Chromosome #2 in a Nutshell


evidence3.jpgSource (Base Source)


The Theory and The Argument:

The theory of evolution says we evolved from non-human apes such as the Australopithecines. One of the major evidences used to prop up this idea is our chromosome number 2.

Humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes while chimpanzees (supposed to be our closest relative) have 24. If humans and chimps evolved from a common ape ancestor that had 24 pairs, we should find that one of our pairs has fused together to form one.

And that is what we have.

Often this is seen to be the smoking gun proving we evolved, but just like many others, this evidence has fatal flaws in reasoning.

Creating Colors and Chromosome #2

The mixing of two primary colors like blue and yellow to make green is a repeatable, provable phenomena.

No one will argue with that.

But while I was mxing paint on my palette, I couldn't help thinking about the Chromosome #2 Controversy.

These questions floated into my mind:

  • So, does that [evolutionist Chromosome #2 logic] "prove" that the color green "evolved" from two colors to become one?

  • Does that make the color "black" (absorbs all wavelengths) or "white" (scatters all wavelengths) the common ancestors that ALL colors evolved from?

  • Does the physics of color "prove" that colors like Red, Yellow, and Blue "must have" appeared AFTER blackness and whiteness (meaning: not a spontaneous creation of all of them)?

  • If a pre-homo sapien species and an ancient ape species DNA got "scotch-taped together" and resulted in one less pair of chromosomes, thereby "creating" the homo sapien species, what is the "why", "how long", or "who" behind such an event.

  • What if the 23 pairs (46 chromosomes) in humans - vice the 24 pairs in apes - "just is" by design?

  • In other words, what if homo sapien is not a mixing of anything - just a new species (engineered or not) that suddenly showed up on Earth one day [creationist, ancient alienist, cosmological spiritualist, holographist, multiversian Chromosome #2 mindset]?

It's questions like these that make me believe that the arguements for Chromosome #2 "proving" this theory or that theory is all biased, rhetorical bullshit.

To me, Chromosome #2 doesn't favor ANY theory.

From where I stand, creationists, darwinists, spiritualists, ancient alienists, etc. could easily spin a story around Chromosome #2 to "prove" their own beliefs.

And therein lies the big problem; that is, if a person begins with an a priori assumption, observations tend to be consciously or unconsciously filtered out (or included) simply to favor personal beliefs and any conclusions are severely tainted with bias from the outset.

Stated differently, preconcieved notions lead to "horse-blinder" mentality.


"People who live their whole lives in an all Red environment can't imagine any other color - much less a combination of colors..." - JaiChai



If our fused chromosome [Chromosome #2] were to be the ‘nail in the coffin’ proving evolution from apes, then we should expect that no other theory can adequately explain this feature.

Of course, the creationary fusion theory explains it in much the same way as the evolutionary one (without the millions of years or the idea that it fused from non-human ape chromosomes).

Everything about Chromosome #2 - especially all the pundit banter badminton going on, just makes me go, "Hmmm...Imagine that?!"

Am I missing something here?

I would love to hear your views.

In spite of a fear of heights and deep water, he performed high altitude, free-fall parachute jumps and hazardous diving ops in deep, open ocean water.

After 24 years of active duty, he retired in Asia.

Since then, he's been a full-time, single papa and actively pursuing his varied passions (Writing, Disruptive Technology, Computer Science and Cryptocurrency - plus more hobbies too boring or bizarre for most folk).

He lives on an island paradise with his teenage daughter, longtime girlfriend and three dogs.
