I’m researching Evolution for my book, which is a lot harder than the rest has been. Life and the rules for why creatures look and behave the way they do is mind-bogglingly complicated! Added to that, explanation about how life started and developed is at the core of the battle for our minds and hearts.
In the past I’ve wrestled with issues like, “are we all just a bunch of mutants, or did God design variation into our DNA?” But it’s been hard to find solid answers.
Today I ran into a paper from the Journal of Creation which is powerful and answers a lot of my questions. It’s quite long and fairly complicated, but not so eye-crossing as to be worthless to a non-scientist.
I’m posting the link here and will add this article to my For Teens page because if you really get what Dr. Robert W. Carter is saying, you will understand how biologists can accept God as Creator! You will also have a better grasp of genetics than the vast majority of people.
Can mutations create new information?
I will praise you; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are your works; and that my soul knows right well. My substance was not hid from you, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, yet being unperfect; and in your book all my members were written, which in their day were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. How precious also are your thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! Psalm 139:14-17
