TCA Lesson 045: Creation in the News: Today’s Species are “Recent?”

Jun 21, 2018 | Creation, Podcast

A recent paper has caused quite a bit of stir in the creation science community, allegedly claiming that new research shows that the majority of today’s species are “recent”—within 200,000 years old. While this sounds like a great win for advocates of recent creation, there may be more to it than meets the eye. We’ll discuss this paper at length in this week’s lesson.

In this lesson, you’ll learn:

  1. What the researchers actually concluded, and how they reached their conclusion.
  2. Why this could be a potential win for creation scientists, but we should approach this research with a careful commitment to ongoing study.
  3. What DNA barcoding is and how it helps us to classify species.
