If I understand your position, you can not provide an example of a mutation that produces an increase in information, yet you maintain that we are here as a result of a random process. It seems to me evolutionary theory would be falsified on the grounds that all mutations either result in a loss of information at best, or at worst, a deleterious effect on the phenotype. The Creationist position maintains that God created "kinds" of life. These kinds have a built in ability to produce an abundant variety of life according to which genes are selected via natural or artificial selection. For example, the ancestor of the domestic dog contained all of the genetic information that is phenotypically displayed by the poodle, Irish Setter etc. Further, it is a well known fact that pure bred canines are genetically weak as a result of having information bred out of them. This is evident by the many congenetal vagarities that beset them. An example would be that Springer Spaniols are prone to hip-joint problems, Dalmations have temperment problems etc. Ironically, Adolph Hitler in his perverted attempt at creating a super-race, would have been better served to encourage inter- racial marriage.
