Mutations Can Create Beneficial Traits, But It's Not Macro Evolution!
January 31, 2017
The below article talks about the naked mole rat. It has a unique trait that provides it a benefit - a resistance to pain. This article discusses how the TrkA receptor has been altered in the mole rat. The gene that plays a part in building this receptor has a mutation, which gives this ability. This is a change to existing genetic information that is degrading the gene function, but it just happens to produce a beneficial trait. If you critically evaluate examples of "evolution" this type of change to existing genetic information is typically what you will find.
This is not macro evolution because it requires the creation of new genetic information through random mutations.
