Mutations – ”Marvellous Mistakes” – At Least According to Melbourne Museum

This text has several factual mistakes that will hardly improve it.

Joel Kontinen

Mutations are marvellous mistakes, at least according to the Melbourne Museum. Without mutations there would be no evolution and since living things change some mutations have to be beneficial – at least according to the Darwinian story.

The problem for evolutionists is that the scientific literature does not know of a single unambiguously beneficial mutation (the mutation that protects against malaria but causes sickle cell anemia is probably the best candidate.)

Thus, Darwinists have to resort to wishful thinking and storytellling and believe that during the assumed millions of years tens of thousands of mutations were beneficial and promoted evolution.

However, wishful thinking and storytelling have little if anything to do with real science.
