[In response to an article about the duck-billed platapus]
Some commentators debate whether this research has anything to do with proving evolution to be true. That's not the case. Evolution is assumed at the outset and thus the study's authors believe the DNA shows something about mammalian ancestry. But from a neutral standpoint all the study reveals is that genotype and phenotype are closely linked. In fact, the presence of features from mammals and reptiles in the same highly specialised animal is not easily explained with common ancestry although an explanation might not be impossible. Evolutionists should concede that point.
