Scripture study

Today I would like to share with you a few verses from the true account of Genesis, as recorded by John Launer. Please study with a prayer in your heart that what you read may fill your understanding and enrich your soul.

  1. These are the generations of man. In the beginning was deoxyribonucleic acid which begat more deoxyribonucleic acid, like unto itself.
  2. And Lo, there were rays from the heavens, and mutation came to pass. And the deoxyribonucleic acid begat unicellular organisms, which we call prokaryotes. And there was variation amongst them, and competition, so that some thrived; but others vanished from the earth, which we call natural selection.
  3. And prokaryotes multiplied upon the face of the earth: the true bacteria and also the mitochondria and the chloroplasts; and the archaebacteria. And the mitochondria and chloroplasts knew the prokaryotes, and they cleaved to one another. And together they begat the eukaryotes, which were nucleated cells. But the prokaryotes are the inheritors of the earth to this day.

Read the rest.

  1. Hydralisk,

    Welcome back to blogging….can you tell me the proofs for Steps 12 and above in Launer’s theory?
    Are there transitional species in the fossil record that I might find recorded on the web somewhere?

    bobby, its me, joey! I just got my blog up and running! Its MOSTLY media reviews, but I will have cool stuff every once in a while. Add me to your list! đŸ™‚

  3. Of course, nowadays we all know that exposed DNA particles would just oxidize and decay in the ocean, if the radiation from the sun didn’t destroy them first

    But with a generous sprinkle of wishful thinking, the sun’s radiation would be only kind enough to ‘mutate’ the helpless DNA particles, and working opposite to the current laws and mechanism of mutation, somehow mutation would ADD new DNA information to a chain, instead of destroy/shorten it (??)

    It is proper, then, that Mr. Launer decided to write this idea into a religious script, as an acceptance steeped strongly with a faith-based outlook would be required to accept & preach it

  4. Thanks for your comments!

    TJ: Absolutely. ALL species are transitional, including us. So do a search on “homo sapien” and “skeleton” or something =D

    Monteaux’s: Interesting. I wasn’t aware of that, Of course, radiation isn’t by any means the only thing that can cause mutations.

  5. Welcome

    The source of mutation isn’t really important.

    There is no form of mutation that ADDS genetic information (which addition is assumed and essential to the plausibility of the theory)– only decreases, destroys or loses genetic information, depending on which descriptive word one loves best

  6. Are you saying that a point mutation which can turn, for instance, a DNA base from an A into a G exists, but that a mutation which can turn the G back into an A does not?

  7. Not at all-

    But in that case, it wouldn’t add new, extra information to the DNA, which it would need (very VERY quickly) if it were to turn into something useful (complex, contained organism) that could fend for itself. Your given scenario of switching an A into a G and back again does not accomplish this

    The theory, necessarily, goes like this:
    1. DNA particle starts small
    2. Gets bigger (adds more DNA) exponentially to become ‘useful’ strand

    How it would feed and protect itself in the meantime in order to duplicate will also not (should not) be discussed

    I will not underestimate you as I know you see the problem

  8. Nor will I you, as I’m sure you understood what I was getting at with the ‘A to G’ scenario. If such a mutation can destroy information, then clearly the reverse mutation can create/restore information, right? If the one is possible, the other must also be.

    Clearly, mutations which add information happen all the time. Duplications, alterations, shifts, and other mutations do exist.

    But it seems what you mean by ‘information’ is functional information; information which codes for some new feature which can be expressed, and which natural selection can then act upon, yes?

    Putting aside the demand that this must happen quickly (why must it? neutral mutations can lie dormant indefinitely) it does, in fact, appear to happen. For instance, a new protein has been observed in a species of monkeys which appears to have been the result of a DNA copying error (substitution of the code for another protein), and which prevents infection from viruses.

  9. Re-gained information is possible but less likely. You’re dealing with a net loss

    I guess the important part is that the sequence needs new information quickly because it cannot last long by itself. It cannot afford to just sit there in water before it gets damaged. It does not have “forever” to survive a hostile (understatement of understatements) environment. Common causes of mutation mostly delete and damage information rather than benefit it. This is readily observable, especially when you’re working with less minimal DNA, in which each base pair becomes more vital

    The truth is, a DNA particle (or cluster of particles, making a strand) lying out in the exposed environment is about as hardy and likely to survive (let alone improve) as a dismembered human toe in the arctic desert. Or many toes, in infinite repeat experiments
