Hmmm. Gosh, I'm not a PhD, but this supports what I've said in the past about "other reasons for mutation".

Moving genes, and many even more drastic chromosomal mutations, have been known, and included as "mutations" for many decades. I have no idea what you could be talking about. (I don't recall your earlier posts off the top of my head.) There are some antievolutionists here who pretend as if evolutionists only "believe" in simple point mutations, but that's just a straw man.

Some of those straw men are awful fancy.

IIRC, this is technically call a "Trans-location"....not only can genes be eliminated, but sometimes they can be duplicated...with disastrous results. When genes get doubled up, they and can mimick other diseases like "Trisomy-21"....Downs syndrome.

Interesting stuff ping to Badray.

Fountain of worthless knowledge /OFF.......LOL.
