the undisputed fact that these ten primates do not have a common ancestor.
The 21st Century understanding of evolution does not require mention of
this old 20th Century concept. Molecular biology is updating some of the
old Darwinian concepts that were never tested and the test results were
never reproduced by others. This video is open to scrutiny by everyone and
everyone can reproduce these test results for themselves.
Geological Society of America:
Science, by definition,
is a method of learning about the natural universe by asking questions in
such a way that they can be answered empirically and verifiably. If a
question cannot be framed so that the answer can be tested, and the test
results can be reproduced by others, then it is not science.

triumphiert nie, ihre Gegner sterben nur aus. Truth never triumphs � its
opponents just die out. Science advances one funeral at a time.
Charles P: When I was in high school, The Theory of Evolution seemed very
reasonable. When I was at the university, all of my courses in chemistry,
physics, biology, anthropology, biochemistry, physical chemistry, etc. were
all coordinated by academia to bring to all students the very reasonable
concepts of The Theory of Evolution. Many very sincere scientists still
cling to the old 20th Century arguments in favor of The Theory of Evolution.
Charles P: Molecular biology and the sequencing of genomes have brought us
to the James A Shapiro concept of "natural genetic engineering".
"Evolution: A View From The 21st Century" explains why The Theory of
Evolution will be updated to modernize our thinking about the origin and
diversity of life. Of course, there will always be some very sincere
opponents to these updates. That is OK. I will try to answer any
questions by providing Internet links whenever possible.
Jerry A Coyne, the author of "Why Evolution Is True", is a colleague of
James A Shapiro. Coyne tried to argue away the updates proposed by
Shapiro. After August 30th, he gave up because he was unable to find
scientific evidence to support his old Darwinian views. That's OK. As Max
Planck put it: Science advances one funeral at a time.

A Shapiro clearly explains the "Nine Basic Principles Of Natural Genetic
Engineering" in his book with 1,162 references to support the molecular
biology conclusions that have been leading scientists to update the old
Darwinian views. For example, there is absolutely no reason to talk about
"common ancestry" in order to understand evolution.
Charles P: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/OriginsTalk/message/29379
Central Dogma is being replaced by "natural genetic engineering". The
Central Dogma was first stated by Francis Crick in 1958 and re-stated in a
Nature paper published in 1970.
Charles P: All of the 1,162 references are open to scrutiny by everyone.
I hope that everyone here on Origins Talk will invest the necessary time
to understand what Shapiro is reporting about the origin and diversity of
life. Please investigate this information for yourself. Whatever
conclusions you reach are OK with me. There is nothing for me to "debate"
with anyone here on Origins Talk. However, if you have not read what
Shapiro has published, I will try to answer any questions you might have
and try to direct your attention to more Internet links that support his
21st Century updates.
