The Misconception about Macromutations

One rule, put forward by R. A. Fisher, one of the last century’s best known geneticists, and based on observations, clearly invalidates this hypothesis. Fisher states in his book The Genetical Theory of Natural Selection that the likelihood that a particular mutation will become fixed in a population is inversely proportional to its effect on the phenotype.1 Or, to put it another way, the bigger the mutation, the less chance it has of becoming a permanent trait within the group.

The Creation of Zebra Stripes

Zebras have very long legs, strong muscles and lungs with broad surfaces which help these beings to run long distances without getting exhausted and being forced to slow down. Even though zebras’ bones are light, they are strong and created specially for running fast. However, one of the most interesting characteristics of zebras is their fur, which is made up of black and white stripes.

The Most Loyal Creature: The Dog

By means of all these abilities, dogs can sense the smell of prey, trace it and fetch a hunter’s catch even if it is kilometers away. A sniff of something belonging to a person suffices for a police dog to find its owner. Those huge flabby-cheeked dogs the Saint Bernards, for example, can easily detect injured people stuck beneath the snow with their sensitive noses and rescue them. This extraordinary sense of smell that dogs have is itself a miracle.

The Bacterial Flagellum

One of the interesting examples of irreducible complexity that Behe gives in his book is the bacterial flagellum. This is a whip-like organ that is used by some bacteria to move about in a liquid environment. This organ is embedded in the cell membrane, and enables the bacterium to move in a chosen direction at a particular speed. Scientists have known about the flagellum for some time. However, its structural details, which have only emerged over the last decade or so, have come as a great surprise to them.

Does Rejecting Evolution Mean Rejecting Science?

A careful examination of Darwinist publications reveals this fact quite clearly. Their accounts are almost never based upon firm scientific proof. The fundamental areas where the theory collapses are glossed over in a few words, and many fantastic scenarios are written about natural history.

Bedouins and Their Debased Culture before Islam

In the days of the Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessings be upon him), as in every period of history, there were those whose crude and shallow minds could not understand the subtleties of religious morality. Faith had not settled into their hearts. Some who adopted this religion of superficiality were the Bedouins

Invertebrates’ Amazing Swimming and Defense Systems

The cuttlefish is not the only animal swimming by means of a reactive system. Octopuses also utilize this system. However, they are not active swimmers; they spend most of their time wandering over rocks and gorges in the deep sea. The inner skin of the octopus is composed of many layers of muscles one on top of another. They constitute three different types of muscles called longitudinal, circular and radial.

Interesting Features of Sea Horses

The sea horse’s head is at a right angle to its body, something which is not seen in any other fish. Consequently, sea horses swim with their bodies upright and can move their heads up and down. However, they cannot turn their heads to the side. Now let’s think about the problems that other living creatures would suffer if they could not turn their heads to the right or to the left

Darwin and the voyage of the Beagle

Darwin’s seminal book, On the Origin of Species, set forth his ideas about evolution and natural selection. These ideas were largely based on direct observations from Darwin’s travels around the globe. From 1831 to 1836, he was part of a survey expedition carried out by the ship HMS Beagle, which included stops in South America, Australia

The Cambrian Explosion: A Dazzling Variety of Life

Inspired by the original Latin name for Wales, Cambria, Sedgwick named this period the Cambrian. According to dates published by the International Subcommission on Cambrian Stratigraphy in 2002, the Cambrian Period is regarded as having begun 545 million years ago

Beaver Dams as Engineering Projects

every stage of beavers’ construction reflects intellect, planning, knowledge and calculation. But it would be irrational to credit the beaver, an animal without intellect or ability to reason, with all these qualities. Therefore, we must find an explanation for the source of the beaver’s behavior. If this intellect and planning do not belong to the beaver, who does it belong to? The answer is God, Who brings out superior features in beavers, as well as in many other creatures

Kangaroos and Their Pockets

There are four different nipples in the pouch of the mother. The new-born sucks the nipple that issues a milk with just the right temperature and amount of fat for a new-born. The other three nipples, on the other hand, contain milk meeting the needs of an older baby. In a few weeks, the new-born stops suckling its nipple and finds another nipple from which issues a milk prepared for its own needs.
