Human Genome Overturns The Philosophy of Biology

Good news coming from the 10th year anniversary of  the Genome project. In celebration of the remarkable work that was conducted, science has dedicated a number of interesting articles on the subject. Most of the articles go into great detail on the different findings that conflicted with their predictions based on evolution. The articles do not identify human evolution but what they do say, we have an incredible array of specified complexity behind our smiley faces!

John Mattick from the University of Queensland concludes

“These observations suggest that we need to reassess the underlying genetic orthodoxy, which is deeply ingrained and has been given superficial reprieve by uncritically accepted assumptions about the nature and power of combinatorial control.”

“As Nobel laureate Barbara McClintock wrote in 1950: “Are we letting a philosophy of the [protein-coding] gene control [our] reasoning? What, then, is the philosophy of the gene?  Is it a valid philosophy?” … There is an alternative: Human complexity has been built on a massive expansion of genomic regulatory sequences, most of which are transacted by RNAs that use generic protein infrastructure and control the epigenetic mechanisms underpinning embryogenesis and brain function. I see the human genome not simply as providing detail, but more importantly, as the beginning of a conceptual enlightenment in biology.”

The dogma of genetics in evolution tells of a story on how DNA is the master controller of heredity, translating its information into proteins that create our bones, feet, legs, hands and brains.  But what they discovered was the number of genes is far smaller than expected (only 1.5% of human DNA contains genes), and the rest is non-coding DNA which was assumed to be leftover junk that generates RNA, which regulates the expression of genes, especially during development.

Maynard Olson from the University of Washington, Seattle asked, “What Does a ‘Normal’ Human Genome Look Like?” He is alluding to what minor players are there in variation. Holders of the dogma of genetics in evolution might be a bit thrown back with this comment, “balancing selection, the evolutionary process that favors genetic diversification rather than the fixation of a single ‘best’ variant”; instead, he continued, this “appears to play a minor role outside the immune system.”

These are quite remarkable days in the history of science, the philosophy of biology (based on Darwinism) that ruled the 19th and 20th centuries is now considered invalid. When it comes to evolution, nothing in biology obtains clarity! It’s an endless search for answers that lead to nowhere. This is because evolution is the wrong framework. The human genome project confirms what the Bible says, and that is God created all things!
