The living cell provides our
greatest example of intelligent design. Within its confines resides
a molecular machinery largely beyond our comprehension. The complexity
of the cell may very well exceed that of the universe outside
of our world, and yet there are those who can believe it simply
formed through random processes .
The scientific community has
become largely atheistic and generally
assumes that cells
formed without God
or intelligent design. Therefore existing genetic theories have been developed
by those who do not believe the cell was designed, and are not looking for
mechanisms that were made to intentionally produce the genetic changes
which allow organisms to adapt. Secular science believes that evolution is largely
the result of biochemical accidents. Although geneticists and breeders
have thoroughly established that genetic
recombination is responsible for the variations of plant and animal breeds, we are still
taught that random mutations produced the natural varieties of species
such as the finches on the Galapagos islands. This contrast between fact
and teachings is the result of atheistic theoretic necessity,
which must propose that random reactions unreliant
upon living systems are responsible for evolution.
Mutations or Genetic Recombination?
There are two sources of genetic variability; genetic recombination and mutation.
Mutations are random, unintentional nucleotide alterations that can occur
in many ways, such as by errors during replication, or by exposure to
chemical mutagens. Genetic recombination, on the otherhand, is performed
intentionally by cellular machinery and its products remains largely uncharacterized. Both
mutation and recombination can modify genes, but we are being incorrectly taught that mutation
is the primary source of variability driving evolution.
Little is known about recombination, except that reactions
occur between chromosomes, which alter the genome of each daughter cell so
no two offspring are ever identical. Given our level of understanding, we
can not yet place a limitation on their ability to manipulate DNA. It is
clear the genetic constitution of organisms is not static,
and the cell's molecular machinery is altering genes and creating
new alleles with each passing generation. The purpose of these
reactions is clear. They occur so that organisms would be able
to adapt physically and biochemically, and thereby occupy earth's
broad range of habitats.
been recognized for decades that the differences found among
offspring from the same parents were the result of recombination
events during meiosis. Domestic breeds, for example, are recombinants, not
mutants. These rearrangements are being performed by design to provide
evolutionary potential to all organisms. Contrary to popular beliefs,
evolution through recombination is not random, but is instead highly
systematic. In comparison, mutations are random destructive changes that
destroy information. Mutations are most
typically deleterious, disruptive to genome function, and corrected
by the cell when detected. Evolution truly occurs through a history of
genetic recombination and natural selection, but the way it is taught, you would never know
anything but mutation was involved.
to what evolutionists teach, adaptation is the result of systematic and
cellular reactions. However, in
contrast to typical creationist perceptions, this change is
to the variability originally possessed by the organism. God created a cellular
machinery that is performing a level of self genetic engineering. This process is
creating new information
and able to modify organisms so dramatically we can frequently not
recognize them as related. The physical manifestations of these reactions
is hard to predict, and it is also quite possible that genetic editions are
being made in
direct response to environmental demands.
