Back to David's theory of evolution: God's error corrections (Evolution)

David: Double strand DNA breaks have cellular repair mechanisms. This study has a method to follow the mechanisms:

QUOTES: "'One of the main reasons cancer cells are resistant to treatment is that they can inherently repair the DNA damage caused by radiation and chemotherapy…"

"A cell may recognize the damage and use its intrinsic DNA damage response (DDR) to reduce DSB-caused cell death. As a result, the cancer cell's own DNA repair mechanisms can promote drug resistance and recurrence in some malignancies."

DAVID: this article indirectly informs us that cells have more than one system to repair broken DNA double strands. These repair mechanisms must be present to maintain life.

dhw: Have I missed something here? As I understand it, these particular repair mechanisms destroy life.

This study was on cancer cells, but the mechanism is present in all cells, so when cancer appears it uses all available mechanisms present in cells to protect itself against treatment. I should have explained that.
