What are the choices. The creation of new information.


What is not involved in natural selection is the creation of new information, and new species.

Natural selection can only eliminate variations that are less well adapted to the environment.

Darwin wrongly assumed that the information in the cell was infinite in its variation and that natural selection could cause a slow gradual change in living things that could result in descent through modification that would explain all living things from an original living cell.

Neo Darwinism attributed the source of new information to random accidental changes in the cell called mutations. Over 100 years of experimentation has failed to provide any empirical evidence that mutations can create new information.

The study of DNA has shown that the changes in species are usually caused by the loss of genetic information due to mutations.
