Orphan Genes Support Creation

Evolutionists believe that their belief system has predictability, but that is usually inferred through fallacious reasoning: "If life evolved from a common ancestor, we would see genetic features shared. We see genetic features shared, therefore, life evolved from a common ancestor". If you study on it for a spell, you'd see that those jaspers are using fallacious "false cause" reasoning, such as post hoc ergo propter hoc, or maybe the Texas sharpshooter fallacy. For that matter, I've dealt with false cause myself, where some tinhorn claims that I changed something in one of these posts because he posted about it in a forum or made a comment. Except that I've seen their claims regarding my motives and actions after I made the changes. See what I mean about learning to spot logical fallacies being helpful in daily life as well as origins science?


Using fallacious reasoning, evolutionists claim that shared genetic similarities between organisms is evidence for their belief system. "Orphan genes", especially between humans and chimpanzees, fouls up their views.

In the aforementioned gene similarities, there's a factor that causes consternation for evolutionists, and that's called orphan genes. This strange term simply means that certain organisms have unique characteristics for certain creatures, and are not found elsewhere. This is something evolutionists could not predict.

While many are on the prod about alleged similarities between chimpanzee and human genes (conveniently neglecting all the other data showing how dissimilar they are from us), orphan genes between chimps and us are supporting biblical creation science.
Increasingly, orphan genes defy evolution and support the Genesis account of creation. These genes are unique sets of coding sequences specific to particular creatures. This is a big problem for evolutionary ideas to explain. In a recent research report, scientists describe a new set of 1,307 orphan genes that are completely different between humans and chimpanzees.

Orphan genes, as the name implies, are found in no other type of creature and therefore have no evolutionary history. This finding is another key prediction of the creation model. Not only should creatures have similar code for similar functions, but they should also have unique code that makes them distinct from other creatures. In support of this creation prediction, scientists discovered that orphan genes are incredibly important for specific biological processes and traits that correspond with specialized adaptations. Several previous articles published on the ICR news site have described these types of genes discovered in zebrafish and honey bees.
