John Sanford, a Cornell Professor of Genetics for 25 years (semi-retired 1998), published Genetic Entropy & the Mystery of the Genome in 2005, and the excerpt over at Uncommon Descent has me literally giddy. Man, I love stuff like this – I’d like to quote passages, but the entire one page excerpt is so good, you should go read it yourself. His conclusion is thought provoking
If the Primary Axiom is wrong, then there is a surprising and very practical consequence. When subjected only to natural forces, the human genome must irrevocably degenerate over time. Such a sober realization should have more than just intellectual or historical significance. It should rightfully cause us to personally reconsider where we should rationally be placing our hope for the future.
