wife had more children after the Flood) lineages of mitochondrial DNA...
And that is precisely what 'science' has discovered...three main lineages of mtDNA
“So Noah, with his sons, his wife, and his sons’ wives, went into the ark because of the waters of the flood.” Gen 7:7
“Now the sons of Noah who went out of the ark were Shem, Ham, and Japheth… These three were the sons of Noah, and from these the whole earth was populated.” Gen 9:18–19
How many X chromosome lineages were on the Ark? That depends. If you count it all up, you get eight. If, by chance, Noah’s wife passed on the same X chromosome to each of her three sons (25% probability), then there were seven. If Noah had a daughter after the Flood (not expected, but possible), there could be as many as nine X chromosome lineages. Either way, this is a considerable amount of genetic material. And since X chromosomes recombine (in females), we are potentially looking at a huge amount of genetic diversity within the X chromosomes of the world.
Does this fit the evidence? Absolutely! It turns out that Y chromosomes are similar worldwide. According to the evolutionists, no “ancient”(i.e., highly mutated or highly divergent) Y chromosomes have been found.
This serves as a bit of a puzzle to the evolutionist, and they have had to resort to calling for a higher “reproductive variance” among men than women, high rates of “gene conversion” in the Y chromosome, or perhaps a “selective sweep” that wiped out the other male lines.
For the biblical model, it is a beautiful correlation and we can take it as is.
The evidence from mitochondrial DNA fits our model just as neatly as the Y chromosome data. As it turns out, there are three main mitochondrial DNA lineages found across the world. The evolutionists have labeled these lines “M”,“N”, and “R”.
It also turns out that M, N, and R differ by only a few mutations. This gives us some indication of the amount of mutation that occurred in the generations prior to the Flood.

I don't edit, unless it's for space. So make up your mind. Did the linky you gave falsify abiogenesis? Or not? If you say it did then you're lying. If you say it didn't then it means you made no point other than scientists are still conducting research which you don't give a shite about because you've already convinced yourself that abio is wrong because Goddidit with magic.

Subby...Here is an example of a hand waving excuse from evos.....
One particularly remarkable incidence of functionality with regards these sequences is the involvement of the highly fusogenic retroviral envelope proteins (the syncytins) which are known to be crucially involved in the formation of the placenta syncytiotrophoblast layer generated by trophoblast cell fusion. These proteins are absolutely critical for placental development in humans and mice. The different kinds of Syncytin protein are called "syncytin-A" and "syncytin-B" (found in mice); "syncytin-1" and "syncytin-2" (found in humans). But here's the remarkable thing: Although serving exactly the same function, syncytin-A and syncytin-B are not related to syncytin-1 and syncytin-2. Syncytin protein also plays the same function in rabbits (syncytin-ory1). But rabbit syncytin is not related to either the mouse or the human form. These ERVs are not even on the same chromosome. Syncytin-1 is on chromosome 7; syncytin-2 is on chromosome 6; syncytin-A is on chromosome 5; and syncytin-B is on chromosome 14.

This is yet another example of a supposed virus hitting the germ line and immediately becoming an integral part of a system, which is impossible. Refute with research if you wish but I have grown weary of your hummble opinion, circular discussion, evasion and laziness in researching and providing appropriate responses. You chose this topic, now go learn something about it, instead of wasting your entire day, every day, on line talking in circles.
I am actually presenting the start of an argument in this simple question you have refused to answer.
Exactly what scientific basis do evolutionists use to determine if a so called erv is ancestral or independently inserted?
If you don't know, just say so. If the correct answer is too obviously biased to speak to then just keep evading it.
I have given my answer to the question, now it's your turn seeing as you'd like to think you know what an acestral gene might be.
Did you realize the rabbits can also be carriers of a specific genetic viral disease, that when propogated correctly, is on the CDC top five list of BIOlogical warfare agents?

But for now I'm happy that you got caught lying again and that you've admitted again that you have no scientific case to speak of, ergo your posts for the past few months here are worthless as always.

What did the apes "evolve from"?

Darwin's INCOMPLETE theory is VERY passe now--as are the 2nd grade pictographs of it.
Science has moved WAY beyond, by leaps and bounds.

What did those "apes" evolve from?

YOU (emphasis) might want to catch up a little!!

The first systematic presentation of evolution was put forth by the French scientist Jean Baptiste de Lamarck (1774-1829) in 1809. Lamarck described a mechanism by which he believed evolution could occur. This mechanism was known as "the inheritance of acquired characteristics."

Lamarck started his scientific career as a botanist, but in 1793 he became one of the founding professors of the Musee National d'Histoire Naturelle as an expert on invertebrates. His work on classifying worms, spiders, molluscs, and other boneless creatures was far ahead of his time.

Assume that there were salamanders living in some grasslands. Suppose, Lamarck argued, that these salamanders had a hard time walking because their short legs couldn't trample the tall grasses or reach the ground. Suppose that these salamanders began to slither on their bellies to move from place to place. Because they didn't use their legs, the leg muscles wasted away from disuse and the legs thus became small. Lamarck's theory said that the salamanders passed this acquired trait to their offspring. In time the salamander's legs were used so rarely that they disappeared. Thus, Lamarck argued, legless salamanders evolved from salamanders by inheriting the acquired characteristic of having no legs. Lamarck presented no experimental evidence or observation and his theory fell out of scientific favor. The next significant idea came from the British scientist Charles Darwin.

In 1837 Darwin began his first notebook on evolution.

So, As we see from some gathered FACTS-- Darwin's theory was NOT only NOT wholly original to him, but NOT very recent, at all.

Capish?

Nope. The theory of evolution does not rely on abiogenesis. It does not care if life developed naturally or if it was magically poofed into being by an invisible magical wizard. All evolution needs is for life to be here. Life IS here. Life evolves. Facts. In order to demonstrate otherwise you need to demonstrate that life is in fact NOT here. Good luck.

Or do you also reject the theory of gravity? That doesn't explain the origin of mass, but it still works.

Do you also reject the germ theory of disease? That doesn't explain the origin of germs, but it still works.

Likewise evolution.

Nothing. It's when you pretend it's relevant to science there becomes a problem.

Yeah the Romans were mean to early Christians. Yeah there was a guy called Herod.

No there were no talking donkeys and lizards. No there was no global flood.

No the Earth is not a flat square circle at the center of a geocentric universe.

Goddidit with magic? Well maybe, but can't be scientifically substantiated. We COULD all be trapped in the Matrix.

Its all in writing

Or were you being your usual sarcastic self?

It scarcely matters, tho'...

Does life beget life?

There is NO evidence for the evolution of any biological cascade requiring enzymatic regulation

Check tomorrow, Bud

I thought you had said you had a background in immunology?

The complement cascade needs to be very finely regulated to prevent damage to self-cells by antibody-directed complement-mediated lysis. Further, the complement cascade needs to be controlled because degradation products of the complement proteins can diffuse (and thereby cause damage) to adjacent cells. The complement cascade is thus very tightly regulated by several circulating and membrane-bound proteins.

ALL HAVE TO BE PRESENT SIMULTANEOUSLY TO WORK!
No allowance for millions of years of evo-god magic....

Yet another hopeless FAIL for evolutionary paradigms

No it wasn't. Darwin's contribution was proposing the mechanism of natural selection. He built his work of earlier people, just as all scientists do. It was Linnaeus for example who came up with our biological classification system, which the basic idea is still in use today. And he was by all accounts a creationist. It was him who pointed out that humans were apes. Ironically this creationist helped lay down the basis of evolution.
