Massive Genetic Study Reveals 90 Percent Of Earth’s Animals Appeared At The Same Time
Tech Times ^ | 30 May 2018, | Nicole Arce

Landmark new research that involves analyzing millions of DNA barcodes has debunked much about what we know today about the evolution of species.

In a massive genetic study, senior research associate at the Program for the Human Environment at Rockefeller University Mark Stoeckle and University of Basel geneticist David Thaler discovered that virtually 90 percent of all animals on Earth appeared at right around the same time.

More specifically, they found out that 9 out of 10 animal species on the planet came to being at the same time as humans did some 100,000 to 200,000 years ago.

"This conclusion is very surprising," says Thaler, "and I fought against it as hard as I could."

Gen 1:24 And God said: Let the earth bring forth the living creature in its kind, cattle and creeping things, and beasts of the earth, according to their kinds. And it was so done.

"The latest research is debunking current knowledge about evolution. After studying 5 million genetic barcodes, scientists found 90 percent of species on Earth may have emerged around the same time as humans."

Gen 1:26 And he said: Let us make man to our image and likeness: and let him have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and the beasts, and the whole earth, and every creeping creature that moveth upon the earth.

When you think about it, this makes perfect sense. Our planet is such a finely tuned ecosystem that it wouldn’t function without all of its component parts. It wouldn’t make sense, for example, for a spider to exist and spend its time spinning a web ... unless there were insects to catch in that web.

But there is little odd part to this story. Only 90-percent of animals fell into this category. The other 10-percent did NOT come from that era. So the question ought to be which animals fell into the ‘modern’ era and which extend beyond that era.

I would suggest that this whole DNA discussion is not finished, and there’s going to be a number of issues laid out which won’t fit well with any narrative.

There was no “evolution”. It flat out is a hoax.

Maybe the other 10% are the results of crossbreeding

The fact that the writer avoided laying out the ten-percent is obvious. It would have been nice to know. There are presently around 8-million animal species on the Earth.

Interesting. They don’t know how this happened but their conclusion is that all the other animals must have died out at the same time.

That would be my guess too. It might possibly have been a factor in the Flood.

Amazing turn in human history. Goodbye Nietzsche, good riddance Darwin, welcome back God.

There are presently around 8-million animal species on the Earth.

They only collected samples from 100,000 species. So the conclusions are based, apparently, on the assumptions that the other 7,900,000 species will follow the same pattern; their methodology reminds me of political polls before an election.

Next thing we’ll hear from them is they discover the earth was created in 6 days. ;D

The article actually sates that 90% of the 100,000 species sampled "Stoeckle and Thaler arrived at the conclusion that most animals appeared simultaneously"; not at around the same time as the extract states.

Link to the actual scientific study as it appeared in Human Evolution magazine: Why should mitochondria define species?
