Ah hah. Got it. I was only considering the reduction of Meosis I and forgetting about mitotic events in Meosis II.

Whoops! Thank you, and my students thank you.

GOT A QUESTION

O.K. A student asked me a question the other day that stumped me and I bet there is a really simple answer. We are talking about alternative inheritance patterns in humans, specifically sex-linked traits. I showed my class a karyotype in continuing to reinforce what chromosomes are and do. The karyo...

I think it is like a religion. Are the kids given a chance to think for themselves about it? Absolutely not. In fact, in many cases, the atheists that teach in our schools, especially those in our colleges, disrespect creationists. No the current popular opinion of the interpretation of the observa...

I have never met a human that was not biased about who/what or lack thereof put them here. ALEX: Then welcome to Mecca.

Just a simple question about Evolution, for an Evolutionist's point of view, what is exactly the purpose of life? Is it as simple as living out normal lives, doing the same thing day after day and then die, or is there more to that? Sorry but I'm just curious! Technically science does not offer up ...
