: If life originated from a single-celled organism, then one assumes that information must accrue over time in order to account for the comutationsmplexity we see in the present biosphere. Can anyone here provide an example of a mutation or evolutionary process that has led to an increase in information?

I cannot provide that, but I do think that our brain is an expanded example of how genetic mutations can keep the good stuff and the bad stuff of those that die are not allowed to pass it on. Our brains give us the ability to learn from our mistakes, and today with our (godlike) intelligence can even learn from outside the genetic instinctual realm, and even a further advance in this system is our abiblity to abstractly visualize actions and results without the risk of actually attempting them. This has raised our survivablity odds unimaginably, the proof is in the pudding. Here we are, a measly ole mammal who has risen to king of the earth thanks to the demise of most of the dinos, and all the believers said "god musta killed em!" Well, whatever the reason, most of them were no longer arourd to stifle our plans for complete dominance, and we have made it, so now what?

Maybe that will help some, learning by experiance is a process which has its origins in the begining
