The octopus is from Mars, and other stories

Jul 21, 2020 | Science


There are certain things in genetics that are truly shocking. Complexity (in this case, of the octopus genome), hybridization between species that are not in any way similar, ancient genetic connections between the Polynesians and the South Americans, and the discovery of massive cassettes of DNA that cause huge changes in organisms–without natural selection or mutation driving the changes–are all new ideas that are amazing and fun to learn about. Some of these are hard to deal with in evolutionary theory. Yet, they fit beautifully into a creation context.
