Genetic Entropy – Why You Should Believe In Creation …And Not Evolution | David Rives
September 10, 2019
Why should you believe in creation and not evolution? I mean scientifically speaking. Haven’t we proven that evolution is a fact? Did you know that for every generation that passes, more and more mistakes are piling up in the human genome? This means that your DNA has more mistakes than your parents DNA, which has more mistakes than their parents DNA, which has more mistakes than their parents, which has, well you get the point. These mistakes are caused by mutations which are basically copying errors when DNA is replicated. Now, thankfully for us, most of these mutation have no noticeable effect but even if we don’t notice it, they’re still there, corrupting our DNA. A conservative estimate says that 100 to 300 mutations occur in human reproductive cells per individual / generation. Now, some numbers are as high as 1,000 new mutations per individual, per. generation. That’s a lot of mistakes! Now most people think that natural selection will get rid of these mutations. After all, isn’t that its job? It’s not quite that easy. You see, natural selection can only select against mutations that have a noticeable and significant effect, in the moment. If the mutation is neutral, or even if it’s harmful, but hasn’t causedeath or serious harm, natural selection won’t get rid of it, because it can’t see it. This leads to what’s known as ‘genetic entropy.’ This means that each generation carries all the mutations of previous generations, plus its own new mutations. With a high mutation rate genetic entropy is increasing quickly. Actually, it’s increasing so fast there is no way humans have been on the planet for millions of years, like evolution suggests. Our genetic code would be so burdened with mutations. We’d be such a mess that we’d be extinct. Our genetic code doesn’t look like it’s been mutating for even tens of thousands of years. Instead, it looks like it was incredibly well designed and has only been subject to the degrading influence of mutations for a short time. Now, what does this imply? It certainly fits with the biblical historical accounts that God created mankind about 6,000 years ago, with a perfect genome. It wasn’t until after sin entered the world that mutations began to corrupt our DNA, and there hasn’t been enough time since then to completely destroy our genome. Just one more scientific reason that you shouldn’t believe in human evolution. It takes a LOT of faith! I’m David Rives, truly the heavens declare the glory of God.
