I don’t know since I am relying on secondary sources. Here is a snippet of the article though…
“However, with a growing number of instances of pseudogene-annotated regions later found to exhibit biological function, there is an emerging risk that these regions of the genome are prematurely dismissed as pseudogenic and therefore regarded as void of function.”
There are different types of convergence and I was specifically referring to functional convergence, which involves what Winston has suggested in his model.
I cannot provide a detailed account of those examples because Old earth Baraminology has not been fully developed yet. But, here is an idea of what those examples might be for now:
The sudden appearances of Avalon, Cambrian fauna, Ordovician, Nekton animals, Odontodes vertebrates, Land vertebrates, Insects, Dinosaurs/birds, placental mammals, Genus Homo, and Humans
Because it is consistent with the origin of life model that I showcased in a recent topic.
Well, HGT does two things to phylogenetic patterns from the study I showed you before:
“We conclude that the observed phylogenetic pattern reflects both vertical inheritance and biased HGT and that the signal caused by common organismal descent is difficult to distinguish from the signal due to biased gene transfer.”
Sure, but why is this a point of contention?
I think you meant to say this is NOT talking about…If so, I have already conceded this, which is why I am invoking Winston’s model to explain the rest of the data.
Quantum tunneling is how he did it. Here is a snippet of an article you should read:
"In summary tunnelling has guided us via prominent examples to biochemistry where quantum tunnels are important infrastructures in the world of functional molecules: spontaneous mutations in DNA, enzymatic reactions and especially energy transduction pathways are highly influenced, supported and even enabled by quantum tunnelling. The transition probability of the tunnelling concept from the field of organic chemistry  to biochemistry  has significantly increased within the past years while, at the same time, the conceptual barrier between chemistry and biology has become smaller and has begun to disappear  (see also Pross, 2013, in this issue).
Quantum Tunnelling to the Origin and Evolution of Life (nih.gov)
I bolded that part to illustrate why you cannot separate the origin of life from evolution, which is also why Universal common design and descent have to be mutually exclusive models. (ex. General relativity and Newton mechanics)
