This is true for pretty much every species you can imagine though.
Not to the level and complexity of the Human genome. We are very much unique from anything and everything else on Earth. There are aspects of our genetics the should not exist and can not be explained evolutionarily.

Feel free to elaborate.
I'm not holding my breath on it though.

Dude PM me your source. If we can do some quick sequencing and analysis experiments to show that we can get Noblel prizes!

Most amazing genome regulation I have seen so far are octopus and squid genomes. The complexity and bizarre gene coding/expression breaks all norms comparing to most species sequenced. If anything octopus and squids are that doesn't exist anywhere else on earth

Some quick Nature publication video


Given some other hundreds of thousands of years, ceplapods will definitely dominate earth as the next intelligent species.

What will happen to us then?:(

My speculations? Probably devolved into livestocks. Just as how dinosaurs decedents become the now widely consumed chicken.
Tastes like chicken I guess.. o_o

So in a million years when octopus are ruling the world, their scientists will study us as the ancient race of intelligent great apes that once ruled the earth before them. And they will study our ruins and fossils and eat us in their burgers. Wat.

That is oddly precise.

The solution is simple. We must destroy the octopus before they take over the planet!

I would say maybe we could respect eachother as intelligent life forms and not try to destroy one another... but humans can't even do that with other humans. Maybe we'll think about it when we're not so busy blowing ourselves up?

Hey, we might even unlock the secrets of the universe. One of which might be how to make good use of the Schrodinger's paradox going on with those two comments.

It's not an uncommon myth. But I've yet to see substantiating science for it. Counterpoint has quite a bit of science backing it up, on the other hand.

Most amazing genome regulation I have seen so far are octopus and squid genomes.
I mean if we are going by complexity onions win out on humans by raw code. I think they actually are pretty dang high up there. Not too worried about them.

More close to home, dogs have over double the dna of people, if I am recalling chromosome counts correctly.

Amount of base-pairs is one thing, complexity of genome structure is another. If we are going by shear genome size then wheat and corn would have won easily

I'm having difficulties deciding which flavor conspiracy theory -site article this is about.
Or do I get to pick?

...natural selection is kind of broken due to medicine, healthcare, and social welfare programs. Really the only way for the human gene pool to continue to evolve is through artificial selection (e.g. gene editing) since we've effectively defeated the means through which natural selection works (namely, survival of the fittest). This incessant need to save everyone is leading to a plateauing of society where social programs engulf the collective effort instead of pursuits of science and advancement for a better generation tomorrow.

...yes, rampant artificial selection can lead to deepening of social class divides but to not do it is to ensure there's an ever growing population of the unfortunate suffering from diseases and conditions that should have been snuffed out by natural selection generations ago. Yes, rampant artificial selection can also lead to the same outcomes of unforeseen consequences of mixing genetic code that turns out to be incompatible.

...on the micro scale (ethics and morality) artificial selection is appalling but on the macro scale (all of the things natural selection isn't doing because of science and society) artificial selection is what logically follows the failure of natural selection. Think of what the differences is: people choosing mates according to biological markers versus people designing offspring based on logical decisions. Does this approach not more reflect where society is at today? Would we not rather control variables than leave it completely up to probability? There already is a growing library of known genetic sequences that lead to infant mortality. Imagine if all of that heartbreak and suffering would never happen again. This is where the micro gets mudded by the macro. Is it ethical to ignore the science that could prevent these needless deaths?

...food for thought, anyway.


This realization has left me indifferent on the subject. The positives and the negatives balance each other out in my view so come whatever may.
