The Genome and Common Descent


"To suggest that there is overwhelming evidence in support of the claim that humans and chimpanzees have common ancestry is, at best, an overstatement. We have dealt with the issue of pseudogenes using all the examples presented by Alexander in support of his arguments. We have presented counter-arguments that recent research clearly demonstrates that pseudogenes may have very important although, as yet, poorly understood functions. We also have considered the significance of mobile genomic elements such as Alu sequences and human endogenous retroviruses (HERVs). If the infectious origin of HERVs is substantiated, then one can only infer common ancestry if one assumes common ancestry in the first place; and HERVs may be an integral part of the genome"
