Seven things Darwin didn't tell you

Seven things Darwin didn't tell you, because he didn't know.

1. Alterations in diet, climate, stress and other environmental factors cause mechanism based inheritable changes in organisms, not random mutations and selection.

An example: Italian wall lizards experienced radical changes in morphology and behavior after changing their diet from insects to plants. This occurred very rapidly, just in three decades. They even had a 'new' structure in their gut, so called Cecal Valve. Genes that control growth of the Cecal Valve were differently expressed due to the changed diet.

 2. Random mutations don't enhance the genomic information. Random mutations are genetic errors and they destroy biological information and disrupt genetic integrity.

An example: There are about 200,000 disease-causing genetic mutations in the human DNA pointing out that evolution is not happening and that so called natural selection is not able to weed those mutations out.

3. Most of so-called mutations are not random changes. Genetic changes occur due to oxidative stress, changing diet, exposure to toxins, disrupted methylation patterns, viruses etc. However, most of them still disrupt genetic integrity.

Examples:
- A lack of methyl groups in gene body may develop cancer and trigger genetic mutations.
- Viruses play a potential role in causing aberrant methylation patterns. According to a fresh study, more than 1 in 5 adults has cancer-causing HPV infection.

4. Biological information is multi-layered. There are at least three forms of biological information in the cell:

1. Gene sequences - Digital information layer
2. Epigenetic markers, 3D genome, flanking binding sites - Analog information layer
3. Gene regulatory networks, genomic integrity and stability - Meta data

Examples: 
- The cell uses cytokines as knobs instead of switches.
DNA methylation influences continuous variation in ant worker size

5. Biological information is extremely complex. The 'grammar' of the human genetic code is more complex than that of even the most intricately constructed spoken languages in the world.

6. Organisms can experience rapid variation due to epigenetic mechanisms.

7. Life is not driven by gene sequences. Genes are driven by lifestyle.

That's why Intelligent Design and Creation. Don't get lost.
