Re: "Good creationist points" and other catechisms
Sickle cell anemia is fatal and occurs in people in their reproductive years, and yet continues to be passed down genetically.
Sickle cell anemia is caused by having two copies of a recessive gene, those carrying only 1 recessive gene can pass it on to their offspring. Those people with sickle cell anemia will have their lifespan shortened to ~40 years or so, which is more than enough time to reproduce and pass on the recessive sickle cell genes

right, cause sickle cell anemia, while fatal, is not an immediate barrier to reproduction.

Re: "Good creationist points" and other catechisms
Which goes to show you that traits that reduce fitness can be passed down. This goes against what trixie was trying to demonstrate with hodgkins disease and teeth problems.
Not at all. Trixie's post was in support of this:
It's fatal, yet it continues to be passed on because it only begins to manifest itself well after reproductive age, usually starting in mid forties. By the time someone knows they carry the gene the've already had children, 50% of whom will also carry it.
So we're stuck with our teeth that are prone to caries and awful abscesses. They can keep us going long enough to pass on these teeth to our offspring without modification.
