I don’t see it that way.

I mean no offense. Truly. But so what? You're not a biologist/geneticist. What difference does your lay-opinion make? Your lay-opinion is not as good as facts. And your lay-opinion is not as good as that of an expert in the field. Not just yours. My opinion isn't either.

A person (not just you) looks foolish saying "I'm not an expert in your field but I don't agree with you about this fact within your field", which is basically what you're saying.

It's not Appeal to Authority if you're reference actual experts in the field.
