Still think humans rule the world? Think again. University of Chicago neurobiologist Cliff Ragsdale and other members of the Ragsdale Lab share what they discovered after sequencing the octopus genome. Also interviewed is deep-sea octopus specialist Janet Voight at the Chicago Field Museum.

Evolutionists have theorized that octopi eggs rode on a comet and smashed into the earth to become octopus. Like, what??? Lol. That’s a stretch and if it came from a comet, how did it get on the comet, what planet did it come from and why would it be able to survive in our conditions? This is no accident. The reason they can’t “solve” it completely is due to them already rejecting the only possibility—God created it. When the Bible says that God created earth, all creatures, and everything, it’s directly referring to our real reality: humans, animals, plant life, non-living matter, etc. Nothing can create/make itself—no matter how much time. Time is in fact the enemy; the second law of thermodynamics testifies to this. Bottom line, DNA is information. Information is immaterial. Information does not arise on it’s own but only comes from an intelligent source—a mind. Much like this message coming from me, a human with intelligence. This message couldn’t write itself, nor could the billions of code within our DNA. God bless.

And people don't believe in God. This did not come by itself, this is smart creation.

God is nothing but an explanation for people who don’t care for scientific research

Gman It sure is! Many have come to truth without science.

Illyrian Warrior. An argument from ignorance or incredulity. Theres plenty of science you can research, and you can use new science to refute or refine old...science by definition does not require belief because it is demonstable. Belief is no path to truth.

Octopuses are freaky things.

Has anyone tried raising them while feeding the mother so she doesn't die? It would be interesting to see the generational thing happen. Or are there other factors which cause the mother to die?

Tj Holowaychuk I said virtually the same thing on another video just a few minutes ago, glad to see people are having this idea... It's almost like we should do that as some kind of reparation for all the other sentient beings we as a species have eaten into extinction... You know, make it a part of scuba training...you have to learn how to and be willing in future to help oxygenate and feed breeding nests and the governments of the world must pay for it out of corporate tax.

Tj Holowaychuk the mother won't eat while eggs are laid and hatched, she only digests herself. There's been plenty breeding tests done, but failed to keep the mother alive. Theirs a gland/chemical reaction during an octopus life span that marks the end of their life

It was really amazing to see so many female scientists interviewed for this. THANK YOU

That ending just left me thinking of Chtulu.
