"Haldane's Dilemma" is a joke which proceeds from an illicit premise based on the false assumption that only one gene is "fixed" at a time, with no other coincident and/or inter-ralational gene fixing going on simultaneously, and entirely overlooks the fact the bearer of a gene is itself the bearer of genes from two other gene bearers, themselves each the product of yet 2 more gene bearers etc etc etc ... a factual happenstance which exponentially alters the math behind Haldane's proposition. Genetic drift is not an explosive single event, its is the inexorable result of the action of winds of change upon entire populations. One raindrop is not a flood, but get enough raindrops together at roughly the same time and place, give 'em some time, and you've got a flood.
Somehow fitting though, that the ID-iot crowd would sieze on a "proof" founded on an invalid assumption as a validation for the invalid assumption which is their proposition.
Oh, btw, did you catch this?

Research into how evolution works has been named top science achievement of 2005, a year that also saw fierce debate erupt over "intelligent design".
The prestigious US journal Science publishes its top 10 list of major endeavours at the end of each year.
The number one spot was awarded jointly to several studies that illuminated the intricate workings of evolution.
The announcement comes in the same week that a US court banned the teaching of intelligent design in classrooms ...
Top 5 Science Magazine breakthroughs of 2005"
Winner: Evolution in action. Genome sequencing and painstaking field observations shed light on the intricacies of how evolution works.
Runner up: Planetary blitz. Europe's Huygens probe touched down on Saturn's moon Titan in January. It was joined by a fleet of other explorers, including Nasa's Deep Impact, which smashed a hole in a comet.
3) In bloom. Molecular biologists pinned down several of the molecular cues responsible for spring's vibrant burst of colour.
4) Neutron stars. Satellites and ground telescopes shed light on the violent behaviour of neutron stars; city-sized corpses of stars that pack matter into an extreme state.
5) Miswiring the brain. Researchers gained clues about the mechanisms of disorders such as schizophrenia, dyslexia and Tourrete's syndrome.
