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
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.
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

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
