haha! i love that picture! and this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxmoduQvWtc .... there is not one SINGLE example of a genetic mutation that results in an increase of information to the genetic evolutionary process and proves that this theory is a lie in a single sentence. Thanks to science DNA itself is in fact a language and proves an intellegent designer ... however they will not believe it ... Acts 13:41 ‘Look, you scoffers, be astounded and perish; for I am doing a work in your days, a work that you will not believe, even if one tells it to you.’
I could only sit and stare at this article in disbelief. I Have to assume that this is in some way a joke...a social experiment..something other than a real geneticist Actually presenting this as a real theory. Since the very bottom of the barrel of laws of genetics contradicts this possibility anywhere in nature, even a grade school child could probably tell you such a theoretic "mule" can't happen (outside of a lab)....much less someone with a PHD. My only thought is...someone is really testing the intelligence of the public to see how much "scientific" sounding blabber is necessary to get the public to buy into anything.
"A chimp-pig hybrid origin for humans?
(Phys.org) —These days, getting a Ph.D. is probably the last thing you want to do if you are out to revolutionize the world. If, however, what you propose is an idea, rather than a technology, it can still be a valuable asset to have. Dr. Eugene McCarthy is a Ph.D. geneticist who has made a career out of studying hybridization in animals. He now curates a biological information website called Macroevolution.net where he has amassed an impressive body of evidence suggesting that human origins can be best explained by hybridization between pigs and chimpanzees. Extraordinary theories require extraordinary evidence and McCarthy does not disappoint. Rather than relying on genetic sequence comparisons, he instead offers extensive anatomical comparisons, each of which may be individually assailable, but startling when taken together. Why weren't these conclusions arrived at much sooner? McCarthy suggests it is because of an over-dependence on genetic data among biologists. He argues that humans are probably the result of multiple generations of backcrossing to chimpanzees, which in nucleotide sequence data comparisons would effectively mask any contribution from pig.
When I asked McCarthy if he could give a date estimate for the hybridization event, he said that there are a couple broad possibilities: (1) It might be that hybridization between pigs and apes produced the earliest hominids millions of years ago and that subsequent mating within this hybrid swarm eventually led to the various hominid types and to modern humans; (2) separate crosses between pigs and apes could have produced separate hominids (and there's even a creepy possibility that hybridization might even still be occurring in regions where Sus and Pan still seem to come into contact, like Southern Sudan).
This latter possibility may not sound so far-fetched after you read the riveting details suggesting that the origin of the gorilla may be best explained by hybridization with the equally massive forest hog. This hog is found within the same habitat as the gorilla, and shares many uncommon physical features and habits. Furthermore, well-known hybridization effects can explain many of the fertility issues and other peculiarities of gorilla physiology.."
Please, someone tell me this is a joke and they are not Really trying to convince people of this ridiculousness....
