Myoglobin evolution

Postby Brian Jordan » Fri Jun 14, 2013 1:14 pm

Apparently marine mammals have evolved a subtly different myoglobin molecule which can be packed into muscle tissue at high concentrations without clumping together. This is because it is in a positively charged form.
How can gaining a positive charge be due to degradation of the genome? Well, I suppose the creationists would say don't think of gaining a positive charge, think of losing a negative one. And that all the affected species are members of the positive "kind".
So easy to do their work for them!
