Quote# 84989


I was taught evolution in school but one thing they don't teach is that human DNA is coiled in a helix in a CLOCKWISE manner
and all other species of plants/animals have their DNA coiled in a helix in an ANTI-CLOCKWISE manner.

If evolution exists then all of our DNA, human AND animal AND plant DNA would be coiled in an identical direction. It isn't. My sister was studying biochemistry at University at the time told me of this anomaly.

I have never been able to accept evolution since, but I still had to repeat what I'd been taught in biology class to pass my exam.

"one thing they don't teach"

There's a reason for that.

I went on to post secondary majoring in biology...and I've never heard of this.

You're making shit up.

The most important thing to remember is to never look at the back of a mirror as it will freeze your future into motion.

I have never been able to accept the stupidity of creationism, Focus on the Fundies, the American Fundy ASS-ociation or the Fundy Research Council - not to mention the RaptureRetards.

And I suppose you'd be more than happy to explain how that is chemically possible? Molecules do not work this way.

@Nikolaos, yes they do.

You're right. They don't teach it that DNA's chirality is different for humans than for everything else - for the same reason they don't teach that the moon is made of cheese or that all automobiles run on yogurt.

'one thing they don't teach'

"There's a reason for that."

Least of all Evolution in the Bible Belt states?:



Because it hasn't happened there yet.

They never told you because it's, in simple English, FALSE. DNA has helixes with a similar structure for all the living creatures.

I suspect this guy played Mass Effect, heard about chirality making certain species incompatible, and proceeded to completely misunderstand it and somehow applied that to human evolution.

That, or he's batshit insane.

Go and have a look at the nearest telephone handset cable...


Do they still have those???

In all that time you never once thought to check if her claim was true?

I studied genetics too, and you're wrong.

You know, if you don't understand genetics, you probably shouldn't pontificate about them at length.

If evolution exists then all of our DNA, human AND animal AND plant DNA would be coiled in an identical direction. It isn't. My sister was studying biochemistry at University at the time told me of this anomaly.

Are you sure your sister told you this? Are you sure it wasn't nobody?

You were exposed to science. Horrors. Oh, you poor thing, you.
