The one thing result from the Human Genome Project that no-one can argue with is that the data shows we all share one common family tree. We are all One Human Race.
The Human Genome Project provides the answers.
Darwin’s mid-19th century ridiculously unscientific ideas continue, obstinately and pathetically, to be propagated despite enormous strides in scientific discoveries made in the 150 + years since.
In 1944 DNA was identified as the structure of inheritance and determined to consist of just four different molecules which always combine in the same base pairs – C with G and A with T. Like the letters of the alphabet forming words, or, more closely, the binary computer bits of 0 and 1, the DNA base pairs can be lined up in an infinite variety of sequences and numbers to form genes. Just like books are vastly different depending on the sequence and number of letters forming words, all living things are distinguished by the number and arrangements of DNA in their genes.
In 1953 the double helix nature of DNA was famously visualized, but it took the advent of highly functioning computers in the 1990’s to unravel the complete sequence of human DNA. In 2003 a rough draft of the human genome, i.e. complete set of genes to build and operate a human being, was discovered to consist of over 3 billion pairs.
Darwinists immediately claimed that the HGP provided scientific evidence for evolution because “humans are 99 percent identical to chimps.”
However, that was an unscientific propaganda stunt made when “only 28 percent of the genome had reached the finished standard” of coverage and error rate. Further scientific refinements in discoveries and analyses of the data proved this claim to be false as there is only about 95% genetic similarity between humans and chimps.
If you are thinking that 5% genetic difference still sounds significant enough to support evolution, think again. By Darwinians’ own criteria, 5% genetic difference is large, separating cats out of the same family into different subfamilies, genera, and species.
Unlike the compared cats, humans and chimps aren’t even in the same family. Our differences separate us
further back into the primate order, which, with 300 different species, is the third most diverse order of mammals.
So we see that less than 5% genetic difference can account for significant differences between humans and apes.
In any case, similarities in design does not disprove a designer. Just look at cell phones.
Humans are 99.9% genetically identical despite greater differences in appearance than cats
Then it turns out that Darwinians fail to mention that a % difference in genes turns out to be a negligible amount of the total % difference in genome, or total DNA.
By 2012 investigators learned that…
it is an astonishing fact that protein-coding sequences, which are what we mostly mean when we say “genes,” occupy only a little over 1% of the human genome. [Another] 8% of the genome is nearly all regulatory sequences, DNA that governs the behavior of the 1 percent of DNA that codes for proteins…It was a big surprise to learn that the DNA that regulates genes was eight times bigger…Our genes code for pretty much the same proteins that the genes of mice and rhinos do. What looks like huge differences between our species arise largely from differences in regulation — what point in life a particular protein-coding gene turns on or off, and in what cells.
Fortunately, we can limit ourselves to just genes to understand how humans can be so diverse and yet share the same genome.
1. There are about 20,000 genes in the human genome. These are templates for proteins that, like Legos, are the building blocks of complex physical components such as tissues, organs, nerves, neurotransmitters, hormones, etc. which ultimately define the appearance (image) and behaviors (likeness) of a unique individual.
2. However, all the genes are not active in every individual.
3. Genes always come is a set of two, even when we only need one gene for functionality. Variations of the same gene are called alleles. These provide individual diversity within common species identity.
4. Many variation genes have a dominant (indicated by capital letter) and a recessive (indicated by lower case letter) gene. Usually the recessive gene is overshadowed by the dominant gene, so a child has to inherit a complete set of recessive genes to show the recessive trait.
Adam would have been created with both dominant and recessive genes, therefore passed both types on to his wife in asexual reproduction.
5. Multiple genes (the genotype) usually work together to create the appearance (phenotype). A simple example would be eye color. It is possible to mix the brown and blue genes to produce a green-eyed child.
6. Genes can be changed through mutations which can occur from radiation damage and other chemicals introduced into the body. These changes can be passed to the offspring but do not change the species of the offspring.
7. Genes can be redundant, with multiple copies of the same gene on different chromosomes. These function like a backup generator. In the event an essential gene is damaged by disease or mutation the redundant gene can take over. Not all individuals have these redundant genes which is why some individuals succumb to conditions like radiation poisoning or cancer while others survive.
8. Genes can be locked down or unlocked through epigenetics. This is a recently discovered process in which complex molecules are formed by the cell in response to environmental or bodily conditions, such as overproduction of stress hormones. These molecules connect to the DNA in every cell, including the reproductive cells. This is how parents’ behaviors and exposures can be inherited by descendants even when the parents aren’t around to role model, or the exposure isn’t also experienced by the offspring.
Then there’s the issue of the devolution of the species.
Ten years on from the finishing of the human reference genome sequence, it remains unclear what fraction of the human genome confers function, where this sequence resides, and how much is shared with other mammalian species...
Nearly 99% of the human genome does not encode proteins [definition of a gene], and while there recently has been extensive biochemical annotation of the remaining noncoding fraction, it remains unclear whether or not the bulk of these DNA sequences have important functional roles.
The mysterious apparent lack of functionality of the vast majority of the human genome supports the biblical view that the man Adam
- was created perfectly in God’s hyper dimensional image and likeness,
- was corrupted into a vastly less functional four dimensional state of being,
- but retained the capacity
- to be resurrected back into the original hyper dimensional state of being.
Since the first woman was cloned from bone taken from Adam all the genes that Eve received from Adam and passed down to all of her descendants came from, and can be identified genetically as, the original 1st human. This includes what became unique female DNA in the mitochondria passed only in the egg cell of the mother after her DNA was separated from what became the male gender.
Why is this important?
Christianity typically type casts Jesus Christ as The Seed of The Woman, and he certainly is in terms of the promised destroyer of the Serpent / Sin.
But we shouldn’t overlook the fact that ALL humans are also The Seed of The Woman, therefore all humans in a position to be identified with the Promised Seed Deliverer/ Messiah / Christ.
- For since by [hu]man came death,
- by[hu] man came also the resurrection of the dead.
- For as in Adam all die,
- even so in The Designated Seed Savior / Christ shall all be made alive.
- But every man in his own order:
- Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.
- Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father;
- when he shall have put down all [rule and all authority and power. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death…
- And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; [in the image and likeness of God]
- the last Adam [uniquely like the first made in the image and likeness of God] was made a quickening spirit.” (I Corinthians 15:20-45)
“If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly. Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me…they [that] follow me…I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish,..I and my Father are one.” (John 10:24-29)
Believing in and following Jesus Christ / Yeshua haMessiach / YHVH’s Designated Savior is believing in YHVH and his promises based on his hyper dimensional works of Creation.
