Another detailed genetic finding uncovers 7 mutations on coding dna that enables an eye that detects UV light to detect blue light.

Two important points on this article.

- All 7 mutations were needed. It goes to show how mutations are not binary events and often it is a collection that are required for a change.

- Secondly, 80% of the pathways researched resulted in non-functional/viable proteins. Creationists like to cite the fact that many mutations automatically result in death of the organism.

However it is never a 100% guarantee that all mutations will result in death. As a result one would expect mutations over time to provide significant change to a type of organism. Very highly improbable events become very likely to happen if there are enough trials.

Here is the article.

Very interesting article, let's see how creationists answer to it, or at least to your abstract.

Disaster is comming.

This is a great article. Thank you for sharing. I'm not sure how Creationists will take it, but it's only inevitable that the small details like this one will all eventually materialize, come together into a broader picture, and there will be no one questioning the validity of evolution. Religion evolves to encompass scientific discoveries after much stubborn refusal. This too shall pass.
A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral."
