Denyse suggests that scientists doubt the common descent hypothesis.  In support of this claim she cites two quotes from two different papers by Gordon and Doolittle.

I can't access the one paper from Dr. Gordon she cites, but the other paper by Dr. Doolittle has been discussed here.  In short, according to my reading, the paper does not suggest that common ancestry is false - it proposes that the concept of "ancestry" must be broadened to include activities like HGT which may break the "tree" aspects of the tree of life; this is not, I think, what Denyse is implying the paper says.

But what difference does that make when you want to include YECs in your big tent?
