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.

But people with two copies of the recessive gene still reproduce.

Re: "Good creationist points" and other catechisms
The intelligent designer that designed the universe did not design sickle cell anemia. He introduced mutation into his creation, let orgamisms take on different purposes from that which they were designed to do. I don't believe the mosquito was ever created. It evolved from a creature that was perfectly designed to live in a world where they didn't need to suck the blood of other organisms in order to survive.

Of course, I'm just basing my conclusions on evidence and reasoning .
Which goes to show you that if you use faulty reasoning, you get faulty conclusions, which you so aptly demonstrated.

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.
