Mutations: Evolution Going in the Wrong Direction
Evolution is full of enormous problems that cannot be solved. The goo to you via the zoo model does not work. Mutations cannot create new genetic material for natural selection to choose from.
It is questionable whether beneficial mutations exist at all. While some may bring about beneficial results, such as the one causing sickle-cell anemia, which protects against malaria, they do not add new genetic information. They reduce it.
(One of the leading experts on sickle cell disease is Dr Felix Konotey-Ahulu, who is a creationist.)
Mutation controls in cells tend to make things very awkward for Darwinian evolution.
In a brief video clip from Evolution’s Achilles’ Heels, Dr. Robert Carter talks about purported beneficial mutations.
