BOMBSHELL: “Consensus” Theory Of Evolution Of The
Species Falls Apart; New Mitochondrial DNA Study Reveals NO Animal Species More Than 200,000 Years Old
-by Isabelle Z.
A surprising new study is casting serious doubt on the popular theory that modern
animals are the result of millions of years of evolution. After looking at the mitochondrial DNA of thousands of animal species, including humans, researchers reached the stunning conclusion that
nearly every species dates back just 100,000 to 200,000
The study was carried out by the University of Basel’s David S. Thaler
and The Rockefeller
University’s Mark Young Stoeckle. According to the conventional narrative of evolution involving adaption based on genetic mutations and survival of the fittest, one would
expect older species and those with big populations spread across the planet to have greater genetic
variation. However, the researchers actually found that 90 percent of the animal species have mitochondrial DNA variation that is similarly low.
The scientists were taken aback by the finding. Thaler said: “This conclusion is very
surprising, and I fought against it as hard as I could.” After all, the common notion that theevolution of
species on our planet has been a progressive and slow process is rarely challenged by scientific studies.
This study took a different approach than those of the past, which have looked at
nuclear DNA. Every animal has DNA in its mitochondria. One of the genes found in mitochondria, COI, is used for DNA barcoding. While nuclear DNA differs dramatically from species to species, animals
have the same mitochondrial DNA, making a good basis for comparison.
After analyzing these barcodes across 100,000 species, they discovered strong
evidence that almost all animals emerged right around the time humans did. This was because there was no variation in the “neutral” mutations, or slight DNA changes across generations that don’t
impact an individual’s odds of survival. The similarity of these neutral mutations to one another can be likened to the rings in a tree in terms of their ability to indicate a species’ approximate
Humans, animals remarkably similar
It’s also very interesting to note their findings that the genetic differences
between humans around the world aren’t any greater than the differences between any two pigeons or any other animals. According to Stoeckle, “Culture, life experience and other things can
make people very different but in terms of basic biology, we’re like the birds.
“By determining the genetic variety within species of the animal kingdom, made
possible only recently by the burgeoning number of DNA sequences, we’ve documented the absence of human exceptionalism.”
How can it be that the vast majority of animal life is approximately the same age,
genetically speaking? According to their findings, most – if not all – animal species actually got their start 200,000 years ago with their mitochondrial clock essentially set at zero. They were
believed to have gotten their start with small “founding” populations that later expanded, possibly in response to extreme conditions like the last ice age. This means that the possibility of intelligent design is still very much on the table, despite what Darwinian
adherents would have you believe.
My Questions Challenging Darwin's Theory
-By Paul A
Indeed, ever since its publication in 1859 Charles Darwin's book 'The Origin of
Species' has caused much debate but has been considered by many to be the only logical/rational explanation as to how life came about: The formation of more complex organisms from simpler
pre-existing ones over time through natural selection. However, it must be remembered that Darwin's theory of evolution is only opinion based. I make this point because many people, such as
scientists, make 'leaps of faith' in the theory by sometimes stating, in so many words, that it's a fact... see more
