What is really going on with these types of similar genes and how can they be interpreted within a special creation model as opposed to a naturalistic framework?
With the advent of modern biotechnology, researchers have been able to determine the actual sequence of the roughly three billion bases of DNA (A, T, C, G) that make up the human genome.
They have sequenced the genomes of many other types of creatures as well.
Although these types of genes can be easily aligned and compared, the overall approach is biased towards evolution.
It also avoids the majority of genes and sequences that would give a better understanding of DNA similarity concepts.
How these genes are regulated will vary with the organism.
