    You mean the specificity of a protein?

    No we are not. We are working toward the falsification of theories and hypothesis based on objective verifiable evidence without a religious agenda.

    And the claim is not that evolution is impossible, but that macro-evolution is improbable. As in the mutation of a protein to form a new function.
    The problem is that no hypothesis has been been found falsifiable to demonstrate this assertion based on a religious agenda. One serious problem is you cannot falsify the negative. Second, is the assertion of 'improbability,' which involves a unethical misuse and misrepresentation of probability and statistics, by the advocates of ID.

    I mean for example, a new binding site.

    In this paper, we report the results of the stochastic simulation of the time to fixation of new [multi-residue] features by what we consider to be the conceptually simplest route: point mutation in the absence of recombination in a duplicated gene that is free of purifying selection.

    I believe The Lurch already responded to this. Why the repeat?

    Had some time off from the internet. I believe things were left off with me intending to read the papers at issue to figure out how they calculate their really small numbers.
