For your information it is now known that chimps and humans have very
much the same number of protein coding genes.
"Both the chimpanzee and the human genome contain approximately
20,000-25,000 protein-coding genes in 3 billion base pairs of DNA. The
current sequences of the human and chimp genomes are directly
comparable over approximately 96 percent of their lengths, and these
regions are 99 percent identical."
What interests me is how you come to the conclusion that chromosome
fusion disproves evolution.
But seriously, folks:
Are there other known examples of chromosome fusions (i.e. telomeres
found in the middle of a chromosome) in other species?
Are there any theories as to how a chromosome fusion like this took
place? Telomeres don't naturally combine, so how did this happen?
It does seem like a highly unusual type of mutation. And yet it was
that mutation that helped separate genus Homo off from genus Pan. So
does that mean that the evolution of genus Homo was a fluke?
You understood the post.
The fusion of the chromosome is not a beneficial mutation nor would it
be naturally selected as something for species survival. If anything,
the gene's natural Telemers -critical to DNA repair during mitosis --
would repair the defect.
Even a simple search will show that end-to-end fusion of telomeres is
quite possible. Under certain *physiological* conditions (disruption
of telomerases and other telomere sustaining proteins), the telomeres
are recognized as double-strand breaks and undergo end-to-end fusion
through the non-homologous end-joining (NHEJ) repair pathway. Except
in acrocentric fusion, this produces a dicentric chromosome, which is
Unless there is a clear and verifiable natural process that fused the
genes, then the fusion itself is evidence of a supernatural process --

Apparently you did not look very hard. Or you are unable to type in
"chromosome fusion" into google or some other search engine.
Couple this fusion with the fact that we have ancient texts clearly
say man was created and the picture of the puzzle begins to emerge.
Man was created. Not evolved. Man may be part ape, but there is no
real evidence of speciation divergence by natural selection,
mutations, gene frequencies and time.
Today we see many variations of man through the natural processes of
Speciation does not seem to happen. It is not observed. It is not
testable. It can not make predictions that can be verified at a latter
Speciation mechanisms are quite testable and do make specific testable
predictions. Claiming otherwise is simply wishful thinking.
