Chpt 2, Chopping Down the Evolutionary Tree. But what does chopping down the tree mean? tbc #origin #atheist

The evolutionary tree is used to describe the path simple organisms took to B complex & how they’re related #origin #atheist

Organisms used to be thought of as being in same ‘branch’ or from the same evolutionary ‘root’ #origin #atheist

But now, b/c we know living things share genomes – complex sequences of genes – ancestry is difficult to determine #origin #atheist

Completely different species, unlikely to share a common ancestor have the same complex DNA sequences tbc #origin #origin #atheist

Natural selection and mutation do not explain how ‘unrelated’ creatures can share the same complex DNA sequences #origin #atheist

Should we ‘have faith’ to believe what appears to be impossible: that these complex sequences mutated in parallel #origin #atheist

Or should we believe by faith what appears to be impossible: that complex sequences arose from survival of fittest? #origin #atheist

Now organisms need to be reclassified in their relationship to one another b/c of the DNA they share #origin #atheist

Result: fossil ‘record’, which didn’t support gradual change of one species to another is even more unreliable 4 history #origin #atheist
