I assume you mean "restriction enzyme." :)

What do you think would happen if you run uncut DNA on a gel?

Re: Oh God, a debate!

I gather this is not a science class. Are you asked to argue that nobody should do the experiments because evolution experiments cannot emulate the natural world? This is not something you can argue for based on scientific information or papers - it can be easily shown to be false by experiment. And...

What does "denoted" mean, and how does an organ that can be "denoted" differ from one that cannot?

Evolution doesn’t really seem to falsify creation, it falsifies the meaning you put into the word creation (the way you believe it should’ve happened if it were true). I don't think this makes sense. The only thing that you can falsify is a hypothesis . I’ll allow you to refute your own statement. ...

Re: Theories - Origin of Life

I’ll make a few comments, since this was a separate conversation. (I’m not replying to everything, though, and I probably won’t make another “large-scale” response here after this one. Unless I get tempted anyways. ) Yes, there is absolutely zero chance for something to happen if the necessary preco...

If the lock was not washed/frequently brushed/otherwise cleaned, I think it is possible that some skin cells may have adhered to the hair and might remain - it seems like this hasn't been mentioned in the thread before. I also think that it probably would have to not have been handled very much, sin...

I hypothesize that learning about viruses/spyware/adware and how to get rid of and avoid getting them will fix quite a few of your computer problems. In response to your third post: science does not relate to personal goals. You do not look for scientific information to "support" something...

Re: What are the potential benefits of epigenetics research?

When you consider that genetic knowledge stems mainly from only about 2% (just some 20,000 or so coding genes) of the genome, a reasonable question to ask is, what’s the other 98% doing. This is in the area of epigenetics. Actually, this is the study of noncoding DNA, which can overlap with epigene...

Also, observing rigorous data contradicting evolution would not be disturbing to scientists in the same way - it would be interesting . So scientists are now relying on symantics are they? ...How then did the program arise? I don’t understand what you mean. I was pointing out that scientists are ge...

The question of “correct” mutations being random makes no sense when we are dealing with for example proof reading. This type of process requires some template to compare with in order to be “correct”. No, I am not implying that there is some specification of “correctness” in evolution. I used the ...

Has this situation changed since Darwin's day? Can someone help with some evidence. Most definitely. I suggest you read m, and also any included citations if you want to investigate further. Please note in the opening paragraph, "Observed examples of each kind of speciation are provided throug...

Another thing to please keep in mind, these examples of random mutations provide evidence of what is termed micro evolution and in a negative way at that, the deterioration of the organism. Nobody as far as I am aware denies that these changes take place. The point is do these changes lead to new s...
