Evolution—It Holds Back Science!



This is Ken Ham, on a mission to strengthen the global church with God’s Word.


Genes are units of heredity. They pass along genetic information to the next generation. And genes code for proteins in our bodies. But some genes, known as “pseudogenes,” don’t code for proteins. Now, they were considered “junk DNA”; that is, leftovers of our supposed evolutionary past … and with no function. These pseudogenes were largely neglected in research because of this belief.
