Polygenic traits

Post by Morphoeclectic » Fri May 02, 2008 3:33 pm

Many traits and functions involve many genes working in tandem to produce the
desired outcome. How do the Darwinists , using Mendelian inheritance, explain
how such a arrangement of genes ( presumably mutated) could have been preserved
and extended to the point of fixation in a population?

Natural selection weeds out genes that are unsuitable to survival, and preserves genes that are favorable.
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.
