The human genome is degrading; Dr. John Sanford's book, Genetic Entropy points to this. He was a Cornell professor for more than 25 years. In his book (p150) he wrote: "There appears to be a close parallel between the aging of a species and the aging of an individual. Both seem to involve the progressive accumulation of mutations. Mutations accumulate both within our reproductive cell lines and our body cell lines. Either way, the misspellings accumulate until a threshold is reached when things rapidly start to fall apart." Is there hope? Jesus!
