The structure of functional DNA, even in microorganisms, is so complex that even dedicated evolutionary scientists have serious doubts about the ability of the components of DNA to spontaneously form in nature via natural processes. Fred Hoyle wrote: The chance that higher life forms might have emerged in this way is comparable with the chance that ‘a tornado sweeping through a junk yard might assemble a Boeing 747 from the materials therein.’
You would think that a book entitled On the Origin of Species would have no difficulty at all defining such a central term. When you examine that publication for clarification of the word species, Darwin’s only attempt is found here: No one definition has as yet satisfied all naturalists; yet every naturalist knows vaguely what he means when he speaks of a species. Generally, the term includes the unknown element of a distinct act of creation.
Before anyone allows his or her imagination to run wild, the title of this piece is intended to illustrate a point. A point that should already be abundantly clear – that the basic building blocks of all living things, Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), are found in varying amounts in every living organism on planet Earth.
In 1953, James Watson and Francis Crick were able to build upon the work of English chemist and X-ray crystallographer Rosalind Franklin. She made contributions to the understanding of the molecular structures of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid), RNA (ribonucleic acid), viruses, coal, and graphite. Because Dr. Franklin died of cancer at the age of 37 in 1958, she was not honored along with Watson, Crick and British physicist and molecular biologist Maurice Wilkins who all shared the Nobel Prize for their
I’m pretty sure you thought it could not get any sillier than the City of New York announcing there are 31 genders from which people can now describe themselves. That’s right, you can now use a minimum of 31 gender designations when making references to human beings. The city fathers assure us that any violation of such designations will not end in a fine or jail, yet. Facebook lists between 56 and 58 depending on when you asked them, while
