As science gets better so does increasing the complexity in evolution! Imagine a blind, aimless process which is able to build a super-sensitive vibrating drum attached to various intricate levers that connect to an piano keyboard frequency analysis system, transducing acoustic energy into mechanical energy and then into fluid energy, increasing sensitivity at each step. If one can imagine evolution producing all that once, now imagine it happening twice!
Did evolution predict this? No! The data tends to predict what evolution does not the other way around because the data does match the evolutionary explanation. Detecting the hearing mechanism in “katydid” was never possible before until recently…
“In mammals, hearing is dependent on three canonical processing stages: (i) an eardrum collecting sound, (ii) a middle ear impedance converter, and (iii) a cochlear frequency analyzer. Here, we show that some insects, such as rainforest katydids, possess equivalent biophysical mechanisms for auditory processing. Although katydid ears are among the smallest in all organisms, these ears perform the crucial stage of air-to-liquid impedance conversion and signal amplification, with the use of a distinct tympanal lever system.”
“Further along the chain of hearing, spectral sound analysis is achieved through dispersive wave propagation across a fluid substrate, as in the mammalian cochlea. Thus, two phylogenetically remote organisms, katydids and mammals, have evolved a series of convergent solutions to common biophysical problems, despite their reliance on very different morphological substrates.”
The katydid is a very small creature, about 600 millionths of a meter. As a result, this remarkable discovery about its hearing required an x-ray microtomography along with other state-of-the-art techniques to reveal its structure. Then the authors compared the discovery using a diagram, to three parts of a human ear and katydid ear side by side, showing how analogous the structures are.
But using the term “convergent evolution” doesn’t explain what is going on in nature nor confirms evolution in general. Conclusions often times revolves around circular reasoning. As we seen before in previous falsifications like “divergent evolution,” which starts with speciation first then followed by variations that make the two branches more and more dissimilar over time. But operational science reveals “homologous” traits which comes from a different common ancestor so then “convergent evolution” is invoked.
When using circle reasoning one can come up with an answer and if not one is created for future falsifications. Remember, the data predicts what evolution is going to explain. There was no such prediction that would indicated anything like what was discovered. In real science, predictions are either confirmed or falsified through operational science not by historical science.
What these evolutionist fail to see in their research is that nature has a universal genetic code which is contained in all living things, where this same code is used to create complex organisms in hierarchies with similarities across hierarchies and within hierarchies! That my friend is an observable fact and evidence for a Creator!
