This is a really cool research project. Scientists started out with single celled yeast and decided to look into whether selective pressure could evolve multi-cell organisms under lab conditions. They took a really simple approach, simply selecting yeast that settled to the bottom of a perturbed solution (which tend to be heavier or clumped cells) to seed the subsequent generation. After only 60 days (generations), they found strains that were dominated by evolved cell clusters. A bunch of other fascinating behavior observed too. http://arstechnica.com/science/news/2012/01/researchers-evolve-a-multicellular-yeast-in-the-lab-in-2-months.ars I do loves me some applied evolution.

I'd love to hear what the IDiots at the Discovery Institute have to say about that. ----- Excess quoted text cut - see Original Post for more -----

Please...that's the "beauty" of intelligent design....EVERYTHING can be explained by the same simple reason: God did it. On Wed, Jan 18, 2012 at 7:35 AM, Larry C. Lyons <larryclyons@gmail.com>wrote: ----- Excess quoted text cut - see Original Post for more -----

In this case multiple generations in the lab, following classic evolutionary theory. ----- Excess quoted text cut - see Original Post for more -----

This was a local University of Minnesota experiment, BTW.  Good thing it gets so damn cold here, drives people inside and all they can do is science.  :) ----- Excess quoted text cut - see Original Post for more -----

Um, you are doing it wrong? ("it" being winter and being inside) There are other things to do besides science.

There are scientists we are talking about...you know the folks (to generalize) who are notorious for NOT having girlfriends... ROFL... Um, you are doing it wrong?

Since God and evolution can co-exist as discussed here many times this confuses me. Are you now saying evolution proves there's no God? . ----- Excess quoted text cut - see Original Post for more -----

First assumption is that there is a god. I'm still waiting for verifiable evidence that doesn't use a religious document or a collection of 8th century BCE tribal myths. Second this is Sam. What else do you expect his misunderstanding even the most simple of statements as it passes through his ideological filters. ----- Excess quoted text cut - see Original Post for more -----

I get that part but why do we always pretend it's all religion and then clarify we mocking a handful. Isn't it tiring to mock the few that might not even really exist? At least not here anyway. . ----- Excess quoted text cut - see Original Post for more -----

Tru Dat There is a lot of trippy stuff out there; fractals being one of them. One Love, One Energy. If you think about it like that, every molecule could be a living "thinking" thing. Nothing it truly solid right? So... We're in the matrix!

then again what is the greater miracle, the guy in the white robe going all Jehovah on something, or some small tweak to some DNA happening hundreds of millions or even billions of years ago that resulted in Christ (assuming he existed at one point). ----- Excess quoted text cut - see Original Post for more -----

Well, technically, if we follow general relativity then there is no time; all events that did or are going to happen ... have.   Thus God is simply a part of all events ever to be in this universe.
