Professor Marcus du Sautoy, who led the study, said: ‘Today we take it for granted that the concept of zero is used across the globe and is a key building block of the digital world.
‘But the creation of zero as a number in its own right, which evolved from the placeholder dot symbol found in the Bakhshali manuscript, was one of the greatest breakthroughs in the history of mathematics.
While the use of zero as a placeholder was seen in several different ancient cultures, including the Mayans, the researchers say the symbol in the Bakhshali manuscript it significant for two reasons.
And any deviations from a normal union and offspring is sterile (not capable of reproduction). How could evolutionary processes possibly explain what we see all around us today?
In short, the theory of evolution states that lower life evolved over eons into higher life forms.
If animals of a given species mate and produce an abnormal offspring (i.e. Therefore, how could the macro evolutionary process advance? So if single celled animals formed in the primordial soup and they were asexual (not have either male or female characteristics, but reproducing by themselves, how would they advance to a hermaphroditic state (having both male and female sexual organs) and then to the higher orders of animals which almost always have distinct male and female reproductive organs? The Details: Evolution can only explain asexual or self-fertilizing hermaphroditic reproduction.
Yet we have tens of thousands of the higher orders of species with perfectly matched sexually sets of males and females.
