Does this say that the gene is actually in two parts and each part is on a different chromosome but that if either part is present the gene manifests?

Interesting. I wonder how often this happens?

Hmmm. Gosh, I'm not a PhD, but this supports what I've said in the past about "other reasons for mutation". I wonder if the same folks that called me an idiot for having such a hypothesis will protest these findings.

I luv this part..."perhaps the gene in question has jumped clear off the chromosome"

I don't know how you do it - day in/day out, you're out there putting up the good fight. Personally, I find it all so very tiresome. If it isn't obvious to all, within 50-100 years, scientists & industry will be utilizing genetic engineering to address practically every issue confronting humanity. And it won't be mundane speciation.

Example: how/why did our senses evolve? What is their physical manifestation? What if the basic drivers could be replicated without the actual physical sensation? For instance, why do we enjoy music? Why does certain food taste so good?

The day is coming quite soon when we will have the ability to directly manipulate these sensations via artificial means. Why devote millions of acres to growing foodstuffs when crops can be genetically altered to produce the most nutrients/calories & combine this with genetically altered humans so that they think they are eating steak?

Ditto music; who needs sound when the same response mechanism can be artificially triggered? Science isn't progessing at a linear or geometric rate; rather, it's practically exponential.

These are exciting times - wasting it on debates with people who you would normally never even know existed, as they operate completely out of your sphere, is a futile excercise.

Watch someone try to quote-mine Dobzhansky to prove that he didn't believe in evolution.

Be nice?

Fascinating, really.

Where we will be in 50 years is far beyond exciting. So long as we survive as a species and are free to explore and discover, there are few limits to hamper humanity. Faith and science are complimentary, so long as dogma is restrained in each. It would be a tragedy for us to fail to achieve our full potentials. I do pray that all of our children and grandchildren take full advantage of what both science and faith have to offer.
