Cornelius Hunter on human chromosome 2

Response to Dennis Venema, Part II.

From Cornelius Hunter:

The Naked Ape: BioLogos on Human Chromosome Two

There is one piece of contradictory evidence I did not discuss in my previous article. I omitted it because Venema gives it special emphasis and so it merits its own article. This evidence is that while we humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes, for a total of 46, the chimpanzee, bonobo and gorilla each have 24 pairs of chromosomes, for a total of 48.

In my previous article I pointed out several differences in the primate genomes that contradict evolutionary theory. This difference in chromosome count is yet another fundamental problem for evolution. According to evolution, humans have 23 rather than 24 pairs of chromosomes because of a chromosome fusion event in our past history. Early in our evolutionary history we had 24 pairs of chromosomes, but the fusion event reduced this number to 23. In fact, evolutionists such as Venema present this evidence as yet another great confirmation of their theory. You can see other examples of this here and here.

But this claim made by evolutionists is at odds with the science. There are many problems with their claim, and they fall into two major categories. More.

    Does Dr. Hunter no longer have author privileges here? He used to always post simultaneously on his blog as well as here. I have noticed that his last few blog posts have not appeared here.

    So? Why don’t you state what you think ought to be the case and defend what you think ought to be the case by reference to objective morality?

    OOPS!

    If making fun of me brings purpose to his otherwise meaningless life, who am I to complain? It is the Christian thing to do.

    That’s true. I think he needs a new hobby though.

    Maybe he could try insulting people at TSZ.
