Health and Sanctity of Life
Why It Matters! X Men and Women - Our Friends and Neighbors
A new X Men movie is coming out. I like science fiction, as long as it is clear that it is science fiction. Too many times I have found that children and sometimes adults cannot distinguish between science fact and science fiction.
There are approximately 4000 mutations in the human race and only two of them have even the slightest benefit to those who have them. One is sickle cell anemia, a debilitating and fatal blood disease, the sickle cell mutation helps the person with it be resistant to malaria. The other is a mutation that is found among a small number of Italians that resists heart attacks. No mutations turn anybody into a superbeing. Mutants do walk among us; there are over 6 billion mutants in this world, you and I among them. It is estimated that the average person has 5 mutations, most of them quite harmless such as red hair and male pattern baldness.
X men and women do indeed exist, people with mutations that significantly effect their lives. People with mutations such as muscular dystrophy, hemophilia, cystic fibrosis and sickle cell anemia to name just a few. If you were to see a group of X men go by some would be in wheelchairs, some carrying oxygen bottles and all of them in very poor physical condition. Scientists today not only know what causes mutations, they also know that mutations can never add new information to any creatures DNA. Evolutionists also know that mutations can never transform any creature into an entirely new kind of creature, destroying what they have presented to the world as the main agent for supposed evolutionary change.
God created a perfect world full of perfect creatures in the beginning, from perfection there is only one way to go downhill and that is exactly what we see mutations do in the world around us.
