Mutations and Darwinism
Covers the fact that evolution is true but going the wrong way. The
problem with evolution has never been the survival of the fittest, but
the arrival of the fittest, and this is still the most serious problem
today with Darwinism. The fact is, we are descending genetically as
the scriptures teach, not ascending upward biologically, as evolution
incorrectly teaches. A major theory of the source of phenotype
variations for natural selection to select from is macro-mutations.
The empirical evidence, however, is clear—neither macro-mutations nor
micro-mutations can provide a significant source of new genetic
The fact is Mutation accumulation does not lead to new species or even to new organs or tissues. What mutations eventually lead to is sickness and death because the vast majority of mutations, over 99.99%, are near neutral or harmful. In each new generation of humans an estimated 100 to 200 new mutations are added to the human gene line. Thus 100 to 200 new mutations are added to the offspring compared to the parents. Both creationists and Intelligent Design advocates conclude that the only plausible source of genetic information is intelligence. Intelligent Design only postulates an intelligent source, and creationists conclude the source is an Intelligent Creator we call God.
