T:

I noticed the post on the mcn announcement listserv regarding:
<snippet>
Precisely, I need to verify or falsify the following statement:
"our DNA is 97% the same as an Amoeba"
</snippet>

I'm curious. What the heck are you working on?

Thanks for your interest.
I am doing a video from an interview between Young Earth Creationist (YEC) Bob Enyart and Cosmologist/Physicist Lawrence Krauss.

The statement was raised in the interview and I just wanted to confirm whether or not that is really true.
It seems likely that it is, but I still do not have a definitive answer.

Just an update.
I still do not know the definitive answer.
I didn't think there would be so much to it, but there is.

The amoeba dubia has 670 Billion units of DNA.
We humans have a mere 3 Billion units of DNA.

What percentage of those 3 billion match the 670 billion in that particular critter remains unclear to me.

This is the 'test' photo that was uploaded in the demonstration video.
This tree is along the 128 in Navarro.
