Yesterday we saw how, in a new paper, Warren Allmon and Robert Ross reformulate the argument for evolution from homologous structures.
The paper contains a very important concession.
The claim that they found that the expression of dorsoventral transcription factors evolved independently in certain bilaterian lineages is not even wrong.
This is a clear falsification of an evolutionary expectation expressed across many years, and widely held by a consensus of experts.
Methylation of key development genes represses their expression, and with it eye development, in this venerable icon of evolution.
