Bioluminescence Befuddles Evolution Believers

Bioluminescence, the ability of various organisms to "glow in the dark" because of their unique biology, is extremely puzzling to evolutionary scientists.
How such an ability allegedly evolved is frustrating, and scientists argue in circles in their attempts to explain it. There are two significant problems — neither of which bother creationists in the least.
Evolutionary researchers organize all of these basic forms onto a preconceived “tree of life” that supposedly shows how closely related each form might be to another, assuming all creatures share common ancestry. Evolutionists expect one creature to have evolved bioluminescence and then to have passed that trait along to its descendants. However, the researchers do not find this or any other evolutionary pattern. Instead, bioluminescence is scattered willy-nilly among dozens of totally different life forms.
The study authors, publishing in the Annual Review of Marine Science, wrote, “The distribution of bioluminescence across the major taxonomic [animal] groups does not appear to follow any obvious phylogenetic [evolutionary] or oceanographic constraint.” This mismatch between theory and reality presents the first obstacle evolutionists face.
