Do Mutations Drive Evolution?



This is Ken Ham, on a mission to call the church back to God’s Word and the gospel.


Many evolutionists believe mutations are the driving force behind evolution. Now, mutations are mistakes in DNA. Most mutations are very harmful to an organism … and cause disease and death. Some go unnoticed.

Only a select few are beneficial and only under very specific conditions. Now these mistakes can’t account for the remarkable variety and intricacy we see in creation.

Mutations simply don’t support evolutionary ideas about the past.

But starting with God’s Word, we can understand them. God’s creation was originally perfect. But it was cursed because of sin. And once sin entered, mutations began.
