Closed to the Evidence

In 2005, Dr. John Sanford, a Cornell genetics researcher, co-inventor of the gene sequencing gun, and holder of 25 patents in genetic research, wrote a book called Genetic Entropy and the Mystery of the Genome. In it he showed how the entire modern basis for modern evolution, mutation and natural selection, is absolutely dead wrong.

One would hope that people would really want to know what this top researcher has shown from his scientific research.  However, I ran across a post on a skeptic’s forum which really shows the close-mindedness of those bent on preserving the fable of evolution:

“My office is gearing up for a pandemic exercise and management issued a memo regarding a new strain of bird flu. I have a creationist friend at work and thought it would be interesting to see his response to this formal recognition of evolution at work. A couple of days later he emailed suggesting I read John Sanford’s Genetic Entropy and the Mystery of the Genome, my friend’s anti-evolution response. I’m not familiar with the book and certainly not a geneticist so was hoping to find some information debunking the book.”

First of all a new strain of virus is not evidence for broad evolution, but notice, that the skeptic’s  response is not one of openness, but one which is very closed:  I don’t want to read the book, but quick, give me something to debunk the book!

Actually, Dr. Sanford’s work does not need to be “debunked” but really needs to be read by this individual as well as by professors all over this country. However, the mind cannot be unlocked when all the keys are thrown away!
