At ScienceDaily: “It’s like an engine mechanic who has a set of tools at his disposal,” Dr. Sung said. “The tool he uses depends on the issue that needs to be repaired. In like fashion, each DNA repair tool in our cells is designed to repair a distinctive type of break in our DNA.”
Physics was “hiding its deepest mysteries” thousands of years ago too before anyone uncovered laws for how it works. There are still mysteries in physics, of course, but they are now more basic. The laws are now known. Let’s hope the same proves true for biology.
We didn’t realize that people still took Dollo’s Law seriously.
Preisser: Actually, this experiment runs counter to what one ought to expect if the evolutionary paradigm were actually true.
And starts to acknowledge some harsh realities that most Darwinists drown in a word salad of obfuscation.
Remember the guy who showed us a CD of his genome and said this is me? Naw, we didn’t think so at the time either, but read on…
Some think it might just be bacterial DNA but, as Bailleul points out, how hard is it to tell bacterial genetic material from dino stuff?
Hey, wasn’t this de novo genes thing the alternative reading at Mass for, you know, Genesis 1, where God speaks and all kinds of life forms pop out of nothing? Hmmm. Give it time.
A friend tells us that Michael Lynch of the Biodesign Institute of Arizona State) has argued that the spliceosome is so complex, because it just couldn’t help being that way. Here’s a question: How did such an explanation get to be called “science”?
Open access: Abstract: In eukaryotic cells, with the exception of the specialized genomes of mitochondria and plastids, all genetic information is sequestered within the nucleus. This arrangement imposes constraints on how the information can be tailored for different cellular regions, particularly in cells with complex morphologies like neurons. Although messenger RNAs (mRNAs), and the proteins Read More…
Those people probably didn’t know that they were supposed to organize their lives for the convenience of future researchers. 😉
So far a Siberian flower and a date palm have been brought back. The idea is that restoring n extinct animal like the woolly mammoth would just be a curiosity but some of these plants may be staple foods or useful medicines.
Presumably, viruses don’t need to follow rules of heredity.
“He [Swamidass] is joined by atheist biologist Nathan Lents who has given his support to the book, believing that it may help Christians who hold to a traditional understanding of the Adam and Eve story, to also accept evolutionary science. “
David Curtis: We can now measure genetic potential directly from genetic markers and what we know from this is that these genetic predictors perform extremely badly. We can also tell that there are many important, very rare genetic variants which we will never be able to identify.
