A new study shows that antibiotic resistance in bacteria points out yet another flaw in Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution.
According to Darwinian evolution, MRSA, an antibiotic-resistant bacteria, should have developed a gene mutation after coming in contact with the antibiotic methicillin. Natural selection would have favored the resistant bacteria.
