Minimum Genome Doubles

How many genes does a bacterium need to live?  Evolutionists interested in the origin of life have been trying to determine the minimal genome for life.  Those estimates may have been way too low, say researchers from the University of Bath.  Though they did not supply a number, they estimate the required number of genes should be twice as high as earlier estimates.  Their conclusions were published in Nature this week.1

This means Mt. Improbable just got higher, and the evolutionists cannot use their Natural Selection ice axes to climb.  All they have is bare feet to go straight up on ice, now twice as high, with avalanches every few minutes.
    We should actually use analogies that are more realistic.  This is way too generous to the evolutionists (see online book).
