Where Did the Genetic Information Come From? | thebereancall.org

So where did all the genetic information in our DNA—a complex language system—come from? That’s something evolutionary ideas have never been able to explain. But evolution requires the addition of massive amounts of brand-new genetic information in order for a single-celled organism to evolve into a human over billions of years. But no such naturalistic process has ever been observed.

The observational evidence doesn’t confirm evolutionary ideas. The evidence is only explained within a creation worldview based on God’s Word beginning in Genesis. In the biblical view, God created organisms according to their kinds with maximum genetic diversity to start with. So each kind will always reproduce within its kind and never between kinds (which is what we observe). There will be a lot of variety and diversity within a kind because of the incredible amount of created genetic diversity God gave each kind at the very beginning, but one kind never changes into another kind.

Natural selection, adaptation, mutations—all of these observable processes make sense and are easily explained with a biblical view of creation and the fall. But in an evolutionary view, there’s no mechanism to produce the genetic information needed. As always, the observational evidence confirms the history in God’s Word, not evolutionary ideas. Molecules-to-man naturalistic evolution is impossible and never happened . . . and never will!
