Can New Information Arise In Genomes by Duplication and Mutation
Duplication duplicates the information that is already there. Mutation removes some information or makes it useless. Let's say that I give you a book that you already own. This is duplication. That gives you no new innovative genetic information of the type needed for even the smallest advance in so-called molecules-to-man evolution. Let's say that I give you a book that you already own and take a gun and shoot holes in it. This is duplication plus mutation. Has any new information been generated? No. (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.
Using an analogy of a train, Evolution hopes to go from Missouri in Central U.S. to California. However, the train is going the wrong direction toward New York, with each small change being the result of a loss of information or simply a rearrangement of what is already there.
The duplication and mutation argument 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. 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.
"Read John Sanford's book Genetic Entropy and the Mystery of the Genome and wonder how intelligent people could ever bring themselves to believe that mutations would create progress in fitness, and continue to believe natural selection built all the wonders of life, decades after it was demonstrated by evolution-believing secular population geneticists to be unworkable."(Source: CREV - read more)
Natural Selection works to eliminate severe mutations. The term, Natural Selection can mean different things depending on the context in which it is used, though. Some of those contexts actually try to transform Natural Selection into molecules-to-man Evolution. They also try to confuse people into believing that small adaptations (calling this micro-evolution, which is a deceiving term.) add up to molecules-to-man Evolution. At other times, Natural Selection is written about as if it were an intelligent all-powerful god that thinks things through and does them. But Natural Selection as a description of the way that severe mutations result in the death of the mutated life form is real. It can't add information and it appears that mutation never adds any information either. At least, no one has ever been able to observe information being added despite many tax dollars trying to do so. Most mutations aren't detrimental enough, however, for Natural Selection to operate. Small mutations can build up in a population over time and cause extinction. It is illegitimate to use Natural Selection to support Evolution. Natural Selection supports a young Earth and a Creator.
