What Is DNA?

Scientists have discovered an unmistakable language within all living things. Like a miniature library, DNA stores piles of information in extraordinary molecules that specify the details of everything from the shape of flower petals to the color of your eyes. A supremely intelligent Author and Life-Giver left His indelible message in every living thing.

Genetics and Interbreeding

The species on earth today descend from the original created kinds of Genesis 1. The many inter-species breedings that are possible today (e.g., zonkeys, wholphins), as well as the close similarities within biological groups (e.g., the canine group) that are distinct from one another, remind us of this fact. But exactly why the created kinds have fractured into many incompatible species has only been answered indirectly by creationists.

Hox Gene—Gaining or Losing Genetic Information?

Successful evolution requires the addition of new information and new genes that produce new proteins that are found in new organs and systems. Losing structures, or misplacing their development, should not be equated with the increased information that is needed to form novel structures and cellular systems.

Genetics and “Creating ” Life

“Minimal genomes” is the number of genes considered essential for a bacterium to survive in a nutrient-rich, stress-free and competitor-free environment in the lab. Evolutionists believe if the genes universal to all life can be determined then it’s just a matter of tinkering with the existing genetic information via mutations to go from goo to you.
