Q: Why do mutations pose a problem for evolutionists?

The mutations that we see in the world around us involve a loss of genetic information, not a gain. Mutations could never cause a species to gain genetic information and change into a more advanced species. This poses a problem for evolutionary claims that humans evolved from apes.
Mutations often pose problems for humans, in the form of birth defects. Some evolutionists claim that birth defects are the "trial and error" of evolution, and eventually this could create a new species or sub-species of human.
The reality is that the vast majority of mutations are detrimental (to some degree), and, thus, the genome of the human population is degrading. For more information regarding this, please see Dr. Georgia Purdom's recent article entitled Making the Evolution Pill Easier to Swallow, Part 2.

The next session of our online education courses begins soon and registration is open until November 23. Foundations in Creation Apologetics is a 12-week course designed to equip you to defend your faith in an evolution-dominated world that is increasingly hostile to Christianity. Each weekly lesson is designed so that you can work at your own pace, so it is ideal for both students and working people. The lessons focus on helping you understand the issues involved and how to use the information you learn to share your faith with others. As a student, you will be involved in reading articles, watching videos, discussing ideas with classmates and instructors, and applying what you have learned in the assessments.
Want to learn more about how the Bible is confirmed by archaeology, science, and everything we see around us? Join us for a 6-week study in Creation Apologetics and the Bible. You will explore how we arrive at the age of the earth, the historical accuracy of the biblical record, the authority of Scripture, and more. Interact with other students from around the world and strengthen your faith as you dive deep into God's Word in this course.
