“Nylon”-Digesting Bacteria are Almost Certainly Not a Modern Strain

Jul. 12, 2018

This marine bacterium has the ability to digest nylon waste products, despite the fact that it doesn’t live in an environment that contains nylon waste products. (click for credit)

Evolutionists are fond of stating “facts” that aren’t anywhere near factual. For example, when I was at university, I was taught, as fact, that bacteria evolved the genes needed to resist antibiotics after modern antibiotics were made. As with most evolutionary “facts,” this turned out to be nothing more than wishful thinking on the part of evolutionists. We now know that the genes needed for antibiotic resistance existed in the Middle Ages and back when mammoths roamed the earth. They have even been found in bacteria that have never been exposed to animals, much less any human-made materials.

Of course, being shown to be dead wrong doesn’t produce any caution among evolutionists when it comes to proclaiming the “evidence” for evolution.

Ingesting Nylons, is this some new millennial fad?

Evolution is a religion. This article would be heresy to the evolutionists.

No, evolution is not a religion and never has been except in the minds of those incapable or too lazy to read and understand. A trip to the field to observe now and then might be enlightening too.

I like that style of drawing and use of color.

1957(?), oh what fun we had before OSHA, was involved with workplace. At least 8 violations.

Utter nonsense. The genes were in the population at a low level and were selected for when the bacteria were exposed to antibiotics. They occurred as random mutations. Until antibiotics there was no advantage to the organisms that had them. That’s how evolution works.

So bacteria having a gene that degrades nylon is not surprising. Put them in an environment rich in nylon and you will see an increase in the number of bacteria with the gene.

Yes, ancient man invented nylon and a lot of other amazing things, but bacteria developed the ability to eat most of them.

Alleopathy. Gene frequency vs. De novo genetic instruction. You cannot say the gene was there before...you were not there and did not test for it...no one did or could. If there was no nylon before its modern synthesis what is the reason and selective pressure for its conservation? Since there are no known nylon deposits in nature I would guess the degradation system probably does something else first....also “evolution” doesnt work that way...you have confused selection of preexistent genes vs de novo addition of completely new genes..biologically and chemically and physically and ecologically the processes are completely different.

Evolutionists have never said animals or bacteria create new genes in response to their environment. That’s Lysenkoism, not science.

Almost all of the pin-up art by Art Frahm features women with their panties somehow falling down. I always thought he went overboard with that concept and did not have a lot of imagination. But now that we know about the nylon-destroying bacteria, maybe he was onto something.
