But the bottom line is that natural selection, by itself, is powerless to create. It is a process of 'culling', of choosing between several things which must first be in existence. There is no known natural law through which matter can give rise to information, neither is any physical process or material phenomenon known that can do this."

Is it...

1. Increased genetic variety in a population? It's been observed.
2. Increased genetic material? It's been observed.
3. Novel genetic material? It's been observed.
4. Novel genetically-regulated abilities? It's been observed.
5. Something else? How is it defined?

Please try to answer the question, not change the subject. Thank you.
