Some scientists are exploring a part of their story which requires certain genetic instructions and changes to embryonic development. The question they are trying to explain about their story is, how did fish grow feet? They conceptualized it this way…
“A team of researchers identified two new genes that are important in fin development. They report in the journal Nature that the loss of these genes could have been an “important step” in the evolutionary transformation of fins into limbs.”
“Marie-Andree Akimenko, from the University of Ottawa in Canada, led the research. She and her colleagues began their study by looking at the development of zebrafish embryos. They discovered two genes that coded for proteins that were important in the structure of fins.”
Who gave this team of researchers a grant to come up with this? Marie should do her government and the people of Canada a great favor and give the money back! Subtracting genes from animals which are already complex and poof new information emerges in that vacated space which then affects the structure of the animal is total nonsense! Is this how evolution works? Does anyone consider this a ‘theory’? Generally evolutionists proclaim theories are well-tested and a consensus emerges to validate it to a ‘theory’ status.
And lastly, she continues with the nonsense by claiming “whether the fin genes were knocked out to help make the transition.” Knocked out, by what or who? Further work is needed to confirm this ‘theory’ they say. Well let me tell you something, building new skyscrapers doesn’t require bulldozers!
They are going to be knocking themselves out by removing genes from fish to see what emerges. The BBC is certain that this supposed clue was going to shed light on Darwinian evolution, then makes a promise to the public while being misleading, “A study has shed light on a key genetic step in the evolution of animals’ limbs from the fins of fish, scientists say.” Did it really “shed light on a key genetic step” in the evolutionary story?
