|Rob, you can now do some science: |
Show how the marsupial 'bears' are more closely genetically related to the world's true placental 'bears' than to other marsupials.
Should be easy.
"Well, they look the same" was science in 4000 BC.
These days, not so much.
Genetics is a new field full of presumptions.
I see genetics as just following other physical triggers in the body and not as a trail of origins.
If a creature changes instantly to a new reproductive style the dna must follow as its hand in glove.
The clear sameness of creatures is the evidence of relationship and genetics must bow to it.
Its only a special case where i am related to my father. This just because of no important changes occured. Yet if they do then so with the dna.
No reason not to see that it works that way especially when clearly a bear is a bear regardless of having a pouch or not.
a bear is a bear, of course, of course, unless it's not!
this is absolutely priceless.
