Patriarchal Drive is a strange phrase with profound implications. Simply put, very old people having children in a population adds many extra mutations per child. In the biblical model, centuries-old people would have been having children within a fairly small population. This creates a recipe for very long early branches on the family tree to form, and the length of these branches does not equal ‘time’. Hence, the molecular clock hypothesis is invalidated in the biblical model.
