Mutations are Bad and They are Building Up in the Genome. It's Not Faith, It Is Fact.
November 17, 2016
The below article is great research. It is the kind of research that will one day topple the religion of Macro Evolution. This article states, "By carefully screening letter by letter in the 1.1 billion letter genetic code of each individual they searched for new genetic variants. These represent mutations arisen in the germ cells of parents". The article goes on to state, "Based on the occurrence of mutations in the family the team could estimate the rate at which new mutations arise to one per 100 million letter per generation". What this means is that each generation has 11 more mutations than the previous.
The articles continues, "One would think that mutations occur to ensure that there will be evolution -- without them new life forms cannot evolve and all species would eventually become extinct. However, natural selection operates on the level of individuals and there is no benefit for individuals to mutate just because it might be good for the species to have genetic variation in the future. On the contrary, there is typically a cost associated with mutations: most mutations that affect the fitness of offspring are more or less deleterious. Theory therefore suggests that parents should avoid as much as possible to provide their offspring with new mutations. Ideally, the rate of mutation should be zero"
So what this article is saying is that natural selection can't see the mutations so it can't eliminate them. Which is one of the big reasons why macro evolution could never work. Natural Selection isn't intelligent. It can't look into the genome to see that mutations are building some sort of new gene. In addition, this article points out what all science proves - mutations are overwhelmingly bad. In fact, the article states that ideally the mutation rate should be ZERO!! So the very mechanism that drives macro evolution should be ZERO?!?! Macro Evolution just doesn't make any sense.
This mutation rate in humans is about 60 to 100 new mutations for the next generation. In other words, a person's child has about 60 to 100 more mutations than they do. Organisms with smaller genomes typically have lower mutation rates from what I have read. The reasons that I understand is first larger genomes simply have more DNA that is available to mutate, but also that those organisms with smaller genomes are more susceptible to the ill effects of mutations as there is more of a chance of the mutation effecting the viability of the organism. Natural Selection can in effect "see" their mutations more often.
