Four point two bad mutations each generation are added on average to the human race, according to the Courier Mail Australia, 29 Jan 1999 p.12. Scientists are rightly worried about this increasing degenerative load on man’s DNA. Such mutations also provide an indirect but fascinating comment on how long man has been on the planet. If we have been evolving from ape-like creatures for 3 million years we should have accumulated enough mutations to be extinct. Mutations change the information in our genes, which are the instructions for building our bodies. Just as errors in a computer program make the computer malfunction – mutations make the body malfunction. Evolutionists claim mutations built better bodies, but a century of research has shown mutations destroy genetic information. (Ref: mutation, age, genetic load)
