Doolittle predicts, from an evolutionary framework, that jawless vertebrates would have a simpler blood clotting cascade than the human system.
Does the five-digit design of the whale flipper, akin to the five-digit design of so many different kinds of animal limbs, point to evolutionary common descent?
The fact that known natural biological processes can produce non-tree-like patterns is problematic not for ID proponents but for proponents of common ancestry.
The tree-like pattern from the dataset was not very strong. Of course, if you shuffle it, it looks strong compared to randomness.
