Museum combines DNA, fossils to show human ancestry

quote:
Almost half of Americans believe that humans were created by God in the last 10,000 years, according to a 2006 Gallup Poll, and critics of evolution have focused in part on the relatively thin fossil record.

In the exhibit next to the Neanderthal DNA, for example, a display of a series of primates shows the percentage of genetic material they share with humans, which ranges up to 99 percent for chimpanzees.

"That's what this hall is all about. It's about understanding we have common ancestry with other organisms," said DeSalle.

Reminds me of the Atheist Delusion:

"God updates a gene so that more good christians can go to heaven and that means we came from monkeys!"

BTW has anyone seen the atheist delusion 2?

Facts! Pssh, you can prove anything even remotely true with facts.

Lisa: Yes, but wouldn't you rather know the truth than to delude yourself for happiness?
Marge: Well... um.... [goes outside to jump on tampoline with Homer.]

Creationist don't acknowledge the DNA evidence for evolution any more than the physical evidence.

I think the benefit of the museum is in supporting the theory of evolution especially for those who don't understand why there isn't any credible argument against in the scientific community. Creation believers are unlikely to be convinced by any evidence.
