|SuperSport the cubicle dwelling troll Said|
|Weíve recently learned from J.C. Sanford that the genome is degenerating. We see proof of that all around us with all the new crop of genetic diseases.|
I responded with †
|Why don't the "fast breeders" suffer genetic diseases? Bacteria etc? Millions of generations gone past, and yet here they all still are ready to infect your food at the slightest chance. |
SuperSport the dilbert knock off said
|Probably diet.....bacteria don't eat an assortment of chemicals, fats, salts, additives, hydrogenated oils, sodas, chips, fries, burgers, onion rings, Cheetos, fruit juice and corn dogs.....we do. Add on top of that exposure to pollution, industrial toxins, city water that's been loaded with fluoride and chlorine, pesticides, and all kinds of other contaminates. †It's causing a wholesale degeneration in the genome.|
And I posted
|Bacteria found in radioactive waste Hanford. U.S. Scientists studying the soil beneath a leaking Hanford nuclear waste storage tank have discovered more than 100 species of bacteria living in a toxic, radioactive environment that most considered inhospitable to all forms of life.|
Yet SuperSport has not commented. I've just destroyed a big part of your pathetic belief "system" (not really, as we know you are a Troll, but let's carry on pretending).
Typical dishonest YEC behavior.
Super, the issue at hand was not to "prove" natural selection as you well know.
I asked why bacteria are still around if genomic deterioration puts an upper limit on the number reproductve events, as you said.
YOU said it was because bacteria are not exposed to the toxins humans are.
I note that they are, and that they thrive on it.
depends on what the toxin is...pour gas or chlorine on them or some other toxic substance and see what happens. Bacteria were designed to consume toxins....using this as an example of non-degeneration is silly.
