As the article clearly states, this new evidence contradicts “the widely held belief that organisms become more complex through evolution.” This widely held belief is of course held/predicted by the Church of Darwin. Whereas ID/CS predicts frontloading. Thus, the complexity of the “ancient” Sea Anemone genome fits in with ID/CS expectations, and flies in the face of Darwinist expectations. But I’m sure the Church of Darwin will simply amend their “theory” in order to fit the facts, just like the geocentrists were forced to invent epicycles to give life support to the dying embers of geocentrism.

“the widely held belief that organisms become more complex through evolution.”

That is a false statement, but it is a widely held belief.

Every critter on Earth will exploit it's environment to it's best abilities. Over time, if something works, then that ability will be passed down through it's generations. If it was a failure, then the parents will die and nothing will survive.

Sometimes, getting rid of "excess baggage" will help a critter to survive. This article presented a good example of how this was done, and why.

I have always been rather neutral about this issue. However, just like "Global Warming", I demand that everyone be honest with the facts that they present.

Once again, did this article demonstrate how intelligence can alter DNA?

I don’t understand why you can’t be a creationist who believes that the means God uses to create was evolution. Only the idea of random selection is inconsistent with creationism.

And what would you have them do. Ignore the facts when they contradict the theory? This is the scientific process at work. Theories are constantly tested and when evidence supports a new theory then that is accepted.

How do you test intelligent design anyway?
