New research is confirming the evolutionary conundrum of early complexity. The research shows that a microbial eukaryote, Naegleria gruberi, shares a large number of genes in common with other eukaryotes. And why is this a problem? Evolutionists have resorted to many incredible just-so stories of convergence. From intricate spider web designs to entire vision systems, evolutionists have been forced to say such designs, because they are found repeated in distant species, have evolved more than once. And while the supposed independent evolution of these striking designs is silly, even these evolutionists have not yet said that similar genes evolve independently. Until and unless they resort to such a fantasy they must say that similar genes in different species have arisen from a common ancestor. And that leads to another problem.
According to evolution, similar genes in different species have a common ancestral gene. But a great many similar genes are found in a great many different species. Consequently evolutionists are forced to conclude the common ancestor was a super ancestor. For decades now evolutionists have been jacking up the capabilities of early life. All the high-tech innovations of biology were, apparently, produced in those warm little ponds of early life.
The new research tells us that with evolution we must believe that the last common ancestor of the eukaryotes must have had at least 4133 genes. This is up from the earlier estimate of 3417, and it is a lower bound. For several reasons the number must even be significantly greater than 4133 genes if evolution is true. This continues the theme of, as one evolutionist put it, "The Incredible Expanding Ancestor of Eukaryotes."
These gene numbers alone force evolutionists to conclude that the last common ancestor of eukaryotes was already a complex organism. This is also the conclusion when the biology is compared. That early eukaryote must have had not only the vast majority of the complex DNA replication, RNA splicing and interference, and protein translation machinery, it was also capable of advanced movement and was equipped with versatile energy conversion systems.
This is truly an astonishing story evolutionists are telling us. Incredible biological capabilities, crucial to advanced life, just happened to arise rapidly in those heady days of early evolution. It was, as evolutionists now say, a giant step to an amoeba, yet a small step to man. Right. I can hear the ball bearings already.
