Huge Genetic Study: Recent Appearance of Animal Life!

Bob Enyart welcomes co-host Fred Williams back into the Real Science Radio studio after our series with Bryan Nickel. (You may want the accompanying Grand Canyon Special!) Bob and Fred preview next week's program on Hawaii's volcanic eruption and the "hotspot" hypothesis of how the Hawaiian Islands formed. Today they report on the inconvenient volcano beneath the Antarctic ice sheet that's promoting rapid glacier melt and the peer-reviewed study showing that religious people live five to ten years longer than others.

* Two Blockbuster Genetic Studies: First, it turns out that our RNA gets "encrypted" and "decrypted" to prevent the wrong cellular "recipients" from reading the instructions. Secondly, the lead author for a study in the journal Human Evolution reports that “nine out of ten species on Earth today, including humans, came into being 100,000 to 200,000 years ago.” (Of course, as we’ve demonstrated with our List of Not So Old Things, evolutionists have a knee-jerk need to add zeros to the actual data, so if you want to know the truth, you usually have to talk off a zero or more! Then Mark Stoeckle says, “This conclusion is very surprising, and I fought against it as hard as I could.” With adding, “That reaction is understandable: How does one explain the fact that 90 percent of animal life, genetically speaking, is roughly the same age? Was there some catastrophic event 200,000 years ago that nearly wiped the slate clean?” The genetic bottleneck they’re talking about, that’s called, Noah’s Ark.

* RSR Prediction: The genetic diversity pattern of plants will also directly affirm, without secondary assumptions, the biblical creation and flood accounts!
