Archaeans are amazing microbes that run on completely different metabolic processes than other microbes. Discovering the first of them must have been like finding a car that runs on hydrogen fuel cells amidst a landscape of gasoline-powered vehicles. This was the privilege of evolutionary biologist Carl Woese, who died on December 30, 2012.
The biochemistry of these tiny survivors is so fundamentally different from most oxygen-burning creatures that evolutionists like Woese believed it must have evolved way back when the first normally-functioning bacteria were also inventing themselves.
But though these bacteria defy so many norms of microbial life, they don’t appear ancient at all. Scientists observe them alive today, albeit in hostile places like deep sea toxic vents. Why call them ancient if scientists did not actually observe them billions of supposed years ago?
In fact, Woese was familiar with at least two reasons why archaea could never have evolved.
