ElShamah - Reason & Science: Defending ID and the Christian Worldview

Otangelo Grasso: This is my library, where I collect information and present arguments developed by myself that lead, in my view, to the Christian faith, creationism, and Intelligent Design as the best explanation for the origin of the physical world.

Estimating the Timescale of Human Genomic Deletions

By Bill Hathawayapril 27, 2023 Deletions’ from the human genome may be what made us human https://news.yale.edu/2023/04/27/deletions-human-genome-may-be-what-made-us-human

The loss of about 10,000 bits of DNA over the course of our evolutionary history helped differentiate us from other mammals, a team of Yale researchers found.

M W Nachman 2000 Sep;  Estimate of the mutation rate per nucleotide in humans.https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1461236/

With a genome size of approximately 3 billion base pairs, this translates to roughly 60-100 new single nucleotide mutations per diploid genome per generation

With a genome size of approximately 3 billion base pairs, this translates to roughly 60-100 new single nucleotide mutations per diploid genome per generation

Lets  put an average of 35 years per generation

Given information:
- There are 60 mutations per generation.
- Each generation is 35 years.
- The total accumulation is 10,000 mutations.

Step 1: Find the number of generations required to accumulate 10,000 mutations.
Number of generations = Total accumulation of mutations / Mutations per generation
Number of generations = 10,000 mutations / 60 mutations per generation
Number of generations = 166.67 generations

Step 2: Find the total number of years that passed.
Total number of years = Number of generations × Years per generation
Total number of years = 166.67 generations × 35 years per generation

Total number of years = 5,833.00 years

Therefore, it took approximately 5,833  years for the total accumulation of 10,000 mutations to occur, assuming 60 mutations per generation and each generation lasting 35 years.
