David's theory of evolution:God's error corrections, cancer (Evolution)

The article shows cancer has always been around; this example from a dinosaur:

"This deformed bone is the first clear example of a malignant tumor diagnosed in a dinosaur. The partial fibula—a bone from the lower leg—belonged to a horned, plant-eating Centrosaurus that lived roughly 76 million years ago in what is now Dinosaur Park in southern Alberta in Canada.

"This isn’t the first time cancer has been found in fossil remains. Scientists have identified benign tumors in Tyrannosaurus rex fossils and arthritis in duck-billed hadrosaurs, as well as an osteosarcoma in a 240-million-year-old turtle. But the researchers say their study is the first to confirm a dinosaur cancer diagnosis at the cellular level."

Comment: cancers occur from copy errors in dividing cells. They have been around a long time. This is something God could not stop as He coded DNA for evolution. Our DNA does carry cancer related genes, like BRCA related to increasing the chances of cancer of breasts and ovary, which probably developed somewhere along the way as sapiens developed.
