Looks like mutations don't support evolutionists' claims.

The theory of evolution is not a proof. You can PROVE nothing in science. The theory of evolution is a scientific paradigm that explains the facts of evolution.

Also, the author of your video doesn't get to make up his own words and definitions of words to suit his own claims. What's worse, since he has stated early on in his career that he intendedto "destroy Darwinism", I hardly think that qualifies him as an objective observer. Instead, it makes him the practitioner of a logical fallacy called creating a theory and then fitting the facts to it. That is not how science works, and as an alleged scientist, he should be ashamed for even attempting it.

He also appears to have had a rather colorful history, having spent time in prison as a draft dodger, and was/is a member of the Unification Church, and a member of the Discovery Institute, which is not a scientitic organization, but a religious organization dedicated to the sole purpose of imposing their religious beliefs on our school children. He also signed a ppetition stating that HIV doesn't cause AIDS. Well, surely the man is a kook. Nough said.

That little ditty made me laugh out loud. That's what the scientific community is all about nowadays. From evolution to global warming to the debate on abiogenesis, "research" is all about the research grant and "proving" the theory.

Scientists estimate an Aspen stand in Utah, called Pando, may be tens of thousands of years old, though estimates vary widely. And a creosote bush growing in the Mojave Desert -- dubbed King Clone -- has been reliably dated at nearly 12,000 years old using carbon isotopes.

Stromatolites are one of the longest living forms of life on this planet. They can be traced back 3.5 billion years to the early Archean eon (Awaramik and Sprinkle, 1999).

--Now that is old...

Such "grants" have made it possible to type on a computer and share one's opinions with the world, as opposed to spending time sitting in a cave, etching stones and calling it... "These are God's words".

Grants can be good. But grants can also demand results when they aren't necessarily there. Today's scientific world has become politicized. Look at al gore and his hundreds of millions that he's made over the past 10 years off the global warming scare.

Science has become politicized because people like you want to see it as such, as opposed to what it is. For that matter, how long do you feel science has been "politicized"?

you don't honestly think that maybe scientists are motivated by funding?
