The Obvious Truth: Creation

Mutations are genetic accidents that occur in living things. Like all accidents, they cause harm and destruction. "Evolution" through mutation is as unlikely as the improvement of a clock by a hammer blow.

Realizing that natural selection has no evolutionary function, evolutionists introduced the concept of "mutation" to their claim in the 20th century. Mutations are distortions taking place in the genes of organisms through external effects such as radiation. Evolutionists claim that these distortions cause organisms to evolve.






 

 

EFFECTS OF CHERNOBYL

The main cause of mutation in humans is radioactivity. The effects of mutations are always detrimental. Those who were exposed to mutation because of the disaster in Chernobyl either suffered from fatal cancers or were born with crippled organs as seen in the pictures.


MUTATION TWINS

The disorder resulting in "Siamese twins" in humans is caused by mutations. These twin frogs which were conjoined at birth give us an idea of the results of mutation.

Scientific findings, however, reject this claim, because all observable efficient mutations cause only harm to living things. All mutations that take place in humans result in mental or physical deformities such as mongolism (Down's syndrome), albinism, dwarfism, or diseases such as cancer.

Another reason why it is impossible for mutations to cause living things to evolve is that mutations do not add any new genetic information to an organism. Mutations cause existing genetic information to be randomly reshuffled similar to playing cards. In other words, no new genetic information is introduced by mutations.

FRUIT FLY EXPERIMENTS

For decades, evolutionists carried out mutation experiments on fruit flies because they reproduce very rapidly and can be easily mutated. These creatures were mutated millions of times in all possible ways. However, not even one beneficial mutation has been observed.

Evolutionary theory, however, asserts that the genetic information of living things increases over time. For instance, while a very simply structured bacterium comprises of 2,000 different types of proteins, a human's organism has 100,000 types of proteins. Exactly 98,000 new proteins have to be "discovered" for a bacterium to evolve into a human being. It is by no means possible for these protein structures to be produced by mutations, because mutations cannot add anything to a DNA chain.


THE DISTORTION OF DNA

The code in DNA determines the physical traits of living things. If a displacement or relocation occurs in this code, because of an external effect like radiation, the organism mutates.

Not surprisingly, so far, not even a single mutation has been observed to develop the genetic information of any life form. Despite being an evolutionist himself, the Former President of the French Academy of Sciences, Pierre-Paul Grassť, made the following admission: "No matter how numerous they may be, mutations do not produce any kind of evolution."18
