Neo-Darwinists believe our ancestry includes aquatic invertebrates that changed into aquatic vertebrates that changed into reptiles that changed into small egg-laying mammals that changed into small placental mammals that changed into primates that changed into humans, ultimately as a result of unique historically distinct identical mutations in the eggs and sperm of mating individuals. But does this hypothesized historical sequence of mutations accurately predict what the Human Genome Project proves about the segmentation of our genome? Are the parts for our supposedly oldest traits, from aquatic invertebrates, separate from the parts for our supposedly later traits from aquatic vertebrates? Are these parts separate from the parts for our supposedly later traits from reptiles? Are these parts separate from the parts for our supposedly later traits from small egg-laying mammals? Are these parts separate from the parts for our supposedly later traits from small placental mammals? Are these parts separate from the parts for our supposedly later traits from primates? Are these parts separate from the parts for our supposedly most recent human traits? If the DNA configurations causing these traits arose separately, they must occur separately on the genome. Otherwise, there is no genetic evidence that these traits originated according to the Neo-Darwinian model. Lydia Hazel 1468 S. Poplar Camp Makanda, IL 618-549-1148/618-525-1148
