Massive Genetic Study Reveals 90 Percent Of Earth’s Animals Appeared At The Same Time

What to make of this new research?
Considering the theory of evolution has always been, a theory. 
Despite it's wide acceptance as reality.
Hence it's moniker.
But, Is it actuality?

 The latest research is debunking current knowledge about evolution. After studying 5 million genetic barcodes, scientists found 90 percent of species on Earth may have emerged around the same time as humans. 
Landmark new research that involves analyzing millions of DNA barcodes has debunked much about what we know today about the evolution of species.

In a massive genetic study, senior research associate at the Program for the Human Environment at Rockefeller University Mark Stoeckle and University of Basel geneticist David Thaler discovered that virtually 90 percent of all animals on Earth appeared at right around the same time.

More specifically, they found out that 9 out of 10 animal species on the planet came to being at the same time as humans did some 100,000 to 200,000 years ago.

"This conclusion is very surprising," says Thaler, "and I fought against it as hard as I could." 

What Is DNA Barcoding?

Over the last decade, hundreds of scientists collected around 5 million DNA barcodes from 100,000 animal species in different parts of the globe. Stoeckle and Thaler looked through these 5 million genetic imprints to find one of the most surprising discoveries about evolution to date.

There are two types of DNA. Most people know nuclear DNA. This is the DNA containing the genetic blueprint for each single individual. It is passed down from the parents to the offspring. The genome is made from kinds types of molecules arranged in pairs. There are 3 billion of these pairs, which are then used to form thousands of genes.

The other, less familiar type of DNA is one found in the mitochondria of cells. The mitochondria generate energy for the cell and contains 37 genes. One of these is the COI gene, which is used to create DNA barcodes. All species have a very similar mitochondrial DNA, but their DNA is also different enough so we can distinguish between species.

Paul Hebert, biologist and director of the Biodiversity Institute of Ontario, developed a new way to identify species by studying the COI gene. 

Born Around The Same Time

In analyzing the COI of 100,000 species, Stoeckle and Thaler arrived at the conclusion that most animals appeared simultaneously. They found that the neutral mutation across species were not as varied as expected. Neutral mutation refers to the slight DNA changes that occur across generations. They can be compared to tree rings because they can tell how old a certain specie or individual is.

As to how that could have happened, it's unclear. A likely possibility is the occurrence of a sudden event that caused large-scale environmental trauma and wiped out majority of the Earth's species.

"Viruses, ice ages, successful new competitors, loss of prey — all these may cause periods when the population of an animal drops sharply," explains Jesse Ausubel, director of the Program for the Human Environment.

Such times give rise to sweeping genetic changes across the planet, causing new species to appear. However, the last time such an occurrence took place was 65 million years ago, when an asteroid hit the Earth and killed off the dinosaurs and half of all other species on the planet.

Thinkers and their thoughts are most welcome to share!


  1. This fits in with the puzzle about human beings and how some of our own DNA chromosomes are "fused" together which is unnatural in all of nature... It leads to the idea once again that mankind was introduced to this planet along with so many other animals artificially some 100000+ years ago by the group that is called the "Anunaki" to be used as slaves for mineral extraction on this planet.... This is a theory of course..

    If this finding does indeed pan out, then a lot of our ideas about "evolution" will have to change as well... BUT I personally will not fall into the idea that a magical "sky fairy" is involved for I look elsewhere for the real answers..

    1. Hey North:
      thanks for sharing
      re: the idea of our dna being fused- looked into that very quickly and see the latest shows that idea to be debunked

      IF this is what you are referring to?
      I'm not sure.

      I've heard of the Anunaki/Anunnaki-
      And see YaYa mentions that concept below as well.
      Not sure what to make of all that..

  2. A few thoughts:

    DNA has become the latest, greatest hook on which to hang copious corporate research funding. It's in its infancy and will evolve in whatever manner is officially desirable.

    The Anunnaki might as well have been ordinary humans for all the difference in their behaviour. It's no accident that citizens are obligated to pledge allegiance to "God" and the flag (the state) and not to one another.

    There seems to be a date difference (and spelling differences):

    Ezekiel less than 6,000 years ago (if you believe the creationists) saw space ships and aliens land on earth.

    IMO: The universes are so vast (or so small, since it's all just perception) that even the Anunnaki are insignificant. Every atom of every thing contains all of the knowledge that exists, and maybe someday we'll be able to stand still long enough to get the message.

    And if any of us does, we'll be locked in a looney bin.

    1. YaYaC: "Every atom of every thing contains all of the knowledge that exists, and maybe someday we'll be able to stand still long enough to get the message"

      Now that's an interesting thought!

  3. Aliens just dropped them off when passing through the region;-)

    1. Hi jo6pac:

      If all this appeared in a way to close time frame to consider evolution over extended time periods then... we need to rethink everything we've been taught

      That said this 'simultaneous' appearance of species would explain why it is the same dna is shared by all species of the planet. An idea I'd been exposed to some years ago

      "How much DNA do plants share with humans? Over 99%?

      This is a number which we need to be careful with.

      First, there is only one type of DNA! ALL animals and plants share the same DNA which is basically a code of only 4 'letters' which code for the same amino acids from which all proteins are made. There is a complication that some amino acids have more than one code which specifies it - there are plenty of examples where a change of codes (eg a mutation) can result in NO CHANGE in the amino acid which is specified.

      It is not surprising that all animals and plants have the majority of their GENES in common. The mechanism by which sugars are oxidised to release their energy (respiration) is almost universal. There are dozens of enzymes involved with this process alone. Each enzyme is a protein and each one needs to be coded for in DNA. There are many enzymes involved in the replication of DNA itself. Other processes are almost universal too."
