Evolutionists Are Now Saying Our Brain Evolved from a Brainless Worm

Humans, and all vertebrates for that matter, have fantastically complex brains. The brain develops in the embryo according to three signaling centers which create a framework. But the genes behind this early development phase are missing in vertebrates’ closest evolutionary relatives. Now evolutionists have found similar such genes in an even more distant species, the acorn worm. But such worms don’t even have a brain to begin with. So evolutionists are saying that random mutations just luckily laid the groundwork for far more complex designs in the lowly worm:

We propose that these genetic programs were components of an unexpectedly complex, ancient genetic regulatory scaffold for deuterostome body patterning that degenerated in amphioxus and ascidians, but was retained to pattern divergent structures in hemichordates and vertebrates.

That molecular machinery then for some reason “degenerated” but nonetheless, strangely “was retained” and came alive in vertebrates to help create the fantastic new brain design.

Nothing makes sense in biology in the light of evolution.
