Although is is bad science, Darwin's Drones get mouthy with the idea that antibiotic resistance is proof of evolution. "If there ain't no evolution, why d'ya gotta get a flu shot ev'ry year? Huh? Huh?" This kind of thing shows their lack of education on their own belief system, and creationists have been able to answer the flu shot remark.
Comparing DNA from ancient specimens with modern subjects, researchers were startled to find that some of the ancient pathogens preserved by calculus already had antibiotic resistance. One of the crowns of evolution is cracked again, leaving biblical creationists smiling.
An international research team led by Christina Warinner of the University of Oklahoma has published ground breaking research performed on ancient dental calculus. The research team involved thirty-two investigators at twelve institutions in seven countries. “Dental calculus,” Warinner explains, “is among the richest biomolecular sources yet identified in the archaeological record.”
Calculus is derived from the Greek word Calcis originally used to describe limestone. Like a fossil locked in rock, biological molecules are captured in dental calculus with “exceptional preservation.” The findings upend the long-used iconic example of observable evolution: the development of antibiotic resistance.
In a Science Daily interview, Matthew Collins of the University of York noted: “We knew that calculus preserved microscopic particles of food and other debris but the level of preservation of biomolecules is remarkable. A microbiome entombed and preserved in a mineral matrix, a microbial Pompeii.”You can sink your teeth into the rest of "Ancient Calculus Upends Evolution Icon".
