Genetics

This is meant as a source of information to specific questions or statements on the AiG webpage.
For a more general introduction to genetics, look here.

Statement: No natural process, which resulted in information forming automatically in matter, has ever been observed.
Answer: This is simply not true. Look at
this (full text here) description of production of random, functional RNAs.

Statement: ”There is no known observable process by which new genetic information can be added to the genetic code. None.”
Answer: Look here. Scroll down to 'You here this one a lot'.

Statement: If you calculate the chance that a protein with a certain amino-acid sequence will form at random, you end up with ridiculously low numbers.
Answer:
If you could make such a calculation, it would be irrelevant, as you have no idea how efficient the original protein was. Very low efficiency correspond to very low specificity, and hence a large number of possible sequences.
On top of that proteins with the same function in different organisms can be as different as proteins with completely different functions.
