Important Note: The mutations we discuss in this session are the random mutations that Neo-Darwinists claim to be the driving force of macro-evolution. There is increasing evidence that in fact most mutations aren’t completely random, but are directed to specific areas of the genome where changes can stimulate adaptation. This is additional evidence for design, not random processes.
In Part 1, we look at what mutations are, what they can do, and how that restricts the amount of change possible in an organism. Gene sequencing now makes it possible to match adaptations to specific mutations, so in Part 2 we look at the textbook examples of microevolution in light of gene sequencing. In every example of microevolution used to support Darwinism, mutations only degraded existing genes. No new genes were created. But without new genes, Darwinism is limited to microevolution. Discussion questions
Even MORE important note: The Canadians who work here really like that bear in the picture. Okay, okay. The bear has told us to tell everyone that he is a Boss Bear and that we really like him … if we know what is good for us. He is trying to find fast food kitchen dumpsters owned by people who do not also have rifles. We explained that we don’t know anyone who has either a fast food kitchen dumpster or a rifle. We also explained that it is our moral duty to tell him that dumpster food is not altogether healthy anyway. Then we just ran… 😉 😉 😉
