"In my professional work as a doctor, I deal with the reality of evolution, from antibiotic resistance through to the deeply flawed human body whose anatomy and physiology is only explicable when seen in the light of its evolutionary origin." Heard personally from a Christadelphian doctor.
The second statement conflicts with the Biblical passages, God's Word, as example Psalm 139:14, the first statement now appears to conflict with the Scientific data, recent research:
Resistance to Antibiotics Is Ancient
ScienceDaily (Sep. 16, 2011) — Scientists were surprised at how fast bacteria developed resistance to the miracle antibiotic drugs when they were developed less than a century ago. Now scientists at McMaster University have found that resistance has been around for at least 30,000 years.

The discovery of antibiotics more than 70 years ago initiated a period of drug innovation and implementation in human and animal health and agriculture. These discoveries were tempered in all cases by the emergence of resistant microbes1, 2. This history has been interpreted to mean that antibiotic resistance in pathogenic bacteria is a modern phenomenon; this view is reinforced by the fact that collections of microbes that predate the antibiotic era are highly susceptible to antibiotics3. Here we report targeted metagenomic analyses of rigorously authenticated ancient DNA from 30,000-year-old Beringian permafrost sediments and the identification of a highly diverse collection of genes encoding resistance to β-lactam, tetracycline and glycopeptide antibiotics. Structure and function studies on the complete vancomycin resistance element VanA confirmed its similarity to modern variants. These results show conclusively that antibiotic resistance is a natural phenomenon that predates the modern selective pressure of clinical antibiotic use.
One only has to watch.
