If you don't believe in evolution

If you don't believe in evolution do you plan to react to the Mexican Flu as though it were one of the already existing species of flu, or (like the doctors recommend) as though it were a new species that has evolved by mutating from a never before seen mix of genetic material from several distinct flu strains?

  • Mutation is different from evolution, especially when it comes to germs!! lol

  • Actually it's not that different, it's just that we can see the results much fast based on the fact that a virus is a much less complicated organism than a monkey

  • I have to agree mutation is different than evolution as far as the theory behind this two process.
    Though i believe in evolution, and so my 2 sons. They always say we were once moneky. ( That's my smart children!!)

  • I believe in virus mutation, but do not believe in the evolution from a single celled organism into the complex species that make up our world. If that were true, wouldn't all the organisms be close to the same? Plus the bible says we were created in our own forms, not that God had one idea and it got out of hand.

  • A virus isn't life. Viruses have always mutated. I can't believe you even think you can compare a virus to living critters.

  • mutation isn't necessarily EVOLUTION. Viruses must mutate all the time.

    Sure they would. Thar's exactly why they are close to the same. The same nucleotides are present in either DNA or RNA to express genetic information in the form of genes. ATP fuels cellular metabolism in single cell organisms the same way it does in multicellular organisms. Humans and chimps share about 99% of genes. That's the beauty of evolution. It really does show descent from common ancestor.

  • By "Mexican Flu" do you really mean "Swine flu" that is going aroun there and in a few states here? That part of evolution happens on a consistent basis. Viruses mutate and change, becoming resistant to medicines, etc, because of overuse of antibiotics. Evolution as a whole, as in we started out as one celled organisms and worked our way out fo the mire after this world just happened to cone together after an accident? Dont think so. If that type of evolution were true, where are the missing links? Why are not all beings on earth at the same evolutionary status? Why in several thousand years have humans not changed? Still ten toes, ten fingers, 2 eyes, one nose. What's changed? According to evolutionary laws things must continually change. Where is the change? Or has an intelligent being planned the whole thing? : )
