Another Weak Link in Evolutionary Theory

What Would You Say?

The chemical similarity of living things, long considered reliable evidence for Darwinian evolution, is now in question.    Recently, one study found that “as the enzyme space grows … so do the number of functions.” According to Philosopher of Biology Paul Nelson, there are very few “specific molecules and reactions” common to all living things.     A helpful analogy is similar words within the English language. If we say the sky is “darkened,” we could also say that it became “murky,” “shaded,” “shadowed,” or “dimmed.” All these words mean, more or less, the same thing but with different spellings and histories. According to Nelson, “a strikingly similar pattern” occurs among the chemicals that make life possible.    Essentially, living things don’t look like they evolved from a common ancestor using the same basic components on a molecular level. Instead, many different enzymes are used to accomplish similar purposes. This is precisely the opposite of what Darwinism predicts.  The more we follow the evidence, the more it leads elsewhere.
