Darwin Still Scratching His Head

Evolutionism More and More Like Alchemy

Oh, dear.  Evolutionism is being attacked by its own.  Not intentionally, of course.  It's just that the data is falsifying the West's favorite religious belief. carried an article describing the shock-waves that have begun to assail evolutionism, entitled, "Sweeping gene survey reveals new facets of evolution".  The wack-a-mole conclusions of recent research undertaken by Mark Stoeckle from The Rockefeller University in New York and David Thaler at the University of Basel in Switzerland can be summarized as follows:
For the planet's 7.6 billion people, 500 million house sparrows, or 100,000 sandpipers, genetic diversity "is about the same," he told AFP.  The study's most startling result, perhaps, is that nine out of 10 species on Earth today, including humans, came into being 100,000 to 200,000 years ago.

"This conclusion is very surprising, and I fought against it as hard as I could," Thaler told AFP.  That reaction is understandable: How does one explain the fact that 90 percent of animal life, genetically speaking, is roughly the same age?
That's the first neutron bomb.
  This particular missile had two warheads:  the first is that most life on this planet came into existence recently.  Gone are the assertions of millions upon millions of years during which life evolved by chance.  The second warhead on the missile was that animal life as we know it came into existence at the same time.

These findings cut the beating heart out of Evolutionism.   The rest is history, as they say.  But there is too much human and financial capital invested in the reigning dogma.  Rearguard actions by egregiously mistaken scientists and their establishments will doubtless persist.  Reputations and careers are at stake.

A second neutron bomb also exploded out of the research.  This particular bomb has been launched many times, even by Darwin himself, who was left with a self-scratched head.
And yet—another unexpected finding from the study—species have very clear genetic boundaries, and there's nothing much in between.  "If individuals are stars, then species are galaxies," said Thaler. "They are compact clusters in the vastness of empty sequence space."  The absence of "in-between" species is something that also perplexed Darwin, he said.
You have to love the poetic license which deflects away this particular thermo-nuclear explosion.  Species are like galaxies--"compact clusters in the vastness of empty sequence space".  Translation: there aren't any "transition species" or "in-between species" which Evolutionism needs in order to be a credible theory.

Keep looking, fellas.  Those "transition species" have got to be out there somewhere.  Around about now Evolutionism starts to look more and more like alchemy, another pseudo-scientific theory long ago consigned to the dustbin of history.
