I'm looking for a ballpark answer.

What percentage of mutations do the evos claim are:
Harmful
Neutral
beneficial.

But it's not that simple:

The probability of mutation at any point in the genome is not equal:

Moreover, I think the categorization as 'neutral' generally considers only first order effects.

I know you want everything to be very simple, but actual science takes time to understand.

Well link #1 didn't answer the question.

...neither did link number 2.

And the evos want us to believe their bull.

The evos want you to use your head for something other than a fanny plug.

You asked a question. I told you that the answer isn't that simple. It's as if you were insisting on a scalar answer to an inherently vector question.

What is the percentage of mutation is the supposed human chimp split that are beneficial as compared to the neutral ones and the harmful mutations?

You want us to make up numbers like you do?

The answer is 42. Everybody knows that.

IFF ... stop feeding the troll.
