Can we build a science of human evolution that people can trust?

Human genome is rapidly deteriorating

This is bad news for proponents of the theory of evolution

Summary:
1. 3–7% of people will be diagnosed with a genetic condition.
2. Globally, 3–6% of babies are born with a physical finding called a birth defect.
3. 1 in 10 people in the U.S. has a rare disease.
4. Genetic conditions affect people of all ages and ethnic groups. Some genetic conditions are more common in certain ethnic groups.
5. All diseases or medical conditions have a genetic component (except trauma).

1. One in 10 Americans is living with a rare disease.
2. Approximately 80 percent of rare diseases are not acquired; they are inherited. They are caused by mutations or defects in genes.
3. Rare disease affects between 25–30 million people in the United States and approximately 30 million people in the European Union.
4. Orphan or rare diseases are often not pursued by the pharmaceutical industry because they provide little financial incentive for the private sector to make and market new medications to treat or prevent them and because there are not enough patients to make research cost-effective.

“Following are a few examples of rare diseases that afflict children: Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia, Angelman Syndrome, Apert Syndrome, Aase-Smith Syndrome, Batten Disease, Carpenter Syndrome, Coarctation of the Aorta, Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML), Crouzon Syndrome, Cystic Fibrosis, Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, Ewing’s Sarcoma, Eisenmenger Syndrome, Fabry Disease, Fragile X, Epidermolysis Bullosa, Gastroschisis, Gaucher Disease, Hirschsprung’s Disease, Hurler Syndrome, Krabbe Disease, Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease, Marfan’s Disease, Microcephaly, Niemann Pick Disease, Neuroblastoma, Neurofibromatosis, Patent Ductus Arteriosus, Pompe Disease, Prune Belly (Eagle-Barrett) Syndrome, Sanfilippo Syndrome, Spina Bifida, Sickle Cell Anemia, Tay-Sachs, Tetralogy of Fallot, Tourette’s syndrome and Williams Syndrome.”

“The number of autism cases has skyrocketed in the past few decades. In the 1970s and 1980s, about one out of every 2,000 children had autism. Today, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that one in 150 8-year-olds in the United States has an autism spectrum disorder, or ASD. This expanded definition refers not only to autism but also to a collection of brain development disorders such as Asperger’s syndrome.”

My comment: Every time human DNA is passed from one generation to the next it accumulates 100–200 new mutations. Gene mutations began showing up in last 5,000 years of human existence. Modern science is aware of 200,000 disease-causing genetic mutations at population level. Conclusions are obvious: Evolution is not happening.
