here and here) that the mitochondria DNA of the single-cell eukaryote Trypanosoma brucei is incredibly complex and unique, and make no sense on evolution, and more over that these incredible mitochondria designs reappear in distant species on the evolutionary tree. For instance, the Euglenids and the Dinoflagellates share these bizarre mitochondria similarities. Evolutionists are calling it “Corresponding evolutionary histories” or “Cascades of convergent evolution,” and it is far beyond the explanatory power of the usual just-so stories, such as gene transfer, gene duplication or gene loss. It is just another example of how evolutionary theory fails but the story doesn’t end with the mitochondria.
The Euglenids and Dinoflagellates, for example, also share very odd peculiarities at the molecular level in general. You can hear about them beginning at the [14:05] mark here.
For starters both these eukaryotic groups have permanently condensed chromosomes in their nucleus, polycistronic transcription, trans-splicing and intron poverty. These characteristics are highly unusual in eukaryotes.
Canonical gene expression in eukaryotes involves the transcription of a gene, and the splicing out of the introns so that only the exons remain, before translation takes place to construct the protein.
But in the Euglenids and Dinoflagellates, for example, a string of consecutive genes—sometimes hundreds of genes—are transcribed together in what is known as polycistronic transcription. And when these transcripts are cut up to produce monocistronic transcripts, short genomic sequences known as spliced leaders, which come from RNA genes, are added at the beginning in a process that is called trans-splicing. This was first observed years ago in the kinetoplastids. Also, there are very few introns in these distant eukaryotic groups.
Evolution expects that when organisms are classified according to how they evolved, then the classification serves to predict and explain other aspects of the organisms which were not used in the classification. Simply put, if certain traits point to a certain evolutionary history, then other traits should as well.
These similarities between the Euglenids and Dinoflagellates, of very odd and peculiar traits, disproves evolution yet again. It’s just another example of how the evidence explains evolution rather than evolution explaining the evidence. Evolution is a tautology. It is contorted to fit whatever we find in nature, no matter how absurd the theory must become.
Nothing makes sense in biology in the light of evolution.
