In yet another example that genetic mutations are clearly harmful, researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital successfully identified two new genetic mutations that may increase the chances of people developing late-onset Alzheimer’s disease, according to a report published on Saturday by UPI.com.
Evolutionists insist that thousands of species, over the course of billions of years, underwent countless positive genetic mutations that allowed them to adapt, evolve (genetically), and survive. However, this latest discovery of Alzheimer’s disease would seem to refute such a claim. Genetic mutations are harmful.
The research, which was originally published on Neuron Magazine, mentions the following:
“This is the first report to document, in animal models, new [disease-causing] gene mutations for Alzheimer’s since the reports of the original four genes in the 1990s.”
How harmful are these newly-discovered genetic mutations?
As UPI explains, these mutations slow down, or reduce the “amount of new nerve cells in the hippocampus. The hippocampus is the part of the brain which is essential to learning and memory. This is just another of the countless examples of the harm that genetic mutations cause.
The following is a very brief list of examples of other genetic mutations:
– Angelman Syndrome
– Celiac Disease
– Canavan Disease
– Down Syndrome
– Cystic Fibrosis
– Muscular Dystrophy
– Sickle Cell Disease
– Turner Syndrome
This list, of course, is much, much longer; too many to list. Strangely, although evolutionists claim that thousands of species, including mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds, and all others, have experienced millions – if not billions – of beneficial genetic mutations, no such exhaustive list can be found anywhere.
The following list, for example, Examples of Beneficial Mutations and Natural Selection, seems rather lacking. None of the “evidences” set forth present any realistic, human or animal-linked, visible, measurable, testable, beneficial genetic mutations.
As one of the examples of “beneficial genetic mutation”, they list “Fitness responses of e-coli to changes in its thermal environment”. The environmental “changes” which allegedly caused the “beneficial” genetic mutations, were very slight temperature variations, from 32 C, to 37 C, and 42 C. The claim? That after 2000 generations, the e-coli cultured at 42 C was 20 percent “more fit” than the ancestor population. This is evidence of “beneficial genetic mutation”?
Empirical evidence, on the other hand, of the harm caused by genetic mutations (as exemplified in the brief list above) is clearly seen, daily, in the lives of human beings and animals, through countless diseases, deformities, and death.
It would seem that the verifiable evidence is clearly not on the side of proponents of evolution.
