Speciation Study Supports Creation, But Still No Evidence of Macro-Evolution
April 5, 2017
The article linked to the picture below is telling about how organisms change and how they can change rapidly. The article discusses documenting, "the evolution of a virus into two incipient species -- a process known as speciation that Charles Darwin proposed to explain the branching in the tree of life, where one species splits into two distinct species during evolution". This is the bait and switch technique that evolutionists often use. They show change in an organism that was caused by the changing of existing genetic information, but jump to the conclusion that this can cause microbes to man evolution, but this in no way explains how new functional complex genetic information is created and this is required by macro-evolution. What we observe better supports the Orchard of Life proposed by Creation rather then the tree of life proposed by evolution. The Orchard of Life says that God originally created the genomes of every Kind. Each of those Kinds then can speciate into different variations of the same Kind. Here is a visual representation of this concept.
The researcher goes on to say, "Even though we set out to study speciation in the lab, I was surprised it happened so fast". But rapid speciation wouldn't surprise a Creationist because that is what would be required to explain how so many species came to be after the Flood. Examples of rapid speciation and adaptation are being discovered all the time.
The researcher goes on to say, "With these experiments, no one can doubt whether speciation occurs". And no one aware of scientific fact has doubted speciation or adaptation. What is in serious doubt is the creation of new genetic information which drives new functionality and this is what is required for macro-evolution. The creation of new genetic information has never been observed.
Finally the researcher states, "The answer is as simple as the old expression, 'a jack of all trades is a master of none', the specialized viruses were much better at infecting through their preferred receptor and blocked their 'jack of all trades' ancestor from infecting cells and reproducing. The survival of the fittest led to the emergence of two new specialized viruses". We see that speciation creates a more specialized version of the virus. In other words, the genetic information is refined or effectively reduced by natural selection. Natural selection removes genetic information by killing of those organisms that aren't fit.
In summary, new species do not contain new genetic information, only changed versions of the original and this new species has reduced genetic diversity.
