|Is a short hair dog producing a long hair dog proof of Darwinian evolution?
|It proves that we need to clearly define the term evolution. From a biological standpoint, let’s focus on micro evolution, macro evolution and genetic information. Micro is simply an adaptation (variation) within the same kind of plant or animal. The genetic information for the adaptation was already present in the existing gene pool. This is vital to understand.
You could take a male and female dog (mutts work the best due to their wide gene pool) and selectively breed dogs for 20 years. By the end, you would likely have 100 very different dogs, but they would still be dogs. Although there may be huge variations, dogs producing dogs are simply micro changes. Micro always ends up with the same kind that was started with. It is important to understand that micro adaptations result from the sorting or loss of pre-existing genetic information. This is a scientific principle know as Gene Depletion. Micro adaptations are a scientific fact which we should expect since ten times in Genesis we are told that plants or animals will “bring forth after their kind”. Micro is both Biblical and Scientific.
Macro evolution is Darwinian or Neo-Darwinian evolution, one kind changing into another kind. For example a dog producing a non-dog, like a cat or a mouse or a pumpkin. Never has an example of Darwinian-Macro evolution ever been observed. In fact, the DNA Code Barrier states that one kind can’t produce a different kind. The genetic information for the change of one kind, let’s say a dog, to become a different kind, let’s say a rabbit, is not in the dog’s gene pool and science knows of no way for nature to add appreciable amounts of new, beneficial, genetic data to a gene pool. Macro evolution is both unobserved and against true science. Yet macro is taught as fact in schools and micro adaptations are shown to convince kids that there is proof. This is of course pure fraud, yet has successfully fooled millions of people.
