|Natural Selection Has No Method for Adding New Information|
This page is provided to answer a specific question, but don't get tied up in detail and forget where you are going. You get past the questions/attacks so you can proclaim the Gospel. It is the proclamation of the Gospel, not argumentation, that transforms minds. See Give Them the Gospel.
The most important thing to remember is that evolution is merely a creative story (about scientific observations) that was fabricated to fit 3 unproven assumptions. God tells us differently by revelation. Evolution is a fabricated story based on the assumptions of naturalism (God does nothing), materialism (God doesn't exist), and uniformitarianism (there was no catastrophic worldwide flood). These assumptions are arbitrary, though carefully and formally rationalized by evolutionists. Everyone rationalizes their assumptions but the assumptions are still arbitrary and thus not part of sound reasoning. These three assumptions are then used to prove themselves using circular reasoning. However, God speaks. He confirms to us that the Bible is His Utterance and that He speaks to us through the Bible. There are no assumptions that are necessary and there is no circular reasoning that is necessary. If pressed, a knowledgeable ungodly person will finally admit that these assumptions have no proof, but they will still hold them dogmatically and insist that they are not arbitrary because they are rationalized (a reason is given that sounds rational when it is, in fact, irrational).
The next most important thing to remember about the story of "Natural Selection" (should be Natural Elimination because that's all it does) is that the fairytale has no means of adding new innovative genetic information of the type needed for even the smallest advance in so-called molecules-to-man evolution. New innovative genetic information of the type needed for even the smallest advance in so-called molecules-to-man evolution would be needed if we are to accept the idea of molecules to man Evolution. Without the addition of new information, the whole idea of Evolutionism is dead. Since random mutations do not add information to anything, there is no other way that new information could be added. Adaptation uses information that is already in the genetic code, so no new information is added. We now know that most mutations are nearly neutral, but that they accumulate to become problematic. Mutations lose genetic information, and much of this loss is through errors in the genetic code. The so-called beneficial mutations are also losses to the information contained in the genetic code. No new information is added.
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 evolution train’s a-comin’
The following chart makes it plain that every instance of supposed increase of information that is used by Evolution's evangelists is an example of NO increase in information. Evolutionist's claims for adding information fall into three categories. These are the 3 Rs of Evolution: Rearrange information, Remove information, and Ruin information. See: The 3 Rs of evolution
Without a mechanism for adding new innovative genetic information of the type needed for even the smallest advance in so-called molecules-to-man evolution, there is no mechanism for molecules to man evolution. Information would need to be added. There is no working hypothesis that describes how natural process could possibly add information. Rigged computer simulations are not proof, since they build in an ability to recognize and lock in a correct answer when stringing together a sequence of numbers and trying to attain a goal. If there were such a thing as molecules to man Evolution, there would be no such rigging, goal-orientedness, mechanism to recognize those things that would be a step in attaining the goal, or any way to selectively remember those numbers that "hit" while compiling the list of numbers. The correct simulation would be to randomly generate characters without any tricky things to remember any sensible combinations, let the same process that creates also destroy just as it does in nature, and then see if the computer spits out the library of congress. No Atheist or Evolutionist will run the test because they know that the test will fail.
In fact, we know when something is designed and when it has come to be from natural processes. In the case of very complex circuitry, programming, robotics, and interrelated mechanisms that are interdependent and cannot function as well without the aid of the other parts, we can always know that those things have required a plan, a builder, and that they contain a lot of information. The most simple cell is complex beyond your imagination. We have discovered some of the basics and the result is that we are amazed. Such a thing could never happen by chance. This would be impossible. Using the tools of science, we observe that no new innovative genetic information of the type needed for even the smallest advance in so-called molecules-to-man evolution is ever added to anything, not even a cell, by natural processes. That eliminates the chance for evolution.
An article in Scientific American claims but then, way down in the article, it talks about: "the fact that many genes do their primary job of coding for a particular protein very well, but also have a weak secondary function that may become important under certain environmental stressors" In other words, the information was always there. No new innovative genetic information of the type needed for even the smallest advance in so-called molecules-to-man evolution developed. Then, the article goes on to claim that evolution took place and to call this a mutation rather than admitting fully that the gene has the ability built in by God to do the function. This is just one more examples of evolutionism's futile attempt to find some way that evolution could have possibly taken place. Keep in mind the fact that God tells us that He created kinds, families, of animals and that those kinds reproduce according to their kinds. Though scientific method has yet to show that there is some sort of a mysterious law that overcomes the Second Law of Thermodynamics to create new information by natural processes, even if such a thing were possible, it would not mean that it happened that way. It happened the way that God said that it happened. (Read More Here)
However, it now appears that every living thing has the ability to adapt. The fossils that have been found are ample evidence that this variation has very strict limits. There is a wonderful ability to adapt, but only within limits.
