Did you hear about the scientific paper (explained here: https://phys.org/news/2018-05-gene-survey-reveals-facets-evolution.html) that showed “that 90 percent of animal life, genetically speaking, is roughly the same age”?
How do we correctly interpret that scientific evidence?
Notice that that is continually the question that we have to ask – and that shows that everyone is forced to say that their assumptions affect how the data is interpreted.
Note the following reactions and comments regarding the scientific paper:
“There was such a tremendous backlash (both pro and con) that the publisher took the unprecedented step of adding a disclaimer to the top margin of the paper. I know of no other examples of something like this in the scientific literature:
‘Note added by authors December 4, 2018: This study is grounded in and strongly supports Darwinian evolution, including the understanding that all life has evolved from a common biological origin over several billion years.
This work follows mainstream views of human evolution. We do not propose there was a single “Adam” or “Eve”. We do not propose any catastrophic events.'”
Dr. Robert Carter of Creation.com continues to analyze that statement: “Their results tell us that most species are young, about the same age, and have about the same amount of genetic diversity among them. If anything supported the biblical idea that many species arose recently from the few ark ‘kinds’, this is it. I guess too many people realized the clear implications of their results!”
