One of the intriguing questions that has exercised the mind of humanity is HOW species came about. Drawing inspiration from biblical texts, CreationTheory puts forward a model of species revelation referred to as Signalled Evolution. This model also draws inspiration from the work of Sir Richard Owen (contemporary of Darwin). Looking at similarities between vertebrates, Sir Richard hypothesized a common structural plan for all vertebrates. He referred to this plan as the “archetype” (pictured). The archetype was his attempt at reconstructing the skeletal plan that he felt must have existed in the mind of the Divine and been modified to produce the vertebrate species. Research is pointing towards the existence of a genetic
‘transformer’, an archetype that was involved in the expression of new
species on earth.
Watch this space as the mechanics of the transformation process — reliant entirely on I.T. — are discovered. The mechanism is even now beginning to be discerned. The following article, published October 14, 2011, (ScienceDaily) examining the first 48 hours of embryo development, uncovers a mechanism so precise that “even the smallest change would end up leading to the emergence of a new species.”
QUOTE, “……The process is astonishingly simple. In the embryo’s first moments, the Hox genes are dormant, packaged like a spool of wound yarn on the DNA. When the time is right, the strand begins to unwind. When the embryo begins to form the upper levels, the genes encoding the formation of cervical vertebrae come off the spool and become activated. Then it is the thoracic vertebrae’s turn, and so on down to the tailbone. The DNA strand acts a bit like an old-fashioned computer punchcard, delivering specific instructions as it progressively goes through the machine.
“A new gene comes out of the spool every ninety minutes, which corresponds to the time needed for a new layer of the embryo to be built,” explains Duboule. “It takes two days for the strand to completely unwind; this is the same time that’s needed for all the layers of the embryo to be completed.”
This system is the first “mechanical” clock ever discovered in genetics. And it explains why the system is so remarkably precise.
This discovery is the result of many years of work. Under the direction of Duboule and Daniël Noordermeer, the team analyzed thousands of Hox gene spools. With assistance from the Swiss Institute for Bioinformatics, the scientists were able to compile huge quantities of data and model the structure of the spool and how it unwinds over time.
……The Hox clock is a demonstration of the extraordinary complexity of evolution. One notable property of the mechanism is its extreme stability, explains Duboule. “Circadian or menstrual clocks involve complex chemistry. They can thus adapt to changing contexts, but in a general sense are fairly imprecise. The mechanism that we have discovered must be infinitely more stable and precise. Even the smallest change would end up leading to the emergence of a new species.””
Read the final sentence, above. Already there are indicators of the (I.T.) mechanisms called for to make that ‘smallest change’ – see my site.
Evolution implicates machines – information machines – I.T. That’s Owen:
that’s Signalled Evolution. An I.T.mechanism, presumably acting on brand
new embryos. Other complementary I.T. presumably involved environmental
information scanned into the information carriers in the sex cells, plus
tripping of the ‘combination lock’ of species. This led to a new species –
within the womb or egg of the old species — and the old or carrier species
was so similar to the new, if its autoimmune system was re-programmed to be
conformable, it could rear the new! Meanwhile, each new species, being an
outcome of pre-existing information married with pre-existing life, was a
special creation in its own right. That’s Genesis, exactly.
