Evolution and humans; our unique genes (Evolution)

David's comment: Lucky or designed?

dhw: Weird! It certainly seems like a random mutation if the head and tail were chopped off during duplication, but the constructive fusion and the new human-specific genes described in the rest of the article suggest that intelligence is at work. More evidence of the autonomous ability of cells to work out ways of improving - or are you suggesting that God dabbled, or preprogrammed the chopping off process and fusion 3.8 billion years ago?

DAVID: You are suggesting that cells dabble in their own DNA! All we know so far is methylation which is an addition to existing genes for adaptations, not restructuring genes to make bigger brains. We know some of the repair mechanisms but this is way beyond those issues. This is gene fusion.

So are you or are you not suggesting that your God personally intervened to chop off the head and tail and bring about the fusion? Or that he preprogrammed it all 3.8 billion years ago?
