Pixie believes that commonness equates to descent!!!! She tries the typical old and tired ploy that humans and chimp DNA is 94% similar (she still thinks its closer to 99%... proven wrong of course). What Pixie misses is the clear concept of DNA similarity...and shooting down her precious theory but showing we are not dolphins.. over the head it seems that common DNA segments do not equate to common descent.
Martin Believes Evolution Says People Are Descended From Dolphins?!?This needs a post of its own.
I never said you believe it. I said you believe evolution says it, as you have just confirmed.
This is such an incredible misunderstanding of evolution I am at a loss where you could possibly have got it from. I am sure no creationist organisation says anything so ridiculous.
So now Pixie thinks that because we can't find the gaps..missing records or other genetic evidences ..we must be just evolved chimps... <insert chimp noises here> What Pixie continues to hide from are the hard questions and avoidance of the differences that make it more clear...why humans are not chimps... here is a good read - and listen that kicks her precious evo-devo theory to the curb:
"You can knock out a gene that encodes a protein for an inner ear bone in say a mouse. This has been done. And then you can take a protein that is similar to it but from a fruit fly. And fruit flies aren’t vertebrates and they certainly are not mammals., so they don’t have inner ear bones. And you can plug that gene in and guess what happens? The offspring of the mouse will have a perfectly normal inner ear bone. So you can swap out all these files. I mentioning this to you because when you hear about we are 99% similar (to chimps) it is almost all referring to those protein coding regions. When you start looking, and you start comparing different mammals. Dolphins, aardvarks, elephants, manatees, humans, chimpanzees,, it doesn’t really matter. What you find is that the protein coding sequences are very well conserved, and there is also a lot of the DNA that is not protein coding that is also highly conserved. But when you look at the chromosomes and those banding patterns, those bar codes, (mentioned at the beginning of the talk), its akin to going into the grocery store. You see a bunch of black and white lines right? You’ve seen one bar code you’ve seen them all. But those bar codes are not the same.,, Here’s an example, aardvark and human chromosomes. They look very similar at the DNA level when you take small snippets of them. (Yet) When you look at how they are arranged in a linear pattern along the chromosome they turn out to be very distinct "
