The transition from single-celled to multicellular organisms was one of the most significant developments in the history of life on Earth. Without it, all living things would still be microscopic and simple; there would be no such thing as a plant or a brain or a human. How exactly multicellularity arose is still a mystery, but a new study, published January 16 in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, found that it may have been quicker and easier than many scientists expected.

Test Tube Yeast Evolve Multicellularity

Scientists manage to demonstrate the evolution of multicellularity in yeast cells through artificial selection. Creationists always claim that this is impossible I wonder what excuses they have in store for us now.
