Another Icon of Evolution Takes a Shot

Antibiotic resistance is a serious problem for the medical community. It has also been erroneously — and often disingenuously — used as an icon evidence for Darwinian evolution. This happened because people illogically conflated observed natural selection and unobserved evolution; bacteria remained bacteria and didn't bother to evolve into something else.  A study of well-preserved dental tartar in ancient humans revealed antibiotic-resistant bacteria, which threatened the "evidence" icon

By the way, don't get the notion that all bacteria are bad. They were created for a purpose, and are essential for life.

Evolutionists still cling to their cherished icon, but a new problem rode into town. Seems that a tribe in a remote part of Venezuela had visitors on missions. One was a missionary group who wanted to share the gospel and do good things for them, the other wanted to study them from a Darwinian perspective. Turns out that these people also have antibiotic resistance, and scientists are mighty bothered by it.
An isolated tribe in a remote place in Amazonia has antibiotic resistance genes in its gut bacteria.

An icon of evolution is antibiotic resistance. Supposedly, after the introduction of antibiotics in the 20th century, bacteria “evolved” the ability to resist their toxic effects. Since some antibiotics are synthetic, and the body still develops resistance, the story is that evolution is quick to evolve resistance by natural selection.
