“Oh that my words were now written! oh that they were printed in a book!”
Evolutionists assume that evolution happens by increases in genetic information. This, they claim, happens by mutations making more information. We should analyze how this might happen.
It has often been said that the creation of information in organisms would be like having an explosion in a print factory producing a dictionary. However, the evolutionist argues that this is an unfair analogy because evolution is supposed to happen one step at a time, not by explosions. So how would a single step work?
One well-known evolutionist in England appeared on a children’s program with a bag of Scrabble letters to show how it would work. He got children to take a letter tile each from the bag. Eventually, three consecutive children drew C-A-T. “Aha!” he exclaimed. “We have a word – cat. Information has come about by chance.”
However, the letters CAT only spell a word in English. In French, the same word would have to be CHAT. The word CAT does not exist in French. So CAT only contains information if you already have the language ability to read it and understand it.
Similarly, DNA information has to be “read” by RNA molecules. So this information does not happen by chance. Even if new information were possible, it would only work if an organism had a pre-existing method of decoding that information. Information does not come from nowhere. It always comes from somewhere – or rather, Someone.
Prayer: Thank You, Lord, that You knit me together in my mother’s womb. Everything I have is from You. Amen.
