Remodeling the Octopus

Can one remodel something that doesn’t exist?

Jeffery had this interesting comment on last month’s Evolution in the News.

From the Octopus Evolution section of the latest newsletter:

"Our analysis suggests that substantial expansion of a handful of gene families, along with extensive remodeling [Jeff’s emphasis] of genome linkage and repetitive content, played a critical role in the evolution of cephalopod morphological innovations, including their large and complex nervous systems."

My question to the evolutionists would be, "If something is being, or has been RE-modeled, doesn't it require it first be modeled? - especially since, as you say "their large and complex [Jeff’s emphasis] nervous systems." Isn't that basically the same as design? Don't all models require that first they be designed?

Apparently, they weren't constantly keeping in mind that all living things have only the appearance [Jeff’s emphasis] of design. :-)

Evolutionists assume that everything evolved from something else. Therefore, its genome had to be the result of some change to a previous genome. Some part of the genome had to be duplicated, or deleted, or switched around somehow, or inherited from some other creature. It’s just the way they think. It never seems to occur to them to ask where the genome they are remodeling came from. It’s like the old joke about the woman who said, “It’s turtles all the way down!” 1
