    #1 Protein Functional Redundancy
    Comparing the sequences of amino acids in ubiquitous proteins confirms the relationship between all living things.

    #2 DNA Functional Redundancy
    Comparison of the DNA that codes for the amino acids of ubiquitous proteins predicts the tree of life with an astonishing degree of accuracy.

    #3 ERVs
    Endogenous retroviruses that infected our ancestors are found in the same place of the genome of our closest primate cousins.

    #4 Smelly Genes
    Hundreds of broken genes that used to code for olfactory receptors in our ancestors are still found in our genome.

    #5 Vitamin C
    Why humans can no longer make their own vitamin C and what that tells us about our species' history.

    Our second biggest chromosome is made up of two of our ancestors' chromosomes stuck end-to-end.

    #7 Human Egg Yolk Gene
    Humans and our primate cousins have the genes for making vitellogenin and they are all broken in the same way.

    #8 Jumping Genes
    Bits of parasitic code called ALU elements prove our common ancestry with primates.

    #9 Less Chewing More Thinking
    A broken gene for a type of muscle fibre we no longer have tells a story about our evolutionary past.

    #10 Non-Coding DNA
    In common with many other species huge amounts of our genome originated as copying errors.

    Great stuff. Thank you Cofty

    Wait, what? We have a creationist here?? I'll watch the video when I'll be bored enough...

  • cofty

    Tenacious If there is anything in the video that you find compelling and you are willing to have a conversation about I would like to do that.

    DNA is the source of the strongest proof of biological evolution. There are many examples I am the above index I would like to hear your thoughts on.

    For someone who has zero scientific training, higher scientific education or professional experience in the sciences, I think you have done an excellent job in posting (for the umpteenth time) a synopsis of other peoples' work. Thanks for the reminder that your views haven't changed.

    Also as a reminder, thousands of Phd. credentialed scientists & professionals disagree with you and your sources conclusions. Their views haven't changed either, and that really is a fact.

    What the evolutionary "thinkers" believe is that if you find common traits between two things, one of those things came from the other spontaneously.

    That about sums up all the "links" above.

    Evolutionists offer no proof that spontaneous and beneficial mutations have ever taken place. They just have "faith" that it does.

    I know there are plenty of evolutionists here, and I know how they behave towards those who will not accept their nonsense. They are rude and forceful, just like the rest of the evolutionary society who rams their ideas down the throats of society and steamroll over anyone who objects.

    In rejecting Watchtower, which I applaud, most discard everything. They adopt and angry, in your face denial of true science, in favor of pseudoscientific garble.

    ok. Let m have your anger.
