Evolutionary stories are good for filling time around the campfire on the trail, but when it comes to something important like cancer research, such thinking is lethal. Using evolutionary assumptions in cancer research is fundamentally flawed and loaded with circular reasoning, and creation science has contrary explanations that can go one-on-one with the spurious research of evolutionary scientists; a creation worldview in science can yield results that are helpful.
Few topics in science news generate more excitement than prospects for curing cancer. Whether or not dinosaurs had feathers is all well and good, but cancer research is a topic that hits people where they live, and where they suffer. Can evolutionary science help medical scientists fight this devastating array of diseases?To finish reading, click on "Evolutionary Conjecture Cannot Cure Cancer".
Temple University’s Sudhir Kumar and colleagues have jumped on that evolutionary cancer research bandwagon. They claim that their study of 500 million years of genetic patterns across the vertebrate evolutionary tree can—through evolutionary predictions—accurately predict mutations associated with cancer and, as a sort of bonus, even explain the genetic underpinnings of human evolution.
