The following was copied with some shortening from the Answers in Genesis item linked above.
“Our study shows that antibiotic resistance is hard-wired into bacteria,” Wright says.
“Most practitioners believe that bacteria acquire antibiotic resistance in the clinic,” Wright says. “As doctors prescribe antibiotics, they select for members of the community that are resistant to these drugs. Over time, these organisms spread and eventually the bacteria that commonly cause these infections are all resistant. In extreme cases these organisms are resistant to seven or more drugs and are untreatable using traditional treatment. . . . The actual source of much of this resistance is harmless bacteria that live in the environment.”
Many microorganisms horizontally transfer genetic information among themselves. Thus, harmless bacteria, such as those deep in
Nevertheless, antibiotic resistance has become one of the most popular “proofs” of evolution as evolutionary promoters fail to distinguish between the selection of pre-existing information and the production of new genetic material. "
The “growing understanding that antibiotic resistance is natural” is a confirmation of the role of natural selection acting on microbes that horizontally transfer information. None of this research supports any sort of molecules-to-man evolutionary concepts or even the “deep time” implied in the phrase “long evolutionary past.”
Once again, the evidence cited so confidently as support of molecules to man evolution is shown to be trivial and overblown at best, often on proper scrutiny to be if anything evidence against 'the theory'. This hard new evidence confirms that naturally occuring antibiotic resistance long pre-dated the first human use of antibiotics. More supposed evidence for evolution blown out of the water. Not that this evidence will change the Darwinists' minds, for molecules to man evolution is an act of faith for them.
I expect the impartial BBC will report this important science story which removes yet another prop from the rickety structure of the so-called evidence for Evolution, and it will be incorporated into school teaching on Evolution. Or not as the case may be.
