LUCA and protons and such

Quote


Genes that do the same thing in a human and a mouse are generally related by common descent from an ancestral gene in the first mammal. So by comparing their sequence of DNA letters, genes can be arranged in evolutionary family trees, a property that enabled Dr. Martin and his colleagues to assign the six million genes to a much smaller number of gene families. Of these, only 355 met their criteria for having probably originated in Luca, the joint ancestor of bacteria and archaea.

Genes are adapted to an organism’s environment. So Dr. Martin hoped that by pinpointing the genes likely to have been present in Luca, he would also get a glimpse of where and how Luca lived. “I was flabbergasted at the result, I couldn’t believe it,” he said.


The 355 genes pointed quite precisely to an organism that lived in the conditions found in deep sea vents, the gassy, metal-laden, intensely hot plumes caused by seawater interacting with magma erupting through the ocean floor.

So global warming isn't going to kill off all life after all.

Why all the fuss?

Any version of ID consistent with all the evidence is indistinguishable from evolution.

Not for another billion and something years, anyway, according to a Wiki article on yellow dwarf life cycle. And that gives us some leeway.

Three symbol vocabulary? Smaller vocabulary than that of a parrot I read about a few years ago,  but still quite interesting!
