Why Sequence Your Genome? Hint: It's Not to Find New Mutant Powers
May 12, 2017
I was watching the original X-Men Movie the other day and Professor X was speaking of how mutants had evolved the Mutant X Gene, which gave mutants their amazing new powers. I found it odd that the theory of microbes to man evolution is advocating exactly what Professor X was stating. That mutations can create new genes and new amazing abilities. This goes to show that microbes to man evolution is a thing of make believe and fairy tales. Let's instead turn our attention to reality and science fact and see why healthcare professionals are interested in sequencing your genome.
The below linked article touches on how cheaper and cheaper genome sequencing will allow patients to have their genome stored in electronic medical records. This will allow physicians to look at what mutations they have. Are they looking for people who have the ability to control metal or some other amazing ability? NO! They are looking for mutations that hurt us! Because everyone knows that mutations are not good. They primarily degrade and destroy our genomes causing us many many problems.
The article states, "Many single-gene disorders like familial hypercholesterolemia [FH] are under-diagnosed, once an individual with a single-gene disorder is identified, not only can that person be placed on appropriate medical intervention, but we can also screen his or her extended family members to see who else carries the mutant gene and may benefit from preventative approaches." The article goes on to state, :"a recent list of 59 "medically actionable" genes, curated by the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG), in which loss of function mutations can lead to specific medical interventions. For example, individuals from the extended family of a person found to have FH who also carry the mutation should have their cholesterol checked and be placed on medication to reduce cholesterol."Identifying rare variants can also contribute to our understanding of more common, complex disorders such as Type 2 diabetes or chronic kidney disease".
While I enjoy the fantasy of X-Men, I don't forget about the truth, which is that mutations destroy and degrade the human genome. Observation fact tells us that the human genome was created perfect in the beginning and we are devolving, not evolving. This is exactly what the Bible tells us in Genesis. Don't believe me, read it for yourself. It goes to show that the Bible can be trusted in everything that it says.
