|Meyer’s main argument for the inability of random|
mutation coupled with natural selection (hereafter,
“RM + NS”) to add information to DNA is based on
the research of Douglas Axe, a scientist currently
working at the Discovery Institute’s Biologic Institute.
Meyer claims that Axe’s work demonstrates
that proteins are rare in sequence space—and argues
therefore that functional proteins cannot be converted
to different functions through RM + NS due to the
intervening nonfunctional space between islands of
function. There are several reasons why Axe’s work
cannot be used as evidence for such an assertion.
Thanks very interesting...
I have one question regarding Lenskies experiments I have seen here:
Are the mutations discussed new function mutations?
Another thing did Lenski ever get round to finding the origin of the CIT+ mutation, was it epigenics or a two step indipendant mutation.
By the way finally ioseb admitted the following:
"As far as science is concerned, I consider it valid only and esclusively if it is not in contrast with the word of Jehova".
Guess that makes him very objective on what he calls science.
