Evolutionary problems with orphan genes.

With the discovery that DNA possesses duplicate strands hiding a coded message, many thought that the mechanism of biological evolution would be proven through the inheritance of this molecule from generation to generation. We are still waiting for a genuine mechanism for evolution to occur so that the theory makes sense.  Seventy years later, the massive amount […]

Cellular Ribosomes: The Origin of Life?

A recent paper in the Journal of Theoretical Biology[i] boasts a solution to the “Many steps in the evolution in cellular life.”  The authors suggest that the ribosome, a cellular machine of tremendous complexity and specificity, may be an important link between cellular metabolism for life and the first living cell (or “last universal common […]

DNA doesn’t lie!

Genetic information is being collected for plants, animals, and bacteria containing whole genomes.  The study of comparative sequencing or synteny was thought by evolutionists to be hard evidence that would re-draw the tree of life showing all creatures are related.  Nothing could be farther from the truth.  A good theory is one that has predictive […]

Origin of Life Research

Ian Musgrave of the Website Talkorigins (http://www.talkorigins.org/faqs/abioprob/abioprob.html) says creationist scientists are fraudulent when they calculate probabilities for the production of a single functional protein entity by purely materialistic means.  These calculations extrapolate logarithmically as additional biomolecules are considering in the search for a rational explanations for the materialistic origins of life. The statistical analysis of probability […]

ENCODEd in the Blueprints for Living

More study of the human genome has revealed the existence of a massive library of digitally coded information in the ‘junk DNA’ left over from millions of years of evolution!  Although touched on in another post, enough cannot be said of the discoveries being made by the ENCODE project of molecular studies of the genome […]

DNA: Evidence of a Master’s Blueprint: Part Two

In Part One of this introductory series on DNA, a brief look at the history of the scientific achievements leading to our current understanding of genetics was presented.  The series of scientific efforts that led to the discovery of the DNA molecule and the subsequent analysis of the molecule showed how genetic information is passed from generation to generation.  The […]
