In the same book I read it mentioned of antibiotic resistance bacteria. According to evolutionist theory accepted, the emergence of antibiotic resistance bacteria was due to the overused of antibiotic starting from 1949 ( although penicillin was discovered i 1928 ). But this book author pointed out they were two dead bodies of explorers who dies in 1800's where the antibiotic resistance bacteria was found in their body / bodies. How the evolution (adaption ) can be fit in here?
But what I read in this article is even further back in history.
Healthy comment always welcome.
"The gut bacteria inside 1000-year-old mummies from the Inca Empire are resistant to most of today’s antibiotics, even though we only discovered these drugs within the last 100 years."
"Her team studied the DNA within the guts of three Incan mummies dating back to between the 10th and 14th centuries and six mummified people from Italy, from between the 15th and 18th centuries. They found an array of genes that have the potential to resist almost all modern antibiotics, including penicillin, vancomycin and tetracycline."
"Their finding shows that genes that can confer resistance to antibiotics were relatively widespread hundreds of years before Alexander Fleming discovered penicillin in 1928. “It’s ridiculous to think evolution of antibiotic resistance began when penicillin was discovered,” said team-member Raul Cano, also at California Polytechnic State University, at the meeting while discussing the findings. “It’s been going on for 2 billion years.”"
