What Characters Should Baraminology Use?

The question of character choice, particularly for statistical baraminology, is one I’ve been mulling over for a while. That proper character selection can have a massive impact on the outcome of a baraminological study should be obvious from the very first application of statistical baraminology by Robinson and Cavanaugh back in 1998. Using DNA, ecological, karyotypic and morphometric data, they lumped apes and humans into the same baramin. Given human uniqueness according to the Bible (Genesis 1:26-28), this is an impossible result.
