Are Super-Germs an Example of Evolution In Action?
NO! They are a problem for Evolutionism.
Super-germs are not examples of adding order, Information, organization, an increase in complexity or improvement of function. Super-Germs are, in fact, examples of lost order, Information, organization, a decrease in complexity and degradation of function. This decrease in function has resulted in germs that are not affected by antibiotics, so this is an example of natural selection. However, natural selection is not Evolution. Super-Germs are not so super. Super-Germs have lost information. They have not added information. For Evolution, goo-to-you-by-way-of-the-zoo, to work, huge amounts of very complex and exacting information would need to be constantly added to the DNA by natural processes. But no information is ever added from everything that we know about science.
It must also be remembered that one example, if there were one, of random chance adding order, Information, organization, an increase in complexity or an improvement of function would only prove that evolution, though statistically improbable to the point of impossibility, may be theoretically possible. It would not prove that it happened. This is a major problem with Evolutionism, and is one of many reasons that Evolutionism is a religion based on an illogical hypothesis.
The nylon eating bacteria story-telling is an example of the religion of Evolutionism grasping at straws. Evolution is Just Story Telling. Here is one more example of intelligent scientists who look at proof against Evolutionism, but all they can see is Evolutionism. It is an example of mental filters. This line of irrationality displays the ability of presuppositions and mental paradigms to make intelligent people blind to the facts. It is a prime example of confirmation bias.
"Supergerms, in other words, are not an example of Evolution, but have been artificially bred by man, just as surely as Hereford cattle and Pomeranian dogs have been artificially bred by man. It was unintentional, but it was still artificial. The important varieties of supergerms, such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, have not come about through mutation, nor have any superbugs. Artificial selective breeding by humans is explanation enough-and even then we must remember that the germ still remains a germ. It has not evolved into something more complex." http://www.answersingenesis.org/creation/v11/i2/supergerms.asp
"Mutations, adaptation, variation, diversity, population shifts, etc., all occur, but, these are not macroevolutionary changes." http://www.icr.org/article/do-bacteria-evolve-resistance-antibiotics/
"The capability of bacteria to persevere in harsh environments, and especially through stressful times, was necessary not just for bacteria but for all other living things on the planet. However, since bacteria do not have the advantage of large, multicellular bodies to buffer environmental fluctuations, they have been outfitted with unique, "very fast effective" preservative mechanisms that are "very good at their job," as though they were purposefully planned and placed there. All life, either directly or indirectly, physically depends on bacteria. Fortunately, a wise Creator has outfitted them with stressosomes." http://www.icr.org/article/stressosomes-bacterias-ingenious-coping-mechanism/
Ungodly people are forced to hold on tightly to some basic presuppositions. These presuppositions 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. Naturalism claims that God does nothing. Materialism claims that there is no God or spiritual realm. Uniformitarianism claims that there was not creation and that there was no violent worldwide flood, as the Bible and numerous other historical accounts record. 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.
