Evolutionists have long boasted that bacteria evolved resistance when antibiotics were introduced by man. There is clear evidence for bacterial resistance so this argument for evolution seemed to carry great strength.
Well, like most things man “knows” we find out otherwise. As it turns out, some cases of antibiotic resistant bacteria were not caused by evolving antibiotic-resistant genes but were perhaps caused by the deterioration of genes that exist or existed for other purposes.
In 1988 scientists discovered antibiotic-resistant genes on the frozen bodies of Arctic Explorers who died in 1848, long before antibiotics had been produced. When the bacteria were revived, some were found to be already resistant to certain antibiotics confounding the idea of evolution being the sole cause for this resistance. ”R.
