DNA Mutations Do Not Occur Randomly – Discovery Transforms Our View of Evolution

Beating the Odds in Mutation’s Game of Chance

Discovery that plants protect their most essential genes transforms our view of evolution.

Mutations of DNA do not occur as randomly as previously assumed, according to new research from Max Planck Institute for Biology Tübingen in Germany and University of California Davis in the US. The findings have the potential to dramatically change our view of evolution. The insights have far-reaching implications, from better knowledge of crop domestication to predictions of the mutational landscape in cancers.

The Role of the Decay Constant

Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

(Genesis 3:16) KJV

If the theory of evolution is the centerpiece of the popular science narrative of godless existence (SciPop), then radiometric dating has been the pseudoscientific glue that held it together.

The New “Scientific Knowledge”

May 18

Even the sea monsters draw out the breast, they give suck to their young ones: the daughter of my people is become cruel, like the ostriches in the wilderness.

(Lamentations 4:3) KJV

A new definition of “scientific knowledge” is necessary for the post-Hawking popular science (SciPop) Trekkie generation.

“Anecdotal evidence combined with probability means its a reasonable assumption.”

I Am, Therefore I Think

And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.

So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

(Genesis 11:1-2, 8-9) KJV

Devolution and genetic decay are analogous to the story of the tower of Babel (Genesis 11). After the great flood, the growing population stayed together in the city of Babel. They all spoke the same language at this time.

Deducing Life in Zero-G

For inquire, please, of the former age, And consider the things discovered by their fathers; For we were born yesterday, and know nothing,
Because our days on earth are a shadow.

(Job 8:8-9) NKJV

The creation of gravity is one thing, but how do we deduce that life began before it? There are several clues. One involves the scriptural metaphor that milk has to come before solid food.

The Truth isn’t in Chaos

Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

(Matthew 7:24-27) KJV

There’s no chaos through the ages. We have about 6,000 years of human history. Not just human history though, all history. Geological history has taken place within the same 6,000 years.

Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

(Luke 12:27) NKJV

The classification of plants animals and minerals is called taxonomy or systematics. Our scientific background is plant systematics. The modern age of systematics is based on comparing DNA sequences.
