Intellectual Disability (ID) - Previously Known as Mental Retardation - What is the cause?
November 7, 2016
You should already know what the cause is, at least for 50% of those who suffer from the condition. The cause is genetic mutations. The below article documents researchers documenting the cause it it states, "While about half of all ID cases can be linked to environmental causes like poor nutrition, unknown genetic factors, such as gene mutations, are responsible for the remaining 50 percent".
So more observable science that shows genetic mutations destroy and degrade the genome. The exact opposite of what macro evolution would have us believe, which would be that mutations are the engine that creates new functional genetic information. The Bible warns us to not let lies separate us from the knowledge of God. Unfortunately, many have fallen victim to the lies of macro evolution and as a result have rejected the ultimate truth. When one critically examines the observable science, you see that mutations don't create genetic information, they destroy it. From this, one can conclude that in the beginning our genomes were perfect and have been in a state of decline ever since mutations took hold. Mutations took hold when we rejected God. As Romans 8:22 states, "We know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until the present time".
