Our cursed universe is not nearly as tidy as evolution forces people to assume.
Mathematician Herbert Wilf and biologist Warren Ewens, both of the University of Pennsylvania, have teamed up to research supposed answers to the claim that hundreds of millions of years isn’t enough time for life to have evolved.1 Their model purports to show mathematically that, given plausible mutation rates and a selection mechanism (akin to natural selection), there would be ample time in earth’s supposed 4.5 billion-year history for the genomes of complex life-forms to have evolved.
According to their model, however, a full-length genome already exists, and the process of replication and mutation occurs by some presumed biological process outside the study. So even if the genome contains no meaningful information, the evolutionists’ model allows the genome to reproduce without difficulty—and to do so again and again, with “correct” mutations conveniently preserved throughout the process. In reality, such mutations normally prove detrimental and even destructive to the organism. In other words, our cursed universe is not nearly so tidy as their belief in evolution forces them to assume.
Answers in Genesis is an apologetics ministry, dedicated to helping Christians defend their faith and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ effectively. We focus on providing answers to questions about the Bible—particularly the book of Genesis—regarding key issues such as creation, evolution, science, and the age of the earth.
