On September 25, 2003, cnn.com carried a report headed “Dog DNA reveals man"s link with best friend” The report dealt with a study on the DNA of a male poodle performed by Ewen F. Kirkness and his team. Cnn.com interpreted the results of the research from an evolutionist perspective, writing that man is closer to the dog than to the mouse. It carried the following comments from Craig Venter, of the human genome project, regarding the research:
We are much closer to the dog than to the mouse in terms of our gene content ... but if you do the evolutionary tree we are on the same linage as the mouse. The mouse is evolving at a much faster rate.
This claim by Venter rests on no evidence at all and merely reflects his own prejudices. What is being done here is to set out the differences in the nucleotide strings in the genes of these living things and to calculate them according to the molecular clock, which evolutionists regard as a measuring device. However, all these calculations constitute no evidence whatsoever for the theory of evolution, and merely reflect the fantasies of Darwinists, who have adopted evolution as a dogma.
In fact, there is not a single fossil record to show that these living things, or indeed any other mammal, evolved from a common ancestor. Furthermore, the molecular clock analyses in question are flawed from a number of points of view. You can read one of our papers on Darwinists’ errors regarding molecular clock analyses and the vicious circle they reveal within them HERE.
Our advice to cnn.com, which fails even to mention the use of the imagination and prejudice underlying Venter’s claims as it reports on them, is to abandon its support for evolutionary fairy tales and to accept that the origin of life is intelligent design.2003-10-25 00:00:00
