Usually in other scientific theories when fundamentals are falsified, it eventually withers away and a new theory takes its place. This is something that happens in science but doesn’t happen in evolution. One of the most fundamentals you will find in evolutionary theory is, “common ancestry.” But within this framework it is claimed that there is gradual accumulation of variations which happens over time through genetic mutations. Thus, making it less common over time.
Scientists who believe in evolution are testing this in order to learn more about the variations over time but to their surprise, this is not the case! In a recent study, that compared yeast and humans which should have nothing in common according to evolution, have found lots in common.
“Yeast and humans have been evolving along separate paths for 1 billion years, but there’s still a strong family resemblance, a new study demonstrates. After inserting more than 400 human genes into yeast cells one at a time, researchers found that almost 50% of the genes functioned and enabled the fungi to survive.”
“It’s quite amazing,” says evolutionary biologist Matthew Hahn of Indiana University, Bloomington, who wasn’t connected to the study. “It means that the same genes can carry out the same functions after 1 billion years of divergence.“
In another article which says it’s not only yeast but other organisms as well…
“We’re a step closer to understanding the microbial community that inhabits the ocean — and it has some striking similarities to the community that lives inside our guts. The microbiome of the world’s biggest ecosystem and one of the smallest appear to function in surprisingly similar ways. In both, there was an almost identical abundance of genes involved in replication, ion transport and cell motility.”
“This certainly was rather a big surprise to us because we expected different ecosystems would have microbial communities with functions that would be completely different,” Sunagawa said at a press conference this week.”
One of the things that may have been proof for evolution turns out to be a falsification! Keep in mind, evolution always sounds better within speculation rather than real life. So now what…? Does this mean a fundamental in evolution will wither away and be replaced by another? No! This isn’t normal science. Even though it is believed that genes and proteins should not be conserved but rather a constant state of flux, just adds the opposite (conservation and convergence function) on what it is suppose to predict and observe in real life while maintaining that same fundamental. Sounds confusing, doesn’t it? Not at all logical in any sense of the word.
In creationism, we believe in “common design.” Just like we see with intelligently man-made designed machines. Those machines utilize similar mechanisms in order to achieve that same outcome. There is no need to add the opposite in order to save “common design” from newer observations especially from this latest study and others like it :)
