Mutational Buildup Indicates Living Populations Are Young

... are copy errors that degrade the information contained in DNA, which carries vital instructions for the maintenance and reproduction of cellular life. All creatures experience mutations. Very rarely, a mutational error can help some...
The Natural Direction of Life Is Degeneration, Not Evolution
mutation
... in the genomes of organisms are typically nearly neutral, with little effect on the fitness of the organism. However, the accumulation of deleterious (harmful) mutations does occur and the accumulation of these mutations leads to...
Silent Mutations Cripple Viruses - Article
/article/silent-mutations-cripple-viruses
Brian Thomas, M.S. - ... “break down” or weaken a virus? They add mutations. Mutations are those rare errors that accumulate as DNA is copied. “Silent” mutations have no major visible effect because they do not result in a change in...
How Old Is Life? - Article
/article/how-old-life
John D. Morris, Ph.D. - ... similar genetic codes. In this process of code reproduction, mutations may alter the coded content somewhat, so that the detailed instructions vary a little, leading to evolutionary change. Efforts are underway to push life's origin back into...
ICR GENE Project - Article

Larry Vardiman, Ph.D. - ... in the human genome at creation, has changed with time. Mutations (sudden variations in some hereditary characteristic) have been shown to accumulate from one generation to the next. Mutations invariably lead to changes in characteristics and...
Mutation Study Contradicts Evolution - Article
/article/mutation-study-contradicts-evolution
Brian Thomas, M.S. - ... textbooks teach that mutations added the high-quality genetic information needed to transmutate a fish into a monkey—even though experiments have shown that mutations merely corrupt the information that is already present. In a new...
More Mutations Mean More Diseases, Less Evolution - Article
/article/mutations-mean-more-diseases-less-evolution
Brian Thomas, M.S. - ... notion that humans evolve by natural selection of beneficial mutations. One recent study used next-generation techniques to compare the detailed sequences of 202 genes in 14,002 people.1 They discovered that many people have rare, individual...
Human Stem Cells Cure Mutated Mice - Article
/article/human-stem-cells-cure-mutated-mice
Brian Thomas, M.S. - ... are intelligently designing techniques to combat mutations that cause neurological disorders. If evolution works according to the standard neo-Darwinian model of time + selection + mutation, then why are we interfering with the process?...
Gene Mutation Makes Tot Stronger - Article
/article/gene-mutation-makes-tot-stronger
Frank Sherwin, M.A. - ... mutations are random relative to need and because organisms generally fit well into their environments, mutations normally are either neutral or harmful; only very rarely are they helpful—just as a random change made by poking a...
Cancer Research Inadvertently Refutes Evolution - Article
/article/cancer-research-inadvertently-refutes
Brian Thomas, M.S. - ... Textbook explanations invoke natural selection of beneficial mutations across unimaginable time, with a bit of help from “junk DNA” and heaps of serendipitous chance. Though it was not intended as a test of evolution, a new cancer...
