Oh, sure. How could I? :-))
>I believe using DYS464 for quantitative purposes, such as coming up with a GD or something analagous to it, or a variance, is mostly a waste or inefficient use of time.
I suggest you to leave beliefs to the church. In science you suppose to know, particularly when you say something publicly. In that regard your "belief" reflects an impressive ignorance. You have not looked at the references on DYS464 though they were just a click away, you have not looked at the recent paper in Advances in Anthropology, the link to which was given here earlier, and in which the mutation rate constant for the 67 marker haplotypes was carefully considered using thousands of haplotypes, and, as you might have heard, it includes DYS464.
I suggest you to educate yourself a little bit, and only then express your opinion. Otherwise you are not qualified.
