Is Sickle-Cell Anemia an Example of Evolution in the Present Day?
Sickle-cell anemia is a defect that is passed from generation to generation. It is an example of Natural Selection, but Natural Selection is, in no way, Evolution. It is illegitimate to use Natural Selection to support Evolution. Natural Selection supports a young Earth and a Creator. Sickle-cell anemia is proof of the Second Law of Thermodynamics. It is a "downward" change, degradation, but Evolutionism would require "upward" change. The fact that it provides some resistance to malaria does not make it an "upward" change. Information and organization has not been added, but, typical of the Second Law of Thermodynamics, information and organization have been lost. There has been no increase in complexity or improvement of function, but the opposite is, in fact, the case.
(Read the latest science on the subject: Without Excuse by Werner Gitt, a description of the scientific Laws of Universal Information. See also: Information Theory Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4. Here is another interesting article.) More is constantly being learned about information and about the Second Law of Thermodynamics. Evolutionists tend to hide in the weeds of the unknown with an argument from ignorance: "If you can't prove, by empirical science, that evolution is impossible, then it happened." By empirical science alone, we can only prove probabilities. The probabilities show the Big-Bang-Billions-of-Years-No-Flood-Molecules-to-Man story to be a bazaar hypothesis, a story that is so improbable that it should not be considered. However, empirical science is not a tool that can prove anything to be true or false absolutely. For absolute proof, we have revelation. (See Basic and Concise Guide to Practical, Useful Logic and Reasoning). God says that He created everything. He is the One Who enforces the laws of nature. He is the One Who will judge all of us in the end. We know that because we know Him presonally through the indwelling Presence of Jesus Christ and the moment-by-moment instruction of the Holy Spirit.
The Evolutionists will tell you a half truth about the Second Law of Thermodynamics. The Evolutionists will tell the half truth: "The Second Law of Thermodynamics only applies to isolated systems, so it's not relevant to evolution, because the Earth is an open system." This is a clever lie. Here is the part of the truth that they are withholding: the Second Law of Thermodynamics was derived using theoretical isolated systems, but it applies to all systems, and can only be overcome locally and temporarily in open systems when stringent conditions are met. Not only that, but we are not talking about the Earth. The Earth is just a subsystem of a much larger system called the Universe. The Universe is an isolated system. Evolutionists claim that Evolution took place in this isolated system, but the Second Law of Thermodynamics tells us that their story is a myth.
Evolution also has a very real information problem. For evolution to be a viable story, something one might say is possible, we would need to observe information being created in cells. This would have to be new information, innovative information, and it would need to be added quite often. Not only that, but the cell would need additional meta-information to tell it how to use the new information. Someone who wants to believe in evolution will believe in evolution regardless of the evidence.
Sickle-cell anemia is an example of the religion of Evolutionism grasping at straws. It is an example of intelligent scientists who look at proof against Evolutionism, but all they can see is Evolutionism. It is an example of mental filters. Sickle-cell anemia displays the ability of presuppositions and mental paradigms to make intelligent people blind to the facts. It is a prime example of confirmation bias.
Unfortunately, the Religion of Evolutionism is publicly supported so they have lots of money and keep spinning story after story. A hefty percentage of them are even more silly than this one. And, when one story is answered and exposed, there are a dozen other fables to replace it. Not only that, but the Evolutionists even recycle the debunked tales of the past.
Some people live their lives according to presuppositions, which are just simple-minded assumptions. They are filters and a way to censor out any information that supports the existence of God. They set up a web of rules to filter out God. They will only accept those things that conform to Naturalism, materialism, and uniformitarianism.
Whatever they observe that does not conform to this complex filter is censored. The way that it is censored can take several forms. The ungodly may boldly proclaim that, though the data appears to support God's version and refute the version of the ungodly, yet it still must be interpreted to mean just the opposite of what it does mean. A backup method that ungodly people use is to prophecy that in the future, science will be able to explain what they see as an anomaly. If that fails, they will hide the data, set it aside, or lie to keep the public from knowing the truth. The data clearly demolishes the story of the ungodly and clearly supports the reality of the Creator God, His Bible, and His abiding Presence in His people. When confronted with the obvious, a closed-minded ungodly person says, "I can't understand it." They are willingly ignorant because they refuse to hold God in their knowledge. The reality is that these people, for whatever reason, don't what to know the Creator. They don't want to truly know Jesus, their Creator.
