What is your basis for saying this? The countless examples of
transposed elements in exactly the same position (and same type,
orientation, etc.) in different mammalian genomes seems to me one of
the strongest sets of evidence for common descent. I gathered earlier
that you reject all this evidence, but I don't know what your
alternative explanation for the phenomenon is. I have not been
following things closely, being up to my eyebrows in grant writing
