Is Homology Evidence for Evolution?

Similarities of living organisms
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xrO_oOJWyL8 “There is the front flipper, a hand built on the same model as my own hand.”  Biologists define homology as similarity in structure between different organisms. “Now this has the same design exactly as your arm. There's the upper arm..” My textbook would show the forelimb, a hand and it would show a bat swing and a whale's flipper and say because they have similar structure, you have similar bone pattern, that they must share a common ancestor.  “And then the five very long fingers just like yours” Homology was something that biologists discovered long before Darwin. Aristotle knew about homology. The real question about homology is how do we explain it. There are plenty of examples of homological structures in biology, which are obviously not based on common…

Do similarities between human and chimp DNA’s prove evolution?

Similarities of living organisms
https://vimeo.com/102354414 We've all heard the theory that chimps are close human relatives but is there any truth to that? Secular scientists claimed in the 1970s that chip genomes are 98% similar to humans and it was apparently verified by more modern techniques. But that estimate actually used cherry-picked segment of DNA that we already share with chimps, not the whole genomes. The latest comparison to include all of the DNA between the two species review of no more than 85% identity - a huge difference from what scientists have been claiming for years. And an 85% similarity really isn't surprising. Chimps and humans and dogs, cats, horses, and more share some basic genetic similarities that specify protein that help metabolize food, grow hair, breathe air and drink water. So of…
