This quote gives yet another reason the stories of evolutionism don’t work. The fact that they don’t work doesn’t prove the Bible is true. We know the Bible is true because God says the Bible is true. God speaks to us and faith comes. Faith is the evidence of things we can’t observe like the distant past.
<quote from Real Faith & Reason, vol 2>
The problem is even more complicated. Evolutionists make up many stories about how generational changes could lead to the amoeba-to-humanity story. Some evolutionists claim gene duplication plus mutation did the work. They may not know they would have to create new coded information systems. They often don’t even bother to address the issue of coded information systems. They just act as if coded information systems popped into existence repeatedly for millions of years. They avoid talking about coded information systems or try to muddy the issue. No one has ever observed new coded information systems forming. Instead of talking about the coded information systems in specific ways, they talk about information in a vague way. That way they can call anything information. They sometimes try to claim no one understands what information is.
What is a coded information system? What is coded information? Coded information isn’t a property of matter. If you write your name on a piece of paper with a graphite pencil, the information isn’t the graphite or the paper. The graphite and paper carry the information, but your name is the information. You could have written your name on a rock with paint, and the information would be the same.
However, coded information isn’t enough to create a new function in a living plant or animal. Functions don’t just happen. For instance, the way you can move your eyebrows didn’t just happen. Several functions control your eyebrows. Each of those functions needs a coded information system. Each system has parts. The parts work together. Information is one part. That’s not enough. Something has to check to make sure information isn’t damaged. Something has to repair damaged information. You can find out about coded information systems by searching for the term on Creation.com.
Coded information systems are complex, interdependent structures. Competent scientists have defined them explicitly. Evolutionists make up stories about information forming by natural processes. However, they rarely mention coded information systems. Systems we observe in living plants and animals could never form by natural processes.
Scientists do observe living cells with tremendous amounts of variability pre-programmed in. Mutations sometimes lose coded information systems or parts of those systems. However, they don’t add new coded information systems.
We haven’t observed anything that could result in a simple organism adding a single new coded information system. The story of evolutionism claims natural occurrences in nature created all the variations, designs, and complexities of life we see around us. In other words, we can’t see any machine or method in cells that would cause the supposed events of molecules-to-humanity evolution. On the contrary, the stories all fall short of explaining what we can observe. As a result, no model of evolutionism works. And yet, evolutionists tell the stories convincingly, so students believe the stories. They don’t call these stories “stories” but give them other names that sound more real. Then students dogmatically defend the stories because their teachers have deceived them and sold the made-up stuff to them.
But theories aren’t part of reality, and theories don’t become part of reality, nor do theories become facts in a real sense. Even with the loose scientific definition of the term “scientific fact,” theories don’t become scientific facts.
Facts and theories are two different things. ~ Alina Bradford, What Is a Scientific Theory?
On the contrary, only observations repeatedly confirmed become known as “scientific facts,” and since we can’t observe a speculative explanation, theories can’t become scientific facts without redefining the term “scientific fact.” Scientists and social engineers are working on redefining this term in an attempt to confuse the issue; however, redefining terms doesn’t change reality.
