Myths Of Creationism


A paper in the January/February Journal of Eukaryotic Microbiology dispels “the myths of intelligent design” by examining the evolution of amoebas and other unicellular organisms.

Proponents of intelligent design claim the Cambrian explosion of 545 million years ago, when the body plans of the ancestors of most animals developed, occurred too rapidly be explained by the gradual process of Darwinian evolution. Biologists Mark Farmer and Andrea Habura point out in their paper that unicellular protistan evolution lasted 1 billion years, providing the genomic diversity from which multicellular organisms arose during that remarkably fertile period.

Evolution skeptics also claim that no one has ever seen the development of a new species, a myth Farmer and Habura tackle by outlining a case in which amoebae became symbiotically dependent upon infecting bacteria. The symbiotically dependent amoebas developed into an undeniably separate species, because attempts to interbreed with the parent stock would infect and kill them.

Great Thread man, S&F. Hopefully we get more disscussion on this topic

Thank you!

At least now the evolution-deniers have one less question to try to stump scientists with.

I’m surprised no one has comment on this yet. You might want to throw this in the metaphysics forum or the creationism forum to get a debate going (if you want that) I personally think this is pretty big step for debunking creationists.

How can I do that without restarting the same thread?

Thanks

Just ask a moderator to change it. They might not allow it since this has to do with science, but also with creationism since it is debunking it. So I think they would allow you to change it over
