Most of us have been taught that mutations are ‘the vehicle of evolution’. That evolution took place through millions of these mutations.
As I began studying this subject, I discovered two very interesting facts.
First, no scientist has ever discovered a series of mutations that have caused a change from one kind of creature to another. Unless this can be shown, no evolution has ever taken place.
Secondly, mutations are bad. They never have a positive result (at least not permanently). Why are they so harmful? Because mutations are a result of information being subtracted from the genetic code of a creature or organism.
Down’s syndrome is just one human example of a mutation. These mutations are always harmful, deadly or, at best, neutral (no known effect).
But, some would argue, what about mutations of bacteria that allows them to survive in an antibiotic substance? Isn’t that proof that mutations can be good.
Not so fast.
These mutations are still bacteria that are lacking information that the normal bacteria have. The mutation (missing information) allows the bacteria to survive but they die off much faster once they are put back into normal population of that same type of bacteria. So instead of a permanent advantage, the mutation is still harmful in the long run.
Is there a human example of this type of thing? Could a harmful mutation actually be a good thing? Well, yes. But again it is temporary.
A good example might be blindness. Is blindness ever good? It could be in certain situations. For instance, we know (through studies) that people that are relaxed have less of a tendency to be seriously or fatally injured in an automobile accident than those that are tense.
If a blind person was relaxed before a serious auto accident (because he could not see the accident coming), it is possible that blindness could be the reason that the person’s life was saved. So it is feasible that a serious disability could save a person’s life. But no one would desire to be blind in regular life experiences because it may save their life in an auto accident someday.
Once the blind person is back into regular society, the disadvantage of blindness becomes apparent once again.
The process of evolution would require the exact opposite of mutations. It would call for the addition of information (positive genetic information) not a subtraction of it. This has never been observed to occur.
The two serious problems with the theory that mutations have lead to evolution is that there is no scientific evidence to show that they can result in good effects and there is no scientific proof whatsoever to show that mutations have caused a new and improved kind of creature (the previously mentioned bacteria are still the same kind of organism). Until it can be proven that mutations can be good (permanently) and that these mutations cause new kinds of improved creatures or organisms, evolution remains impossible.
Mutations, the ‘vehicle for evolution’ are heading in the opposite direction that it should be… if evolution were true. It takes great faith to believe that mutations could conceivably lead to new and improved creatures. To date, science certainly does not give any evidence that evolution is possible through mutations.
