Don't let anyone tell you that Telic Thoughts has a monopoly on bringing you news about front-loading. We've gotten some competition from Intelligently Sequenced, where Nathan Munson writes:
As the articles states, "sea urchins are echinoderms, marine animals" and the purple sea urchin, "has 7,000 genes in common with humans, including genes associated with Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and Huntington's diseases and muscular dystrophy." Of great interest to intelligent design advocates of front loading is the fact that although the sea urchin has no eyes, nose or ears it does have genes that are homologous to genes found in humans that are involved in vision, hearing and the sense of smell.
