Q: Do mutations provide the raw material for evolution?

A: Genetic copying errors—mutations—can be inconsequential, deadly, or even helpful in certain environments and circumstances. It is claimed that such genetic differences “provide the raw material for natural selection.” While natural selection does operate on the fitness or unfitness of various traits that sometimes appear as a result of mutations, the resulting organisms are only variations of the original kind.

But mutations never produce new information such as would be needed to produce a different kind of organism. The “raw material” provided by mutations is not new information, just recycled old information. When natural selection eliminates certain varieties of organisms from a population, as sometimes happens, the genetic information in the population may even be lost. Thus mutations do not provide the “raw material” for molecules-to-man evolution.

Get EquippedThe Code of Life: DNA, Information, and Mutations

Evolutionary interpretations have led to the incorrect beliefs that mutations and natural selection are responsible for adding the information necessary for molecules-to-man evolution. This DVD will explore the fascinating world of DNA and clearly show that mutations and natural selection are headed in the wrong direction, corrupting and decreasing information in DNA making evolution impossible. The origin of such diversity and variability could only be the God of the Bible!

Pray for AiG

Pray that the creation debate would compel many skeptics and critics to acknowledge the authority of the Bible and the sufficiency of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
