  1. Posting this here because I don't know where to put speculative scenarios in this forum. Sometime between the Paleocene and Eocene epochs, there was a mysterious, sudden, dramatic rise in global temperature. This moment in time was known as the "Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum", shortened into "PETM". In just 20 to 50 millennia, the temperature rose by five to eight degrees Celsius, and this heatweave persisted for another 200 millennia (that's just the mean estimate.) While its impact on terrestrial plant and animal life is well-known, the focus of the question is on how the PETM i
  2. So basically a random mutation develops in Syria that gives a high resistance/Immunity to Neurotoxins (I.E. Sarin gas, nerve gas). What i would like to know is the specifics on how(if it is actually possible in the real world) for this gene to spread and be guaranteed to pass on to offspring, but also require both parents to have at least one copy of the gene for it to be active. Optionally, if such a gene is possible: what is the rough growth of this gene in a population from a single carrier after 14 generations, or the formula to calculate it's growth?
