Do Genetics Support Evolution?

Post by bpv » Fri Jun 09, 2006 7:38 pm

As we know the DNA contains information for all the characteristics of an organism. Now with the advancement of genetic engineering we have technology to remove or modify the genes using vectors. I would like to know; how far it is possible for the genetic information to get recoded with meaningful information, for the formation of a completely different species or organism to support evolution. I wish you may answer with your own reason, understanding the intricacy of the genetic structure and information and with reference to the scientific principles that we have learned not only in biology but in other sciences too.

Everything can be modified, as we know it
If you see the science 411, You will know
that life can be manipulated, mulitple times.
Recoding, reprogramming, COPY CAT, any data
anything that has genetics cellular molecules, can
be divided and sub-subdiveded.

Can the above take place with out the direction of an intelligence behind it? I mean by the natural forces or so.

yes Integrons, transposons, plasmids, viruses, natural transformation are way to recombine and transfer DNA from one organism to another. Genetic engeneering is often using natural tools to do its job.

But do you think these changes take place without the usage of tools i.e. by its own; to result in the coding of meaningful intelligent information for substantial changes to occur in the organism and to result in the formation of a new species of organism.
