You're still operating under the assumption that all mutations are bad. Mutations can be good, bad, or neutral. ERV's have been shown to have function. Ergo our prediction is correct and yours is falsified.<quoted text>
I didn't get my information from a website. I have over 30 years experience working in a laboratory where I practice science with actual accountability. Mutations cause corruption of DNA, resulting in non-viability, an impaired immune system, cancer and many other disease states. This is common knowledge. The problem is, non of your esteemed professors of evolutionary biology have any accountability...hence, they freely abandon standards of science in their quest to justify their religion.
You believe in dogma that has no scientific basis. Even your beloved E.Coli experiment, after 50,000 generations, resulted in a weakened strain. Do you know what happens to antibiotic-resistant bacteria in an environment without antibiotics? They are less competitive than their unmutated counterparts. Their antibiotic resistance results from a LOSS of genetic information. What about chromosomal duplication...like trisomy 18 and Down's syndrome?
And your poster child of evolution...sickle cell anemia. You site a mutation resulting in a life threatening illness as evidence that mutations can create finely balanced sensory organs...
Dogen, if you want to believe in your fairytales about bacteria evolving into worms and peacocks and humans, that is your choice...but don't try to invoke science to justify your bizarre worldview.
