Antibiotic Resistance is not Evolution

Evolutionists like to claim that antibiotic resistance is a clear example of evolution, but that is the opposite of the truth. Variations, natural selection, mutations, yes, but what is observed has nothing to do with microbes-to-medical doctor evolution. What is going on with bacteria, then?

Evolutionists say that antibiotic resistance is evidence for evolution. Not only is this claim false, but what actually happens supports biblical creationist views.

A great deal of research, testing, and expense are involved in making antibiotics in the first place, so it's not like a company can simply whip up a batch for something new or a variation. There are three primary mechanisms that cause microbes to resist antibiotics. Instead of supporting naturalism, these actually fit in with biblical creationist views. Let's saddle up and ride on over for some detailed explanations of what's going on.
The discovery of antibiotics was one of the most important advances in medicine, profoundly improving human health. Many bacterial infections (for example, tuberculosis and wound infections) that often killed people became treatable, saving millions of lives.

In the 15 years or so following their introduction in the 1930s, deaths in the USA, for example, declined by about 220 per 100,000 population per year. All other medical technologies only reduced deaths by about a further 20 over the next 45 years.

However, the development of resistance to antibiotics threatens this success. Globally, infections caused by bacteria resistant to many or all of the currently available antibiotics are increasing.
