|BOTTLENECKS DO NOT LIMIT GENETIC DIVERSITY IF HETEROZYGOSITY (H) IS HIGH TO BEGIN WITH|
I have a very large hammer to bash this assertion to smitherrines.
HOW MANY ALLELES ARE PRESENT IN THE BREEDING PAIR AFTER THE BOTTLENECK?
How many Dave? Four? At most?
What I have been asking is how you get 61 HLA-B ALLELES fully interspersed in the population in only 250 years (or even 180 years with your latest timeline assertions). Because in the case of the ark we only had 16 ALLELES TO START WITH NO MATTER HOW WELL MIXED UP THEY ARE AFTER A FEW GENERATIONS!!!!!
The 61 NEW HLA-B ALLELES APPEARED IN THE POPULATION AFTER THE FLOOD AND BEFORE THE END OF THE UCGH ICE AGE!!!!
Your genetic diversity argument doesn't address this inconsistency in your UCGH.
Please explain to us how these 61 alleles appeared in only 250 (or 180) years.
