Kevin R. McCarthy, AKA OgreMKV, science teacher, Ignorant of Genetics
In a recent post Kevin sez:
1) Every living thing on the Earth uses the same genetic code. This shouldn’t be in dispute, but it goes farther than you may think. In fact, it’s not even just DNA and RNA. It’s how the DNA and RNA strands are interpreted.
Only the willfully ignorant would say something like that. Not to worry though, I am sure there are other evotards who think the same thing.
As I posted in that thread (it has been deleted):
"You don't have the same genetic code," replied Venter. "In fact, the Mycoplasmas [a group of bacteria Venter and his team have used to engineer synthetic chromosomes] use a different genetic code that would not work in your cells. So there are a lot of variations on the theme..."
Codon UGA codes for "STOP" in us but in Mycoplasma it codes for the amino acid tryptophan. And that is just a start.
But the main problem with a universal genetic code and universal common descent is the theory of evolution is SILENT of origins. Yet both UCD and a UCG need an origins of a single organism/ single population of like organisms. Otherwise you don't get either.
IOW evotards are so freaking stupid they don't even realize that.
