Q: How is a carnivorous plant evidence against evolution?

A: Multicellular organisms' genomes typically contain a great deal of non-coding DNA  (often called "junk" DNA, implying that it has little function), but not the carnivorous bladderwort. Some evolutionists have assumed that "junk" DNA is essentially "leftovers" from the evolutionary process as organisms evolved from one kind of organism into another.
Non-coding DNA doesn't code for specific proteins but may have regulatory or other important functions. Molecular geneticist Dr. Georgia Purdom of Answers in Genesis, commenting on the discovery and its interpretation, said:
The observable science shows that the bladderwort plant needs very little non-coding DNA to function. Everything else claimed by the evolutionists studying bladderwort is merely assumptions about the unobservable past based on man's ideas instead of God's Word.

This DVD by Dr. Georgia Purdom will explore the fascinating world of DNA and clearly show that "junk" DNA isn't junk and that mutations and natural selection are headed in the wrong direction, corrupting and decreasing information in DNA making evolution impossible. The origin of such diversity and variability could only be the God of the Bible!

News to Know

BSA and Gay: Phase One: The Boy Scouts of America leadership council voted this week to allow openly homosexual boys to join and participate as scouts. But this is only the beginning of the demands of homosexual activists. Now the second phase of their agenda can begin: accepting gay leaders.
Today's question was also a News to Know item. In case you missed it, this week we also featured the following News to Know item:
Dinosaur Stampede 2.0: Earlier this month, BBC News Magazine presented an article questioning the accepted interpretation of a fossil record of a dinosaur stampede. Almost 4,000 individual tracks from about 180 dinosaurs were preserved in sandstone. How were they formed? How do they relate to the Flood?
