An Assault on Saltatory Evolution

Way back in olden times, evolutionism was a religion that believed bigger things came from smaller things. Apparently, most evolution proponents did not believe in the slow and gradual processes that Darwin proposed, but instead believed in saltation of one sort or another. The word saltation used to mean a dancing or hopping move, but that has been left behind. Evolutionists and geologists use it now.

In an effort to support the idea of evolutionary leaps, researchers actually worked against their own proposal.

Saltatory evolution is the idea that instead of gradual progression, evolution happened in quick bursts. Gould and Eldridge suggested a form of this and called it punctuated equilibria. They brought this up because there was no evidence for gradual evolution, so they wanted to substitute something else with no evidence. Makes perfect sense.

In an effort to support satatory evolution, researchers were speculating that "disordered" proteins could be a place where it happens. Their assumptions actually worked against their proposition.

Instead of supporting evolution, they provided no evidence. Worse, they assaulted their own system by providing no evidence whatsoever. There is no disorder, but only functions in proteins put in place by the Master Engineer that scientists do not as yet understand.
Researchers from the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute (BDI) in Australia, have identified what they have termed “Structural Capacitance Elements” in mutated proteins that are associated with many different types of human diseases. They wanted to determine whether point mutations in disordered regions would generate localized regions of microstructure. In other words, they wanted to see if the mutations would impose a region of order to the disordered regions of certain proteins. These new structures may be able to more readily fold and may induce other proteins to bind together with them at the SCE microstructural region. The authors’ contention is that these SCEs could be a mechanism for saltatory evolution rather than slow and gradual neo-Darwinian evolution. Their claim is that in proteins with long disordered regions (LDRs), point mutations could form their newly named “structural capacitance elements,” which could supposedly increase order and make microstructures. However, this was not borne out in the study. The results were without exception neutral or negative. Looking at the evidence presented in this paper leads to the inescapable conclusion that there actually is no evidence for evolution. The researchers seriously misinterpret the IDPs, postulating disorder when there is none. They then extrapolate from that proposed disorder to find a mechanism that could create order out of disorder. Unfortunately for them, their chosen mechanism, saltatory mutations, have been proven to only create disorder, not order.
