Re: Thanks for Acknowledgments of the Claim of Reduced Genetic Diversity
What you haven't yet grasped is that SELECTION always inevitably reduces genetic diversity.
But isn't the point that whilst selection often reduces diversity, mutation is adding diversity to a population at a greater rate.

Could there be any greater conceit, than for someone to believe that the universe has to be simple enough for them to be able to understand it ?
