The fact that known natural biological processes can produce non-tree-like patterns is problematic not for ID proponents but for proponents of common ancestry.
The tree-like pattern from the dataset was not very strong. Of course, if you shuffle it, it looks strong compared to randomness.
Erika is pursuing her Master’s of Research in Primate Biology, Behavior and Conservation and is the creator of hundreds of punchy, entertaining YouTube videos.
I would argue that a chronology of exactly what was predicted when is not dispositive as to whether a positive argument can be made.
