Trichinella spiralis which a larvae that can infest pigs and wild game, hibernating in muscle tissue within a protective cyst. It also causes trichinosis in humans when they eat pork that is under cooked. Most estimates from a evolutionary standpoint, estimate the age of this parasite to around 20 million years old.
A study was conducted by the USDA where the DNA of the Trichinella spiralis was gathered from 28 different countries. It revealed some very interesting results.
If 20 million years was around the parasite’s age, then different geographical locations should yield distinct groups that retain ancient familiar mutations. Sounds logical if this hypothesis was a valid one. However, what scientists did find revealed some surprises at least from an evolutionist standpoint. The experiment consists an array of collected parasite samples from Europe, North Africa and the Americas. The DNA results showed the samples were uniformed.
This means the statistical analyses grouped all forty four samples from all evaluated regions into a single ‘Western’ group of T. spiralis! There were no mutated differences for various groups as the evolutionary theory had predicted. In fact, it appears they never evolved at all, which is quite consistent with creationism.
The main reason why the parasites have so few mutations were discovered is because the Trichinella spiralis are not 20 million years old. Rather they only been around for thousands of years. Experimental science takes presented over theory. Not theory taking presented over experimental science as we see in evolution.
You can use the same detection theory for genes using human DNA. The remarkable similarities we find that are between the raw sequences and organized structures demonstrates humans are much younger than the evolutionary time table always predicts, but very much confirms the model for a young earth in creationism. Detecting age in animals or humans using genes is just one of the ways in trying to determine the age of the earth and those who live in it.
