Consider a recent paper in Annual Review of Genetics which observes that huge percentages of eukaryotic genes tell conflicting stories about common descent.
Debates will continue about the best way to reconstruct evolutionary trees. But perhaps there’s a more fundamental problem.
“I think there is such a thing as a sensus divinitatis, and in some people it doesn’t work properly,” Plantiga said.
Although common ancestry of apes and humans is compatible with intelligent design, the actual scientific evidence for the thesis is a lot more dicey than many people think.
“For about 23% of our genome, we share no immediate genetic ancestry with our closest living relative, the chimpanzee.”
