Chimp-Human Genes Evolved Much Faster Than Expected

first_imgIt’s been all over the news lately – human DNA shows surprisingly divergent regions from chimpanzee counterparts.  The Houston Chronicle, for instance, summarizes the find:Searching across the four genomes, the team looked for regions of DNA about 100 letters long that had made the biggest leaps. One, they found, had changed nearly twice as much as any other region, with 18 letters of DNA different between humans and chimps. A similar stretch of chicken DNA, they found, has all but two letters in common with the chimp DNA.The evolutionary explanation is two-fold: (1) this region of human DNA must have evolved 70 times as fast as other parts, and (2) the lack of evolution between chicken and chimp for this region must mean that “this region of the DNA had been stable for a long time, hundreds of millions of years.”    See also Medical News Today and Associated Press report on NC Star News.We just claimed yesterday that “Darwinian evolution is so malleable that it bends itself to every anomaly, and therefore fails” the scientific criteria of testability and verifiability (08/21/2006).  Here’s another example.  Rather than wear sackcloth and ashes and moan and wail over their sins, they spin this story into support for Darwin.  Now they expect to believe that these genes sat there undisturbed for hundreds of millions of years, only to explode into activity after Bonzo’s kid had a mutation, and presto! philosophy.  Gong; next.(Visited 9 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

The value of healthy rivers being examined at meeting

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Ohio’s Environmental Professionals Network (EPN) is holding its next monthly breakfast program March 7 in Columbus, and as the film title goes, a river runs through it.Called “We All Need Healthy Rivers,” the event is a joint meeting with the Water Management Association of Ohio.In all, Ohio has more than 29,000 miles of rivers, and organizers say their health is key to the health of the state’s citizens and environment.The Ohio River, for example, supplies drinking water to more than 5 million people in six states including Ohio, the Ohio River Foundation says. But reports based on U.S. Environmental Protection Agency data have said the Ohio has more industrial pollution than any other river in the nation.Meanwhile, only about 213 miles, or less than 1%, of Ohio’s rivers — including parts of the Big and Little Darby creeks near Columbus — are designated wild and scenic, according to the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System.last_img read more
