Intelligent Design

Post by Turdacious » Thu Jun 07, 2018 3:38 pm

Landmark new research that involves analyzing millions of DNA barcodes has debunked much about what we know today about the evolution of species.

In a massive genetic study, senior research associate at the Program for the Human Environment at Rockefeller University Mark Stoeckle and University of Basel geneticist David Thaler discovered that virtually 90 percent of all animals on Earth appeared at right around the same time.

More specifically, they found out that 9 out of 10 animal species on the planet came to being at the same time as humans did some 100,000 to 200,000 years ago.

"This conclusion is very surprising," says Thaler, "and I fought against it as hard as I could."

Discuss. My guess is the additional speciation is a result of Andy97 getting busy

That's out of the animal species currently on the planet. Nothing said about dinosaurs etc. (since we don't have any of their DNA). So nothing to do with intelligent design and everything to do with bottlenecking of species.

Cool source article.

Everybody knows the dinosaurs were killed from inhaling second hand smoke from cheap cigarettes somebody bought from a reservation.

And some species are assholes, this is clearly.

I like the cut of their mitochondrial DNA

Never heard that phrase before, that's interesting.
“War is the remedy our enemies have chosen. Other simple remedies were within their choice. You know it and they know it, but they wanted war, and I say let us give them all they want.”
