A 6000 year-old “Eve”

How long does it take for mutation-driven evolution  of the human brain to occur?

If you don’t know,  we could compare your guess in the context of how long it takes for  nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled adaptive evolution of the human brain to occur.  For example: “The findings confirm their earlier work suggesting that the majority of variants, including potentially harmful ones, were picked up during the past 5,000–10,000 years.” Also:  As Gibbons (1998) noted, by using the modified putative genetic clock, Eve would not have lived 200,000 years ago, as Cann et al. had contended, but only 6000 years ago.”  

When I read about results from studies that so clearly appear to refute beliefs in mutation-initiated natural selection, I wonder what others think the results mean, or if they simply ignore them because the results challenge their beliefs.

James Vaughn Kohl was the first to accurately conceptualize human pheromones, and began presenting his findings to the scientific community in 1992. He continues to present to, and publish for, diverse scientific and lay audiences, while constantly monitoring the scientific presses for new information that is relevant to the development of his initial and ongoing conceptualization of human pheromones.
