Among creationists with background in population genetics, Dr. Felsenstein is respected and even revered even though he is an evolutionist. I feel privileged to have had interaction with him, even when he has been occasionally critical of things I’ve said.
This has really nothing much to do with the origins debate, but I noticed this claim in Wikipedia:
This is how Joseph Felsenstein`s scientific genetic computer software placed them, considering their haplotypes.
The question of Y-Chromosomal Aaron has some religious and political significance to the Jews. If Dr. Felsenstein has any involvement with or opinions on the project, I would be interested to know.
Thank you Joe, in advance.
[UPDATE: I removed the first sentence “Joe Felsenstein holds a unique place among creationists.” That gave the unintended possible meaning that he was a creationist. I changed some of the wording to emphasize he is not a creationist.]
