100 Years of Fruit Fly Tests Show No Evolution

July 29, 2010

After 100 years of tests and experiments to accelerate “evolution”, and countless generations later, fruit flies are still just fruit flies. Evolution as most people believe, is a farce.  See excerpt from article below:

Fruit flies, with their short generation times and only four pairs of chromosomes, presented prime testing ground for evolution. In laboratories worldwide, they have been subjected to all manner of mutation-inducing phenomena, including hosts of chemicals and radiation treatments, to try and accelerate evolution-mimicking mutations. After all this, fruit flies should have certainly exemplified evolution by now. But they haven’t.

Fact is, God created this world.

    As one who studies , I can confirm the concluding point: Yes, I did.

      Whoops, looks like brackets magically remove words. What the post originally said was:

      As one who studies Drosophila melanogaster, I can confirm the concluding point: Yes, I did.

        You’ve kinda lost me? The concluding point about the fruit flies?

    My mum and I are looking to develop a blog site comparable to this for our internet site, I stumbled across your site looking to get ideas on the theme and layout. I am taking some coding class while attending college but not confident that I would be able to develop a blog like this one at this time. Did you code this blog all by yourself or use a qualified?

      I just used a wordpress theme. It’s pretty simple. I’m not a programmer myself.

    Just because god created stuff, does not mean evolution does not exist. Plants evolve all the time, and much faster too. Fact is, they have to keep adapting. Fruit fly’s on the other hand can eat almost anything, and therefore have no need to evolve.

    I dont believe man evolved from monkey. It’s more likely a parallel evolution if at all. But, there is no denying that plants, bacteria, and viruses all evolve very fast.

      Well if by “evolve” you mean adaptation, then yes I agree. Nature was designed with inherent abilities to adapt to various conditions to survive. Like you mentioned, bacteria are good examples.

      But if you mean evolving, by freak mutations to create a brand new species, I don’t buy it. Prime example, dogs. No matter the iteration, dogs are still dogs, or more specifically, domesticated wolves. Pigeons are still pigeons, finches still finches, no matter the variety in beak sizes or colours. Micro ‘evolution’ is possible, like variations within species, but not macro (e.g. dogs spawning big cats or some new species of animal.).
