Many thanks to Mr. J Martin and his Publisher, for this work: (John B)
Mr. Martin writes: ” When I began to feel the pressure of having no EXPERIMENTALLY VARIABLE FACTS, to substantiate my position as theistic evolutionist, I turned to what I thought was my ace in the hole: GENETICS. Didn’t everyone know that the science of genetics had irrevocably shown that evolution in progress? Without mutations (changes in the genes and chromosomes), there is no evolutionary change. The question my students asked was, “Do mutations produce new life forms, or improvements in present life forms”? Naturally, I assumed they produce new life forms and I thought I could prove if from the Scientific Literature. I was due for another rude awakening!
Many Creationists * [ Dr. Walter Brown wrote a paper several years ago on the evidences for creation. In his footnotes was a selection of quotes from pro-evolutionary literature dealing with genetics. For this valuable information , please contact Dr. Walter Brown, The Center for Scientific Creation, 5612 North 20th Place, Phoenix, AZ. 85016.] and evolutionists study the phenomenon of genetic mutation. Dr. Ernst Mayr of Harvard expressed the predominant view of evolution’s. ” Ultimately, all variation is, of course, due to mutations.” He tells and instructs us that all variation, ( different types of plants and animals) observable in life is due to changes in the genes and chromosomes. These mutations occur in the make-up of the DNA. Dr. Ernst Mayr, Mathematical Challenges to the Neo-Darwinian Interpretation of evolution. (Philadelphia: Wister Institute Press, 19676, p. 50
DNA: THE LANGUAGE OF THE CELL.
Note(JB) To give all credit, as possible to C. Darwin, in his writing days , 1840’s, the best microscopes available, made a single living cell appear as a blob! today with the Electron Microscopes the magnification factors are over 40,000 times the size of increase, and looking a living cell in one of these,shows us there’s more events in a single living cell that in a whole city block of New York at rush-hour! Including “Trucks”, moving themselves with a whirling tail, that takes proteins/ amino acids, from one part of the cell to another, for further processing?”
DNA, the basic information system of the cell, contains the blue prints needed to manufacture 2,000 or more different proteins. Each of these proteins is manufactured in a little “Cell- Factories”, at the direction of the DNA. and is essential for the maintenance of life itself.
So which came first? IF DNA is essential in the manufacturing process produces the proteins essential in the manufacturing process produces the proteins essential to DNA, then you can’t have one without the other. This MUST mean they both had to be present, (CREATED) at the same exact point in time! In other words, A Creator God must have created the information system of all cells at a single point in time, and it had to be fully functional for life itself. Proteins are needed to make DNA, but DNA is needed to make the proteins! DNA provides the instructions to the chemical factories inside the cell for making itself!
NOTE(JB) Yes, nature itself can make or, produce chemicals, by the natural processes of mixing materials together by soil erosion, floods etc. However, there has not yet been found, nor by human development, any chemical (S) that are able to carry and hold in storage any kind of information, in any known forms! This fact along destroys the idea of life springing up all by itself! Only LIFE produces life, and The Father God has life within Himself, thus the source of all life!
Science and scientists call DNA the “Language of the Cell”. All scientists agree that language requires intelligence. Notice the language is information and information is non-material. Could there be an implication here that DNA, the “Language of the Cell”, required non-material intelligence to create it? [is that not an oxymoron at best or “Circular thinking at worst?” JB]
Could it be that DNA was created fully functional in all different kinds of life forms, by an intelligent designer God, Who ingeniously inserted thousands and thousands of pages of unbelievable complex technical information into some microscopic strands of protein called DNA.? The God described in the Holy Bible would have no problems with this complexity!
Thus, evolution offer no answers to this weighty problem of the volumes of information carried by the DNA. Information requires intelligence. Evolutionary theory claims no activity of intelligence in the evolution of life forms. Yet the God of Creation proclaims through His Holy Scriptures, “I created, created, created.!”
How then does a professor who is a believer in evolution on a university campus answer the following syllogism?
LANGUAGE IS CAUSED BY INTELLIGENCE
DNA, IS THE LANGUAGE OF THE CELL
THEREFORE, DNA, HAD AN INTELLIGENT CAUSE.
THE PROFESSORS ANSWER WITH SILENCE!
THE GENETIC INFORMATION OF THE D.N.A.:
This information cannot be improved upon in any normal, healthy organism. Natural selection, or “Survival of the fittest,” does not PRODUCE A NEW GENES; it merely selects the best-suited animal or plant life to a specific niche or environment. This is adaptation to a scientific environment and not any type of mutation. Yet mutation is the only mechanism scientists have proposed to generate the “NEW” genetic information needed for evolutionary change in the molecules-to-man model. This presents an enormous problem for the evolution model, especially when we learn that mutation in a gene is a rare event, and even more of a rarity is if the mutation is of benefit!
NOTE(JB) : A “cleft-Pallet” is a mutation, now how can this mutation be called a benefit to those who are so afflicted? Albino-ism, is a mutation, yet any such animal is soon lunch, for it has lost all ability to hide, to blend in!
QUESTION: If, in fact and deed, mutations are very rare, how could life have evolved into all its millions of forms, if the very mechanism that caused it to “Evolve” (mutations) is itself very rare? Francisco Ayala. “The Mechanics of Evolution,” Scientific American, September 1978, p.63.
Indeed most scientists would agree that when mutations do occur in nature they are either harmful to the organism or harmless, (silent mutations), but there has never been an observed beneficial mutation that added NEW genetic information.
“The process of mutation is the only source of raw material of genetic variability, and hence of evolution… The mutants which arise are, with rare exceptions, deleterious to their carriers, at least in the environments which the species normally encounters.” Theodosius Dobzhansky, “On Methods of Evolutionary Biology and Anthropology.” American Scientist, winter, December 1957, p.385
Dobzhansky, spent his professional life breeding and mutation fruit flies. In the end, he had somewhat strange fruit flies, but fruit flies none-the-less. Some were not able to reproduce as they had become sterile. He writes that “Mutations are almost always harmful ( meaning that the mutation in its genes, makes the life-form that receives the mutated genes, is less able to survive where it lives) . I might, add again, here that mutations are harmless or neutral at best, lethal at worse, and never have been proven to be, in a undisturbed nature, to be beneficial. So, why do evolutionists continue to put all their faith in mutations as the chief mechanism for their evolutionary existence? It seems obvious that they do not want to “LET A DIVINE FOOT IN THE DOOR!”
NOTE(JB) With millions of different life forms living today, and many 1,000’s already extinct, with billions of photographs, miles of video films of nature, none have produced a single “Evolutionary Event, to date! If they had we’d never hear the end of it, right?
HAVE DOG BREEDERS, PROVED EVOLUTION?
Today’s dogs, come in a bewildering amount of breeds, from all types of temperaments, coloration, short-hair, long-hair, straight -hair, curly-hair, and from as small as a few pounds to those mastiff’s coming in at over 200 pounds! They now have pure-blood breeds standing but 8-10 inches to the shoulders, to the Great Danes at 36 inches from the ground to their shoulders, and everything in between!
However, when one breed is mixed with another, there MUST be a loss of DNA ! A loss of the genetic materials from each breed, to produce the mixed, and then the successive breeding to retain the look and or qualities the breeder is searching for! The breeder will not ever again, regain the lost Genetic Material from his Poodle, which will not ever revert back to another breed unless and until MR STUD MONGREL ‘HEINZ 57’, jumps over your fenced to supply some extra genetic material!
ARE GUPPIES EVOLVING?
Some time ago, the evolutionary community presented to the public on of their examples of evolution in progress> It was a family of Guppies that had been separated from their old friends for several years, When the guppies were re-united, they would not breed. Evolutionists consider a life-form to be a NEW SPECIES when it will no longer mate with its old companions! But, who among us can read the minds of guppies? They in all but the mating facet, still looked like, and acted like guppies, so why the New Species Pronouncement? Is this not forcing the facts, no matter the fit, into one’s preconceived ideas? It this not akin to hammering square pegs into round holes, and proclaim they fit! Plus, if we disagree, we both, are the fools?
Tell me, the why the scientists told humans to evacuate around the Three Mile Island and the Chernobyl Nuclear Reactor plants leaked radiation? Why didn’t these scientists, move their families into these areas, to be irradiated so that mutations might develop and they could then “Evolve:” to the next higher life form”?????
No, they en mass, got as far away, as soon as possible to avoid the mutation causing radiation!
As a Professor of Genetics at the University of Wisconsin, James Crow writes: “…mutants would usually be detrimental. for a mutation is a random change of a highly organized reasonably smoothly function living body. A random change in the highly integrated system of chemical processes which constitute life is almost certain to impair it— just as random interchanging of connections in a television set is not likely to improve the picture quality! James Crow, “Genetic Effects of Radiation,” Bulletin of Atomic Sciences, 14 (1958) p.19-20.
Dr. Loren Eiseley, “The Immense Journey”, (New York, random House ,1957 P. 199.
“With the failure of these many efforts [to prove evolution to be true], science was left in the somewhat embarrassing position of having to postulate theories of living origins it which could not demonstrate. After having chided the theologian for his reliance on myth and miracle, science found itself in the unenviable position of having to create a mythology of its own: namely, the assumption that what, had in truth, taken place in primeval past’ Emphasis added!
E.J.H. Corner, “Evolution” in Contemporary Botanical thought” , eds. Anna M. Macleod, and L.S. Cobley, Oliver and Boyd, for the Botanical Society of Edinburgh 1961 , p.97 as quoted (partially) from The Quote Book, p.11. “The theory of evolution is not merely the theory of origin of species, but the only explanation of the fact that organisms can be classified into this hierarchy of natural infinity. Much evidence can be adduced in favor of the theory of evolution– from biology, and bio-geography and paleontology, but I still think that, to be unprejudiced the fossil record of plants is in favor of special creation.”Why can he think this non-evolutionist ideas?”
OPHRYS STYLIDIUM ORCHID:
You will most probably not ever read in any school text-book or in any public library about this orchid! As it is “MISSION IMPOSSIBLE”, TO DESCRIBE IT IN EVOLUTIONARY TERMS! This amazing little flower is designed by its Creator Jesus Christ to make us think about Him and for us ti give Him the glory for His Creations!
This orchid has its petals and on the end of one of the stamens ( the thing that sticks up in the middle of the flower) is a configuration that looks like a certain species of female wasp. How does evolution explain a flower that mimics a particular insect? The aroma that the orchid puts out is the same aroma that the female wasp puts out when she is looking for a Mr. Wasp! So the male wasp, flying around , looking for a female sees this wasp like female in the flower, and lands on the flower. But does he ever get a surprise! The part of the flower, that looks and smells like Mrs Wasp, in on a hinge-action, spring-loaded joint. When Mr. Wasp lands on the part, or the flower, the spring- loaded joint flips him down into the flower and pollen sacs attach to his head.
When the male climbs out from the flower, he keeps finding the fake wasps in the flowers, which are now pollinated for the next generation of orchids! This lasts only two weeks of the flower to flower Pops. Two weeks after the males mature then the FEMALE wasps come on the scene, and the males then finds the real wasps>
All this must take place in a two window, and both must be perfectly times or the orchids will become extinct! How can evolution arrange this symbiotic relationship? When the Males are looking for a mate, and they , the females,will not be ready until the two weeks have passed?
All this MUST pint to the most solid of evidence, for Creation by an intelligent designer!
EVOLUTION OF BIRDS:
Note(JB) Today it’s popular to say that dinosaurs evolved into birds, because of some similar bone structures. IF, that is our criteria, then can we say that all life forms with four legs, are of the same species? NO!
The “evolution” of birds is a “matter of deduction.” “DEDUCTION” in this case is a polite synonym for imagination. The evolutionists are back to guessing again. There is not a single, undisputed fossil that shows the evolutionary transitions of clod-blooded reptiles into warm-blooded birds! W. E. Swinton, “The Origin of Birds” chat.1 in biology and Comparative Physiology of Birds” A.J. Marshall ed. Vol 1. (New York: Academic Press, 1960 p. 1 As quoted in the Quote Book, p.11.
