Mutations
the Supposed Mechanism
for Evolution


It is claimed that mutations are the mechanism for evolution, but while they do cause changes in DNA, it is only a loss of information.

DNA contains the instruction to build the organism they are found in and to make the proteins and enzymes need for life. Usually most of an organism's DNA is found the nucleus of it's cells.

Mutations are changes in DNA, that usually occur randomly. These mutations can only destroy information, not create new information. They basically result in genetic noise

Some cells have shown evidence of  making deliberate changes in their DNA, allowing the organism to adaptation to specific biological or chemical conditions. This Natural Genetic Engineering is no help to evolution; it is largely a response to a specific situation to produce the appropriate proteins or enzymes and can not grow new organs. The fact that a cell can actually analyze their environment, devises a response to and then store the results in their genes, shows the incredible complexity of life. This makes a naturalistic explanation for the origin of life even more ridiculous.

Evolutionist claim that some mutations are beneficial to the organism, but they are always environment specific and random mutations still represent a loss of information and they often result from a loss of specialization. Such mutations actually produce an organism that is generally weaker than the non mutant, but the mutation just happens to allow the mutant to survive an unusual situation.

A good example of generally less fit organism having a survival advantage under special conditions, can be illustrated with wolves and chihuahuas. Lock a dozen wolves and chihuahuas in a room, give them water but no food. In a week you will only have wolves, because they would have eaten the chihuahuas. Now lets redo this experiment by mounting a bunch of remote controlled machine guns around the room at about 2 feet high. Within seconds of turning on the guns the only living dogs in the room will be the chihuahuas. All the wolves would have been shot.

I gave this example to an evolutionists and was told that in this case the chihuahuas were more fit to survive, and therefor qualified as a beneficial mutation. They see no absolute benefit or harm, but see it as relative.

( No wolves or chihuahuas were actually harmed in the making of this example. )
