I think you're right, sledgehammer. áIt looks like Sanford thinks the beneficial effect of a mutation is constrained by its "size" relative to the total size of the genome - the bigger the genome, the smaller the effect of a single mutation. á

Assuming you and I are not misinterpreting, I think there are two possibilities:
(a) - he really is that dumb (perhaps he thinks giraffes have more neck genes than humans);
(b) - this is yet another silly exercise in apologetics - slosh a lot of sciency talk around, but fix it to make sure you get the answer Jesus wants you to get.

I'm strongly leaning (b).
