Wells, “Origin of Human Chromosome 2: An Ancestral Telomere-telomere Fusion,” Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America 88 (1991): 9051–9055. So chimps are more human than women are!! Even these high similarity areas actually have only about 86% of matching sequences overall when the algorithm used to analyze them is set to produce a very long sequence match.[xxxi]. Then God commanded man to “rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the animals,” including chimps (Genesis 1:26). One highly reputable study showed that the leading cause of death in the 20th century was “Democide”—or “murder by government,” which has claimed well over 260 million lives. [xx] Talk about circular reasoning. Yet any high school student can debunk the “Human and Chimp DNA is 98% similar” mantra that this chapter covers. Could someone please give me the source for this facts? [xxi] As a rough draft, even after the computational assembly based on the human genome, it still consisted of thousands of small chunks of DNA sequences. In other words, they show no capacity for knowing their creator through worship or prayer. From the beginning, they were spirit-less animals created on Day 6 of creation. First, all varieties of chimps have no concept of eternity. See Kirill Rossiianov, “Beyond Species: Ii’ya Ivanov and His Experiments on Cross-Breeding Humans with Anthropoid Apes.” Science in Context. They again assembled all these genomes using the human genome as a framework! [xlix] Perhaps our early ancestors had a working GULO gene that could manufacture vitamin C. Today, low vitamin C in our diets causes an illness called scurvy. In 1991, scientists found a short segment of DNA on human chromosome 2 that they claimed was evidence for fusion. Be it the difference from Chimpies and humans' DNA 1% or 10% or whatever. The DNA of an entire organism is too long to sequence all at once, thus they sequence millions of pieces, each hundreds of bases long. Humans and chimpanzees have differences in bone structures, in brain types, and in other major parts of their physiology. The tendency has been to ignore them and only compare the similar genes. Did we evolve from guinea pigs? Third, the “fusion site” sequence shares only 70% similarity to what expectations would dictate. Chaos would reign. Is the story of retroviral code and chromosome 2 true? [xx] “Human-Chimp Genetic Similarity: Is the Evolutionary Dogma Valid?” Institute for Creation Research: www.icr.org/article/6197/. They also share more than 50 percent of their DNA with insects, such as fruit flies, and fruit, such as bananas. Share on Facebook. Share on LinkedIn. The magic act isn’t working any longer, and more and more open-minded scientists are beginning to realize it. Because this is a phrase that we often hear that humans, we share 99% or 99.9% of our genes with each other. Since we share common ancestry with chimpanzees, it is understandable we have certain similarities. T represents the chemical Tyrosine; A, Adenine; and G, Guanine. Some of the biggest differences between humans and chimps lie in the DNA that resides outside of genes. These chemicals called bases (they're like the letters of the alphabet of our DNA). A carpenter makes both chairs and tables with four legs. Trask, “Genomic Structure and Evolution of the Ancestral Chromosome Fusion Site in 2q13-2q14.1 and Paralogous Regions on other Human Chromosomes,” Genome Research 12 (2002): 1651–1662; Y. Losing those could spell disaster for the organism. This image was not lost but marred at the Fall,11 so God made humans with a special purpose now and in eternity. Scientists have long known that chimps and humans share about 98 percent of their DNA. Other published research studies completed between 2002 and 2006 compared certain isolated regions of the chimp genome to human DNA. Thus, the reference genome in humans is the sum total of one complete set of 23 chromosomes. Ignore the negative sign (take the absolute value). Figures 2 and 3: Evolutionists believe that the similarity in the DNA sequence of gorillas, chimpanzees, and humans is proof that they all share a common ancestor (Photos: Shutterstock) Ever since the time of Darwin, evolutionary scientists have noted the anatomical (physical/visible) similarities between humans and the great apes, including chimpanzees, gorillas, and orangutans. The DNA codes for a dizzying array of RNA molecules. DNA is a fragile molecule. Assumptions have to be made about the importance of various parts of the DNA and the significance of different types of differences. This cherry-picking deceptively reinforced the mythical 98% similarity notion. [xii] Look at someone next to you and roll your eyes at them. Human telomeres are from 5,000 to 15,000 bases long. Even if chimps and humans were as close as Evolutionists claim, the big difference would be that chimps have a body and a soul, (personality comprising mind, emotions and will) snd the human also has a spirit, which is the capacity to worship. Science is considered one of the top two science journals in the world (the other is Nature from the UK). No known creature avoids this process of genetic decay, called genetic entropy (see above section on genetics). For example, an automotive engineer could make a Volkswagen bug and a Porsche Carrera framework out of steel, glass, and plastic but not oxygen, carbon dioxide, and sulfuric acid. Asked by Wiki User. This significantly changed the results, which showed that the actual DNA similarities for the analyzed regions varied between about 66% to 86%. [xlviii] Instead, it looks like this gene is predisposed to being mutated no matter what creature has it. [xviii] DNA regions that have hundreds of repeating sequences are, for this reason, very difficult to reconstruct, yet we now know that they are important for cell function. Stage magicians, otherwise known as illusionists, practice their trade by getting you to focus on some aspect of the magician’s act to divert your focus from what the other hand is doing. The results showed that, depending on the chromosome, the chimp chromosomes were between 43% and 78% similar to humans. However, these similarities do not mean they evolved from a common ancestor any more than all buildings constructed using brick, iron, cement, glass, etc. If chimp DNA is so dissimilar to human, and the computer software stops matching after only a few hundred bases, how can we find the actual similarity of the human and chimp genomes? These unmatched sections consequently are not included in the final results, raising significantly the overall similarity between human and chimp DNA. Figure 2. They want to avoid the task of explaining how 15 or 20% of three billion bases evolved in such a short time! In their analysis, scientists from 35 institutions compared this melded assembly to the reference sequence of the human genome, a newer unpublished draft sequence of the chimp genome, the sequence of more than a dozen other more distant species already in the public databases, the human HapMap, and the Human Gene Mutation Database that lists known human mutations that lead to … [xviii] J. Tomkins, “How Genomes are Sequenced and why it Matters: Implications for Studies in Comparative Genomics of Humans and Chimpanzees,” Answers Research Journal 4 (2011): 81–88. Each chromosome set contains over 3 billion base pairs. See Carter, R.. CMI may choose not to publish your comment depending on how well it fits the guidelines outlined above. Humans also have the ability to express their thoughts abstractly in speech, writing, and music, as well as develop other complicated systems of expression and communication. 2012-04-24 08:26:16. The DNA of a cow and a whale should be more alike than the DNA of a cow and a bacterium. Keep up the good work of setting the record straight. Another case of textbook evidence for human evolution is the GULO pseudogene. This supposedly explains why both of them have the same supposedly broken genes, called pseudogenes. The 'plan' for the organism in written on its DNA. Ask an evolutionist to try to sit on a table and put his lunch on a chair and enjoy it! [xxviii] R. Buggs, “How similar are human and chimpanzee genomes?” Posted on Richardbuggs.com July 14, 2018, accessed August 9, 2018. 1-844-7-GENESIS (844-743-6374) email@example.com. The information is encoded in the sequencing of four chemical bases: adenine (A), guanine (G), cytosine (C), and thymine (T). The DNA sequence that can be directly compared between the two genomes is almost 99 percent identical. The organization of these chemicals encodes information, just like letters of the alphabet. It performs many important jobs in the cell. Though we see many differences that make us unique, from an objective standpoint, we have a ton in common with each other compared to other species. In 2005, a collaboration of different labs completed the first rough draft of the chimpanzee genome. The large difference does not tally with evolutionary expectations but it is consistent with us being created separately from the animals. If not, then offer the fact that the chimp genome has 3.3 billion, and the human genome 3.1 billion bases. Our 46 chromosomes have a total of 6 billion DNA bases. We also both play, have complex emotions and intelligence, and a very similar physical makeup. These describe supposedly damaged remnants of formerly useful protein-coding genes. Point 4 – The Beta-globin Pseudogene is not a pseudogene! Rhesus macaques (Macaca mulatta) are sandy-furred, pink-faced monkeys that live in the region ranging from Afghanistan to northern India, as well as southern China, and are traditionally held as sacred in Hinduism. [xliii] J. Bergman & J. Tomkins, “The Chromosome 2 Fusion Model of Human Evolution—Part 1: Re-evaluating the Evidence,” Journal of Creation 25 (2011): 110–114. Although that makes the red … Last, the claimed fusion site contains a gene, proof that it is not a genetic scar at all. Secondly, apes use very limited verbal communication—they cannot write articles or even sentences. [xxxvii] NIH/National Human Genome Research Institute. Share on Reddit. Fibonacci Number Sequence. Why does Science perpetuate the myth in 2012? At other times, they talk about certain DNA sequences being 98 to 99% similar. Telomeres contain repeats of the DNA sequence TTAGGG over and over. The figures given in the article are correct. As humans and chimps gradually evolved from a common ancestor, their DNA, passed from generation to generation, changed too. By submitting your comment you are agreeing to receive email updates from. [xxiii], Unfortunately, the research paper describing the 2005 chimp draft genome avoided the problem of overall average genome similarity with humans by analyzing the regions of the genomes that were already known to be highly similar. Telomeres in Chimps and other apes are about 23 kilobases (a kilobase is 1,000 base pairs of DNA) long. [xxiii] J. Prado-Martinez, et al. While many short stretches of DNA existed that were very similar to human DNA, more than 30% of the chimp DNA sequence was not even close enough to attempt an alignment. The way it's presented at school, Uni, medical & other textbooks & the media is it any wonder? Thanks to your wonderful Ministry I have had my eyes opened as have many others I am sure. Researchers discovered that many of the short stretches of DNA genetic sequences that code for common proteins were not only highly similar in many types of animals, but that they were nearly identical between certain creatures including humans and apes.[xvii]. Point 1 – Overall, the entire genome is only about 84.4% similar on average when you include all the DNA. The beta-globin sequence fits right in the middle of a cluster of five other genes. New York. Genomic monkey business—estimates of nearly identical human–chimp DNA similarity re-evaluated using omitted data. Once the apes are not native to Africa however, the differences in DNA increase. If these actually fused, then they should have over ten thousand TTAGGG bases, but the alleged fusion site actually has about 800 bases. 324:522-528. Of the great apes, humans share 98.8 percent of their DNA with bonobos and chimpanzees. The Genome Sequence of Taurine Cattle: A Window to Ruminant Biology and Evolution. I love that last line, Don ... "All creatures were created with intelligence suited to their needs. Spoiler alert: it’s junk science and they just exposed it! These are commonly called “jumping genes,” and they can cut themselves out of one location in the genome and splice themselves into another location. They share the same water, oxygen, and food sources. We know that genes determine body features from gender to hair color. Telomeres in Chimps and other apes are about 23 kilobases (a kilobase is 1,000 base pairs of DNA) long. Frith, P. Horton & K. Asai, “Finding Protein-coding Genes through Human Polymorphisms,” PloS one 8 (2013). Humans share over 90% of their DNA with their primate cousins. Genesis 1:1. And humans, unlike other creatures, were made in the image of God (Genesis 1:26, 27), a special creation. The researchers also found that bonobos share about 98.7% of their DNA with humans—about the same amount that chimps share with us. Possibly the entire genome is a storehouse of important information. This family includes orangutans, chimpanzees, gorillas, and bonobos. Print. means that they share origins. Measured by differences in DNA, the chimp, Pan troglodytes, is the closest living relative to our own species, Homo sapiens. [xv] Answers in Genesis: “What about the Similarity Between Human and Chimp DNA?” www.answersingenesis.org/articles/nab3/human-and-chimp-dna (January 14, 2014). Thanks for your encouragement; we appreciate it! Plans/specifications only come from intelligent design. When you both see that it equals about a 6% difference, then just ask, “How can the two be only 1% different if their total lengths are already 6% different?”. Point 5 – The GULO Pseudogene does not show common decent, but simply shows an area of both genomes that is prone to mutate. Humans have 46 and apes have 48. Then the human genome was removed, leaving a pseudo-chimp genome that assumed common ancestry (evolution), creating a mongrel sequence that is not real. Like the claims of 99% similarity, chromosome fusion, and Beta-globin, evolutionists built the GULO argument based on belief in evolution plus an ignorance of biology. This turned out to be only one of many problems. “DIANA-LncBase: Experimentally Verified and Computationally Predicted MicroRNA Targets on Long Non-coding RNAs,” Nucleic Acids Research 41 (2013): 239–245. With cats, of course the common ancestor is going to look somewhat like the cats, have similar functions to the cats, so I’m not sure how the argument really applies to bats and dolphins based upon the actual standards of what a common ancestor can or cannot be. It needs to be refuted if it’s not true. How long will it take this correction to reach museums and textbooks that need bad science to prop up human evolution? Genetic information in all living creatures is encoded as a sequence of principally 4 nucleotides (guanine, adenine, thymine, and cytosine, shown by the letters G, A, T, and C). Therefore, GULO shows no pattern of common ancestry for humans and apes—negating this evolutionary argument. Why does this matter? Or the similarities are found in certain specific regions? They assumed that many human-like sequences were missing from the chimp DNA, so they added them electronically. Every cell in the body of every living organism contains deoxyribonucleic acid, or DNA. When it comes to insects' DNA, humans have a bit less in common. I told him that my 1982 Honda was 95% the same as an armored tank. A comparison of the entire genome, however, indicates that segments of DNA have also been deleted, duplicated over and over, or inserted from one part of the genome into another. They simply perform the same task in the two different organisms. [xxxii] E. Wijaya, M.C. The chimp genome is much longer than the human genome. et al., 2007. Humans can build space shuttles and write songs. Humans share DNA with every other living organism on earth. When researchers first made this estimate in the early 1990’s, nobody knew what the other 95% of the genome did. Humans and chimpanzees shared a common ancestor ∼5-7 million years ago (Mya). Despite the similarities in human and chimp genomes, the scientists identified some 40 million differences among the three billion DNA molecules, or nucleotides, in each genome. However, the larger the difference between apes and humans, the bigger the problem in trying to explain it within the evolutionary timeframe, so evolutionists have good reason to try to play down the differences. Of the great apes, humans share 98.8 percent of their DNA with bonobos and chimpanzees. (If you haven’t received your first email within a few minutes, try checking your spam folder.). But men and women have 46 chromosomes, and of those 46 we only share 45. However, broken GULO pseudogenes are also found in mice, rats, bats, birds, pigs, and famously, guinea pigs. Although the human and chimpanzee genomes overall are only about 84.4% similar, some regions have high similarity, mostly due to protein-coding genes. 98%? We still commonly see statements that human and chimp DNA are ‘almost identical’, with only 1% difference claimed. The series lays a vital foundation for understanding both the world around us, and the Gospel itself.
