We looked at some papers claiming to see evolution happening in real time, to see if natural selection has actually invented a new function, or just broke an existing function.
Professor Lenski revisits a series of experiments on the bacteriophage lambda begun by his lab around 2012.
Evolutionists now increasingly believe that major adaptations are driven by neutral mutations.
Of course finches don’t multiply and cycle through generations as rapidly as bacteria. Still, these birds have been isolated on the iconic islands for some 2 million years.
Lenski agrees that the beneficial mutations seen in his Long Term Evolution Experiment are overwhelmingly degradative or loss-of-function ones.
