Sea Slug #FAIL for Evolution


Another thing that causes consternation for evolutionists is the sea slug. That little critter can save and store some of the plant stuff that it consumes to store energy. In some ways, it's solar powered. Evolutionists thought they had an answer in horizontal gene transfer, and that was the explanation for the hows and whys. But no, that option drew a losing hand. Instead, the creation option is the best one again.
In an everyday scene so bizarre that science fiction writers might never have imagined it, algae-eating sea slugs actually hijack chloroplasts—those tiny plant structures that perform photosynthesis—and use them as energy producers for themselves. Evolutionary biologists have linked a particular mechanism that they thought sea slugs used in this baffling process to a means by which evolution could have crafted similar DNA sequences found in similar-looking creatures that use completely different DNA. But new research heralds bad news for these evolutionary wishes and provides clear evidence for incredible biological creation. 
Solar-powered sea slugs begin by eating algae, just like other slugs and snails. But that’s where the similarities stop. Once the algae is in their gut, these sea slugs use tiny specialized finger-like cellular extensions to detect, select, and literally grasp chloroplasts out of the chewed-up algae and bring them inside their body cells.
