ungani angikutholi kahle uma ungibuza ukuthi ngicabangani nge genetic engineering. Well that's a fact, phela a fact is something which is known to exist, kule proof yakhona, and there is proof of genetic engineering and we live with it. How can one dispute that? Something that has a possibility of existing in the future cannot be a fact today. For instance, there is a possibility of coming up with a vaccine against the H.I Virus. The vaccine is not a fact today, it might be in future but what is fact today is the possibility. A possibility has a probability of failure and so we cannot say today's possibilities are tomorrow’s facts. They might be or might not.
Why would you think that the FACT that we are genetically related to animals is unfortunate? The structure of the genetic material is universal, with subtle differences here and there, but the gene expression and regulation is different. You probably have studied genetics and I assume you understand the complexity of gene regulation and control. But how does that prove your point? Even the endosymbiotic theory doesn’t present enough evidence for me to discard creationism.
You see, your greatest problem is that creationism cannot be disproved as easily as Friedrich claimed to have disproved vitalism by synthesising urea from inorganic components. Are you an atheist?
