Genetics Further Supports Biblical Timeline

Goo-to-geneticist evolution is usually portrayed as settled science with a few kinks to be worked out, and yee haw boy howdy, new discoveries support it. In reality, not much in science is settled. Evolutionists are constantly slapping leather with each other over important details.

People accept the views popularized in the secular science media, so it may come as a shock that the dominant Out of Africa (or Recent African Origin) model is disputed and has several variations. It also has serious flaws.

Out of Africa evolutionary beliefs are not as unified as people think. Genetics refutes these models, biblical creationists found support for creation.

After the RAO model was galloping along, DNA sequencing caused several problems and four main subdivisions were developed. Those didn't solve the problem of mitochondrial and  Y-chromosome genetic clocks that were refuting it. Creation scientists did a passel of work that secular scientists were neglecting, and found that data corresponds to the biblical population models going back to Babel. That brings up the unthinkable to secularists: more strong evidence for recent creation.
The recent human evolution story is a quagmire of ever-changing speculations that vary and conflict in their dates and geographical specifics with each new paleoanthropological or archaic DNA sequence discovery. The current general consensus is often termed the recent out-of-Africa model that postulates anatomically modern humans migrated out of Africa about 100,000 to 200,000 years ago. While various versions of the hypothetical evolutionary story exist, an increasing body of research in both the creationist and secular spheres is vindicating the Bible’s timeline of a global-Flood-based genetic bottleneck about 4,500 years ago and a recent creation about 6,000 years ago. In this review, I cover the overwhelming evidence from genetics research of various flavors that fully vindicates a biblical picture of human origins.

This is a rather technical article, but for those inclined to get something out of it, finish reading at "Out of Babel—not Africa: genetic evidence for a biblical model of human origins".
