It's inherent it's built in and not a mutation...
The ability to swap DNA is preexisting...


Any change in DNA or chromosomal structure is a mutation.


Cancer is living proof of that.

Mutations are permanent...
these are free to change...
I just don't see that as evolution...

Mutation, by definition, is change.

As is evolution.

Ya but not all mutations are an indication of progress or evolution...

I should have logged out and hope you disappeared like others do when I argue with them... You are not leaving me a lot of wiggle room here...

The ability to swap genes or mutate if you prefer none the less is an inherent ability... It's not therefore a new ability although the ability used is a sign of progress...

Are you connecting evolution with progress? Why?

Evolution is about survival in changing environments. Antibiotics (and pesticides) represent changes to the environment of bacteria and insects.

You have it wrong, evolution is a product of creation.

Well I'm not confused on that I know creation and evolution are 2 different things and could walk hand and hand in the grand scope of things...

I dunno...
I'm understanding evolution as an interrelated progression and development...

I'm curious do you consider Cancer to be indicative of evolution?

Toward some goal? Other than survival?

If that's the case, then you misunderstand evolution.

I won't derail this thread any further...
I just always wanted to argue with Phage...
But because the ability to share genes is inherent and preexisting information is shared I do not see this as an example of evolution...

I should have said a progression in development...

I suppose then, that you should provide your definition of progression.

In this day and age of medical advancement, why does this happen?


It's called evolution.
It's the same principle as antibiotic resistant bacteria.


This is a conspiracy site and then it is called free market processes

If I were a libertarian I might say, "Consider that evolution in action."

No. It is a byproduct of evolution gone wrong, and a result of other influences on cellular/genetic adaptation/mutation. Cancer tends to prove how easily genetic mutations can change living cells, and actually destroy tissue by consuming it and spreading.

Ever seen what cancer can do to a person?

If creation, then it is an evil creation.

It is a result of one of the many vulnerabilities of life as we know it.

Someone created them so that people would have to buy their new anti-lice product.

Create a demand then sell them a new product that works.

So not all mutations can be considered to be evolution...

I'm 18 now...
but I have lived long enough to witness first hand the horrors of cancer... And felt the full effects of the loss it can cause...

Mutations are not considered to be evolution at all. Mutations are a mechanism whereby evolution occurs.

Different concepts.

I agree with that...
And to tell you the truth I am not against evolution in a good many ways...
But I hate that people believe that it eliminates the need or even the possibility for creation...
I infact believe creation allows for evolution and superseded any and all evolution...
But mostly I find it fun to argue about it anyway...
