Oceanic RNA Viruses, Creation, and Non-Evolution

One reason scientists do not know many things is that there is a huge amount to learn, so they select certain subjects for analysis. Sometimes they reject a subject out of hand because it has been deemed unimportant. Scientists can hinder their knowledge by being too limited.

The sailing ship Tara is packed with scientists, and they discovered a schooner-full of RNA viruses in the oceans. This child approves (as if they would care) that these researchers wanted to get additional information, as the more harmful viruses get the most attention.

Researchers wanted to broaden their knowledge and discovered many viruses in the oceans. They tainted their research with evolutionary speculations.

Studying a few viruses may give them something to lasso for those under study, but, scientists need to saddle up and ride to the top of the hill for a bigger picture. After all, viruses are important. Some folks think all viruses are bad, but that is incorrect. (Some think all bacteria are bad as well, another error.) Viruses known as bacteriophages chow down on bacteria and keep their populations from getting out of control.

As is so often the case, molecules-to-microbiologist evolution was invoked as an intellectual sacrifice to the Bearded Buddha and tainted their research. Worldview assertions, conjectures, and so on  were made, but actual empirical evidence was neglected. What we have is yet more evidence of the Master Engineer's genius and his intricate design work. If secularists would realize that God makes things for his purposes instead of seeing things through Darwin Spectacles, I'm confident that science would progress much more rapidly.

An international team of scientists onboard the schooner Tara is conducting an ongoing oceanic global study. The research is part of the Tara Oceans Consortium and has identified 5,500 new RNA virus species that represent all five known RNA virus phyla (a taxonomic category). In addition, they have discovered “’an entire phylum, the Taraviricota, . . . found all over the oceans, which suggests they're ecologically important,’ said lead author Matthew Sullivan, professor of microbiology at The Ohio State University.” Indeed, viruses are a fascinating and important foundation in the oceanic web of life God has created. The discovery of these new viral species adds to our understanding of the ocean’s ecosystem.
