The Natural Direction of Life Is Degeneration, Not Evolution?
Mutations lead to the loss of genetic information and consequently the loss of genetic potential. This results in what is termed “genetic load” for a population of organisms. Genetic load is the amount of mutation in a kind of organism that affects its fitness for a particular environment. As genetic load increases, the fitness decreases and the organism progresses towards extinction as it is unable to compete with other organisms for resources such as food and living space.
An increase in genetic potential through mutation has not been observed, while the increase in genetic load via mutation is observable in all organisms and especially in man.
