I Dont Have Enough Faith to be an Evolutionist - Skepticism of Evolution

In that sense, yes, evolution happens and it's been observed. But that's not the same thing as one type of creature becoming another, even from a common ancestor. That requires new, additional genetic information, and the evolutionists have yet to show that that's possible. Most mutations are fatal, and the rates of the non-fatal ones are far too low even with millions of years, and this gradual change is not what we see in the fossil record.

The sort of evolution you're talking about only involves already-existing genetic information, which works with what's already there, sometimes turning on or off, or selecting for a particular version of a trait.
