Greatest Show on Earth

As most of you know, Richard Dawkins just released his latest book The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution. On his site, there is a link to a recent radio interview with Dawkins. Have a listen, and if you are not convinced by evolution, by all means, read Dawkins' book! Even if you don't want to agree with it, read it to find out the truth for yourself. Look at the strongest case for evolution from a leading expert.

Comparative Molecular Biology is proving that Creationism is true. The evidence demonstrates that the DNA sequence skip resulting in fully designed species. The only direction for information in the DNA is a decrease rather than an increase in information.

For example, a ringworm has 12,000 Genes; however, humans have 25,000 Genes. The only direction that we have evidence for is a ringworm or human losing information in the genes due to mutations

Anon, would you provide documentation for your claims?

lol no wonder you posted Anonymously. To embarrassed to say that rubbish publicly.

Anonymous, if your point is that genome size is indicative of complexity and absolute superiority, then you might be interested in knowing that an Amoeba dubia, an unicellular organism, has a genome 670 billion base pairs in size. An Amoeba proteus has 290 billion base pairs. The human genome, on the other hand, has about 3 billion base pairs. If your point is that mutations only destroy genetic information rather than building it, then I'm afraid you don't know the first thing about information theory.

Comparative Molecular Biology demonstrates that humans have 250 unique genes! The process of skipping 250 genes to get to man's design is awesome proof that evolution is not true. Since all mankind have 99.9% the same genes and no evidence exists of a ladder in the genes to humans, you are left with a missing ladder or as they use to say a missing transitional species.

As I said before, the evidence clearly demonstrates design rather than evolution. Dawkins was simply not honest with the evidence and that is why he lambasts Creationists rather than simply allowing the evidence to speak for itself. He knows the Creationists can easily see the missing ladder in the Genes which is a huge problem for Dawkins.

Now you know the rest of the story.

Wow! of the 20-25,000 genes we have, 250 of them are unique!

That certainly is evidence of special creation!

I know that mister anonymous has convinced me!

BathTub said...

Oh wait....

Of course that fact that half of them are turned off....

Like the gene that allows the production of Vitamin C,

And the fact that we can trace phylogenetic tree of that gene and it matches perfectly with all the other trees created from all the mountains of evidence...

means Mister Anonymous is talking out of his ass.

@Anonymous: That's actually not true. Sequencing human DNA it turns out that the overwhelming majority of the genes we possess are mutations of genes already present in organisms related to us. The only truly novel human genes are those that have been produced by mutations activating otherwise non-coding DNA sequences, and comparing the genome of humans with that of other primates, the number of such genes is roughly in the order of 18.
