Re: Human male infertility, the Y chromosome, and dinosaur extinction
Did you notice it?
No, but why should we? It's just another failure of peer review.
Probably a failure of the editors to find competent reviewers -- the
name of the journal sounds like it's only about humans.
The [untested and probably untestable] absence of such a genetic sex
determining mechanism in dinosaurs may have led to a skewed sex ratio
when global temperature dramatically changed 65,000,000 years ago,
resulting in a preponderance of males, and consequentially a rapid
decline in population.
For crying out loud, this crackpottery is not even new! It's been out
there for _decades_!
I can go at length into why it's crackpottery. Is anyone interested?
Probably it has all been discussed on this list several times already.
