Mar 7 '16 at 7:06 comment added avi DNA is not looked at one loci at a time, it is analyzed one at a time and then all of them together let's you know if it is a match or not. The same way our brains process each piece of the face one part at a time.
Mar 6 '16 at 20:21 comment added Y     e     z @mevaqesh not sure what you are looking for... I did cite for R' Elyashiv and R' S.Z. Aurbach, and I'm not sure what you want me to cite for something I heard personally.
Mar 6 '16 at 20:21 comment added Y     e     z @avi Actually, that's the perfect analogy - a nose on its own is it's own piece of evidence. The question is how to view this evidence, and there was one school that viewed it as independent pieces of information. This actually makes some sense particularly here, because DNA is only compared one loci at a time, as opposed to the face which you may see all at once.
Mar 6 '16 at 7:20 comment added avi It would be like saying you can't identify a person by their face, because the nose looks like many noses, and the eyes look like many people's eyes etc..
Mar 6 '16 at 7:14 comment added avi Interesting, but why would anyone consider each loci a separate piece of evidence, and not the whole sum of the collection?
Mar 6 '16 at 6:01 comment added mevaqesh Could you clarify this point? Especially with pertinent citations?
Mar 6 '16 at 4:31 comment added Y     e     z @mevaqesh I didn't qualify it because they didn't - it's valid across the boards.
Mar 4 '16 at 19:35 comment added mevaqesh DNA is valid evidence for what? e.g. ritual matters, monetary matters, etc.
