Massive Genetic Study Reveals 90 Percent Of Earth’s Animals Appeared At The Same Time
30 May 2018, 7:01 am EDT By Nicole Arce Tech Times

Landmark new research that involves analyzing millions of DNA barcodes has debunked much about what we know today about the evolution of species.

In a massive genetic study, senior research associate at the Program for the Human Environment at Rockefeller University Mark Stoeckle and University of Basel geneticist David Thaler discovered that virtually 90 percent of all animals on Earth appeared at right around the same time.

More specifically, they found out that 9 out of 10 animal species on the planet came to being at the same time as humans did some 100,000 to 200,000 years ago.

"This conclusion is very surprising," says Thaler, "and I fought against it as hard as I could."


What Is DNA Barcoding?

Over the last decade, hundreds of scientists collected around 5 million DNA barcodes from 100,000 animal species in different parts of the globe. Stoeckle and Thaler looked through these 5 million genetic imprints to find one of the most surprising discoveries about evolution to date.

There are two types of DNA. Most people know nuclear DNA. This is the DNA containing the genetic blueprint for each single individual. It is passed down from the parents to the offspring. The genome is made from kinds types of molecules arranged in pairs. There are 3 billion of these pairs, which are then used to form thousands of genes.

The other, less familiar type of DNA is one found in the mitochondria of cells. The mitochondria generate energy for the cell and contains 37 genes. One of these is the COI gene, which is used to create DNA barcodes. All species have a very similar mitochondrial DNA, but their DNA is also different enough so we can distinguish between species.

Paul Hebert, biologist and director of the Biodiversity Institute of Ontario, developed a new way to identify species by studying the COI gene.


Born Around The Same Time

In analyzing the COI of 100,000 species, Stoeckle and Thaler arrived at the conclusion that most animals appeared simultaneously. They found that the neutral mutation across species were not as varied as expected. Neutral mutation refers to the slight DNA changes that occur across generations. They can be compared to tree rings because they can tell how old a certain specie or individual is.

As to how that could have happened, it's unclear. A likely possibility is the occurrence of a sudden event that caused large-scale environmental trauma and wiped out majority of the Earth's species.

"Viruses, ice ages, successful new competitors, loss of prey — all these may cause periods when the population of an animal drops sharply," explains Jesse Ausubel, director of the Program for the Human Environment.

Such times give rise to sweeping genetic changes across the planet, causing new species to appear. However, the last time such an occurrence took place was 65 million years ago, when an asteroid hit the Earth and killed off the dinosaurs and half of all other species on the planet.

The study is published in the journal Human Evolution.

Because the other possibility, well, we can't have that.

Except it wasn't 200,000 years ago, it was around 7,000!

And the best thing about it is, in a few years, the scientists will start admitting the earth is young, too. I don't know how they'll spin that one.

No, they won't. If there's evidence that the earth is young, at most they'll say the evidence might seem that way, but there's another explanation we just haven't discovered yet. Because at the root of modern science is the premise is that the supernatural doesn't exist. The purely natural but highly-improbable-to-the-point-of-being-impossible explanation will always be favoured over the supernatural one.

This sudden, large-scale environmental trauma...  it leaves one to wonder; is it possible that there was, perchance, a flood?

You mean like the large number of fossils where a whole bunch of animals were all found together, like they had been swept away by a flood? No, we don't know what killed them. What? They were suddenly buried by sediment? Anything could have caused that. There's no evidence for a flood. We don't see worldwide floods today, you know.

Thank you for posting! Maybe it will help my relatives "get it"!

"Science" has become more of a religion, with its own set of norms and zealots. The illogical and unsubstantiated Theory of Evolution as fact, stands in contrast to many of the other science's objective conclusions to the theory. Some have, for instance, indicated how the second law of Thermodynamics, having to do with enmity, is in conflict with the outcome of this relativistic theory's lovely progression towards a perfect outcome through the help of their god, Time.

Genetics is one of the latest to overcome the errors of Masonic controlled and therefore, truly pseudosciences like paleontology, archeology, ancient history and, to a certain extent, even geology, to name a few. If scientific method is true and nonreligious in its conclusions, the conclusions would be verifiable by all scientific method applications. As to the origins of life on earth, it has been largely only a 'popular opinion' among like-minded (read Masonic) 'experts' of the 'sociologically leaning' soft sciences.

May the grand truth of God's hand be finally realized, but I fear, that's gonna take a really long time.
