Test Tube Yeast Evolve Multicellularity: Scientific American
Fun fun fun!
This sounds like a case of guiding the experiment to fit a preconceived conclusion.
We already know that yeast is a destructive creature.
Just seems more prudent to test the theory with something besides what is basically a "weed".
That wasn't the point, it establishes circumstances in which a unicellular organism would become a multicellular.
Nothing about this claims a conclusion, only evidence.
It's obvious that I'm no cellular biologist, but isn't it also obvious that yeast spreads and grows?
I'm just saying that I'd be more impressed if they could demonstrate the same behavior with, say, a cell from a human eye.
(I did enjoy the article and how the different times effected the growth structures, tho)
It's just an example of the events that may lead to colonies becoming multi-cellular instead of just groups of single cells.
I agree, but evolution doesn't act upon single cells in multi-cellular organisms, but upon the entire organism.
Sorry Photonic, but you're not gonna get the good Christian believers to even acknowledge this, until the yeast converts to Christianity and turns their life over to their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Other than that? I think this is cool as heck. Not only that, but I do believe that eventually science is going to figure out answers that we've been asking for a long time.
BTW..........did you hear about the Martian meteorite they found above the Arctic Circle a couple of years back? Seems that the meteorite contained ancient bacteria fossils.
Science has since checked in to the possibility that the planet could have been "seeded" for life with meteors, and guess what? It can.
They also found that there are organic compounds on Pluto of all places.
Considering that, so far, there are only 3 of us in this discussion and you are talking to Photon, I wonder who you could be talking about.....
This is the Science/Technology forum and you are the one injecting religion into the dialogue.
That says more about you than anything I could come up with.
I've acknowledged that I thought it was "cool" also.
Just that I would like to see more examples.
I have never denied evolution exists, btw.
It is yeast that turns grape juice into wine and malted barley into beer. That isn't destructive.
Horty is actually this pretty cool cat, you know.
