Rodent's and Pigs are also quite close to the DNA makeup of humans, although the minister is taking the data out of context

Actually :
The size of the bovine genome is 3 Gb (3 billion base pairs). It contains approximately 22,000 genes of which 14,000 are common to all mammalian species. Bovines share 80 percent of their genes with humans; cows are less similar to humans than rodents (humans and rodents belong to the clade of Supraprimates). They also have about 1,000 genes shared with dogs and rodents but not identified in humans.


The charting of key DNA differences, also known as haplotypes, between several varieties of cattle could allow scientists to understand what is the role of some genes coding for products of economic value (milk, meat, leather). It opens new perspectives for enhancing selective breeding and changing certain cattle characteristics for the benefit of farmers.

And yes, we want to be a super power with people like this in power. Yaay. What a disgrace.
factually his take of 80% mkeup og genetic material being the same is not incorrect.

Lol. Indian junglees make me laugh every day.

Rajnath is right. Laugh if you want at the researchers in the National Institutes of Health and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The size of the bovine genome is 3 Gb (3 billion base pairs). It contains approximately 22,000 genes of which 14,000 are common to all mammalian species. Bovines share 80 percent of their genes with humans; cows are less similar to humans than rodents. They also have about 1,000 genes shared with dogs and rodents but not identified in humans

What about Pigs then?? You do know human and swine DNA are very similar as well. More than 80%.

On Topic: Please excuse yourself from teaching me how that moronic statement is correct. If you feel it is, good for you.

We actually can't because even the educated mix religion with science which is much more dangerous than Religious Zealots of any kind rejecting science.
No need to spread FUD about one group. Every religion have its share of crazies.
