As Dr Lee Spetner has pointed out in his book (above, right) and refutations of sceptics, no one has yet found a mutation that adds new complex coded heritable information to any organism. If mutations are really responsible for all the information added to a microbe to make a man, there should be plenty happening today that could be observed.[/i]
Spetner's nonsense has been thoroughly debunked, e.g. at Information Theory and Creationism: Spetner and Biological Information. But Spetner has also admitted that he was wrong. From The Nylon BUg:
"The short answer is, the mutation does yield an increase of information, but was it random?)"
He's reduced to an unsubstantiated assertion that the mutation was non-random with regard to fitness.
