Whether or not a mutation aids reproduction (which is what evolution is about) would depend on a number of factors. A small change could be quite consequential depending on the circumstances.
Mutations are usually too small and inconsequential, or are not improvements.
Because you state it does not make it a fact. After all, you aren't a paleontologist are you? Or a geneticist I take it?
A successful mutation would be rare, and as I stated earlier, you would have to have one every year from year one
Its very interesting you brought that up my friend and I were talking about that the other day, if things cooled alot faster then thought it would distort everything we thought we know.

One thing the video points out that the universe is fine tuned for life
And that HAS to be by design.
Many of the known scientific facts of the universe if off by I percent would destroy life.
Its too fine tuned to be random
this post is a refutation of gentries work. This is a guy explaing why gentry is wrong.

You may be interested in the work by Gentry on polonium halos at www.halos.com. His thesis attempts to prove that granite was formed and cooled in the time it takes to melt an ice cube. His opposition has not had a lot of luck disproving it, either. infidels.org...
If Gentry is right, and he is currently quite considered the authority on the science above, then the Earth would have had to cool quite fast, not obeying the natural laws of physics you mention.
I suppose that's why we call these things "miracles."
Not that it's actually relevant but we actually have closer to 3 billion base pairs.
We have 6 billion, so it's simple math. I mentioned this earlier.
The human genome contains approximately 3 billion of these base pairs, which reside in the 23 pairs of chromosomes within the nucleus of all our cells.
